Why does my sewing machine shake so much?
Depending on your brand of sewing machine you may experience the “Sewing Machine Shake” more than others. Sewing machines that bounce or shake can contribute to skipped stitches and break needles. And you thought it was because you had bad thread or a dull needle…it COULD be your sewing surface!
Why is my sewing machine not running smoothly?
Thread inconsistently knots, loosens, or tangles
One minute, everything’s sewing along just fine, and the next, your machine has tangled, skipped stitches, or knotted up the threads. If the issue is inconsistent, the problem is not likely to be your threading or tension settings. Instead, the issue is probably fluff!
