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.

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.)

Bobbin winder not winding cotton on spool a part has fallen in side machine how do l take casing off Janome 480 quilter thank you


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.

The bobbin winder on my Elna Carina will not turn when I try to wind the bobbin. Is this something I can work with or do I need to take it to my repair shop where it will not be a quick return.


You can always check on a standalone bobbin winder (like the Sidewinder) available at most fabric stores like JoAnn's or online for ~$30. It's always nice to have anyway because it saves wear-n-tear on your machine and can be used without unthreading your machine. Just be sure to confirm that your machine's bobbins will work as some do not, ie some Singer models...

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.

Bobbin winder suddenly wont work. Bobbin won't turn in winding position despite correct threading. Just doesn't seem to engage, I hear a rubbing kind of sound. Can you help me to fix it?


Well, I could, but it's hardly worth it, and here's why. It sounds to me like you have snapped a belt, and that can be replaced.

However, you can also purchase a bobbin winder that does a much better job anyway for under $25! You can order online from WalMart, and if you have it delivered to one of their stores or to a FedEx facility (they'll be listed in your area during ordering), the shipping is free. My favorite is Simplicity. Here's a link to that page: Walmart Simplicity SideWinder Bobbin Winder

Thread is clumping underneath


Unfortunately, the machine's timing may have been adversely affected during the jam and removal of the fabric. Here's something that may resolve the issue if it is not timing-related:

Install a brand new needle.
Remove all the thread from the machine.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the top thread!
Rethread from the beginning and verify the thread path is correct.
If you have a smoothly-wound bobbin, try that. (A bobbin that you describe will contribute to sewing issues.)
Install and thread the bobbin--confirm the bobbin is spinning the right direction in the bobbin case.
Re-test your machine.

If you are having issues with the bobbin not winding smoothly, there are standalone bobbin winders for about $30 on the market (local JoAnn's or on the internet) called Sidewinder. Confirm that your machine bobbins will work (there are a few machines that won't, I think Singer). This is a very good accessory to have since you can wind bobbins without having to unthread the machine and also saves wear & tear on your machine.

My elna sewing machine bobbin won't spin on top to wind thread around. The fly wheel spins though...I've been putting thread on the bobbins by hand.


If the fly wheel is going around then the clutch isn't disengaged to wind the bobbin, you need to pull out the flywheel on your model to disengage the clutch for bobbin winding.

tally_girl_59.jpg
Take thread from thread spool across to bobbin winder thread guide, then back to bobbin and thread the tail through the hole on top of the bobbin. Place bobbin onto spindle on top of machine and then push it against the stop to engage the bobbin winding motor. HOld the thread tail up and start winding slowly until the bobbin core has been covered including the starting point. Stop and trim off the thread tail with scissors. COntinue winding bobbin and give the thread a nudge if needed to wind evening top middle and bottom of the bobbin. A good smooth wind is important. Also don't wind at full speed and keep an eye on the thread reel that the thread is coming off, you don't want it bouncing around as this will **** the thread and stretch then relax it affecting your bobbin wind.

Obviously if you know this and the bobbin winding mechanisim is just not working, then it will need a service/replacement by an Elna repair person.
