SOURCE: Picking up the bobbin thread

A few suggestions:

  1. Rethread top of machine from scratch with the presser foot raised, i.e. remove thread completely from all thread guides & paths and start from scratch, making sure thread is securely seated between tension disks. Once the needle is re-threaded, lower the presser foot and give the tail end of the thread a tug to make sure there's tension on it.
  2. Make sure the bobbin is turning the correct direction for your machine - and that the thread tail is under the tension plate or bobbin tension guide (depending on machine).
  3. Blow out any fuzz.
  4. Insert a new needle, making sure needle is pushed all the way up.
  5. Oil machine (in locations recommended in your owner's manual).
If the basic cleaning and re-threading (above) don't help, your machine(s) may be out of time or have another mechanical issue that will require a repair technician. We recommend a tech trained on your specific brands - they'll be better trained and able to get any repair parts that may be needed.

Hope this helps narrow down your stitching problems.

Happy sewing,
Kim & Linnette

SOURCE: Threading the Bobbin

Place the bobbin in the bobbin case making sure the thread feeds clockwise. Draw the thread through the slot on the case. Continue to draw under the tension spring and through the opening pulling out about 6" of thread. Hold the latch open, position the bobbin case into the suttle and release the latch. THe case should lock into place when the latch is relaeased.

With the top thread, hold out about 5" to the left. While holding on tot he top thread, turn the hand wheel toward you and you should see a loop at the feed dogs. grab the two thread and bring them behind the presser foot.

My Bernina 200 bobbin thread snagged and now the bobbin thread will not catch the top thread when I sew, thus, there are no stitches made in the fabric.


1. CHANGE NEEDLE.
2. ADJUST BOBBIN TENSION. MAKE SURE YOU ARE USING THE RIGHT BOBBIN FOR THE MACHINE. THE WRONG ONE WILL NOT ROTATE FREELY. HANG FROM FINGER AND BOB. SHOULD EXTEND ONE INCH WHEN ADJUSTED RIGHT.
3. ADJUST TOP TENSION. (START AT 3)4. EXTEND TWO INCHES OF THREAD FROM BOBBIN. HOLD TOP THREAD TO THE FRONT AND A LITTLE TO THE RIGHT.
5. TURN HAND WHEEL TOWARDS YOU. THE BOTTOM THREAD SHOULD COME UP FROM UNDER THE PLATE.
6. IF THE THREAD DOESN'T FEED FROM THE BOBBIN TO THE TOP OF THE PLATE THE TIMING IS OFF AND WILL NEED TO BE ADJUSTED.

Machine is Jammed


Try turning the wheel to the right end manually----briskly back and forth to loosen thread that are caught in the bobbin. Remove bobbin and clear threads. If none, remove plate below needle to see if thread or fluffy threads are clogged below. No good...have it serviced by a professional.

I can't get the tension right


try rethreading the machine--use every thread guide
make sure the top thread has not come off the thread take up lever
change the needle --make sure it's the right one for the fabric
being sewed
make sure the bobbin is turned the right way in the bobbin case
if the bobbin is a front or side loading also make sure the bobbin
case is inserted correctly into the machine
if none of these suggestions help then the machine needs to be
checked to see if it's a timing problem

I have an Elna Funstyler sewing machine and when i sew zig zag the bobbin thread shows up on top, have tried changing tension and doesn't help. Is there any way to oil this machine? Instruction manual say...


If your thread tension is OK and u have correctly threaded machine, I would check manual for first the right bobbin and put in machine right. I have have issues from badly wound bobbins too. If you have replaced correct needle and your fabric, thread and tension are good, I would check manual for the right bobbin tension. Wish I knew more to help......

My bobbin thread keeps coming to the top of my fabric during embroidering on my Singer Futura CE350, I've tried bobbin embroidery thread, regular embroidery thread and clear nylon thread, I've tried...


With the embroidering, some of the bobbin thread is SUPPOSED to show on the top of your embroidery-the machine isn't doing anything incorrectly. You'll need to thread your bobbin with the same thread as you are using with the top. I had the same "problem" when I first got the machine and took it to a wonderful local technician whose helped me with a lot of things who informed me that this is perfectly normal on embroidery machines.

When I sew a few inches, bunches of threads come out of the bobbin case. It's like it gets clogged or something. I'm getting nowhere with this. Help!


If your bobbin is the correct one for your machine and it is wound tight, not loose and puffy, make sure the thread is going the right way when installed (over the top to the left and then placed flat in the bobbin case). Usually if the thread bunches underneath your fabric it means that the TOP thread is threaded incorrectly. Try re-threading the upper thread. Good luck!

My needle keeps coming unthreaded. HELP please


1) Open the needle plate and bobbin case and make sure the tangled threads are removed.

2) Open the manual; read and follow every step.

3) Thread the machine with the presser foot up - this is often overlooked and causes loopy stitches that pull right out.

4) Make sure the bobbin in inserted so the bobbin thread is feeding from the bobbin spool in the correct direction and through the proper guides.

5) Take hold of the needle thread and lower, then raise the needle to pull the bobbin thread up through the needle plate. Take both threads under the presser foot and to the back of the machine.

6) When you come to the end of the stitching, make sure the take up lever is at it's highest position. This will keep the thread from coming out of the needle when you begin to sew.

I hope this will help and you will soon be sewing.

How do you thread a kenmore sewing machine I can't figure out how to thread the bobbin for kenmore machine 1385.15343600.  I am a beginner, so I will need pretty detailed instructions. Thanks! Jenny


Put the bobbin on the short metal stick on top of the machine. Unthread the machine. Put the spool of thread on the tall, left side stick on top of the machine. Take the thread and wrap it counter clockwise around the circular, short, metal thing on the left side of the top of the machine, only 180 degrees. Thread the thread through the hole in the bobbin (which should be on top). Press the bobbin to the right, into the little white thing. Pull the turning wheel on the right side of the machine out. While holding the end of the thread, softly press the presser foot so that the thread goes around the bobbin a few times. After that, cut the end down to the bobbin. Now, press the presser foot down and wind the bobbin until it stops on it's own.
