My singer pixie plus will not pick up the bobbin thread. how do i fix this.


Install a brand new needle and verify the machine is threaded correctly. Also, use the correct needle for the machine, thread and fabric. If that doesn't help, then the machine is probably out of time and needs service.

How to thread childs singer zig zag sewing machine


You didn't give the model name for the machine; however, if it's a Pixie or Pixie Plus, you can download the user's manual that shows you how to thread it and wind a bobbin from the Singer Sewing Machine site. The number listed above your question is not a legitimate model number; it might be a serial number.

Hi I just purchased a Singer Heavy Duty machine from Sewing USA and my upper thread has a problem picking up the bobbin thread, it won't pick up the thread from underneath at all. Usuall it winds...


Generally, this is because the needle is either inserted incorrectly or because it's bent. Even if it doesn't look bent, it can be ever so slightly that you can't even see it with the naked eye. See if changing the needle corrects the problem, and be sure to insert the needle with the flat side of the shaft facing away from you.

Good luck, Linda!

Can't get the needle thread to loop over the bobbin thread. The bobbin thread is already thru the hole.


You only need the thread to loop over the bobbin thread to bring up the thread when you are threading the machine. If, you mean it is not sewing after threading then I need more information.

Bobbin thread will not stitch.


Have you had the machine serviced since you purchased it? This is something that should be done at least once a year.

Take the machine to a certified Singer dealer and explain what is happening. There may or may not be something that needs to be adjusted.

Your warranty is still in effect, but is now limited. Attempting to repair it yourself or having someone who is not a Singer dealer repair it will invalidate the remaining warranty.

I purchased singer bobbins to use in my singer 5050. I thread the machine and bobbin per manual instructions, but when sewing, the thread severely bunchens and knots up on the bottom side of the item I'm...


"Birdnesting" occurs when there is no tension on the needle thread to pull the bobbin thread. This is easily corrected by rethreading the machine, following the threading path carefully and making sure the thread is fully engaged in the tension mechanism.
