Question about Sewing Machines
CONSEW CN2053R THE TOP STITCH LOOKS FINE BUT WHEN YOU FLIP IT OVER THE FABRIC AND LOOK AT THE BOTTOM STITCH IT IS LOOSE LIKE LITTLE LOOPS INSTEAD OF TIGHT STITCHS. I HAVE TRYED TO TIGHTEN TE BOBIN SREWS BUT NO CHANGE.
My top thread is pulling thru to the underside..looks like little birds feet tracks on the back of the quilt...help

If the top stitch is loose, then you need to tighten the bobbin tension: if the bottom stitch is loose, tighten the top tension. Hope this helps. It could also be the size needle and thread you are using for a particular fabric. Different fabrics require different notions.

Actually, the majority of recommendations are incorrect. If the bobbin thread is loose, it's because the top thread is not high enough to pull the bobbin thread up.
Tension is a tug of war. Correct tension is when both threads exert equal amounts of pull against each other, the result causes the two threads to meet in the middle of the fabric. In your case, the top thread is exerting zero pull on the bobbin thread so the bobbin thread simply lays on the surface of the fabric. Raise the top tension and see what happens.

I have a Barnett 50 sewing machine and my bottom stitches are very loose . Where do I go to tighten then tension for the under part of the stitches.
