The singer 221 needs to be threaded with the flat side of the needle on the left side. The thread passes through the eye of the needle from right to left. If this does not solve your problem it may be out of time. You can remove the needle plate and watch the hook it should pass above the eye of the needle as you turn the handwheel towards you. First you need to make sure the needle is at the correct height before adjusting the timing on the lower shaft. You may want to take this in for service if your timing is off.

I just had this problem, too - if you have the manual, check out page 15. If you have removed the throat plate, you need to make sure that the position finger on the bobbin case base enters a notch on the underside of the throat plate. Fixed my problem right away.

Needle will not pick up the bobbin thread.


Could the needle be inserted incorrectly? Typically, the flat of the needle shank goes to the back of the machine. Are the needles the correct type for your machine?

Bought a featherlite 221 will not pick up bobbin thread have no manaul so am i threading it correctly or putting in needle wrong the machine is like new


I see Singer Featherweight Featherlite manuals, not a Featherlite as a stand-alone model name. For the Featherweight 221 manual try here: http://www.singerco.com/accessories/manuals.html and enter the model 221. Alternative site: http://www.singer-featherweight.com/ with the direct link to the manual here: http://www.singer-featherweight.com/sitetwopages/singfea.pdf .

I hope this helps.

Bobbin won't pick up


the problem is, your needle so short, adjust your needle bar down, so that the thread of your bobbin will come out.

Inserting needle on old singer machine


Hi Terry--

If your machine is 40-50 years old, it might be a Singer Featherweight portable. (If it is, you have one of the very best machines ever made!) On the Featherweights, the flat of the needle faces left (and the needle is threaded from right to left). The bobbin goes in a bobbin case; you'll see a small notch when you look down on the bobbin in the case. That's where the thread goes. I'll email you direct with more information.

Bobbin Thread won't come through


Thread the machine and the bobbin. Turn the handwheel towards you with your right hand and hold the the top thread in your left hand pulling slightly to the back of the machine. When the needle goes into the needle plate keep turning the handwheel untill the needle picks up the bottom thread and by pulling the top thread you shold be able to pull the botoom thread through the needle plate.

Practise makes perfect.
