Spool is bouncing on spool pin

I was sewing and everything was fine, but then all of a sudden the spool started bouncing and the thread was spinning around the spool pin. I then got a "birdsnest" of bobbin thread on the bottom. I have tried rethreading both the spool and bobbin. I have tried other spools and bobbins. Everything causes the same problem. I am not an expert sewer and not a novice either, but have never encountered this problem before. Any suggestions?

Get a stand alone spool holder, sometimes the spool pins arent high enough to support the thread or you can try a thread sock

The spool pin on my Brother VX1010 doesn't come up so I can't put a spool of thread on it.


Difficult to say. Some machines have a spool pin that can be pushed down for storage or transport. Your machine may have this ability. Or, perhaps someone has pushed the pin down accidentally. If you can use a needlenose plier to grab the tip and pull up, the spool pin may be fixed. If there is any part of the spool pin still projecting above the machine, you can cut a length of plastic drinking straw and fit it over the spool pin to hold your thread spool. Some sewists use a standalone thread holder (available multiple sites online, etc) that sets on the table behind the sewing machine or some people will throw the thread into a jar and set it behind the machine.

How to change my spool pin


Some spool pins pull out, others have skrew threads on the bottom, yet others need to have the spool casing removed. Depends on your sewing machine.

Search the internet for:

Make + Model + the word "spool pin"

or contact manufacturer support.

When trying to load the bobbin with thread, only top half threads and is tangled. Has worked great till now.


Difficult to assess without a make & model.

The machine has a tensioner for the bobbin winder. Make sure that you are threading that tensioner before taking it to the bobbin winder. Also, sometimes the thread should make a complete loop around that tensioner (consult your owner's manual). Check that the thread spool is spinning the correct direction--most often the thread spool turns counter-clockwise on the spool pin. Running the thread the wrong direction could cause thread kinks or the thread plies to separate. Slow down the speed that you wind the bobbin. Fast speeds will cause the thread to stretch. Plus, if something goes haywire, you won't have a bobbin bouncing or thread flying all over the sewing room before you can stop the machine. Frequently, the bobbin will fill more in one area of the bobbin. You can gently guide the thread by pushing it up or down lightly with a pencil tip or other object to even the thread distribution on the bobbin.

Twin needle


Hello

Install the second spool pin.
Place the two spools on the spools pins, one on each spool pin.Make sure that the spools are spinning toward each other.
Thread as for single needle.
Thread each needle from a different spool.
Caution: Make sure that the stitch width is not wide than the twin needle maximum swing. Check that the needles will not hit the throat plate as they swing from left to right and back again on stitches with width.

Happy twin needling

Sewing machine design


It sounds like the spool cap is broken or defective. It should fit snugly on the spool pin. If it is constantly falling off, then try finding a replacement. The horizontal spool pin design helps the machine pull the thread off the spool because the thread spool does not need to spin. The added pressure of spinning a thread spool contributes to tension issues (especially if you are using large thread spools that are so common now days).

On new machines, frequently the thread cutter is on the back of the presser foot lifter.

The thread guide above the needle is usually threaded from the left side because the thread tends to be pulled toward the right.

Unfortunately, what you are experiencing are pretty much common functions with most newer sewing machines, so even changing machines may not result in any greater degree of satisfaction.

Top thread unravelling


Turn your spool around. You've got the little thread catch on the spool on the side it unspools from. Make sure it's the other direction.

Beeps several times and stops sewing.


I had the same problem. Through trial and error, I found the problem was with the thread tension. Usually the thread became wrapped around the spool holder as it was coming off the spool. As you continue to press the pedal, tension is created. When you release the pedal, some slack develops in the threading process and you are able to sew a few more stitches before the beeping starts again. If the thread is caught on the spool holder, simple re-thread the machine.That generally works for me. Also you can try to push to spool holder in as close as possible to the spool pin to alleviate any gaps. If the beeping continues to happen, place you thread in a cup behind the machine and thread as usual. You can also purchase an inexpensive thread holder. I made one out of a wood block and other odds and ends found around the house. Good Luck!

Thread constantly wraps around spool pin


Cut a round curcle of fabric the size of the spool from a piece of felt. Put a hole in the middle and put it under the spool of thread. If this does not work you can purchase a small net that fits over the spool. It is designed to keep the thread from coming off the spool except for being pulled through naturally.
Hope this works.
