Sorry no stitches are forming on my singer promise machine everything else is fine
This may be a silly thing to ask you, have you made sure the machine is threaded up correctly, if yes is you shuttle bobbin full and fitted correctly so the tail of the cotton enters the side tension spring if applicable, if the answer is yes to both of these questions, then, check that the needle is the correct way round if all is okay there, then the next question is have you jammed the machine with cotton whilst trying to sew or have you broken a needle, if the answer is yes the possibility is that the pick up hook on your shuttle case as been knocked out of timing and is unable to pick up the shuttle bobbin thread, and are you confident enough to set the timing of the hook your self, the hook should be just and only just approaching the needle in it's lowest position as it is about to rise up again, depending how tight the hook assembly is on it's shaft is without undoing the clamp screw that secure it in place. Remove the bobbin and sole plate and rotate the machine by hand in the correct rotation and watch what the hook does as it approaches the needle if it's found to be out of position then hold the hand wheel tight, then gently rotate the hook case to it's correct position as described a above, you will need to use a screw driver or something of that nature to achieve this, only lever a small amount at a time you will feel a slight resistance to rotate in either direction. Once satisfied you done it correctly recheck before you run machine.
Good luck to you.
