MAKING EMBROIDERY ADJUSTMENTS

MAKING EMBROIDERY ADJUSTMENTS

Adjusting Thread Tension

When embroidering, the thread tension should be
set so that the upper thread can slightly be seen on
the wrong side of the fabric.

I 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.
(Right side)
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 dur-
ing sewing. This is not the sign of a malfunc-
tion. Increase the thread tension slightly,
and begin sewing 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.

I 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.
