Re: brother XR65 twin needle threading

Hi roscoepc1.....The threading pattern is identical to single needle. The only changes are that you now are threading 2 spools of thread, one thread for each needle. The only change that I reccommend, but not neccessary, is that while threading through the tension dial, lay your threads between separate discs, and not together between the same pair of discs. Your tension dial contains either 3 or 4 discs.......please update your post if you have any further information or questions.....good luck my friend

How to use a twin needle on my SR2000 toyota sewing machine

First, verify that your machine can use a twin needle. Most machines take will use a twin needle will have separate thread guides and duel thread spool pins.

To thread it, thread one thread all the way through one of the needles and then thread the second thread through to the second needle. This will help keep the threads from twisting.

How to thread with double needle

You'll need to use two separate spools of thread. Machines that take a twin needle will usually have separated thread guides and two separate tension disks. Just make sure the threads are not twisted when threading. Might be better to thread one all the way through and then thread the second.

How To Use Twin Needles

Be sure to check the width of your stitch when using a twin needle. Because the needles will be wider than a single needle, it is very easy to hit the needle plate if setting it too wide.

Twin needle not catching bottom thread

it's probably time to get new twin needles, the point of the left
needle could be slightly damaged.
I would also suggest that the machine be rethreaded top & bobbin
make sure to use every thread guide
clean under the needle plate and in the bobbin area for lint
if buying new needles doesn't solve the problem then the machine
may need to be checked to see if there is a problem with the timing.

Can't seem to thread the machine properly so's I can use twin needle and pin tuck foot. Keeps de-activating the machine, so obviously not threading it properly, but can't understand the instruction book.

when you insert the twin needles, & add the 2nd spool of thread,, you just thread the machine the same way as with a single needle,,
that's what I do & it works just fine

I am trying to use a twin needle, however, every time I begin sewing the machine makes a very unhappy sound as though the needle is being blocked as it tries to pick up the bobbin thread. I have tried ...

check to see if the twin needle are damaged
check the bobbin & make sure the bobbin case is thread correctly
needle & thread may not be 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

Bobbin tangles up thread and jams machine

Hi, Is it your bobbin thread or the top thread wrapping around the bobbin. I just got a used PE150. The top thread keeps wrapping around the bobbin. It is not picking up the bobbin thread. Did you find a solution for your problem?
