Generally when the needle does not pick up the bobbin thread, it means the needle is either too far in or just plain the wrong length. YOu might want to try lowering the needle just a hair and see if that helps.

Is pfaff hobbymatic a heavy duty machine?


The term "heavy duty" sewing machine is thrown about loosely lately. There are new machines (including Pfaff, Singer, etc) for sale advertised as "heavy duty," but I would be hesitant to stitch denim jean hems on them. The Pfaff 807, which appears to be an older mechanical, is probably more "heavy duty" than some newer machines on the market. However, "heavy duty" does not mean that you can sew big canvas sailcloth or heavy upholstery projects. A domestic machine (which the Pfaff 807 is) is really meant for general domestic sewing. If you want to sew "heavy duty" fabric, then look to an industrial machine. Remember that frequent sewing of heavy fabric takes a toll on a domestic machine, ie the motor, needlebar, other working parts, thus hastening the demise of your machine and the more frequent need for service & repair.

GC 500/550 not pulling bobbin thread. My wife has used the machine several times without issue, the last time she broke a needle sewing some denim, we found most of the needle but could not find it all,...


some sewing machines can not sew denim good,
here are some suggestions
since a needle was broken & replaced--if the needle has a flat side it goes to the back of the machine
make sure the needle is inserted correctly & pushed up inside of the needle holder & the needle screw tightened correctly
is the correct needle being used for the thread & fabric being sewed?
when sewing denim, a denim needle is needed, I usually purchase mine at walmart, I have 2 necchi sewing machines & the denim needles work just fine on my machines.

if none of the above suggestions help then the machine could be out of time, just because of a broken needle. only a repair shop has the correct tool to fix this problem

I have a Necchi 3205 Royal series machine. I was sewing denim and it jambed and bent the needle. I replaced the needle and now it won't pull the bobbin thread up. I have tried several different needles...


Hi, I've got a necchi sewing machine too, not the same model as yours.
you said you were sewing denim & the machine jamed & bent the needle, it's sounds like the machine is out of time, sometime it doesn't take much to get them out of time & would have to be serviced by a repair shop with the tools needed to fix the timing.

Will a NECCHI 535FA sew denim jean material okay?


Use a heavy needle and a product called jean-a-majig from Joann fabrics and you will be fine, just make sure you use the correct needle as this is key

The needle jams when i start sewing


Could be threaded wrong - check manual for proper threading
Needle could be bent - check and replace if needed
Needle plate could be damaged - see if any burrs are on it if so take to service dealer and have removed
Bobbin could be wound wrong - check manual
Bobbin could be bent - if so replace.

Bobbin thread will not pick up


Ensure the bobbin thread is mounted on correctly and using your right hand turn the gear that makes the needle go up and down until it catches the thread.

I have the same machine. Try replacing the needle, it could be slightly bent and not be in position to pick up the loop from underneath. A good de-fluff may help too.

It may be the machine, although most machines would have trouble going over the seam. First, use a Denim needle, 90 or 100 and place a "shim" also called a "jean a majig" to keep the presser foot level. If the foot is shifted, the machine will not sew over the bulk. The machine is not real heavy duty, may have problems , anyway.
