Question about Sewing Machines
Help! My sewing machine is wacked out! I was trying to sew and the thread kept breaking from the top stich and the bottom stich became loose and tangled in the bobbin area. I would only be able to sew about an inch of fabric before the problem started. The needle would get stuck and not move...and I would literally have to get needle nose pliers out to unsnarl the thread under the needle...what a mess! Not sure if I am explaining this right...I have an older model that has never given me problems...I bought this one in either '94 or '95 and have sewn with it more as a hobby now I am doing a lot of crafting with it. I do occassionally use either rabbit fur or light leather but that has never been an issue until just a few days ago.
Well, I could have written this. I bought a used model from a repairman about a year ago. I have a Model 537FA and I'm going to throw it out in the rain leftover from TS Fay if I don't find some kind of help. :) I'm thinking it's a tension issue, but I can't seem to find a fix.
Does your tension on your top thread sometimes tighten to impossible to move in the middle of sewing. I know that mine does this and it causes the top thread to break. I don't know what's causing the bobbin mess.
Maybe someone will help us? Please!
