I am trying to get my Husqvarna 2000 running just right and cannot get the  
thread below two layers of sunbrella to look right.  The thread below the f
abric loops and no matter how tight i have the upper tension I cannot get t
he lower thread to look just right.

Thanks

Are you using the correct size needle, at least a 16, but you might need a  
jeans needle.

I am using a jeans needle, size reads 90.

Does that sound right?

Assuming you are using the appropriate thread for sunbrella it is to thick  
for home machines.

What thread and thread weight are you using ?

Which thread on the bottom is looping ?  The bobbin thread or is the stitch  
from above  not pulling up tight ?  I've seen both have problems depending  
on the circumstances .

I just finished a Gazebo cover for the in-laws  last spring using sunbrella  
weighted fabric with a nylon backing to boot and on a home weight machine.  
Most seams were mock felled  or three layers and a few short corner seams  
were up to 5 layers. It took a while to get the right combination of thread  
/ needle / tension to get  a decent stitch.
