thread or tension problem

Recommended Posts

Can anyone give me some insight as to why my tension seems perfectly fine on the front and for the most part looks fine on the back, however, once in a while the thread seems to loop on the back and go really loose for 1 or 2 stitches. Then it goes back to normal. I have adjusted and readjusted my tension, the thread is the same that I always use. The back is a bit stiff but that's all i can think of. HELP!

Have you tried replacing your needle? I'm in the process of quilting a huge applique/embroidered batik quilt (top and backing) and I have had almost perfect tension until my needle started to get dull (using So Fine on top and Bottom line in bobbin). As soon as I put in a new needle, back to beautiful tension again.

Thanks for your suggestions. I was unsure where to start so i looked up a previous thread as well that suggested re-threading the machine as well as changing the needle. So i did both and it seemed to stop the looping. So nice to have advice from the experts! Thank you.
