Welcome to FixYa. I always try the easiest fixes first - make sure your bobbin is inserted correctly, and that the bobbin thread is securely threaded in the bobbin case (sometimes the bobbin thread doesn't "catch" when you place it in the bobbin case). If all is well in the bobbin area, rethread your machine. Make sure that the presser foot is in the raised position when you thread. If it still isn't sewing correctly, change your needle. These last three steps fix most problems. But, if you are still having problems, look at the thread in the problem bobbin. It should be straight and tight. If it is kind of wobbly and a little loose, you'll need to wind the thread onto a new bobbin.

If are new to sewing, keep your manual close by and refer to it often. Simple mistakes can make a new sewer loose confidence, but it is all part of the process of learning your machine.

Good luck and happy sewing. If you have a sec, please rate my response so I know when I need to work on my responses.

Thanks for stopping in. Ginny

Machine won't stitch


If by "won't stitch" you mean that the top thread will not pick up the bottom thread, make sure you have the needle threaded properly. If the machine is a top loading bobbin, the thread goes in the needle from front to back. Same if it's a side loading bobbin (bobbin faces you as you sew). If it's a front loading bobbin (bobbin faces left of machine), the thread goes in the needle from left to right.

Why won't it pick up the bottom thread while trying to sew a stich/


first of all have you broken the needle ? if so u may have knocked it out of time to check this you need to open the bobbin cover and hand wind the machine and watch the needle as it goes past the bobbin carriage the needle should be on its way up as the point of the carrier goes past it and pick up the loop made by the cotton. To retime the needle arm is not something you can do it needs to be done by a service engineer hope this helps

Needle will not pick up bobbin thread


Sounds like the timing isn't quite right. Your best bet is to go have it serviced and timed.

Brother 1100 threading the bobbin


try changing the needle
rethread the machine top and bobbin
make sure to use every thread guide
make sure the top thread has not come off the thread take up
lever--this can cause the sewing machine to jam
if it's a top loading bobbin--take the bobbin out of the bobbin case
and turn it around and reinsert the bobbin
if it's a side or front loading bobbin take the bobbin and bobbin
case out and make sure the bobbin is inserted correctly into the
bobbin case and that the bobbin case is inserted correctly into the
sewing machine.

The needle thread will not pick up the bobbin thread


It looks right but its not. Try looking on the internet for threading instructions. The bobbin winds in two directions, I have never saw a Bernina but I have 2 new machines and the thread goes in and then threads back to the left. Its hard to describe. But if the bobbin isn't right it will not pick up the thread. Write to Bernina for instructions. There are websites that have the directions for free.
