This was my first problem - if youhave had a "birdsnest" you probably damaged the bobbin case - take it out and run your finger aroundthe outside edge . You will probabaly find a nick where the needle has crashed down on the bobbin case. If you can sand it smooth it may start pulling the thread around the bobbin again. Twice I have had to replace the bobbin case. It is cheap just google on the internet. Now I have a spare if anything happens. I also found if you stick to the embroidery threads and not try to use up old or cheap thread it will run more smoothly.

SOURCE: while sewing on singer quantum

Mine did this and it seemed impossible to fix. My problem was a tiny bit of thread stuck in the bobbin cover (but it could be anywhere in the thread route). I ran dental floss through the path the thread follows and also in the bobbin cover and poof out came a small piece of thread that all my looking missed. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: keeps "birdnesting", besides rethreading, how do I fix?

when you have bunching on the bottom, you have a problem with the top thread: no tension. (and visa versa) Make sure the thread runs through the tension discs, these discs are activated when you put the presser foot down, so you want to thread the machine with the foot up, also feel if there no burrs, hooks, or whatever, so your top thread comes smooth off the spool, no jerking.

The opening fits on the right side, toward back. There is the silver ring with the slot in it for the bobbin. That slot is facing the sewer.

SOURCE: My Singer Futura keeps beeping

There are a few problems this could be. Your top thread could be broken or about to break; your bobbin thread could be broken, about to break or empty/about to become empty and is loose around the bobbin; you could have a birds' nest (a mass of thread just under the fabric/presser foot and/or within the feed dog and bobbin) forming and causing a jam; or it could be your Futura having a little bit of a hissy fit. Obviously, if you've checked for broken thread you need to move on. Check for a birds' nest by removing the fabric and clip your threads. If you find one, clear it, rethread your bobbin and begin sewing again. If there's no birds' nest, then place the fabric back in and try sewing/embroidering again. If the machine acts up again, I recommend removing the fabric/hoop, rethreading your top and bobbin threads, replacing fabric/hoop and resuming where you left off. If the machine still gives you trouble, try hitting the start button for a couple of times and seeing if the problem doesn't simply resolve itself. When you're embroidering areas that have a few small, short stitches only, the machine seems to act up a little and then behaves fine once you bypass the area. Be sure to take all of the other steps first, though, because a birds' nest will RUIN a beautiful seam or embroidery.

Two questions i own a futura embroidiery sewing machine. I need to purchase a beading foot where can i purchase it 2) My bobbin casing keeps loosing I have to constantly stop sewing and tighten it


First, look for a replacement bobbin case for your machine. And while you doing that, also look for a beading foot.

Try some of the online sewing vendors:

Bobbin Case Singer 416444401

Singer SEQS 6000 Futura Quartet Par

Finding a beading foot make be difficult, but you may be able to find a snap-on adapter and a snap-on beading foot for your machine.

Wheel is stiff. Safety feature keeps stopping


Sounds like their is a bind, you will have to have your local dealer inspect it. Either the machine needs a full oiling or thread has wrapped around something inside.

hope that helps,

I have a Singer Futura CE-150 and it keeps stopping due to "Thread break error" but the thread and bobbin seem okay what could it be?


Either upper thread is not passing through thread sensor area or sensor is broken.
Second possible reason is that if design is not optimized the sporadic speed change provides thread breakage error even if the thread is not broken physically. Make sure your software is updated to optimize it automatically (Futura main menu->Help->Live Update).

Wow, I finally get to have a solution.
1. Turn the machine off.
2. Remove the hoop.
3. CAREFULLY slide the bar on the embroidery unit to the left.
4. CAREFULLY slide the piece where the hoop attaches toward you.
5. Turn on the sewing machine. The machine should take the unit to "standby" with a click.
6. Attach the hoop with the power on.
7. Exit the Futura software.
8. Restart the software.
This "should" fix the problem, however, you may have to repeat this process more than once to get it to "stick".
