Thank U... The problem I'm having is it bunches up on the bottom stitch.. I'll just keep trying to set the tension
Professor Pincushion
Make sure that you're holding your tail threads for at least the first couple of stitches. If not, sometimes the bobbin tends to start getting sucked back into the machine and it causes that birdnesting on the bottom. If you're still having issues, you may want to take your machine in for maintenance.
