There are lots of men who sew...it is not gender specific.

Perhaps this will help--unfortunately not free:

Montgomery Wards Sewing Machine Instruction and Service Manuals

Montgomery Ward did not make their own machines, so it was most likely manufactured by a sewing machine company with Montgomery Ward's name on it.

However, most machines thread similarly. Just be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the top thread--this allows the thread to seat in the tension disk. Set the top tension to about the midway point to start and then tweak from there.

Understanding Thread Tension Threads

Bobbin tension is usually the last thing to try to adjust...be sure to mark the screw setting BEFORE making any adjustment...

Bobbin Tension How and Why Tension is Adjusted

Needles are probably the least expensive resolution to a lot of sewing machine problems--change them often!!! About every 8 hours of sewing, and be sure to use a needle that is compatible with the thread and fabric. Be sure to install the needle with the flat part facing the correct direction. Most machines have the flat part facing the back of the machine, however, some machines with the bobbin loading from the side will have the flat part of the needle facing the harp (throat) of the machine. AVOID old or bargain bin threads! Use fresh, good quality sewing machine thread (generally, Coats & Clark is not one of them...)

SOURCE: bunching thread underneath

When your thread is bunching at the bottom, your top tension is not tight enough, or you did not thread the machine correctly. Make sure the thread goes through the tension blades. Check your manual how to do it properly. you can check if there is any tension by pulling on the thread before threading through the eye of the the needle, and with the presser foot down. By pulling with the left hand and adjusting the tension with the right hand you should be able to feel a difference. Normal setting is between 3 and 5

I need a power cord with foot pedal for a montgomery ward sewing machine model UHT J 1980? Anybody have any ideas. Could also use a manual


Don't know if problem is resolved, but I put a Mont Ward sewing machine model # UHT 1460 on Washington DC Craigslist a few moments ago. Could not fix it, so am selling it for parts (something is wrong with bobbin assembly and I give up!!). If you just want the power cord and foot contact me through there and I will detach it and mail it to you--the postage shouldn't be too much for just those parts.
