Try changing the needle
also check the top thread tension
check for lint under needle plate
some needles & thread aren't compatable--try this
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

What is wrong when the underside of embroidery has bunched thread


Hello

The bunched-up thread on the underside is the needle thread. Check that the upper thread is threaded correctly, passing through all the required thread guides and that the thread is securely lodged in the tension assembly ... there should be reasonable tension when upper thread being pulled by hand.
Also check that:
- there are no 'dust bunnies' or a piece of thread hiding in the tension assembly, and that
- the needle is inserted correctly and that it is a system 130/705H Embroidery needle.

Happy Stitching

When i run a straight stitch, the top of the fabric looks well sewn; the thread on the bottom of the fabric, however, bunches up-it looks nothing like the top stitch.


Is it really the bobbin thread that is bunching under the fabric, or is it really the top thread that is creating loops and "bird nests" under the fabric???

Rethread your upper thread. BEFORE you thread the upper thread, be sure to RAISE the presser foot. This releases the upper thread tension disks so the thread is firmly seated in the tension disk.

If it continues to be a problem, then the upper tension needs to be tightened. Adjust slightly, then test. Repeat until the upper and lower threads meet in the middle of the fabric.

The thread for the top needle just sews and loops onto the lower thread


I think you are saying that there is a loop showing on the bottom of the lower thread stitch. If the lower stitch looks correct and not bunching, you will need to change the tension on the upper stitch. Make sure that your threads are firmly inserted within the discs also before adjusting the tension. It doesn't take much to change the tension so take it slowly.

12 wt thread


12 wt thread generally will not work well in the bobbin...


"Aurifil 12wt Thread
Aurifil 12 wt thread is ideal for hand quilting, big stitch hand quilting and machine quilting. 12 weight thread creates a more defined and often primitive look. It's great for designs that use a longer stitch length if using a machine. When machine quilting with 12 wt thread, use 40 wt in the bobbin, increase your stitch length, lower your tension, use Topstitch size 90 needles and stitch slowly."

It sounds as though the problem is with the tension in the bobbin. Check to make sure the thread is pulled through the tensioner on the bobbin case, if it is check and adjust the tension on the case.

I bought a second hand Juki industrial machine , model DDL 5550-7, but struggle to get the tension of the stitches right. where do you set the lower stitches tension


upper tension sets the lower thread tension (upper thread is what you see on the underside of the fabric). Bobbin tension is for the thread you see on the top of the fabric
