Madeira Tension Test Design
This design has been digitized specifically for tension testing of Madeira 40 weight thread!

Using thread tension gauges makes it easy to adjust both bobbin and upper tensions. It’s quick, easy and will help you eliminate unsightly bobbin thread showing on top, looping top stitches and thread breaks. Your embroidery will look its best with consistent, balanced thread tensions. Once you have adjusted your thread tensions, it’s always a good idea to run tests. You are welcome to download and run Madeira’s free tension test design below. It consists of a 1 inch square with fill stitches and three columns of varying width satin stitches.

Instructions:

  1. First run the fill stitch test pattern.
  2. If you experience any top stitch looping, slowly tighten the main upper tension knob until this looping goes away (looping can also occur if your bobbin tension is too tight).
  3. Proper tensions for satin stitches should reveal 1/3 bobbin and 2/3 top thread color on the underside of the embroidery.

Note: Too much bobbin showing on the underside and/or showing on the topside usually means either the bobbin tension is too loose or the top thread tension is too tight.
