Needle not picking up bobbin thread


Install a brand new needle. Try a different kind of thread--AVOID old or bargain bin threads!
If that doesn't fix the problem, most likely the machine is out of time and needs to be serviced.

The bobbin thread when sewing has little loops


You do not have the tension on your machine set correctly. That is leaving the bobbin thread too loose, hence the loops you are seeing. What kind of machine do you have? I can tell you where the tension is located. Also, tell me what kind of fabric you are trying to sew. FIRST JUST SET IT BACK TO THE FACTORY DEFAULT. When you are moving the machine it is easy to accidentally hit the tension and change it. Here is a picture of what a tension knob looks like. Good luck.

Thread keeps bursting, tension is fine


Make sure you are using quality thread. Old, cheap or defective thread. Also, make sure the bobbin contains the same kind of thread.

I\'m not sure what you mean by "reel", but if you are referring to the spool pin which holds your thread, then you don\'t really have to have that. I use a spool stand instead. Then I can use any kind of thread without having to buy the little bitty spools. This is just an example of one style of thread holder. It is by far the cheapest way to replace a missing thread pin.

Some people also use a simple cup, and drop the thread inside, so that it doesn\'t unroll all over the work surface. Then thread the machine normally. If the thread needs to be directed to the first spot, a binder clip, attached to the handle of your machine, works really well as an extra "eye" to put the thread through, and secures it quite well.

Trying to quilt on my Hinterberg. First the thread kept breaking. Made some tension adjustments, now I am skipping stitches


possible problems
1) too thick for the feed dog to move the fabric forward need; lighter tension
2) are the upper and lower threads the same kind of thread?
3) is the thread feeding properly from above? sometimes the spool can snag the thread causing the tension to jump and skip stitches

way--and that the needle is the correct one for the fabric being
sewed--example--cotton fabric take one kind of needle and stretch

if the bobbin and bobbin case have to be inserted togeather,,
make sure that the bobbin case is secure and snug in the machine

Thread keeps breaking


Have you checked any edge the thread might contact for knicks which should be files or sanded down? Also, I had to replace my bobbin case after a number of years as it had kind of stretched out and allowed my bobbin to pop around and consequently broke many threads.

Yet another stitch tension problem...


Thank you, thank you! I just tightened the screw on my bobbin case and that instantly fixed my thread tension problem. How on earth are you supposed to know about the little screw?! I thank you so much for the tip!
