Try an industrial sewing place. Google "leather sewing machine company. Cobra" The resulting page will have leather sewing machines but they also have the spool holders you are looking for. They just screw right on to your table, mine holds up to 2lb spools of thread.

Winder only winds bobbin loosely


What I do is hold the thread coming from the cotton reel between thumb and index finger to add a little tension, that makes all the difference. Only takes a moment, unless you have a screw tension disc between the cotton reel and the bobbin winder which you could tighten a little.

How come spindle is so short to put spool thread on


Is it the spindle for the top thread or is it the spindle to wind the bobbin? The bobbin is very short because it needs to accommodate only the width of the bobbin. Older machines sometimes do not have thread spindles tall enough for the large spools of thread that can be purchased today. I cut a plastic drinking straw into a length long enough to accommodate the thread spool and simply slip the plastic straw over the thread spindle. Voila! A longer spindle!

How long is sewing thread good for


As long as sewing thread is kept in a dry place - often a biscuit tin or one that has held confectionary is used - then it should remain in good condition for a very long time. I have cotton which is probably 30 years old, and some inherited reels which could be up to 50 years old and which are still in perfect condition.

The machine will not turn the spindle to wind cotton onto the bobbin.


What model Bernina is it? Most operate on a simple system where a rubber wheel on the bobbin winder comes into contact with the handwheel (under the cover) ... the handwheel is disengaged so the needle has no drive.......

Thread is bunching up in bottom.


It sounds like you have no tension on the bottom bobbin reel. Did you check your tension on the bobbin reel. The tension must be right on both sides. When pulling on the cotton when the reel is in its bobbin case you need to feel a little resistance. Adjust the tiny srew on the bobbin case to tighten the reel to avoid it to turn in the casing.

I have an old Singer, Model #6146 from the late 70's or early 80's, can't remember when my mom bought it, but I can't remember how to thread it and I don't know how to put the thread on the bobbin. Any...


Cotton reel on top, take the thread from the reel to the left and over the top guide, straight down throught the tension discs, back up to the take up lever making sure the lever is at the top, through the lever right to left, straight down through any guides and thread needle front to back.
To wind the bobbin, reel of cotton on top, bobbin on bobbin winder making sure it is pushed to the left, take the thread to the left and round the small wheel and back to the winder, wind the thread round a few times on the bobbin, push the windewr to the right, and loosen the stop motion in the balance wheel.

My Husqvarna Designer I has an upper thread tension problem... the thread gets "caught" right at the beginning point of the threading process and the machine comes to a dead stop. There's major bobbin...


My guess is that it is the thread spooling off the reel that is the problem. Some of those specialty quilting cottons come on reels with plastic ends that have rough spots particularly knicks where you are supposed to "park" the thread end when you are done sewing. Run your fingers around the rim at each end of the reel and choose the smoother one to be the one closest to the threading mechanism. If neither end is suitable, flip the spool holder upwards so it is standing at a right angle to the machine, make sure the large spool holder is on then put the thread on - you won't need the smaller spool holder on top. Let the thread feed off from the right-hand side i.e. "under" the thread spool, across to the tension disks etc. Also be sure that the thread is not jumping out of that first thread tension slot.

Riccar 9600, no manual, how do we thread it?


If I remember it is reel of thread on the reel pin, make sure the presser foot is up and takeup lever at the top, take the thread to the left and over the top cotton guide, straight down through the tension disc and down to the larger guide, round the right and take the thread back up the left hand side, through the takeup lever right to left and follow the guides all the way down to the needle, thread needle front to back.
