    I started to fill the bobbin, half way full, all the lights started flashing and an error tone sounded. If I shut it off and turned it back on the error cleared. I can sew with not problem, but cannot fill the bobbin, or again get the error.

Just got secondhand silver ree 280, it does 2 or 3 rows then misses lots of stitches followed manual about weever brushes etc help

Try to sew with a straight stitch on the furthest left side of the foot. Now, try to sew on the furthest right side. Did you stop sewing on one side or the other? If it did you can be sure it needs to be timed by a repairman.

Skipping stitches with horizontal movement. Vertical stitching is good

Check with straight stitch on needle left position. Now, try straight stitch on right needle position. Did you miss some stitches? Just let the repairman know your results and they will know exactly what the problem is.

How do I change my needle position to a scant 1/4 stitch

Unless your machine has multiple minute needle positions, you probably won't get a perfect scant 1/4 inch with that method. I haven't found a 1/4" foot or a needle position that gives a perfect scant 1/4".

Instead, look at setting a mark on the sewing machine surface that measures a scant 1/4" from the needle point. I use a ruler and set the needle point on a scant 1/4" from the ruler edge, then use painter's tape or something similar to mark the guide where the fabric edge will set.

Or, the fastest and easiest guide is a pad of 3X5 Post-It Notes. Measure a scant 1/4" from the needle point, remove the back sheet of a Post-It pad, and then align the sticky edge of the pad to the scant 1/4". Instant fabric guide that is easy to remove and is reusable.

Brother cs8060 needle hits needle or throat plate (when in default left position)

There is an arm that moves the needle arm back and forth. It has an adjustment that has a hex or screw that can be rotated to adjust the end of movement. The screw is usually locked with another screw tightening down on it.

How do I adjust the needle position for straight sewing?

The stitch Width selection regulates straight-stitch or zig-zag width. Needle position does not determine straight or zig-zag. Needle position just determines whether the needle's home position is center, left, or right. Needle position can be used with straight or zig-zag stitching.

How to change needle position (left, right, center)

Which stitch are you using? As far as I can tell, the Stylist 7258 only allows you to change the needle position for straight stitches. If the machine is set to Pattern 00, press the right or left buttons from the 4 arrow keys in the manual setting arrows until the needle is in the desired position.

For all other stitches, the left/right arrows adjust the stitch width. This is described on page 30 (in English) of the manual. You can download the manual from the product page under the support tab: . The direct link to the manual is .

I hope this helps.

Straight stiches great. select any other stitch and it stitches about an inch and then stops

Test: With straight stitch and needle on left side sew.
With straight stitch and needle on right side sew.
Does one of the two sew and the other not sew?
The reason is the timing of the needle and bobbin are not set right. In other words it is in need of timing from a repairman.
