I just bought a Singer Quantum XL-6000 programmable embroidery machine. It works well when I use it with solid non-stretchy fabric. But, when I try to embroider on a 50% cotton 50% polyester T-shirt, the machine birdnests regularly. According to the last question on the Singer FAQ at http://www.singerco.com/support/faqs.html all I need to do is make sure the machine is threaded correctly. But, that can't be right because it doesn't birdnest on non-stretchy fabric. I tried increasing tension from 10 to 30 (whatever those units mean), but it didn't fix it. Is there a trick to embroidering on stretchy fabric? Should I use the smallest possible needle size? Should I try increasing the thread tension even more?

Hey, it suddenly occurred to me why machine embroidery on knitted fabrics is backed by a piece of stable cloth. Get some iron-on patching material and try it. No, I can't post this as an "answer". It is just a freebie comment. :)
