MAKING EMBROIDERY ADJUSTMENTS
■ Correct Thread Tension
The pattern can be seen from the wrong side of the fabric.
If the thread tension is not set correctly, the pattern will
not finish well. The fabric may pucker or the thread may
break.
Follow the operations described below to adjust thread
tension according to the situation.
Note
• If the thread tension setting is made extremely
weak, the machine may stop during embroidering.
This is not the sign of a malfunction. Increase the
thread tension slightly, and start embroidering
again.
Memo
• If you turn the main power to OFF or select a
different pattern, the thread tension will reset to the
automatic setting.
• When you retrieve a saved pattern, the thread
tension setting will be the same as when the
pattern was saved.
■ Upper Thread Is Too Tight
The tension of the upper thread is too tight, resulting in the
bobbin thread being visible from the right side of the
fabric.
Note
• If the bobbin thread was incorrectly threaded, the
upper thread may be too tight. In this case, refer to
"Setting the Bobbin" on page 26 and rethread the
bobbin thread.

upper thread.

tuning, refer to "Adjusting Thread Tension" on page 73.
