Sewing machine tension
On a sewing machine, tension is the balance of stitches between the top thread and the bobbin. And if all is going well, that tension should be balanced right in the middle of your piece of fabric. You shouldn’t see your bobbin thread on the top, nor should you see your top thread underneath.

But sometimes things go horribly wrong: top threads underneath, bird’s nests of thread, and loose stitches. Fear not! Sewing machine expert Kelley is here for you.
In this video, Kelley Richardson is at ABQ Sewing Studio to show you how to solve your tension problems so your stitches are perfect and you can enjoy making your project.
