I have a Singer 7258 (Stylist). I took it apart to adjust the timing, and now the feed dogs do not seem to be engaging. This machine does not have adjustable feed dogs. Any idea how to fix?

It is important to know how to time a sewing machine so I hope you did this part right. Anyway, the feed dogs aren't engaging gives me an indication that you have set it up for "rewind bobbin". Set your machine up for sew, not rewind.

I cannot form any kind of stitch with my Fashion Mate #237. What could be the problem?


Check your needle. Make sure it is fully inserted into the needle bar clamp. Also check and clean your bobbin area and under the needle plate and around the feed dogs.

If that doesn't work for you ... get a magnifying glass and check the shuttle hook, needle plate and bobbin for burrs.

Otherwise your machine may be mis-timed and need professional cleaning and adjustments.

My singer model 237 makes a stitch that doesn't look right. The bottom thread is just goes through the top thread loops under the material

Hi, if stitches are off, there is a problem with balance between the upper and lower stitch adjustments. You have to tweak these. Also, make sure there is no lint in the bobbin case area or under the feeddogs. Here is an excellent blog for 237 Fashion Mate owners. You are lucky to have one of these from the 1960's.
Happy Sewing!
