  • Remove the needle plate and clear out any stray threads that might have gotten caught in the mechanism.
  • Brush out any fluff at the same time.
  • Take the opportunity to put one drop of oil on any of the moving parts while you have the needle plate off.
I have a Pfaff GrandQuilter, which is an identical machine and this was the problem.
The other replies are equally helpful IMHO.

Sometimes the cutter doesnt leave a long enough tail to start sewing, and the needle wont pick it up, use a diferent thread in bobbin, sometimes thats the issue, or manually extend the thread from the bottom and then start sewing, it will pick it up then

SOURCE: Top thread won't pick up the bobbin thread

re insert the needle, maybe you did not put the needle up as far as it is to go. Make sure the flat side of the needle is to the back of the machine. Without any thread in the machine hand turn the wheel and look to see if the hook of your bobbin would/could catch the thread (to see if timing is right)
then thread the machine and hand turn the wheel and see what it is doing.
Your timing might be off, but I do not think that is likely. Though it is possible that when the needle fell out, it hit something hard, broke, and pushed the machine out of timing. then you need to bring it in.

SOURCE: Husqvarna Sapphire - thread cutter not working

Does the metal arm come out to grab the threads to cut it? Is there a blade in the metal arm that cuts the tread? I think a standard utility knife cutter blade is the same size (just like the one that cuts the bobbin thread when you put in a new bobbin). What happens when you activate the cutter is the arm comes out, grabs the threads, brings them to the blade which cuts the threads, the velcro by the cutter holds the bobbin thread in place for the next stitch. Otherwise the thread may end up on top and the top thread would not be able to pick it up for the next stitch.

Good luck.

If you're sure you're using the correct needles, you should take it to a service tech to align it properly.

Are you using a different bobbin when you try embroidry? The machine forms the stitches the same exact way when you either sew or embroider. It's just that the hoop moves the fabric. Maybe your bobbin thread in not flowing out of your bobbin case freely. Maybe the type of stabilizer your using is the problem. Maybe your not hooping your fabric tight enough.

My nedle on my husqvarna mega quilter will only pick up the bobbin thread through one thickness of fabric and not through all three layers. Suggestions?


Try a brand new needle. A dull or bent needle will frequently not pick up bobbin thread. Also, be sure you are using a needle type that is suitable for the thread and fabric you are sewing, ie if you are sewing woven fabric, use a sharp needle, not a ball point or jersey needle.

If you are still experiencing problems, it could be a timing issue. Take it for service.

Which direction should the bobbin move when pulling the thread in the HV Mega Quilter 18x8? Clockwise or counter?


Hello
Hold the loaded bobbin case in your left hand and gently pull on the thread. The bobbin will rotate clockwise when correctly loaded.

I'm also sending a link to page 17 of the manual for fututre cross-reference.

Each machine is different. Most of the machines that are electronic have a sensor to shut it off if you place the bobbin on the winder and push the winder into its position to wind. Give it a try. Also, check your spindle at the end to pull it outwards or attempt to untighten like you do a jar. This is the old mechanical machine but it is possible this machine uses it. Next you must look on your monitor for a particular symbol that represents the bobbin. This would likely be a button to turn it off and on.
