    Dear Aljacobs, 

    Thanks for your questions.  To help you resolve this, I need a bit more information.  Are the loops occurring on the top or bottom of the quilt?  

    Best Regards

    Thanks for your response. The loops are only on the top of the quilt.

    Dear Aljacobs, 

    Thanks for your quick response!  Loops on the top of the quilt mean that your top thread tension is too tight.  To make an adjustment, loosen your top tension slightly by turning the tension knob to the left, maybe a quarter of a turn, then check your tension on both the top and the bottom.  You may need to do a few more slight adjustments.  Here a link to PDFs that are all about getting the perfect tension: https://support.handiquilter.me/hc/en-us/articles/360033420612-Six-Steps-to-Perfect-Tension

    Could it be anything else?

    Dear Aljacobs, 

    Here is something else you can try: loop your top thread twice around the tensioner.  If you are using a slick thread - like Glide or Magnifico-it may be popping out of the disks occaisionally, then popping back in when you change direction in your quilting.  If you find that neither one of these tips fix the problem, I would recommend contacting your local HQ retailer about servicing your machine. 

    Best Regards,
