This is an operator error. You need to get into the habit of grasping both threads and holding them for the first few stitches.

As for the bobbin thread not picking up it could be your hook timing is off. Do you know how to adjust this?

SOURCE: when starting to sew, cotton

it is possible that the needle & thread are not compatable
here's how to check
Cut 6-8 inch piece of thread of the spool you are going to use for your project
Take the needle you are going to use for the project
& insert the thread thru the eye of the needle
& lift one end of the thread to a 45 degree angle
& if the needle is the right size for the thread it will slide down the thread
But if the needle hangs on the thread you need one size larger needle for the thread

SOURCE: when I Try to sew all the thread on the bottom

It is in your top threading not in the tension discs right. Totally rethread as per your manual, now with the presser foot up, pull on the top thread, it should feed smoothly, now put the presser foot down, pull thread and it should barely move. Sometimes that seat the thread in the tension discs right. Read your manual and it will answer lots of questions for yopu. Hope that helps you.

Why is the fabric not feeding forward when stitching


on the front of the machine there is a lever/knob that sets the stitch size
if it is in the middle position ,the teeth will just go up and down and not back and forward
check that setting
it is used to seal of the threads when starting to sew and when finishing
start the sew for about 1/2" then reverse the feed then go forward again to complete the sewing
at the end of the sew do the same thing again before cutting the threads
this locks the threads as a knot so that the seam will not come undone

Why does my thread knot on the back when stitching in place?


Several things to try:
Pull thread tails (both bobbin thread and upper thread) straight back and when you lower the presser foot, make sure they are held down straight back. This may or may not be enough to solve the problem, but it is simple to try, and often works. You might want to hold the thread tails while you start sewing.
Use a starter--folded piece of fabric scrap about an inch long--and begin sewing oink middle of starter. Push the fabric you want to see right up to the starter and keep sewing from the starter right onto your project without lifting the presser foot or cutting the thread. When you finish sewing, cut the little piece of thread between the starter and your project.
Before lowering presser foot, use wheel to lower your needle once and then pull up bobbin thread to top surface of your project. Then hold both bobbin and upper thread tails, lower your presser foot, and begin sewing. Release the thread tails after a few stitches.
Hope this helps. Those nasty "thread nests" are a real pain.

My Janome 415 is playing up and wont allow me to sew


Did you lower the feed dogs some how? Check the front and back of the machine near the sewing area. Look for a slide switch. It may even be under the part you remove to make it a free arm. (might look in the manual for where yours is specifically.

Another thing. You should always grasp and hold the thread ends when you begin a seam. That just good practice for ANY sewist.

When i start sewing sometimes the material gets sucked down into the feeds dogs. this causes the thread and the material to make a mess i sometimes can not get the thread out i am making quilt pieces


Use a scrap of fabric under the pressure foot as a leader and feed the quilt square after it clears just like if you are chain sewing. After you have sewn the square clip the scrap off and use it again.

Machine starts to sew then upper thread knots up on underside of fabric


Do each of these steps one at a time and then test a seam on scrap fabric of the same type.

1. Make sure you thread the machine correctly with the feed dog lever in the up position. (this opens the tension discs, allowing the thread to seat correctly)

2. Make sure your needle and thread are the correct size for the fabric and that you've oriented the needle correctly and have it fully seated into the needle bar.

3. When beginning to sew a seam, always grasp both threads and hold them as you begin to sew.

4. Loops on the bottom of the fabric means that the upper tension is too loose. Tighten the upper tension a little at a time until loops disappear.

Good luck.

Fabric stuck when sewing


Several things could be happening. It may be the hook/needle timing. Or it could be the feeddogs are not moving (that's the toothy looking part under the presser foot that moves the fabric). Recommend removing thread and bobbin (needle and presser foot). Slowly move the handwheel and put your finger on top of the feeddogs to determine if they are moving back and forth and are high enough to move the fabric. Check to make sure you had not manually lowered the feed dogs. You may need to take it to an authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer for their assistance. You can find the closest dealer at the Husqvarna Viking website - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com/us
