    I need to know what type and size needle to buy to use with this 4oz bonded nylon thread which is to be used for upholstery material to make a bed cushion. The needles I have a way too small and was told I would have to have a special needle for this thread

    Thank you for the suggestion about size of needle. Hubby found that info somewhere else and we did just that. Machine worked fine for at least 85% of my project and then another issue developed. The thread started to bunch up and then the needle bent. Apparently this scratched the hook that pulls the thread from the bobbin, this problem increased to the point where I no longer could use the machine. Acted like the timing was off. Found a great sewing center that allowed me to not only bring the machine for them to check it but also set me up with one of their Bernina machines so I could continue my project. The lady showed my husband what the problem was and how to fix it so it would not cost us any money. Hubby did just that and now the machine seems to be working fine. Another problem we encountered was the thread we were using. It is an upholstery thread and it would not even work on their Bernina machine, which is one of the top of the line machines. Changed to regular 100% polyester, and voila, the sewing became so much easier. Boy, so much learned in the last few days. I just felt like a fish out of water since it has been probably 30 plus years since I last sewed anything other than mending or hemming by hand. Thank you all for your input

Are you inserting the needle fully into clamp? You may have a bad lot of needles that werent straight. Try sewing by hand with machine to see exactly where and when needle breaks, then you might be able to solve problem.

I had the same problem with my Shark Euro Pro 7133. My problem was in threading the upper thread. The manual does not quite explain so I had to figure this out the hard way.

In threading the upper thread . the thread first goes down from the spool througt a groove. When it comes up it must catch a silver lever that moves up and down before moving it down againPlease let me know whether this helps.

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 can't get the bottom thread to come up with the needle on my euro-pro shark intelli-sew


try this
make sure there is a 3-5 inch tail on bobbin thread
make sure there is a 3-5 inch tail on top thread, then hold the top thread tail with your fingers (away from the needle) & with your other hand turn the hand wheel manually on the right side of the sewing machine,, slowly letting down the needle down into the bobbin area & see if the bobbin thread will pick up this way

The needle will not go down all the way, so it dosent sew on my euro pro, 7133 sewing machina


Check the manual to be sure the needle is installed correctly, this is usually with the flat side of the shank facing the back of the sewing machine.

Make sure the needle is not bent.

Also, there may be thread tangled in the bobbin area. Open the needle plate and bobbin; clean away any lint or thread that has accumulated there.

If this does not resolve the issue, the machine will need to be serviced/repaired by a sewing machine tech.

Won't catch bobbin thread


In order to see whether or not my euro-pro 9110 had a timing issue, the service rep had me change out the needle (making sure I was using anything but a Singer brand needle--they do not work in these machines). I re-threaded the needle, took out the bobbin casing and the plastic ring encasing the bobbin, then lowered the needle to see if the hook on the metal ring holding the bobbin actually catches the thread on its own. If it doesn't catch, it's a timing issue and needs repair. They can walk you through this process of troubleshooting and set up repair if need.
