    Default New project , tension problems!!!

    This is my new adventure but my machine is giving me problems. I was stippling along fine and the tension on the machine changed. the thread on the bottom was straight then as I tried to help the situation now I get a birdnest on the bottom. What am I doing wrong?

    :roll:

    Learning the hard way is never fun but tension problems are always interesting, yuck! I have found though that my threading is often the problem when my thread starts having issues. I don't know how but the thread will manage to come unhooked from an arm or knob or something it's supposed to be wrapped around and start causing problems maybe I should get this checked out
    To stitch or not to stitch... There is no question.
