It helps to pull through about 6-8" of thread through your needle. Pull your bobbin thread to the top of the fabric (see video below). Then wrap both the top and bottom threads around your left index finger and hold them while taking the first few stitches.

When you thread and then start up your machine to sew, for instance, a seam, there's one more step you have to take. After you have threaded, placed your fabric under the foot, and put your presser foot down, pull a length of thread--enough so you can grab, maybe 3" or 4"--pull the thread to the back of the machine and then hold it down for the first stitch or two. You see, when it starts to take the first stitch the upper thread pulls towards the machine, and if there's not enough left over, it will pull it right back though the needle! All you have to do to get around that is to make sure the end of the upper thread is being held down with your hand long enough to take the first stitch or two--then you can let it go.

Have a c-150 furtura ...i'm getting a bad stitch on the bobbin thread with both reg and embroidery stitching how do i fix this been in repair shop 3 times comes back with still bad stitch they use...


ANOTHER THING IS TO CHECK THE TENSION OF THE BOBBIN THREAD. MAKE SURE THE THREAD YOU ARE USING IS GOOD THREAD THAT DOESN'T PULL THE COTTON UP AND CAUSE A PUFF BALL ON THE NEEDLE. CHECK THE WAY YOU ARE LOADING THE TOP THREAD. ALWAYS DO THIS WHILE THE FOOT IS UP SO THAT YOU CAN CONTINUOUSLY GIVE TUGS THROUGH EACH OF THE GUIDES. THIS HAS TO BE LITTLE TENSION WITH NO SNAGS.

Thread coming out of eye of right needle on huskylock 910


Hi:

Are you sure it's coming out? Or is it breaking at the needle?

Try replacing the right needle and do a test stitch. If it still comes out of the needle... loosen that threads tension a little.

My needle keeps coming unthreaded. HELP please


1) Open the needle plate and bobbin case and make sure the tangled threads are removed.

2) Open the manual; read and follow every step.

3) Thread the machine with the presser foot up - this is often overlooked and causes loopy stitches that pull right out.

4) Make sure the bobbin in inserted so the bobbin thread is feeding from the bobbin spool in the correct direction and through the proper guides.

5) Take hold of the needle thread and lower, then raise the needle to pull the bobbin thread up through the needle plate. Take both threads under the presser foot and to the back of the machine.

6) When you come to the end of the stitching, make sure the take up lever is at it's highest position. This will keep the thread from coming out of the needle when you begin to sew.

I hope this will help and you will soon be sewing.

I can not keep the needle threaded. as soon as I start to sew the thread comes out. Please help


Hi. Never had this one happen to me, but be sure that you have at least 3 inches of thread pulled through the needle. If there isn't enough thread pulled through the needle, the first stitch can pull it out.

Let me know if this works, ok?

Zig zag drops stitches


clean hook area first, too much lint under the bobbin case can do this for sure. Also, if you are using a heavier thread use a lager needle, top stitch thread needs a heaver needle or larger eye needle . A size 100/16 regular or 90/14 top stitch needle can really help if using heavier thread.
