Bad stitching.

I wonder if anyone can suggest a cure for very bad stitching on my
Husqvarna Rose machine?
I know it's old, but it was serviced a year ago, hasn't been worked very
much since, and to have it in for another service is so expensive.

Some of the time it goes well, but then it starts to make very loose
loops underneath.  I tighten up the hoop, but it still does that.

I've tried changing the needle, tightening the tension, padding the
sides of the hoop, in case age has warped it, but nothing does any good.
  If anyone can suggest a cure I'd be very grateful.

As a pensioner, I have no chance of replacing the machine, and have
recently had to replace the software because the dongle and discs were
stolen during a house move.  I'd hate to think that expense must be
given up with the machine.

Loose threads under the work often are caused by bobbin
issues.  Check to be sure the bobbin is inserted correctly,
and that the thread is under whatever tensioning device
there is.  I am not familiar with the Rose, HTH

Thank you, but that was one of the first things I checked, and have done
so again several times.

The only other thing I can think of is using thicker stabiliser, but
since I haven't changed that much it seems a bit unlikely.

When my wife gets home she might have some ideas. I seem to recall that
we had a similar problem with the Rose a few years ago. Or it may have
been on a different machine ...

Sorry, no help here. It was a different machine, and the problem was
that it needed a professional servicing/cleaning - which you just had.

Thanks, anyway, Herb.  I did check for dust and lint, but there was
nothing.  I'll try other designs, and see if it's just the construction
vehicles for my grandsons' tracksuits that are at fault.  They are
rather dense.

Luckily the problems have been on try-outs, not actual garment pieces.

Hi Joyce,  

You don't mention what kind of fabric you are stiching on or what type
of stabilizer you are using.  So my first suggestion is to try using a
thicker stabilizer.  (I also have a Rose as well as a Viking 1+ and
Designer 1.)

Check thread route from thread to needle.
