How to Adjust the Tension on a Sewing Machine

BEST explanation I've read yet on adjusting the tension on your sewing machine! Simple and easy to remember. Tighten the tension and "pull the knots up" if the knots appear on the bottom side of the sewn seam. Loosen the tension and "drop the knots down" if the knots are on the top surface. Higher number = tighter, lower number = looser.

Golf tees with flower glued on top will keep the matching bobbin with the right spool of thread. Also don't forget the little hair scrunchy that keeps your bobbin from unwinding.
