I tried to get a picture but you couldn't see the problem. So . . .
When I sew(or try) a loop forms between where the top thread exits the machine head and where the little 'keeper' is at the top of the needle. It's maybe 2 inches of thread. Adjusting the top tension doesn't seem to make any difference. Wreaks havoc after only a few inches, of course.
I don't think it's me because I can sew on a friend's machine with no problems.
This machine is a newish Singer (something very low end). As such, I'm hesitant to take it to the shop because the base charge may be almost as much as a replacement machine.
Can anybody diagnose my problem from this description?
I'm ready to throw this machine out the window and just go buy the same model my friend has. It's only $79 new. And I'm always fighting something with this machine.
