Stitches not even

When stitching, the bobbin thread is very loose and bunched up. The top is too tight. Have redone bobbin, rethreaded machine, changed tensions, changed needle and still the probelm does not correct.

Top stitch is fine bottom is loose. Have tried adjusting tension but not working. If I get tension too tight breaks thread so I gradually change tension to no avail. Please help


Check your stitch sample. The loose stitches under the fabric--are they actually top thread???? Usually,stitch problems under the fabric is a result of a top thread problem. In this case, it could be bird nesting.

Remove the top thread from the machine.
Install a brand new needle.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot.
Rethread from the beginning.

When stitching on my Juki 1541 the top stitching is perfect but the stitching from the bobbin is loose. how to fix, I did try sighing the screw on the bobbing , did not work please help!!!!!!!


When the bobbin stitching is off the problem is usually with the top thread. Unthread and rethread the machine making sure it is threaded correctly and is securely in the tension disk. If you still have trouble try using a new needle.

Hi. I have a Necchi MOD559. For some reason the stitches on the bottom stay too loose, so that I get little string hooks and not a clean tight stitch. From the top it looks great. Advice anyone?


Yep, It is called bird nesting or thread nesting. The number one reason is that the top thread is not seated completely in the top tension disk.

Install a brand new needle.
Remove the top thread from the machine.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Confirm the thread path is correct.
Now recheck your machine stitching.

Remember if the thread issue shows under the fabric, it is a top thread problem. If the thread issue shows on top of the fabric, it is a bobbin problem.

If the top thread still shows on the underside of the fabric, you may need to tighten the top thread so it will pull the bobbin thread up.

Got a Singer Esteem 1732 and the bobbin test shows it has no tension at all (which shows on the stitch)


normally loose bottom stitches indicate a problem with the needle thread tension not the bobbin. try removing top thread completely and then rethread machine with presser foot down, if you do it with foot raised auto tension will not function

Bobbin Issues


On the bobbin holder, there is a tiny adjuster you should be able to undo or do up with fingernail or small screwdriver cotton should be firm when pulled by hand not to loose or not to tight.

Clean under needle plate where feed dogs are for lint
Clean bobbin area for lint or loose threads

Sewing a bunch of thread from the bottom, this stops the machine from actually sewing


Yes, it does. There are a couple of reasons the bobbin thread could be bunching up on the underside of the fabric. It could simply be that the machine needs cleaning. Take the bobbin assembly out, brush all the old lint out as best you can, reoil the machine once it's all clean, and make sure there aren't any little bits of thread caught in the bobbin assembly. Rethread the machine (carefully) and change the needle. This solves the problem usually--especially if the machine was sewing along fine and the problem develops suddenly. '
The other thing to check is your tension. It could be that the top tension is too loose. But different color thread in the top and in the bobbin, stitch a few inches (be sure to held the top and bobbin thread ends behind your needle as you start to stitch) and check. WIth the pressure foot down, adjust the tension, and stitch again. Keep stitching, checking, and adjusting until you see little if any bobbin thread on the top or top thread on the bobbin.
Another thing to reminder: use the appropriate thread and needle for the fabric you're sewing.
Let me know if this works, ok?

Topand bottom stitches are not even


Could be a tension issue.

Try this to see if it helps:
Remove top thread.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning.
Start the top tension set at the midway point and then adjust.
Check that the bobbin is threaded and installed correctly.
