SOURCE: sewing machine has bobbin thread would around winding shaft

If the bobbin is on correctly try crossing the thread before going through the tensioner which should solve this problem and also a more evenly wound bobbin.

SOURCE: the bobbin

You need to turn the wheel inside the handwheel to wind a bobbin. You will feel it "release". (I think you turn it towards you - can't remember, sorry!) Don't forget to turn it back when you are done.

SOURCE: Automatic bobbin winder does not stop when bobbin is full

Simply loosen the screw on the bobbin winder stop, no more than 1 full turn or you will drop the backing nut will fall down into your machine, move the bobbin winder stop slightly to the left then tighten the screw and see if that works. you may have to repeat this step several times until you find the right spot to stop the bobbin at the correct point.

SOURCE: Pfaff sewing machine 1469.

It is not that the thread is not being picked, it is just that the tension of both the top and bottom threads is not equal. That is why the thread at the bottom gets collected because the lower thread is loose compared to the top one. Loosen the top thread by unscrewing the thread tightner a little at a time. The problem will be sorted out when tension get equal or near equal.

My bobbin is winding really slow on my Pfaff Quilt Expressions 4.2. It used to wind fast and don't know what happened.


Hard to say.

Does it wind slow with both methods? I would double check that the thread path is correct--incorrect thread path could cause it move slower

You may find a standalone bobbin winder (Sidewinder for $30) avlb at JoAnn's or on Amazon. Nice little accessory that lets you wind multiple bobbins without unthreading the machine and also saves wear and tear on your machine.

Trying to wind bobbin on my pfaff sewing machine but the bobbin doesn't tur


Hello Kathy
Make sure that:
1. The correct bobbin is being used ... make sure that the bobbin is the one specified for your machine.
2. Make sure that the bobbin is pushed all the way down on the bobbin winding spindle.
3. Make sure that the bobbin winder is engaged ... pushed over for winding.
4. Make sure that the thread is not tightly wound around something preventing it from advancing onto the bobbin.
5. Refer to page 18 of the Manual. If you need one, it is available for free at:
PFAFF tiptronic 6232 Instruction Manual Page 22

May this get you back to sewing very quickly. Please give me a thumbs up if this is helpful, otherwise send me more information.

How to thread bobbin 451 Pfaff


Having difficulty even locating a photo of the 451. Assuming this is an older model, perhaps this manual will help. It says its also for the 551, so perhaps the model is close enough that it will help you with your machine:

Pfaff 551 Manual pages 1 viewing

If you are unable to figure out the bobbin winder, you may be able to use a standalone bobbin winder (one brand is called Sidewinder) from the fabric store. They run ~$25-30. Just be sure to bring a bobbin with you to check the fit.

My bobbin winds unevenly, there is always more thread at the bottom of it than there is at the top. Neither switching to the original pfaff bobbin nor either spool position works.


I always use my finger to guide the thread as the bobbin is winding,the bobbin shouldn't be moving around in the metalcase probably needs tightened.

I'm trying to do shirring?


My machines has a shirring foot, so I don;t have the same machine. However, I do not think that elastic thread will work in the bobbin. Have you tried it the other way around? Do you have your manual?
