Question about Consew Sewing Machines
You can find a visual guide on the proper threading of your machine at http://www.sewusa.com/Threading_Diagrams/Threading_Pages/Consew_Sewing_Machine_Threading/consew_210_220_threading_diagram.htm. What other adjustments are you thinking of? If you have loose thread on the top or bottom, you would need to adjust the tension. The best way to do that is to start by having a different color thread in the top and in the bobbin. Then this little lesson on tension works the same with any machine.
Thread your machine with the presser foot UP. The disks that control the tension (threadgoes through them) are tightened up if the foot is down. Change the machine tension with the presser foot DOWN.Because the disks won't be engaged (see above) if the foot is up, the diskswon't move. Start at the middle setting, 3. Go up to tighten, decrease toloosen. Each machine is different, even 2 different machines of the same model.The best thing to do is start at 3 and use a different color in the top andbobbin thread so you can easily see what changes to the tension do to yourstitches. Now use a straight stitch a sew 3 or so inches. Take a lookat the top and bottom of the fabric. You don't want to see any (or at least notmuch) of the other color showing from the other side. Loops on the bottom of the fabric means you need to tighten(increase) your top tension. If you're stitches on the bottom are causingpuckering, then you need to loosen you're top tension. For the most part, youreally don't want to touch your bobbin tension-leave that to a repairtechnician. The factory setting shouldn't be touched except by someone whoreally knows what they're doing. Keep sewing a few inches at a time until you have the resultsyou want. Now you're tension is where you need it!
