please check your Tension On the Back of your Work you should see two thirds of Top thread and one third of Bobbin thread I hope this helps hugs Ursula
Ha! The shop told me that not seeing the bobbin thread was what it was suppose to do! Wrong.
The shop told you wrong. Did they tighten your bobbin tension? I stick with the one third two thirds but some say you should be more than one third bobbin showing.
No wonder it is pulling your embroidery.
Besides the go with the grain in one of the posts....sometimes it helps to loosen the tension..does for me...
I asked the shop....they told me not to fiddle with the tension...I'm beginning to think they are nuts...
In just checking up posts that I worked on yesterday. Please is it possible to answer the questions that Cuties have asked for to help you or have you been able to solve the problem? If you have solved it what did you do to solve it? Thanks and please keep us updated
Not sure if this will work for you, but worth a try if you are not already doing it. I have an husqvarna embroidery instructor that teaches : the grain of the fabric being embroidered should always go in the hoop with the grain going the length of the hoop (top to bottom). It is supposed to reduce puckering and other problems.
I agre Debbie - I always have grain of fabric top to bottom in my hoops. Love Chris
Great information. I never thought of this. Thanks.
have you tried iron on stabilizer usually works well..wendy
I thought of that, but there are already 4 layers that I'm stitching through and hesitated to add another. I'll have to give it a try.
Hmmm...can you help us out with a photo so we can see the problem?
