Why does the bobbin keep showing up on top of the embroidery? I have changed the bobbin, I have rethreaded the top thread, I have changed the needle, I have cleaned the bobbin area. How else can the...


Loosen the top tension a little or tighten the bobbin tension ever so slightly. If that fails you can always color the bobbin threads with a magic marker the same color as the embroidery thread. You might go to Superior Thread's web site and try some prewound bobbins. They are worth their weight in gold. Dr. Bob knows all about all kinds of thread and is very good about answering questions. I think some of his Thread University videos are available too.

A blunt needle can also cause this. Try pulling a button thread or any slightly thicker thread through all the tension springs, perhaps you have a blockage somewhere.

I need to know how to thread my Viking Husqvarna Huskylock 905/910 This is a serger sewing machine and very difficult to thread. I have had this machine for quite a while and have not had the opportunity...


You have a great machine. These are hard to thread but once you have mastered it, you'll have many years of great use. The owner's manual has instructions, as well as the inside door of the machine (the door that folds down on the front bottom part of the machine. However, you might want to follow-up with your local authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer. Most are eager to help you even if you didn't purchase the machine from them. Some even have classes on using the serger. You might try several stores in the area. Suggest that it be serviced and cleaned by an authorized Husqvarna Viking Dealer. You can find the nearest dealer by click on the "Dealer" link at http://www.husqvarnaviking.com

Good luck.

One fundamental tip is to follow the color coding, start with green, then blue/navy, then red, and finally yellow. The sequence is work inside to outside with threading (green - blue - red - yellow). Do not try different order--especially with green and blue -- since the threads build on each other. I have switched yellow and red with no impact but green then blue is always the proper order.

Good luck.

How do I change to straight stitching from overlock stitch please? I am using a friends Bernina1015 and she is in New Zealand!


Hi. Take out the looper threads and just leave the needles threaded. And if you want just one line of thread unthread one of the needles.
Of course then your going to have to rethread the loopers later to overlock in which case its important to do them in order.
Upper looper, lower looper, right needle, left. If yours is color coded as most are then the order would be blue, red, green, yellow.
Hope this helped.

Trouble with sensor


The upper thread sensor on most Brother's is activated by the check spring. Either your check spring has broken or is stuck. You may be able to fix this if you can get to it. A drop of oil may be all you need. I may be able to give more specific advise if you tell me what model it is.

Good luck!

Threading a husqvarna huskylock 1001L serger


Solution taken from "Handbook for Huskylock Sewing Machine Models 1001L/1000L/1000"

1. Raise the presser foot by using presser foot lever. When the presser foot is raised, the two thread tension discs in the thread tension control panel are released so that thread passes freely between them. Otherwise thread tension may not be correct.

Important! When threading the needle, always be sure to lift the presser foot lever, and also take care to thread in the proper order.

Threading order:
1. Upper looper thread (green)
2. Lower looper thread (blue)
3. Double chain stitch looper thread (purple) in case of 5 thread stitch or double chain stitch
4. Right needle thread (red)
5. Left needle thread or double chain needle thread (yellow)

Caution!
Because the left thread tension dial (yellow) is used for either the left needle or the double chain stitch needle, these needles will never be used at the same time.

Upper looper (green) sequence:
1. Thread holder (silver triangle openings attached to thread holder stand)
2. Thread guide (flat silver clips just behind thread tension disc)
3. Thread tension disc (circular knobs with numbers for tension setting)
4. Pull thread around upper looper guide and upper looper
5. Pull thread into hole of upper looper

Lower looper (blue)
Repeat 1, 2, 3.
4. Pull thread around guide (see color coded chart inside front serger cover).

Easy threading mechanism (for lower looper)
1. Pull out the lower looper threading lever
2. Thread the lower looper and position the thread on hook of the lower looper
threading lever.
3. Push the lower looper threading lever back to its basic position while
holding the end of the thread.

Caution:
When returning the lower looper threading lever, always make sure that the two
blue triangle marks (directional arrows) meet each other.

Right needle thread (red)
Left needle thread (yellow)
Important: Thread the needles after threading of lower looper and upper looper.
First raise the presser foot lever, and then thread the needle threads in order shown in color coded thread guide.

Bobbin Thread


I have had the same problem. I always just used the same color of bobbin thread as on the top. It is a pain to change inbetween each block, but the designs usually look perfect. I will have to try playing with the tension.
