How do u end the stiching


You shorten the stitch length and either reverse a few (5 or 6) stitches or stitch forward a few stitches. Some people will stitch in place but that frequently causes a knot on the underside of the fabric. You can also tie the thread tails together (especially when sewing fine fabric like chiffon, silk, etc.) and clip the tails close to the knot.

The stiches on my machine change size. What am I doing wrong.


When you say they change size, what are you referring to? If you change the type of fabric on the sewing advisor the stitches will change in relationship to the type of fabric selected which can cause them to change size. The other issue may be in feeding the fabric to the machine. If the fabric gets caught on something and is not feeding freely, it can cause the stitches to elongate.

Thread mess at the underside of the fabric


Hi, maybe your bobbin is turning the wrong way and you need to flip it over. Or you don't have any top tension. Be sure the thread is in between the tension disks with the foot up. Its also possible that there is a burr on the hook part that goes around and grabs the top thread. The thread will catch on the burr and cause this issue. Usually after breaking a needle. Then the burr would need to be polished off.

THREAD GET BUNCHED UP UNDERNEATH THE FABRIC, THE STICHES SEEM TO BE INCOMPLETE THE TOP LOOKS GOOD THAN I TURN IT OVER AND THE THEAD IS BUNCHED AND LONG LOOPS OF THREAD ARE LEFT. THANKS LOU


Hi Lou! This sounds like a tension problem--the tension on the top thread is too loose. Try using different color threads on the top and bobbin, then carefully rethread everything. Stitch a couple of inches and check the underside. If the top stitches look fine and the bottom ones are loose and loopy, and with the pressure foot down, tighten the tension. Move the knob or dial (whichever you have) just a little bit. Sew a couple of inches more, and recheck. Continue to sew and recheck, gradually tightening the tension, until you see little if any bobbin thread on the top or top thread on the underside of the fabric.

Let me know if this helps, ok?

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
