Sounds like your upper thread tension is too loose. Try tightening the tension on the top thread, but first, make sure the machine is threaded correctly through the tension disks.

The lower stitching on my machine is not consistant, why?


Wrong size needle or wrong type of thread for the weight or type of fabric. For instance, you should use smaller needle size for light weight fabrics.

Sewing a topstitch


Top stitching is usually done with straight stitch, ie stitch width on zero and stitch length on 2.5 but it depends on the application and the effect you are trying to get. Normal top stitch is where you might be stitching a facing down on the outside of a neckline, so you might want to stitch about 5mm away from the edge of the fabric. Always stitch from the outside of the garment, the finished side so you can turn on corners and control the fabric. If you have a clear pressure foot, then this will make watching the stitching easier. Not sure what your problem is with this technique so feel free to add more in comments if I've missed something.

I am trying to sew a boat canvas top with sunbrella canvas. my top stitch is beautiful but the bottom stitch is loose and messy. Is this just a tension adjustment and if so what should I be adjusting?


Try adjusting the top tension dial to tighten up the loose stitching on the underside. Generally if you have loose threads underneath, its the top tension and visa versa.

However, if you are using a thread heavier than normal sewing thread through the needle and bobbin (which you probably need for this canvas) then the machine may struggle. I've sewed vinyl seat covers and gave up with my domestic machine and purchased a second hand industrial Singer machine 20U to cope with this heavier weight textile. Generally for anything heavier than upholstery fabric a domestic machine may not be strong enough.

How do i adjust the loose thread on top? Using the 3 thread stitch the top loop is loose and bulging over edge instead of smooth with rest of stitches. Setting is set to recommended setting but is still...


I always adjust my overlocker stitch in several ways. I start test serging with the blade set right out to the right so that it "fills" the stitching. I'll set all the thread dials to the middle setting, ie. 5. Then I test serge, and check the stitch formation. If the needle is looping underneath, then I'll tighten it "A LITTLE". If the looper threads are lying off the cut edge of the fabric, then I'll dial both the top and bottom looper numbers up a little to make those threads tighter.

Each fabric behaves differently depending on its "hand" so the right stitch settings do vary, ie. organza is different to heavy weight cotton or denim. So if my inital setting is then "bunching" up the fabric within the stitching, I will then lower the numbers for the top and bottom looper to release the thread some. And if the fabric is very soft and light and still bunches up, then I will move the blade over to the left some, cutting a narrower edge within the overlocking so the threads lie better.

So revist the settings, check that the cones are flowing freely, thread is into the tension devices fully, then retest the stitching. If it is the top looper only that is looping off the edge, and not the bottom as well, and they are both set to the same number, then I'd be a bit suss about the tension dial.

Hello ... I have a Husqvarna 2000 ... from new. I am trying to use the twin needle , and it is gathering like a corded stitch ... too tight. I have the book supplied with the machine , and I can't find...


I don't know your machine but the twin needles are generic so I will give you a couple of options. First thing to try is turn your upper thread tension down to 3. If that doesn't work try using a wider twin needle. The width goes up to 4.0 and some machines (check your manual) have the ability to use a 6.0 twin needle. If you are using a lightweight fabric you can use a tearaway or light to medium wash away stabilizer on top of the fabric. If using tearaway (like paper) draw your stitching line on it and pin it to your fabric. You only need a strip an inch or two wide and the length of your stitching line. It doesn't have to be all one piece. If you use wash away (like plastic wrap) just dampen each end of the strip and place it over your stitching line and it will stick. When you start sewing it will stay in place and you can tear it off after stitching. It will keep the fabric between your needles flat. The 389 presser foot is made to be used with cording under your fabric so you have a raised look to your stitching rows. I hope this helps. Please email me back if I can be of any more help.

Sir I am owning a Janome Memory Craft 10001 but recently it's not working properly in ordinary sewing mode the top side of the fabric the stitch looks okay but underneath it is loose and while embroidering...


Usually If the underneath is loose it is the top tension that is the problem. If it is the top stitching that is loose it is the bottom tension. Hope this helps.

I always have problems with loading the bobbin, when I think it is loaded properly and begin sewing, it balls up and doesn't stitch properly on the back side of the fabric. Top stitch is fine, underneath...


the bobbin case has a small screw on the side for adjusting the tension, use a tiny screw driver to finely adjust the tension and sew on a scrap until the stitch looks good always turn the screw clockwise to turn the tension up and counter clockwise to loosen it

Desgin stitch out on Futura 250


It sounds as though the design is stitching but the machine is skipping stitches. If this is the case, be sure you hoop the tear away in the hoop with your fabric.Make sure the fabric is taut. Use a new needle and a good quality thread.If this doesn't solve your problem, try the design on a different type of fabric.
