Hi Mary! These old Singers are such wonderful machines! I'm always glad to hear from someone who loves them and uses them--they will last practically forever with very little ever going wrong.
Sounds like your upper tension is a little loose. I like to use different color threads on top and in the bobbin, to make the stitches easier to see. Also, are you using size 12 needles and 50 wt thread when you're adjusting the tension? Sometimes having a larger (or smaller) needle and/or thread can throw the tension off just a bit. Also, make sure the pressure foot is up when you're threading the machine but down when you adjust the tension and that you only adjust the tension in tiny increments.
You may need to adjust the bobbin tension--but that very seldom needs to be adjusted.
It's also possible that there's a bit of thread or lint caught in the tension disks or in the bobbin area.
