On the Towa what setting do you use for your bobbins?

Recommended Posts

 I have a Lenni and I have been using between 190-200 on the Towa gauge and my bottom thread is really small ugly stitches, what am I doing wrong?  I have not been happy with my any of my stitches lately, does anyone have any advice about how to consistently get really pretty stitches top and bottom?  I am beyond frustrated.

Make sure your top thread tension is tight enough.  Tighten the top thread until you get "railroad track" on the top, then begin loosening the top tension until you get a balanced stitch.  Almost any time I have poor stitch quality it's because my top tension is off.

I run my bobbin tension a bit tighter than you.  My TOWA readings are between 210 and 225.  I do like a tight stitch.  Good luck.  Jim
