When you decide what your sewing project for the day is going to be, thread your machine, cut a small piece of fabric to work with, test your thread and tension to be sure you have the correct thread weight for your sewing project before you go ahead.  If your fabric is yielding a gathered piece of fabric on a straight stitch, first adjust your tension, if the issue remains your thread could be the problem.  A quick trip to the fabric store with your sample is a good idea to find the right type of thread for your project.
