Singer 111w155 problem

I have a Singer 111w155 that I've been doing some small projects with (tractor seat cover, leather cell phone case, and etc), but I keep having a problem with it. It sews fine but I keep getting extra loops of thread around the bobbin case. I tried thread tensioning and I'm 100% sure that I'm treading the machine correctly and the needle is in correct. I'm ready to take it in to a shop and have it looked at. I'm located in central Wisconsin and looking for a good mechanic to take a look at it. Dan, have you ever had any dealings with Ariel in Wausau? I've been buying needles and tread there and the owner seems to know what he is talking about. He says he has been in the business for over 30 some years.
