Place thread spool on the spool pin at back right top of machine. From there, thread through 1) rear thread guide (little hook), 2) front thread guide (front hook), 3) down and up through the thread tension dial from right to left so that thread picks up the thread spring check (the little spring on the left of the tension dial). 4) Through the thread take-up-lever, from right to left (the little lever that goes up and down). 5) Through the thread guard and guides (one on the front, one on the needle arm). 6) Through the needle, front to back. Good luck johntrev800 (at)

    Need to know how to set the tension to sew hems on

    Re-thread the machine and make sure that the needle is in properly. The tension would not cause the thread to break.

    If it is not working, what is the machine doing? Try re-threading the machine again, check the needle to make sure that it is in correctly. There are no set numbers for tension- it is a feel, push, pull. If you could e-mail me back with a better description of what the machine is doing or not doing,

    Brother VX-1120- The needle is not picking up bobbin thread.

    I had the same problem with my brother vx-1120 sewing machine. I set the needle to lowest position by using the hand crank. Then I loosened the knerled set screw that holds needle in place. Then I moved needle shaft till the eye of needle is just lower than the hook on the shuttle loop maker. It made my mechine work. There are instuctions for ajusting timing on machine but I think these mechines are built to not fix and throw out. Just because there where no ajustment marks at all on machine, any machanical machine will needed to be ajusted sometime.
