Question about Bernina Sewing Machines

1 Answer

Iam new to sewing. Ive never had a Bernia 930 machine. Iam having problems creating stitches. The top thread is threaded correctly and the bobbin is in correctly. Iam able to bring bottom thread up but then after I drop the foot and try to sew the threads either bunch up under or around the needle or the top thread comes unthreaded.

Have you try changing the needle
sometimes the needle & thread are not compatable--here's how to check

Cut 6-8 inch piece of thread of the spool you are going to use for your project
Take the needle you are going to use for the project
& insert the thread thru the eye of the needle
& lift one end of the thread to a 45 degree angle
& if the needle is the right size for the thread it will slide down the thread
But if the needle hangs on the thread you need one size larger needle for the thread

Make sure the bobbin has a 3-5 inch thread tail
Then make sure the top thread has a 3-5 inch tail
& make sure the threads are always pulled to the back behind the needle area
happy sewing

When sewing it skips stitches also the thread keeps breaking.


Remove the thread from the machine.
Install a brand new needle.
RAISE the presser foot and rethread the top thread.
Verify the thread path is correct.
Load and thread the bobbin case & install it. Verify it is correct.
Set the top tension at the midway point.

Upside down stitching


Am having a difficult time picturing this. Sounds like the upper thread is creating loops under the fabric and the bobbin thread is showing on the top of the fabric.

Make sure to use a brand new needle.

Remove the thread from the machine
ALWAYS raise the presser foot and rethread the upper thread.
Make sure the thread path is correct.

Check that the bobbin is turning the correct direction in the bobbin case and the bobbin thread is threaded through the bobbin tension correctly.

Set the upper tension to the midway point (factory standard), however, this setting may need to be tweaked for your particular machine.

Bring the bobbin to the top of the project Before beginning to stitch.
How and Why to Bring up the Bobbin Thread

Retest--begin sewing slowly.

If the upper thread is still showing on the other side of the fabric, the tension is too loose. If it is pulling the bobbin thread up to the top of the fabric, the upper tension is too tight

OR the bobbin thread tension is too loose. (CAUTION: make only small adjustments to bobbin tension--1/8 of a turn at a time!!! It also helps to mark the screw groove location with magic marker on the bobbin case BEFORE making any changes so you can back it out and return to the original setting.)

If it is creating a thread mess (thread nest) under the fabric, either the machine is not threaded correctly or you have forgotten to lower the presser foot before beginning to stitch.

Make sure you are starting with a brand new needle!

Remove all the thread from the machine.

Check that the bobbin thread is smoothly wound onto the bobbin and that the bobbin is inserted and thread properly in the machine.

ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread the upper thread. Check that the thread path is correct.

Set the upper tension to the midway point on the dial--this is usually the factory setting but may alter over time with use. Once you get your machine stitching without a mess, you can gently alter the upper tension until the two threads meet in the middle of the fabric.

Remember to lower the presser foot before beginning to stitch.

It also helps to pull the bobbin thread up to the top of the fabric and either wrapping both thread tails around a finger on the left hand or gently holding the thread tails between the left index finger and thumb. Then SLOWLY begin stitching.

Looped threads


Hello Rosemary
Looped thread on the underside are created by the upper thread. Loops on the top of the fabric are created by the bobbin thread. Whichever one is looping, has very little tension. This may be corrected by:
1. Re-threading the upper thread according to manufacturer's specifications.
2. Re-wind bobbin and re-set it into bobbin case and bobbin case area according to manufacturer's specifications.
3. Ensure that the needle is correctly installed and is the correct needle for the sewing machine.
4. Ensure that he bobbin being used is the correct one for the machine.
5. Double check that the tension on the upper thread is at the correct setting.
6. Double check that the tension unit is clean and free of dust, lint or lodged thread/s.
7. Double check that the bobbin tension is correctly set ... if you are comfortable doing so, otherwise leave it for a qualified technician
8. Make sure that he presser foot is down when stitching.
Please let me know how you go.
Happy stitching.

Top thread won't create a stitch


Hi! Check that you installed the new needle correctly. There is a flat side on the needle shank and that has to be facing the rear (away from you) on this machine in order for the top thread to catch the bobbin thread and make a stitch.


Let me know if this works, ok?

There is a small metal 'thingamajig' that the bobbin thread goes by when it sew and every so often the plastic piece goes by that metal thing and cause loops on the underside. why is it doing this?


Be sure that your bobbin thread is correctly placed, is the correct thread for the fabric, usually the same as the top thread, the needle is correct size for fabric. Correct tension - balance your tension, use new needle for each project and correct pressure. Have the machine cleaned-lint build up. Use new thread, sometimes old thread breaks down and creates skip stitches.
