Question about Sewing Machines

1 Answer

I have been given a "vintage" Singer So-Fro model 4302 sewing machine and there does not appear to be a thread holder on the top of the machine. Can anyone give me any insight?

    the link didn't work, when you get on the site, go to search at top of page type in thread stands and it will bring up several thread stands to choose from, a thread stand is what I use for my sewing machines.

SOURCE: bobbin filling on Singer 626

The Singer 626 has a self-winding bobbin. You place the empty bobbin in the bobbin thingie (sorry for being so untechnical). On the left of the bobbin you will see a "lever" with a circular top on it (I think it is red-ish) Again, sorry for being so untechnical. Press the "lever" down. Thread your machine, thread the needle, wrap the excess thread from the needle around the knob that tightens the needle and holds it in place and press your foot down on the foot pedal. The bobbin will automatically wind as you hold the foot pedal down. Do not wind the thread onto the bobbin past the outer white line.

SOURCE: I have a Singer Touch N Sew Model 636. The

I had a Golden Touch 'N Sew many years ago and as the machine aged and parts became worn, step 4 of this bobbin winding diagram started to become a problem and I had to sometimes try several times before the "tabs" would release. If they did not release, the machine "thought" it was still winding the bobbin and would not sew.

You can download a manual for $10 at www.sewingmanuals.com and it should help you. A couple of suggestions though, is your needle inserted correctly? Flat side facing the rear of the machine, fresh needle? Threaded correctly on top and bobbin area? Is your thread good not too old and the same type in bobbin and top? Did you leave a long enough tail in the bobbin thread? 3-4 inches which you hold with your left hand. Is the thread in the bobbin unwinding the right way? Are you turning the handwheel towards you, not away from you at least two revolutions or until you see the thread loop? Try these suggestions, and I am sure one will work unless your timing is off and it needs professional service.

How to fix tension on a singer sewing machine 5050


Please expand your explanation of what exactly the machine is or is not doing. We can't begin to help without more information.

HINT: remove the top thread from the machine. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning.

    Need a singer sew mate thread holder


    Search the internet for:

    Make + Model + the word "Parts"

    If unsuccessful, a spool pin can be made using a small wooden dowel, a cut off plastic knitting needle, or taking a pin off a donor machine, or a variety of other items. There are also standalone thread stands that can be purchased that will set on the table behind your machine.
