SOURCE: Need to know how to set the tension to sew hems on

Re-thread the machine and make sure that the needle is in properly. The tension would not cause the thread to break.

If it is not working, what is the machine doing? Try re-threading the machine again, check the needle to make sure that it is in correctly. There are no set numbers for tension- it is a feel, push, pull. If you could e-mail me back with a better description of what the machine is doing or not doing,

What number do I set the Tension for sewing fleece fabric on a singer classic

No pre-set "setting" value for fleece, try a test sew to see how machine corrects for thicknesses. If sewing a lot of fleece remember to change needle when you go back to standard fabrics.The fiber dulls rotary cutter blade and dulls needles quickly.

you have to use a different needle on fleece than you do on cotton, look in the sewing machine manual and see which needle is suggested for your sewing machine and also if the tension needs to be adjusted.

Upper tension when sewing fleece

This seems silly to ask but are you remembering to put down the foot? Try re-threading the upper thread with the foot raised... then try again. Make sure that your thread spool isn't catching the thread in that little thread keeper slot. Also make sure it isn't spooling in such a way that it wraps extra lines of thread around the spool pin. Also make sure you are using a Needle designed for sewing fleece.
