Please help I have a singer 140 imperial anniversary edition model 7050 sewing machine, I cannot figure out how to wind the bobbin desperate!! Thank you!


Well, the good news is you can download your user's manual free if you go to the Singer Sewing Machine site. Just select Support, and there is an Instruction Manual option. Enter the model number, 7050, and it is pictured and explained there, beginning on page 15.

You have a Touch 'n Sew slant needle machine, which means you can buy additional feet, as long as they are slant needle ones, and they're very widely available.

Another good feature is those machine wind the bobbin right in place. I have had several of these machines for many years, and frankly, it's my favorite, most trouble-free method.

Bobbins are also widely available; however, your bobbin is available with or without a center button. Yours HAS the center button.

How do I thread the nedle


the easiest way for me to thread a needle is: 1. check to see which direction the needle eye is facing... some machines had the eye so you threaded it from the side... nowadays it is usually from the front... the opening facing you when you sit in front of it. 2. wet the end of the thread-about a half inch or so.. then take very sharp scissors and cut the very end of the thread off, but leaving some of the wet tip there... the moisture keeps the thread from unraveling as it goes through the needle eye. 3. now carefully slide the thread end through the eye. 4. Once it is through, pull at least 8 inches of the thread through (so it doesn't pull back through the needle when it first starts sewing the fabric)

That is your thread cutter. Depending on what machine you have, whether it is automatic thread cutter on an arm or just a manual one. If it is automatic, pop the cover off on the left top of machine next to the bobbin area. The arm should be seen there. It moves like an elbow. Push your thread cutter (scissor button) and watch how it works to see if it has come off the post. If you don't have automatic thread cutter, perhaps the thread cutter is not pushed all the way back in its place. The thread cutter looks like a triangular piece of flat razor. It could be sticking out too far or perhaps bent. I have fixed mine before, but be careful.

Needle up down moves the embroider


It's okay - it's supposed to do that! The Needle Down button has a different function when you are in Embroidery mode i.e. you have the emb. unit attached.
It moves the emb. arm forward for two reasons: so you can cut top-side jump stitches more easily between colour changes (you touch the button again and the emb. arm returns to under the needle so you can finish the design); and secondly so you can "park" the embroidery unit when you are finished. You can then turn the machine off, remove the emb. unit and replace it in the carry case. If you DON'T do this, the emb. arm is not in the right position to fit into the moulded carry case properly.

The Broken Thread message usually means that it has started the colour, but the thread has been pulled down underneath instead of making nice locked stitches. Hold onto the thread end until the machine has stopped and beeped for you to cut the thread. This usually solves that problem. Sometimes the thread gets pulled out of your hand so just back up the stitches a few and start over, holding the thread more tightly. Don't tug on the thread - just keep a firm grip.

Designer 1s often cut the bobbin thread too short so that it can't make those nice locked stitches when it starts. You need to take off the hoop, open up the bobbin cover and use your stylus, the tip of a pair of scissors, tweezers (whatever is to hand) to pull the bobbin thread out a little. Instead of cutting it on the bobbin thread cutter, just let it hang outside by 1/8" or so. That way you can be sure there is enough bobbin thread available for the stitch to lock. Don't use the scissors button on the machine after every colour change. Sure, it makes for a tidier back of the embroidery with less work for you afterwards, but if it means you are taking the hoop and bobbin cover off after every colour change then it is not worth it in time-saving.
If your machine is doing this - cutting the bobbin thread too short - mention it to your tech. when you machine goes in for its next service. He may be able to tweak the bobbin cutter so it does not cut so close.
