Thread twisting. How to stop???

patsyannJune 30, 2007

I have a cone thread on an overhead rod which is supposed to feed the thread onto the sewing machine without it twisting. Unfortunately it twists so badly it regularly comes out of the upper tension assembly. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

I'm not sure what kind of overhead apparatus you have,but when i use the cone thread i have one of those stands made for that purpose,and it stands behind the machine.If you don't have one of those you can try something like a mason jar or mayonnaise jar(not plastic),and set your cone down inside of that.HTH

The thread for sergers(on cones) is twisted the opposite way of regular sewing thread so that sounds like the problem. The tension disc is putting pressure on the thread and it is splitting. Hope this helps. Sewbusy_rn
