Bunching at Start Up? Why?

The thread bunchhes up upon starting to sew on the bottom of the work. I've placed the thread behind and sideways and still - no good.

Once you've gone a bit, the problem is solved and the machine sews fine.

This photo is a piece of vinyl that I used as a bottom to show this problem.

What am I doing wrong?

Pull more thread out and keep it under tension. Keep the foot tight on the work to start.. take some pictures of the sewing machine. What sewing machine? Nobody wants to piece together information from your other threads to figure this out. Very little detail in this thread. Maybe increase the tension on the thread. Maybe try different thread.

There are two ways to start sewing. The first is to hold onto the thread as you start while pushing the foot pedal, and the second way is to turn the hand wheel and drive the needle through the work, and then start sewing. TTfive O is right, you need to have about 6" of both top thread and bobbin thread hanging out as you start.

I held it and turned the wheel by hand - problem solved.

Thanks!
