Can anyone help give me some clues as to what I need to do about my thread tension?
This, I'm sure is a standard problem for new LA users. I have just about given up.
Right now my bobbin thread is breaking at the case. I have done everything the troulbe shooting info says:
new needle, centered and all the way in
good thread, threaded properly (Superior- King Tut which I always use)
same bobbin thread as top
thread tightly wound on to bobbin, not spongy
I even added a paper washer in the bobbin case to help eliminate backlash
Bobbin tension is so that the bobbin raises up in my hand when pulled gently and the drop test only drops the thread between 1/2 and 1" when tugged.
I feel I have everything right but still the thread breaks.
I have tried lossening the bobbin tension a tiny bit and then the stitching goes funny. (top thread will lay on backing instead for being burried in the quilt.)
I am at my wits end. Any new info that anybody could impart would be greatly appreciated.
