SOURCE: thread constantly wraps around spool pin

Cut a round curcle of fabric the size of the spool from a piece of felt. Put a hole in the middle and put it under the spool of thread. If this does not work you can purchase a small net that fits over the spool. It is designed to keep the thread from coming off the spool except for being pulled through naturally.
Hope this works.

SOURCE: spool pin

Spool pin is usually on the top Right hand side of the machine. It is sometimes not clearly visible (it looks like a small metal rod protuding out, but not long enough to hold your thread). You will have to pull it up so that it extended and then you can use it.

SOURCE: Lost Spool pin and cap for QuikStitch SP-402

Welcome to FixYa. If you have a spool stand, that might work as long as you can thread the machine properly (give it a try!). When the thread is placed on the machine's spool pin, the spool cap keeps the thread in place and helps the thread unwind evenly - so if you are using a spool pin, you really do need a spool cap.

If the spool stand works, you are good to go. If you need to order replacement parts, I've provided a link the manufacturer's website. From there, you can contact customer support and find out if parts are available. If you can't order replacement parts, ask customer service if the machine is compatible with another brand. Another option would be to buy a spool pin and cap at a sewing machine dealer. Take the machine with you and and make sure the parts fit before you buy them.

Here's the link to the site I mentioned:

SOURCE: How do I replace a broken spool pin on the Brother

If the spool pops in, you may be able to find a replacement where sewing machine parts are sold.

If it was a molded to a platform, a thread stand may be a less expensive method to use. You can find a single cone thread stand with sewing notions.

How to change the thread spool pin on babylock model esp


Depends. Some spool pins simply push in and snap in place, but as many machine brands existing, there are probably double the different spool pins available...

I have a brother xl5012 and would like to change the spool pin..not sure if its broken? the one on top is silver and the spare is plastic..not sure what to do..the manual has no answers.. thank you


On most machines, the spool pin simply screws into a threaded hole. If it was welded on or attached in some other permanent way, changing it may need a service visit. Brother has one of the very best service departments of any company I know. But try to unscrew the old one.. it might be stuck, a drop of penetrating oil, or maybe some pliers, might assist. If it comes out, a new one should screw in easily enough, so long as it matches the size of the hole and the threading.

How to remove broken spool pin part in my Singer 6038 to install new one?


Take the machine into a repair shop. You won't have all the tools or the parts to make the repair properly.

I have a singer featherweight 11 117 model and the spool pin snapped. Where can I get a replacement?


First of all, it's likely at this point that you think your machine is unusable without it, but you're wrong. I have four Singer high-end sewing and embroidery machines, and it has been years since I used their spool pins.

Simply put a coffee cup or--my favorite--a lidless pint Mason Jar at the back of your sewing machine towards the right (away from the fabric side), bend the thread (don't wind the thread) around the remains of the spool pin to use it as a thread guide, and then thread the way you usually do, and you are in business!

Now, to address the replacement issue, there are several places where you can order a new one. Do a search on eBay for "Singer Featherweight Spool Pin" and a number of listings will come up. Don't put in your model number in the search box. If you see that a dealer is featuring one for a Featherweight, but not for your model, don't hesitate to use the "Ask a Question" option in a listing; these are generally quite knowledgeable dealers who can order one for you. Also Jenny's Sewing Studio and Sewing Parts Online either have them in stock or can order them for you. It appears that they are quite inexpensive too!

Twin needle


Hello

Install the second spool pin.
Place the two spools on the spools pins, one on each spool pin.Make sure that the spools are spinning toward each other.
Thread as for single needle.
Thread each needle from a different spool.
Caution: Make sure that the stitch width is not wide than the twin needle maximum swing. Check that the needles will not hit the throat plate as they swing from left to right and back again on stitches with width.

Happy twin needling

Spool pin not come up


You may have to take the machine apart to get the spool pin. Shake the machine to see if it is loose inside. If you can see the top of the pin a very very strong rare earth magnet may be able to retrieve it from the outside. If the pin is not causing problems inside the machine you can use a thread stand or install another spool pin on the outside of the machine with a pop rivet gun.

I want to know how to fix thread from top to needle


Always start from the thread spool pin, install your thread spool to the spool pin & put on the spool holder, pull end of thread to go thru the top thread guide then down to the tension disc(follow the arrow pointer if there is),up to the thread take up lever arm from left to right and down to the needle thru the needle clam guide(just below its needle clam screw)then enter the needle eye from front to back. Turn your hand wheel towards you to bring needle bar down into the bobbin case, keep turning till needle comes fully up, pull out your top thread end & this should bring up the bobbin thread then you be ready to sew.

THREAD CARTRIDGE WONT LOCK IN PLACE


Hi - I'm sorry you have been waiting for an answer to your problem. Can you tell me whether this was first time you used the cartrige, or has it been working up until now? Unfortunately, the cartridges tend to break fairly easily.
To determine whether your cartridge is broken, take out the thread and thread it again. The cartridge won't lock-in unless your presser foot is up and your needle is raised to its hightest position (needle threaders are designed to prevent damage, so they often won't work if the parts of your machine are not positioned properly for threading).  
If the cartidge still won't engage, check the page in your manual that describes the parts that came with your machine - you should see a picture of a spool pin. Although the spool pin is designed to accommodate spools of thread that don't fit in your cartrige, you can use the spool pin all the time. Your manual describes how to install the spool pin.
Fortunately, you can purchase spool pins and replacement cartridges from several online sources, including eBay, and some Babylock Dealers sell them (the Babylock and Brother cartidges are interchangeable). I have the same machine, and I always keep an extra cartridge around. I can thread the extra spool while the other is sewing. When the machine stops for a color change, I just insert the extra cartridge with the next color, then thread up the empty cartridge for the next color. Speeds up your embroidery alot. 
On Google, type in Brother Thread Cassette - you'll get lots of hits, and you should be able to find a cartridge for about $10.00.
If you have and other readers have time to rate my answer (good or bad), your rating helps me determine whether I understand your problem.
If you have more details about your problem or have additional questions, please feel free to comment. I can send you the instructions for threading the cartridge and installing the spool pin if your manual is missing. Just submit a comment - and I'll help anyway I can.
Cheers, Ginny

Broken plastic part within which thread spool pin is inserted


You can search for:

Make Model parts diagram

to see what replacement parts are available.

If not, you can probably devise something to improvise. I've used plastic drinking straws as spool pins, or plastic chop sticks.

Welcome to FixYa. If you have a spool stand, that might work as long as you can thread the machine properly (give it a try!). When the thread is placed on the machine's spool pin, the spool cap keeps the thread in place and helps the thread unwind evenly - so if you are using a spool pin, you really do need a spool cap.

If the spool stand works, you are good to go. If you need to order replacement parts, I've provided a link the manufacturer's website. From there, you can contact customer support and find out if parts are available. If you can't order replacement parts, ask customer service if the machine is compatible with another brand.
