Sewing Machine Tension….

I have always had trouble trying to figure out exactly how to adjust my tension. Wich way do you turn the knob to increase or decrease the tension . How does it affect it?.

Wich way to turn when your threads are popping up from behind? tension-3

Wich way do I turn the knob if the bottom threads are real loose?  tension2

Well scrolling thru Facebook this morning it al came clear to me when a lady posted this drawing on Life’s a quilt Facebook page.  I dont know where this drawing came from but I sure thank the person who made it being a visual learning it makes more scence to me now..


  Hope it clarifies things as much as it did for me.
