No, sewing machines that use bobbins don't have an adapter like that. It would be difficult to get the bottom tension right working off the spool. The best solution is to fill several bobbins in your thread color before starting to sew. Then when you run out, swap in a new bobbin.

Some advanced machines will warn you when the bobbin runs low. (I've seen the feature on the machines with touch-screens.)

I wish that I had better news for you. A serger might be a an option to consider. They don't use a bobbin and can be used for some sewing projects. You can still run out of thread on one cone before the others run out. (Those machines use 3-4 threads at a time for the basic stitches. The knife can be lowered if you don't want to trim your fabric while stitching.)

(I've got a Singer Touch and Sew and usually don't run out of bobbin during a seam. I will swap bobbins when they are still 1/4 full at times if I get concerned about the bobbin running out.)

SOURCE: Sewing machine: Problem getting bobbin to automatically wind with thread from spool

You ought to have a 3 mth warantee with this used machine, take it back to the dealer and have them fix this problem...in Australia, consumer law provides that the sale of goods requires that they are "fit for their intended purpose".....there is almost certainly a similar provision where you are........get it remedied soon, as a feature that has not worked since you purchased ....perhaps calling first to ensure you are able to meet with the service person to explain.

I would not recommend you open it yourself until the dealer has looked at it.

If they cannot fix it, ask for replacement or money back.

SOURCE: Singer Sewing Machine model 9224. Bobbin thread

If you turn the handwheel, can you see a metal ring rotating around the outer edge of the bobbin case? If not rotating, broken gear or timing belt off.
If that ring is turning, remove the needle plate and bobbin case. As this ring now rotates, you will a finger on the ring that will pass behind the needle from right to left and it should catch the thread from the eye of the needle. If this finger, the "hook" passes above the eye, you have a timing problem.

Let me know.

Can't figure out how to fill the bobbin


hi Beverly.
you have not said what make and model.
but try this.
Always wind the bobbin before threading the machine and needle.
  1. Place spool of thread on spool pin.
  2. Slide spool pin holder/cap firmly over rim of spool to prevent thread from tangling.
  3. Push bobbin winder pin to far left if it is not already there.

Singer quantum XL-150 how do i thread this machine?


All Singer models would have arrows/numbers to guide your top threading from the spool pin to top thread guide, for most machine start from your thread spool pin, to a thread guide follow arrow down then up into the take up lever and down to the needle thread guide then into the needle hole. Assuming you have wind and install the bobbin thread into the bobbin case, turn your hand wheel towards you makes the needle bar goes down,keep on turning till the needle bar is fully up again, pull the end of the top thread to pick out the bobbin/bottom thread. With your material/fabric under the presser feet, apply the presser feet lever down, you are ready to sew.

How do you thread the bobbin on the model 9805c?


To wind a bobbin, reel on top of the machine, take the thread to the left and go around the small wheel, back to the winder, bobbin on the windere and wind the thread round a few times, slacken the stop motion and wind the bobbin.
If you have a drop in bobbin, hold the bobbin in your left hand, thread on the bottom of the spool, drop the spool in, take the thread through the slot to the left and lay it across the bobbin with enough thread to be pulled through by the needle

How do you adjust the bobbin


Hello

Set the tension on the sewing machine for the weight of the material you want to sew. The tension setting shows in the stitch on the material. Use the chart on the machine that matches types of stitches with suggested material tensions. An example of this is, the stitch to sew jean material is different than the stitch to sew silk.

Take the bobbin and wind the thread around it. Make sure the bobbin is empty and don't fill it too full of thread. A bobbin filled too full won't stay tightly spun.

Thread the string evenly on the bobbin. Move the thread back and forth evenly and in layers that are level. Many Singer sewing machines have a bobbin winder on the top of the sewing machine, and the consistency of how it threads can save you frustration later.

Find the hole on the bobbin that is located near the inside spindle of the bobbin. Take the thread sitting on the sewing machines spool and insert the thread in the hole from inside the bobbin to the outside. Set the threaded bobbin on the spool designated for spinning on the top of the sewing machine for some Singers.

Turn the side drive wheel slowly until the threaded bobbin has a layer or two of thread on it. Push down on the drive peddle and fill the bobbin, but don't thread it to the very edge. If the bobbin is too full the thread will release erratically. Cut the thread from the spool.

Drop the bobbin into the bobbin case under the area where the needle sews the material. Close the case and turn by hand the side wheel drive until the bobbin threads into the sewing machine. You can tell when the bobbin is threaded by the tiny piece of thread that juts out of the bobbin case where the needle goes up and down.

Grab the thread with your fingers and pull it out approximately 4 inches. Your bobbin is now spun and threaded.

How do i thread my needle with the singer handy stitch?


  1. Loosen needle screw & insert needle with shank's flat side facing front of machine. Push needle in all the way, then tighten screw to hold needle in place.
  2. Install a fully wound bobbin by loosening bobbin nut & placing bobbin on top. Re-attach bobbin nut & tighten. If standard thread spool will be used, then attach spool pin to bobbin shaft & place thread spool onto shaft. Attach white spool cap on end of thread spool, then tighten. Bobbin/spool should unwind facing forward toward needle.
  3. Bring end of thread through thread guides & over tension control. Pass end of thread through needle eye, from back to front, & pull it out about two inches.
  4. A spring pushes pressor foot onto fabric that is being sewn, so lift pressor foot & place fabric underneath.
  5. Turn large handwheel on side of machine (handwheel can be turned in either direction) to raise needle arm to its highest position.
  6. Holding the Handy Stitch in place with your right hand, press on power switch & begin sewing. Guide fabric (being sewn) with your left hand.
  7. To end this sewing session, turn off power. Turn handwheel to raise needle to its highest position. Carefully pull out about three inches of thread through needle & snip, then lift pressor foot to remove fabric. Turn fabric over & loop needle threader through last stitch. Place end of thread from underside through eye of needle threader, & pull to loop through. Pull to tighten and snip end of thread.

Thread is not pulling off spool while trying to fill a bobbin.


There are a couple things that come to mind. If your plate is not pushed all the way up where it engages the metal tab on the bobbin, it will not wind properly. Second, if you are using a generic or an old bobbin, you need to replace it. I have seen many machines drive the owners crazy and it turned out to be a bad bobbin.

I can pull the thread from the spool out


I solved this problem by buying a new Apollo Singer bobbin. It was $12.00 at a local sewing machine store. This bobbin is everywhere, since it goes with about 30 Singer sewing machine models.

I had to do a little adjusting to the new bobbin. 1/3 of a turn loosening the tiny screws.
