Sorry, but it is in your threading. If, it is underneath birdnesting, it is the top threading. If, on top, it is the bobbin threading. Do this test, with presser foot up, pull thread, it should pull smoothly, now lower presser foot, the thread should barely move. This should seat your thread in the tension discs. Also, a needle wouldn't hurt when you rethread.

Fixing the problem of birdnesting


Birdnesting is a common but very frustrating problem that can be resolved easily once you know where the problem originates. Remember, if the birdnesting occurs on the underside of the fabric, the problem originates with the upper thread. If it shows on the top of the fabric, the problem is the bobbin.

Very often, the machine is not threaded correctly. Remove all the thread from the machine. Check there are no loose threads or lint stuck anywhere in the machine. Oil as instructed in the manual.

Install a brand new needle! The needle should be suitable for the thread and fabric you are using. All About Needles

ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread the upper thread. Verify the path is correct.

Check that the bobbin is installed and threaded properly.

Pull the bobbin thread to the top of the fabric.
How and Why to Bring up the Bobbin Thread

Set the upper tension to the midway point.

While holding both thread tails lightly in your left hand, begin sewing slowly.

Have a Singer 11910000A and the bobber thread bunches up and makes a mess in the feet when sewing


Is it really the bobbin thread that is globbing? Check closely. Usually it is the upper thread accumulating under the fabric.

If it is in fact the bobbin thread, then the bobbin case is not threaded correctly, the bobbin case tension needs adjustment, or it is broken and needs replacement. There are web sites and YouTube videos that show how to adjust the bobbin case tension.

QUICK FIXES: Remove all the thread from the machine. Clean the area around the feed dogs and bobbin area. Oil as instructed in the owner's manual using ONLY fresh, good quality sewing machine oil (only 1-2 drops each spot). Install a brand new needle insuring it is installed correctly. Avoid using fuzzy, old, or bargain bin thread. Rethread: Be sure you raise the presser foot BEFORE threading the upper thread so it will seat properly in the tension disk--and check to make sure you are threading the machine correctly. Check that the upper tension is set properly (the factory standard is usually the halfway point between the high & low number on the selection). Test on a scrap of the fabric you wish to sew. Adjust the upper tension--either tighten to pull the upper thread toward the top of the fabric, or loosen to pull more upper thread down.

Here are some web sites that may help.

The thread gets caught up in bobbin area


This mess is commonly referred to as a bird's nest or 'birdnesting' and it's usually caused by incorrect top tension and that's often caused by the top thread not in the correct path. (For me, I occasionally forget to thread through the take-up lever.) A damaged needle can also cause birdnesting.

Singer 5430C bobbins thread always loopy


"Birdnesting" occurs when there is no tension on the needle thread to pull the bobbin thread. This is easily corrected by rethreading the machine, following the threading path carefully and making sure the thread is fully engaged in the tension mechanism.

I have a singer-inspiration machine and it appears that the thread keeps getting caught up in the bobbin area so my thread birdnests. I am new to sewing and this is a new machine.
