Question about Janome Sewing Machines
When ever you have bunching thread like that it can be a few things.
1. Not properly drawing the threads back under the foot when beginning a seam (grasp both and gently draw them to the back of the machine when starting.)
2. Your feed dogs could be down or not adjusted well.
3. Your top tension is too loose for the fabric or top thread is not threaded properly. (this is usually the problem)
4. bad or wrong needle for the fabric.
Thread can be an issue as well, it does age and get frayed causing problems.
First make sure you test on a scrap of the same fabric. Tighten your upper tension to see if that helps. If not RAISE your pressure foot and read thread the top thread making sure the thread sits in the uptake lever. Try again on your scrap.
