So I guess I have to drop the machine off to the dealer for service again. I am a little bummed, since it's a bit out of my way and I have not been able to get in the mood to finish window treatments I started in the spring since it's summer. I think the sharp thing that juts out over the bobbin area is to blame. Perhaps it's bent or something. It may have gotten messed up last time I tried to do some embroidering, and the machine seemed to be eating the material, even with stabilizer. It seems that the bobbin thread works fine, and that it is the top thread that is getting cut and shredded underneath. Does this sound familiar?

Not sure. Are you sewing or embroidering?

Sometimes if the bobbin case is not re-inserted and seated properly it can cause problems, more typically with thread, though when I've had it happen the thread became such a mess (i.e. top thread wrapping around in bobbin area, primarily in embroidery mode) the entanglement did cause the fabric to be "eaten". It was kind of a joke when I had the tech look at it and he showed me I hadn't gotten it all the way back in correctly. Because I do it all the time. Because I work there! It wasn't a matter of not knowing how to put it in - but I have had customers have same issue - but I was switching around with different contacts and glasses trying to hone in on a vision issue and I couldn't SEE what I was doing properly! Hopefully that's all it is!

This may not help at all as maybe something is out of alignment or bent or something. However, every time I have a thread nest there is something wrong with the needle thread. I had my machine eat fabric this am. The first thing I did was take the bobbin out and clean everything (it is a bit sensitive to dust etc in the bobbin case). Then I changed the needle and rethreaded everything. No more eating of fabric. I don't know how often you change your needle or match needle to fabric but most times thread nests and the eating of fabric is due to needles and top thread and nothing to do with the bobbin. I also lightened the foot pressure and lengthen the stitch a little. I hope the fix for you is something simple!

Can you post a pic with the plate taken off the machine? The sharp thing that juts out over the bobbincase could be the thread cutter not properly retracting back after it was used last. Can't be sure without a picture.

If it does not happen in regular garment sewing, but only while embroidering and only with that one design, it can easy be just even your embroidery design (s). Too many tight, small stitches, all piled up on top of each other, too close together, or in too many layers, creates a mess, and will create thread tangles, loopies, shred thread, and start breaking needles, and even try to pull your fabric down the stitch plate hole.

Just like trying to sew in one place too long, without feed dogs moving, non hoop embroidery would do the same thing.

I know that, because I have embroidery software, and in any of them I can very quickly do that even on purpose, that would cause that to happen with any machine, just anyplace. Would I do that on purpose, of course not, but accidents can happen in an embroidery design, and every one whom makes some, just does it slightly different.
