Hello All!

I'm having trouble with the tensions on my Baby Lock Imagine. :bluesad: My threads loop over the edge when I serge and my fabric won't feed correctly. Will someone please let me know the basic tension settings for a variety of fabrics such as denim, stretch jersey, cotton flannel, etc. Your help will be much appreciated! Thanks!

If it is looping over the edge it may not be your tension but your stitch width.Try adjusting that down a little before you touch your tensions.
