I have a Euro Pro Shark Automatic. It works perfectly as a rule. I am trying to sew heavier material than usual - new inserts for my exterior sling chairs. The thread is heavier nylon and it catches on...


Most domestic sewing machines will not handle heavier thread than the standard 50 weight. I'd suggest you go back to regular polyester sewing thread and use a 110 or 120 size needle to cope with the heavier fabric. Sew slowly and give it some help on the flywheel when crossing a seam allowance. Maybe stitch each seam twice, with a 1mm gap between to give it strength.

If you need to use the heavier thread to do the job then you will probably need an industrial sewing machine that can handle that grade of fabric and thread. Something like a Singer 20U machine in a table with seperate motor drive.

Fabrics like Canvas, ticking and PVC for exterior items are generally going to be beyond the functionality of a domestic machine and you can damage the machine, particularly the timing by trying.

I do not have a problem with the machine. I am curious about the plate numbers. On an american sewing machine, the plate the fabric feeds through, normal have 1/4, 5/8, etc. On the Euro Pro Denim Model ...


So an American machine has imperial seam guides on the needle plate.

But the Euro Pro would be European and in metric so it has seam guides in metric widths, i.e. millimetres. 10 will be 10 millimetres, or 1 centimetre, 16 mm, 22mm.

A normal seam in metric is 15mm - in your land 5/8", the two are not quite the same but pretty close. This link http://convert.french-property.co.uk/ gives you a converter between the two systems.

A 1/4" is your standard piecing seam for the quilters and this is why many Australian quilters will buy a 1/4" foot so they can guide the fabric along the foot edge to get nice standard seams.

So you could break out some masking tape and a metric/imperial ruler and measure from the needle to the right and put a strip of tape onto your needle plate to mark your 5/8" dimension you are used to. Or use the 16mm seam marking which is very close anyway.

Hope this helps.

Hi, I got my Euro-pro 32-stitch sewing machine almost 2-1/2 years back from XS-cargo store in Brampton Ontario. I use it frequently for day to day chores. Since last month, it is not sewing. I rolls but...


Be sure to check your manual about your threading and that you have a fresh needle inserted correctly. Sometimes we think that it is but the thread is twisted or something else really silly.

Tension problems


start with the bottom- should allow thread to pass freely with slight tension when dangled from the thread. Tiny screw on the bobbin case turned clockwise tightens tension. Next, check upper tension. Thread should pull through with foot down, with good tension. Stitch should 'lock inside the fabric(use two pieces of fabric and make a seam, thread from both top and bottom should be visible when you open the seam.

My europro x machine: problem w/upper thread coming out through needle


Hi. You're probably not pulling enough thread through the needle before you start to sew. The tails for the upper and bobbin threads should be at least 3 inches long when you start the seam. Hold them for the first few stitches to avoid making birds nests under the fabric.
Hope this helps!

Can't get thread tension right on my Euro-Pro 7130


the top seam is actually the bobbin thread. dots on the underside means that the top tension is too tight. you may have a piece of thread or something gummy caught between the upper tension disks.

Needle will not pick up bobbin threat


Try flipping the bobbin spool so the thread comes off in the other direction.
Forcing means that the needle has been jammed against the sewing plate ant the needle is now out of timing with the bobbin pickup.

Needle will not pick up bobbin threat


I had the exact same problem. The timing is off. You can actually fix this yourself all you need is an allen wrench. If you look at the rod the needle is inserted into and follow it up to about 2 inches below the top of the machine there should be a clamp. use the allan wrench to loosen the clamp and adjust the needle height. I used this website as a guide to getting the timing correct. http://www.sewusa.com/Sewing_Machine_Repair/Repair_Pictures/timing1.gif

now if only I could figure out why my thread keeps getting jammed under the bobbin!
