Thread Tension ?
After a bit of a hiatus, I'm starting to get back in action with my Consew 225. Last night I was practicing some straight stitching with 207 and experienced some fraying problems above the needle. The machine continued to sew and the thread - or maybe "rope" in this case, LOL! - never broke. First thing I suspected was a tension problem. But instead of adjusting the knob, I rethreaded the machine eliminating one of the loops in the 3 hole thread guide. After this, the problem was solved. My question is this : is it really necessary to use all three holes with any thread that I use ? Cant I just use 2 or possibly one ?
