First I cleaned out the bobbin area thingy!
Including unscrewing the plate!
Next I cleaned the up downy bit! (Technical term) and changed the needle!
This still didn't work! So fiddled with the tension for a bit, no luck still loose stitches! And then I decided to try the zig zag to see how that worked! Now by some fluke although I changed the stitch length and width, I forgot to change the actual stitch! (Bear with me I'm getting to the point)
Anyway it produced a lovely line (not zig zag) of stitching! No puckers! No loose stitches! Now after a little bit of dective work it became apparent that the machine will only stitch nicely if the needle is off centre!
No seriously ! Central = messy stitching, 2mm off center = perfect!
And I have no idea why! I might try undoing the entire foot bit incase it's been put on wrong! But other than that I have no ideas? Anybody out there know what it could be?
In other news I have downed my usual craft tools today in favour of this!
Yes sometimes, on certain projects only a bread knife will do!
