My singer model is 6215c where can i get a free copy of instructions on how to set the bobber so it will move .and i need the needle size the needles that came withit keeps breaking.


Sounds like you need to have your machine professionally serviced. The needles that were included with your machine are not at fault--the machine needs to be adjusted to work properly.

From where can i buy elna sewing machine needels? Pleace.


Consult your owner's manual for the size needles your machine takes. Usually, it is 130/705 needles.

If so, you can purchase this size from most any fabric, sewing repair shops, or online vendors. There are many manufacturers who make needles, ie Schmetz, Organ, Klasse, as well as Singer. Schmetz is readily available most places in the US. (IMHO, Singer needles are made more specifically for Singer sewing machines and may not work as well on a non-Singer machine. Most Singer machine manuals recommend using only Singer needles and some sewists have experienced problems when using a different brand.) You may have to experiment with brands if you have any problems with a specific manufacturer brand.

However, there is much more to choosing needles for your machine than the size and brand. The most important choices are to choose needles that suit the thread & fabric you will be sewing. Be sure to read up on the needle types (from smallest 65/9 to heavier 110/18) and the design/shape that will work best for you, ie sharps (for woven fabric) or ball-point (for knits), quilting, topstitch, embroidery, microtex, stretch, denim, universal, leather, etc.
"The European metric sizing system for sewing machine needles is numbered from 60 to 110. The American sizing system is numbered from 8 to 18. For both sizing systems, the lower the number the finer the needle and the higher the number the larger the needle. Most needle companies show both sizes on the package." (quote from Singer)

In addition, if your machine is capable, you may also be able to use twin, triple needles, wing, wedge point needles. The following will be helpful when you make your purchasing choices:

Where can i find needles for a singer 306k machine ?


What type of material are you going to be sewing? Sew-Classic has 10 needle packages of the size 12 and size 14 needles for the Singer 306 for light (not fine) and medium weight material. (It's a 206x13 needle for the single needle. The twin needle is a 306x3.) See http://shop.sew-classic.com/206x13-Sewing-Machine-Needles_c46.htm .

http://www.allbrands.com/products/15221-schmetz-german-206x13-flat-shank-needles-100-size has some notes on alternative needles. The site has boxes of 100 size 14 and size 12 needles. (The size 14 needles are out of stock due to delays on the manufacturer's side.) https://www.college-sewing.co.uk/206X13-SIZE-90-PACK-OF-10-NEEDLES (size 14) needles in stock.

Unfortunately, I do not see any twin needles available for the 306K. I hope this helps.

Singer 758 model and the thread is bunching up from the bobbin under the material


try changing the needle--flat side goes to the back of machine
rethread the machine top & bobbin--make sure to use every thread guide
make sure bobbin is wound correctly & inserted correctly in the bobbin case
clean under the needle plate & in the bobbin area for lint or loose threads
if you don't have a manual try singer
Go to the singer website
Click on customer support--there will be a drop down menu

What size needle to use


Use Organ HA x 1SP needles size 90 (14) for general sewing or 75 (11) for light weight fabrics. These are common needles and Amazon carries them. There are other sources. When you choose the needle size, look at your thread relative to the groove in the needle. (The thread should fit in that groove.) I use the Singer Sewing Book for good pictures of the needle to thread size.

Singer has the manuals for the Superlock 2000 ATS on their site. Part 1 of the manual is here: http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/984_sl-2000-ats-wb-a-x.pdf . All manuals are here: http://www.singerco.com/accessories/instruction-manuals . Enter the model number without the letters after the number.

I hope this helps.

Needle size replacement. I ran out of spare needle for my Brother XL-5500 sewing machine. Does anyone now the size and model of the replacement needle? thanks


. Schmetz is excellent, Singer etc. Needles all work in the machines but most of your sewing will be done with an #11, but denim, for instance will be at least a #14, #16 depending on what you are doing. Buy an assortment of sizes, sharps for regular and ball point for knits, they are very inexpensive. Do not keep a dull needle in your machine, throw away old and start every new project with a fresh one.
