tension issues Help

Recommended Posts

Help I am having tension issues the top thread is pulling towards the back and creating a small loop at the back.

I am using Fantastico in the top and invisafil in the bobbin the batting is hobbs 80/20 and the backing is a sheet. I have loosened the sandwich and put sewers aid on the top and bobbin thread I have tweaked the bobbin and the top thread, I am also going very slow. Not sure what else to try.

I am not sure if this picture will work,I hope so

Clean your hook assembly thoroughly with WD40 and re-oil. Also, check under the tension finger on your bobbin case. I'm assuming you've tried a different bobbin.

Thank-you Barb the WD-40 bath seams to have done the trick. Sometimes you cant see the forest for teh tree as they say.

A person gets frustrated and can't think straight
