How to Sew.
There are two ways to thread a needle: single threaded and double threaded. I learned double threaded, and that’s how I do everything now, but many people sew with a single thread, so I’ll teach both.
How do I know how much thread I need?
To calculate the actual thread used, measure the length of the seam (for example, 4 inches), carefully remove the thread by removing the stitches, and divide the length of the thread by four to get the thread used in one inch.
How do you know what tension to use when sewing?
Perfect sewing machine tension occurs when the top and bottom threads are perfectly balanced, which means there should be no small loops on the top or bottom of your fabric and even stitching on both sides.

What happens when bobbin thread runs out?
When the bobbin thread runs out while embroidering, the machine will stop and the message “The bobbin thread is almost empty.” will appear. If there is very little sewing left, you can embroider approximately 10 final stitches by pressing the “Start/Stop” button without rethreading the machine.
Why is my thread bunching underneath?
Your Thread Tension Is Too Tight If you don’t use the same weight thread in your bobbin and upper thread, your tension will be uneven, resulting in bunched-up thread under your fabric. If your tension is too tight, it will pull your thread and break it.
What causes thread to bunch up when sewing?
When sewing, the top and bottom stitches should interlock smoothly and look the same; however, if the stitches are puckered, the seam is unstable, the thread bunches up, or the stitches are just plain ugly, there is most likely an issue with incorrect tension on one or both sides.
What width should my sewing machine be on?
Because a straight stitch has no width, setting the dial to “0” makes sense; however, because each machine is different, you should set the Stitch Width dial to the position where the needle is centered over the stitch plate to get the most accurate seam allowance.
