I have a bernina 550. What should I set the tension when sewing with invisible thread?


When I took a quilting class, the instructor had us put the invisible thread spool in a coffee cup behind the machine. Then we taped a paperclip or safety pin at the top-back of the machine (with about half of it above the sewing machine) between the spool pin and the first thread guide. Then we ran the invisible thread through the hole in the paperclip/safety pin and through the remaining thread guides and tension disks. (Technically, we avoided the spool pin.) Do NOT put invisible thread on the bobbin. Then adjust the top tension like you would for regular quilting or sewing.

The spool pin on my Brother VX1010 doesn't come up so I can't put a spool of thread on it.


Difficult to say. Some machines have a spool pin that can be pushed down for storage or transport. Your machine may have this ability. Or, perhaps someone has pushed the pin down accidentally. If you can use a needlenose plier to grab the tip and pull up, the spool pin may be fixed. If there is any part of the spool pin still projecting above the machine, you can cut a length of plastic drinking straw and fit it over the spool pin to hold your thread spool. Some sewists use a standalone thread holder (available multiple sites online, etc) that sets on the table behind the sewing machine or some people will throw the thread into a jar and set it behind the machine.

For the dressmaker II, the first bobbin, I got through step 1-5 but where the does step 6 go BECUZ that's really trippin me, PLS tell me. And the instruction is not clear at all, I don't understand it


Hi Vicky, I hope this helps you:
1. Remove the slide cover plate by sliding it toward you, and lift
up the bobbin and the bobbin case from the machine.
2. Put the bobbin pin into the hole on top of the hand wheel and
place an empty bobbin on the bobbin pin (spindle).
3. Lift the large spool pin from the back of the machine and
place the spool of thread on the large spool pin.
4. Place the bobbin winder tension clip into the hole in the back
of the machine.
5. Pull the thread to the left and pass it through the bobbin
winder tension disc.
6. Insert the thread through the hole in the bobbin from the inside
out and leave about 3" of thread out. (ensure that the hole on the bobbin is facing upwards)

7. Hold the end of the thread and start the machine, either by
pressing on the start button or the foot control. After the
bobbin winds a few turns, stop the machine and cut the thread
close to the bobbin. (Cut the thread end that is protruding from the hole at the top of the bobbin).


8. Start the machine again and continue winding until the bobbin
is full or the quantity of thread is enough for your needs.
9. Stop the machine and cut the thread. Remove the bobbin from
the bobbin pin.
10.Take out the bobbin pin from the hand wheel and push back
the large spool pin into the slot in the back of the machine.

Good luck :)

Bernina artista 180 bottom stitch bunching


bunching under the material is bird nesting is a result of loose needle thread tension thread the machine up to the point of threading the needle
pull on the thread and you should have a reasonable resistance to pulling the thread
adjust the tension until you get that then thread the needle
while you may be using the tension settings if there is a problem in the tension plates area , the tension will not get high enough regardless of the indicated setting
bobbin tension can be reasonably loose
correct tension is when both threads meet at the center of the materials being sewn

Spool pin not come up


You may have to take the machine apart to get the spool pin. Shake the machine to see if it is loose inside. If you can see the top of the pin a very very strong rare earth magnet may be able to retrieve it from the outside. If the pin is not causing problems inside the machine you can use a thread stand or install another spool pin on the outside of the machine with a pop rivet gun.

Threading double needle


Double needle sewing requires two threads. Most machines have two thread spool pins, one spool on each pin. Both threads are threaded just like a single thread down to the needle, which is where they separate, one thread through each needle. One exception would be on machines that you can see the tension discs, some have a separating disc between the two outer tension discs, therefore, run one thread on either side of this centre disc. Also in zigzag mode, you must realize that you cannot utilize the full width of the zigzag due to the extra width of the needle path.

Bobbon thread is too losse /thread breaks no


Clean out the bobbin area.

Thread the machine with the presser foot up. This opens the tension so the thread can enter. Threading with the foot down closes the tension and the thread cannot enter as it should. When you sew, the top thread is loose and cannot properly connect with the bobbin thread to form a tight stitch. The stitching does not hold and pulls right out.

Thread breakage - top thread? Check the thread spool to be sure there aren't any nicks to catch the thread.

When the thread breaks, check the spool pin to see if the thread is unwinding too fast and wrapping around the pin. Thread nets can help stop this. You can find them at sewing machine dealers.
