This can be caused by incorrect bobbin tension or the bobbin is in backwards. Take out the bobbin and put it in according to the instructions for your Singer. If you still have the same problem try tightening the bobbin tension. Please ask if you have any questions.

Here's how you set the timing od the Machine alright:
1. Take the side plate off, take the needle plate off.
2. Take the presser foot off, and put a new needle in the machine. 3. Make sure that the needle is in the lowest position and look at the needle bar for the two timing lines. Locate the top line.
4. Then, turn the handwheel toward you until the top line is where the bottom line was.
At this point, the tip of the hook should be directly in the scarf of the needle.
This should set the timing of the machine perfect....

My machine is skipping stiches it seems its not picking up from the bobbin


Install a brand new needle and confirm it is inserted with the flat side facing the proper direction.. A bent, damaged needle will sometimes cause skipped stitches or even needle strikes inside the machine. A new needle is the least expensive cure for a lot of sewing machine problems. The needle should be changed about every 8 hours of sewing or at least when starting a new project.

Remove the top thread. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Verify the thread path is correct.

Sometimes, skipped stitches will occur if the needle, thread, and fabric are incompatible. Be sure to use the correct needle for your project. Use a good quality thread--AVOID old or bargain bin thread!

If the machine continues to skip stitches, then it may be out of time. Search for sewing machine timing or take it for service.

Adjusting the stitches on White sewing machine 425


Adjusting stitches how? Are the stitches too short, too long, is the tension off, are there loops of thread accumulating (bird nests), thread pulls out of the fabric, is the top thread not picking up the bobbin thread????

Wont pickup bobbin thread when sewing.


Make sure you are using a brand new needle. Bent/damaged/dull needles frequently will fail to pick up the thread.

If it continues to skip stitches, it most likely has a needle/hook timing issue--the needle arrives at the bobbin at the wrong time to intercept the bobbin thread.

There are web sites and videos available that discuss sewing machine timing, or you can take it for service.

check for problems in the bobbin winding, ( in the wrong way so that the thread is not coming out correctly)

Both upper and lower are threaded, so why when i sew the stitches arent stitching?


Check that the lower thread carrier is threaded correctly. If you have managed to put the bobbin into the holder facing the wrong way the sewing mechanism won't be able to pick up the thread, and thus will fail to sew.

Machine won't stitch


If by "won't stitch" you mean that the top thread will not pick up the bottom thread, make sure you have the needle threaded properly. If the machine is a top loading bobbin, the thread goes in the needle from front to back. Same if it's a side loading bobbin (bobbin faces you as you sew). If it's a front loading bobbin (bobbin faces left of machine), the thread goes in the needle from left to right.
