How do I get my Elna 7000 to sew as when I thread the needle and start sewing - the thread is somehow pulled out of the needle?


If you haven't already, install a brand new needle. Be sure to use good quality thread--no old stuff or bargain bin variety.

Remove all the thread from the machine.

Raise the needle until it is at the highest point it will reach before it begins to lower.

RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning--verify the thread path is correct. Pull at least 5 inches of thread tail through the needle.

Check that the bobbin is installed correctly.

Set the upper tension to somewhere around the midway point between high & low number.

Pull the bobbin thread to the top of the fabric:

When you begin to stitch, gently hold both thread tails with your left hand and begin stitching slowly to start.

Thread keeps coming out of needle when sewing


When you start sewing, make sure the thread is long enough so the machine does not pull the loose end down into the bobbin casing. It is best to drawn both threads (bobbin and top thread) up through the pressure plate before you place the fabric under the pressure foot.

Keeping the thread in needle when you begin to sew


after threading the needle pull about 6" of thread out the back under the press foot
that way the thread is jammed under the foot and is held in place for the next thread
bobbin thread should also be out the back
when you have finished sewing then lift the foot and move the material sewed about 6"" away from the foot before cutting the threads

My needle does not stay threaded on my Brother Lx 3125 (the top thread) it keeps coming out of the needle while stitching. How can I fix this?


keep a thread tail of 3-5 inches & when you sew make sure the thread is pulled behind the needle each time you sew, even if you have to hold the thread tail with your fingers

Will not sew a locked stitch and the thread keeps pulling out of the needle. Perhaps I have it threaded wrong. I cannot find the manual that came with the machine.


Maybe the needle isn't in correctly. The flat side of the needle faces right, Also, manual says it will use only Singer Red Band regular point style 2020 size 14 needles. I would think any brand, regular point, size 14 would work.

Threading this dog it not intuitive, and keeping it threaded is a continous task.
Next: Threading
!. Unwinding off spool clockwise --- up from the back through the **** on top . Do NOT wrap thread around tension disc (little round thingy) that is at the ****.

2.On the left end of the knob that looks like a sideways spool there are two silver discs. Slide the thread between them. Make sure it doesn't jump out (at any point during your task)and go one step to the left, between disc and sewing machine. Then down to:

3.Thread straight through 1/4" metal loop at knob-like thread guide. then thread makes a u-shaped trip up the knob-shaped guide to the take-up lever.. Thread tends to slip behind this guide, but needs to stay in the center.

4. Through the take-up lever, right to left, then down to thread guide next to needle, pulls through from back to front then through needle left to right.

OR IT could be the bobbin holder....not even going there right now. Good luck.

Threading a pfaff creative 7570


Always thread the machine with the presser foot up. This keeps the tension disks open while you are threading. Open the lid on top. Put thread on spool holder. Go directly to your left and down the path on the farthest left. Go all the way to the bottom and bring the thread up on the path closer to the spool. Hook the thread through the metal piece that moves up and down while sewing. It should be in the highest position when threading. Run the thread down and clip into the small metal holder above the needle. Pull down needle threader, draw thread across front of it from left to right and pull through needle.

Singer sewing machine


If you are using a threadcutter on the Left side of the machine, it may not leave enough slack when you go to start a new stitch, and as the needle decends, the thread is pulled through the eye.

Just try to pull a little more thread through before you recommence.......just why manufacturers would locate a threadcutter where it will not quite allow enough slack thread for the needle to move down for the next stitch without unthreading the needle is one of life's great imponderables.

Bobbin Thread won't come through


Thread the machine and the bobbin. Turn the handwheel towards you with your right hand and hold the the top thread in your left hand pulling slightly to the back of the machine. When the needle goes into the needle plate keep turning the handwheel untill the needle picks up the bottom thread and by pulling the top thread you shold be able to pull the botoom thread through the needle plate.

Practise makes perfect.
