Re: threading a sewing machine

What do you mean you are unable to pull the bobbin thread through, elaboration would help solve the problem...
I suspect I'm having the same problem with you if it's anything to do with the top thread looping around in the bobbin holder.

Damn machine!

Re: threading a sewing machine

Most janome's have diagram's on the inside of them check your diagrams and manuals carefully to make sure you have the bobbin and thread going the right way. I was having the same prop with the bobbin and I have no manual (still trying to source one for the mystyle 20). After much frustration with untangling, I worked out my bobbin was in back to front/upside down.

Janome 11000 skipped stitches if any are even made at all

Skipped stitches sometimes occur if the machine is incorrectly threaded. Remove the thread and re-thread from the beginning (first RAISE the presser foot so the thread will seat in the tension disk).
Confirm that the thread follows the correct pathway (consult manual).
Try installing a brand-new needle.
Make sure the needle, thread, and fabric are compatible.

All About Needles

If it continues to not pull up the bobbin thread, the needle/hook could be out of time. May require service.

My Janome keeps breaking its thread on both of my machines-Help!

Check that the needle is in the right way - usually with the flat side away from you, but check your manual. While you have the manual out check that the bobbin is turning the right way too. Hope you fix it

First - check to be sure you have the machine threaded correctly - if the upper thread path is wrong it will break the thread every time you try to sew.

Hello dear

have you tried changing the needle?
have you tried adjusting the top thread tension?
it might be the needle and the thread are not compatable,, the needle may be to light for the thread.
if the suggestions don't help, sew on the sewing machine till it makes the loop and then stop the machine and take it to the repair man and let him see the loop and then ask him why it's making the loop.

I want to sell my 1991 New Home memory Craft 8000 sewing machine

A good place to see what machines are selling for is Ebay. That's where I sold a sewing machine and an embroidery machine.

It helps to know your product and machine embroidery lingo.

What are cassettes? Floppy disks? These make the machine borderline obsolete.

Memory cards are still around, but most EM now have USB connectivity or USB flash drives.

Satin thread? Embroidery machines use Rayon or Polyester embroidery thread.

Having had the machine recently serviced is also a plus.
