SOURCE: Bobbing thread not picking

Hi,
Make sure you have threaded the bobbin thread correctly. Also your top thread must be correctly threaded in order to pick up the bobbin thread.
Please let me know if I can help any further.

Best wishes,

The thread balls up on the bottom side, it looks like the foot is not moving the material


Frequently, the top thread is not seated in the top tension disk and it is causing thread nesting (or bird nesting).

Remove the top thread from the machine.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning.
Verify the thread path is correct.
Re-test your machine.

It may help to install a brand needle.
Also, avoid old or bargain bin thread.

If the mess is under the fabric, the issue is the top thread.

Consew machine. My bottom thread has ball knots on the bottom. I have changed the needle and the top stitch is perfect. Please advise.


Re-check the thread that is knotted. It's most likely the top thread causing what is called thread nesting or what I term "thread barfs."

Thread problems appearing on the top of the fabric are generally caused by the bobbin thread. Problems appearing under the fabric are usually a result of upper thread issues.

Remove the top thread.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning.
Verify the thread path is correct.
Set the upper tension to the midway point.

When i first start sewing the thread will bunch up and make a rats nest how do i stop thisa


That is called thread nesting or bird nesting--or what I like to call thread "barfs."

Be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the top thread. This releases the tension disk so the thread will seat completely.

Bring the bobbin thread to the top of the fabric and gently hold both thread tails in your left hand while taking the first stitch or two. It may be beneficial to manually turn the handwheel for the first couple of stitches. It also helps to have the take-up lever at it's highest point BEFORE starting to stitch.

How to fit my bobbing casing?


Use your hand wheel and turn it. Monitor under the throat plate. The part you see moving will eventually show an opening. Stop there and install your bobbin casing. If it has a little metal piece across you will have to lift it slightly. After it is snug you can install the bobbin.

How can I fix this problem on the Necchi sewing


That bird's nest of a jam is very frustrating! Here are a few checks to make.
1. Ensure that the upper thread is threaded correctly, that is, that all the guides are engaged in the correct sequence.
2. Ensure that the upper thread is firmly settled between the tension discs and in the take-up lever.
3. Double check that he needle is inserted correctly.
4. Ensure that the bobbin is inserted correctly ... the thread is spooling off in the correct direction. This is very important.
5. Ensure that the bobbing thread is locked in the tension spring.
6. Make sure that the presser foot is in the down position as you begin stitching.
