SOURCE: Winding the bobbin - Simplicity Denim Start SW210

you have to move the lever so as to engage it to the wheel. Don't thread the thread all the way to the needle. only lead it around the top position. Disengage the small wheel on the right so that the needle doesn't go up and down.

SOURCE: thread breaking on Simplicity Denim Star

Hi, when your thread breaks or frays right before in goes through the eye of the needle:

  1. Change your needle - after awhile, the eye can wear down and cause your thread to break or fray, eventhough it looks like the thread isn't even going through the needle. When you change your needle, make sure to install a needle that is compatible with the thread you are using (see below).
  2. If your thread still frays or breaks, make sure you've threaded your machine correctly. Most machines have a hook or bar right above the needle that your thread need to pass thru before you put the thread thru the eye of your needle. Sometimes that spot above the needle is really hard to get to, and sometimes the thread slips out. Always a good idea to double check. If you are still having problems, the needle you are using is probably the wrong size.
There are lots of needles on the market, and lots of threads. You need to make sure your needle is compatible with the thread you use for each project.

The most common needles are size 80 and 90 universal needles, which are fine for most sewing projects. But if you are using a specialty thread, you need to use a needle that is designed to work with that particular thread. For example, top stitching needles have a larger eye than a universal needle, because top stitching thread is thicker than sewing thread. The same is true for metallic thread - needles made for metallic thread an eye designed to allow the thread to pass thru without fraying. Further, if you using fine thread, you need a small needle.

FYI - unfortunately, thread sizes do not correspond directly with needle sizes. Small needle numbers indicate a needle with a small eye. But the smaller the thread size, the larger the thread. For example, size 50 thread is very fine and would usually be used with a size 70 needle. Size 30 thread is fairly thick and would probably be used with a size 90 top stitch needle.

Hope this helps, and remember, you should always change your needle after about 10 hours of sewing, no matter what size needle you are using. If you have more questions, please post again. Thanks, Ginny

SOURCE: How to properly thread the bobbin

From the Simplicity Sew Precious Model SWSP2 manual:
Inserting a new bobbin:

  1. Place wound bobbin into the bobbin case.
  2. Pull about 6 inches of thread out from the bobbin. NOTE: Be sure that the bobbin rotates COUNTER-CLOCKWISE when thread is pulled.
  3. Pass the thread from the bobbin, under the bobbin case spring, and toward the back of the machine.
  4. Slide bobbin cover back into position.

Why does my bobbin stop winding thread while of it wheel is pulled out


Not quite understanding the problem. However, for ~$30 you can buy a stand-alone bobbin winder (JoAnn's, Amazon...) that you can use to wind all your bobbins. Most units will run on batteries or electricity. Great little accessory since you can wind bobbins quickly without unthreading your machine and saves wear and tear on your machine.

I have the Bernina Artista 180. It is not recognizing when I turn the bobbin winder on. Any suggestions?


For a quick fix and until you can get your machine serviced, pick up a Sidewinder bobbin winder (check to make sure your bobbins will work since the larger Bernina bobbins may not). I purchased a Sidewinder a few years ago and use it all the time. Saves wear-n-tear on the machine but also lets you quickly wind multiple bobbins without having to unthread your machine. Most Sidewinders are battery operated, but mine also has an AC adaptor for electrical usage too.

Singer 3232 machine was sewing fine now motor runs but needle does not move up and down


Check if the machine is in the bobbin winding mode. To wind the bobbin, the bobbin spindle has to be moved to the right. (The hand wheel will not turn if the bobbin spindle is in this position.) If it is, move the spindle to the left.

If the hand wheel turns, then check for a thread jam. Remove the top thread and take out the bobbin case. Gently turn the hand wheel forward and backwards until the thread comes free of the hook in the bobbin race. Follow this by cleaning any lint from the bobbin race of the sewing machine.

The last possibility is that the belt has failed. This belt transfers the energy from the motor to the needle bar. One source of the belt is http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/motor-belt-singer-007158xxl5.aspx . You can find YouTube videos on changing the belt. There are other parts that transfer the forces form the belt to the needle bar. However, I suggest you find a good sewing machine mechanic if any of these parts fail.

The manual has good pictures of the bobbin spindle on page 11 (page 18 of the PDF). Singer has the manual on their support page: http://www.singerco.com/support/instruction-manuals . The direct link to the manual is http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/e06cb85928ace9753f1a7124f4a2df6168ffecf0.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Bobbin not not threading, what's the problem?


We don't know the make & model of your machine. Are you trying to wind the thread onto the bobbin?

FWIW, for ~$30 there is a stand-alone bobbin winder called "Sidewinder" that can be used to wind all your bobbins. It saves wear-n-tear on your machine and you can wind bobbins without removing the thread from your sewing machine. Just be sure to verify that your bobbins are compatible with the Sidewinder.

Available at JoAnn's, Walmart, Amazon...

Singer Tradition - my bobbin winder has stopped winding so I have to wind thread on manually.


Check on a standalone bobbin winder called "Sidewinder." Make sure it is compatible with your bobbins--some bobbins won't work on the Sidewinder. If it is compatible, then for ~$30 you can wind all your bobbins. (I have one that is powered by battery or by electricity.)

Am unable to help with your machine but you can purchase a stand-alone bobbin winder called Sidewinder for about $30. Just be sure to verify that your machine bobbins will work on it. The one I have will use either a power cord or batteries. Great little machine because it saves wear-n-tear on the machine plus you can wind bobbins without unthreading the machine.

I think that the bobbin spindle is broke. When I pressed the plastic bobbin down, it cracked. I did this twice. When I viewed the spindle, there is a wire sticking out? Does this sound correct?


There is a standalone bobbin winder for ~$30, called the Sidewinder, available at the local fabric store and online that is very handy for winding bobbins. Of course, verify first that your machine bobbins will work as some will not.

Are you trying to disengage to wind a bobbin?

A quick, easy, and inexpensive fix is to pick up a stand-alone bobbin winder (one brand is called Sidewinder). Just verify first that your bobbins will work on it. You can usually find it at the chain fabric stores or look online.

The bobbin case went ajar while sewing blue jean fabric. I cant figure out to put it back in. Your help is very much appreciated :


Hi Debbie,
This type bobbin case can be a pain to get back in. On photo #1, at the top left you see a silver piece (circled in red) with a rectangular hole in it (circled in green)...take a flat head screw driver and insert it into the slot then twist to the right so the little bar/flange (circled in blue) will twist to the left past the bobbin well wall (marked in neon green). Photo #2 Now the bar/flange (marked in blue) should be on top of the bobbin well wall (marked in neon green). Now set the bobbin case in the bobbin well (marked in pink). Photo #3 as you set the black bobbin case in, kind of angle the flat part that is marked by the orange X so that it will begin to underneath the bar/flange with large orange circle. It won't go in all the way but just start it and then set the rest of the case down in the well. Now twist the entire black case to the right and the flat black are marked with the orange (X) should slide underneath the bar/flange marked with orange circle. The flat piece marked with a purple (X) should be sitting in the area marked with an (X) in the bobbin well. Now take your screwdriver and stick it in the rectangular box and twist it back so the silver piece marked in blue with go back over the edge of the black bobbin case to help hold it in. Hope you can understand my instructions and good luck!
