Correct tension is important because too
much or too little will weaken your seams
or cause your fabric to pucker. Make a
test sample with fabric and thread you
plan to use and examine it. A perfect stitch
will have needle and bobbin threads
locked between two layers of fabric with
no loops on top or bottom and no puckers.
The tension dial regulates the degree of
tension on your needle thread. Set it
according to the type of thread and fabric
you use. The numbers on the dial eliminate
guesswork in duplicating settings.
If the stitches in your test sample look
loose, increase needle-thread tension. If
the fabric puckers, decrease tension.
