    not really sure. but this too has happened to me and yes... frustration....
    there could be a thread gob. jammed up in your bobbin . or fuzz . your know though air cans ,. give bobbin area a blast of air.
    it also could be your tension. gosh... i hate it when there is a mechanical malfunctions.

    hope it helps.
    all the best

        Have you checked your bobbin tension. Also if you dont have it in the holdrr going the right way it can do this. I hope these help.

          Tension, both top and bottom are the first things I'd check and yes the feed direction of your bobbin thread. The other thing I have had recently that resulted in a similar situation was to not have the needle all the way up into the shank. Oddly enough it still 'sewed' but gave this massive looping on the bottom, I would have thought it would touch on the bobbin and break but it didn't.

          PS As Gina said check for fluff as well, get into the habit of cleaning out your bobbin area at least every time you change a bobbin and more often if using fabrics that fuzz.

              Are you using a walking foot or a freemotion foot? If you are using a walking foot, it will do bad things it you use anything but a straight stitch. (Trust me!) The only other thing would be tension, or a dirty bobbin case.

                  Hoped you solved your problem! I know how frustrating that is when you just want to relax and sew.
                  The first thing I always do is start with the simplest thing - re-thread the sewing machine and the bobbin carefully, if that does not work I start on changing other things and get out my manual.
                  Argg....good luck!

                    how is it going? one time i got my bobbin spool in wrong. and then my tension was not correct. and then i had big fuzz gob then thread gob. then i was mad at myself.. and so check bobbin... rethread bobbin. take off plate. give blast of air. a dry q tip!!!. wipe down componants. use scraps to check tension again...

                        Nicole, another thing is to make sure your presser (or pressure) foot is all the way up when threading your machine. If it's not the tension disks are not open all of the way and your thread will not go in
                        them correctly and will cause stitching like that to happen.
                        I sure hope things get better for you! I am anxious to see that table runner when you are done!

                            I have that one too!! i had this happen to me. i had my bobbin going the wrong way..... silly me.
                            love my machine. when i took my machine quilt class. my instructor had adjusted tension to 4. had me un do thread top and bobbin... take off thread plate. and blam... huge fuzz and thread gob... teacher had me change needle too. since then all has been well.

                            love this machine. gift from my in laws.
