Question about Brother SE-270D Computerized Sewing Machine
I have the same problem but I believe the answer is to purchase a new shuttle which is the part the bobbin sits in and is most likely scratched or damaged. The quote I got was 40-50 dollars

SOURCE: unable to adjust tension,
Sounds like the bobbin thread is not inside the tension on the bobbin case. This normally happens when the bobbin is upside down. Insert the bobbin and pull on the thread.The bobbin should turn counter clockwise.

SOURCE: Shirring fabric?
When putting your shirring elastic on the bobbin, don't thread the elastic through the bobbin holder,adjust the stitch length longer,and loosen the tension, other wise if you want to put it through the bobbin holder you have to loosen the tension screw on the bobbin holder, and then you have to adjust it back for ordinary sewing,

Check your needle, mine just did the same thing. I had put the needle in wrong. The flat goes to the rear and that fixed my skipping problem.
