Thanks for the video as I just had issues with tension yesterday and my top thread was too loose as it showed on the back. Of course I'm using 2 threads in the needle right now and all was good on the 1st design but changed somehow on the 2nd design. In the past I never had to check the bobbin tension but seems now I do. Again, thanks for the video as that helps me figure out which tension I need to adjust. I always forget which is which.

Many thanks for sharing this link. Tension is something that I have played with over the years and sometimes I get it right and sometimes I make things worse. This video is clear and very helpful. I have that book, maybe it would help it I really read it. What a wonderful idea,sometimes I jest need a slap upside my head. Seriously, thank you.

Thanks for posting it. I've been having a lot of tension issues and think I'll go in to the dealer and experiment there as nothing seems to change even though I've tried adjusting it.
