What am I doing wrong

Postby Woozle35 » Wed Nov 16, 2011 11:31 pm

I have so much sewing to do and look at the time :x My tension keeps messing up. I get it right and it stitches fine and then all of a sudden just changes. I am stitching the same piece of fabric so its not that changing.

Blow where ever you can to get rid of dust/lint and change your needle! (This has helped when mine does this) :-)

Followed your chart, thanks Emma, and my thread from the lower bobbin was showing at the top, so I turned the dial down. I kept doing it a little bit at a time and then trying it again, and then I realised I had gone to far and unscrewed the knob. Just got it back on and its still doing it :x :x :x
