I'm just learning to sew and I've been playing around the last couple of days. Last night after hours of sewing I decided I would change projects so I changed thread colors (as well as threaded a new bobbin) I have done this before with no issues but this time the stiching on the back is loose (see pictures). I tried re-threading the bobbin a few times and it's helped a little but I'm still having the same problem Huh Angry. Any ideas on what is causing this and how to fix it? Thanks!

This is the top side:


This is underneath:

2 things......

Try rethreading it completely, take out the top thread and the bobbin thread and redo it, make sure your bobbin thread is in it's leaders (don't know whatelse to call it) before pulling it up thru the feed dogs.

If that doesn't fix it,

try your tension.

Mine was doing something similar and the guy at the shop explained to me- if the problem is on the underside of the fabric then most likely a problem with the threading for the top of the machine.  If the problem is on top of the fabric, them the problem is most likely in the bottom with the bobbin.

So I was watching threadbanger and they had a great tip for us newbies. If your problem is on the bottom of your material you need to fix the thread on top (maybe the tension, I've had this problem too) if your problem is on the top of your material you need to fix your bobbin. Hope this helps.

try threading with two different colored threads to make SURE that it's your bobbin thread that's causing the problem. My guess is that it's the TOP thread - and I "second" that you should try rethreading the whole machine.  Best of luck!

Now this time I know my bobbin is threaded correctly, tuts here were a great help, but what keeps happening is that I start sewing, everything goes fine and I sew two perfect straight seams.

Then it jams and I've got a wad of wasted thread coming out of the bottom all knotted up that takes me several minutes and a pair of tweezers to get it all out. I start sewing again, and barely two stitches later I've got it jammed up again with so much thread, I'm honestly baffled how that much thread can get clogged up so fast.

It's happened several times now and it's getting very frustrating to do things so perfectly and then have them mess up a few seconds later.

I'm assuming that you carefully went through all of the steps on this page: Thread Nests, Wads, Bunches, Knots, Loops & Tangles Under the Fabric in the Bobbin Area- How to fix it


When this happens mid stream- it's often because the upper thread is jumping out of the take up lever.
