I don't know if I phrased that correctly but I have two problems:
First of all when I sew the top layer looks fine and when I turn it over and look at the other side it's CHOCK FULL of bumps and loose threads.

Secondly, lately when I sew something's been happening where it'll all just get tangled up into the holes underneath where the needle goes through and when I pull it away in seconds it looks like whatever I'm sewing has grown hair. MASSIVE amounts of thread tangled and bunched into the material, as though it's growing a mohawk.


I have no idea what's going on but I feel about ready to chuck the damn thing out the window. It worked fine for my grandmother when she and I recently made a dress so it has to be something I'm doing wrong.

I have a Baby Lock Denim Pro in case that helps. Maybe I'm threading the machine incorrectly?

Read this:

Thread Nests, Wads, Bunches, Knots, Loops & Tangles Under the Fabric in the Bobbin Area- How to fix it

Don't just read a just a portion of this and go try and address the issue.  Read the complete page (it's not that long) and then go back to your machine and follow the suggestions in order. 95% of the time, that solves the problem.

Why are you sorry?? 

I provided that link to the troubleshooting page to help, not "blow you off".
