    Default Sewing Machine

    Okay I figured out how to wind a bobbin - Now I am having problems on getting the machine to stitch without big loopy stiches on the bottom of my fabric..... It seems that the bobbin thread is not going into the stitch.... HELP!

    lol!

    I knew it was a tension issue, but have been wading through a political school mess for my son, so didn't have much more to reply with. Glad its all sorted out now though

    i had a feeling leigh would have this solved in no time!

    whenever i've had problems like that the most common thing has been the tension. if not that, then i usually made a mistake with threading the machine....e.g. bobbin spinning the wrong direction.
