First make sure that the needle is fully up (use the hand-wheel). Move the bobbin cover release button to the right and lift the bobbin cover out of the way. Remove the current bobbin, if needed. Hold the new, full bobbin so that the thread comes off the bobbin counter-clockwise when you pull the thread. Place the bobbin into the bobbin case. Pull the thread through the slot near the bottom of the case and to the left. Place a finger on top of the bobbin. Next bring the thread left further towards the back of the bobbin case until it stops in the second slot (near the 8 o'clock position if you compare the position to a 12-hour analog clock). Pull the thread back through the groove in the cover plate until it is cut by the thread cutter at the top left of the cover plate. (The thread will turn a "corner" to the cutter.) Replace the bobbin cover.

Singer has the manual for most of their sewing machines here: http://www.singerco.com/support/instruction-manuals . The direct link to the manual for the 90S is http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/26e7243ab52aaed42904377fea7b090541eb0c9b.pdf . See pages 16-17 (page 18 in the PDF for the English description) and pictures that may be better than the verbal description.

I hope this helps.

SOURCE: how to thread the bobbin on a singer simple sewing machine

Drop-in bobbin: Note: thread must change direction when entering bobbin shuttle notch. Usually bobbin will turn counter-clockwise when threaded properly.

1. hold bobbin so that the tail of thread is facing to left.
2. drop bobbin into bobbin shuttle.
3. pull thread toward you.
4. guide thread into notch and pull to left so that slot engages thread.
5. pull thread diagonally across shuttle toward back of machine.
6. draw bobbin thread up through needle plate with threaded needle.

HELP PLEASE!!!! Need to figure out how to fix a Singer's Sewing Machine's drop in bobbin casing for my Singer 90s Special Edition???


Sounds like bird nesting or thread nesting (a user error), where there are thread "barfs" under the fabric. This is caused by the top thread not being seated in the tension disk. Remove the thread from the machine. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the upper thread!!! Rethread from the beginning. Verify the thread path is correct. Set the upper tension at the midway point between high & low numbers--you'll probably need to tweak it for your particular machine.

Remember, when experiencing problems, install a brand new needle. Remove the thread from the machine, RAISE the presser foot, and rethread from the beginning.

It also helps to always pull the bobbin thread to the top of the fabric, gently hold both thread tails in your left hand, and then slowly take the first couple of stitches.

Bobbins for a singer special edition cir. aprox 1960s


Your local Singer dealer should be able to help with this one. There are several good generic bobbins available and i suspect it will need to be metal rather than plastic. Also check the depth of any bobbins so that they fit in the case or the fixed case without being lose or too high. Lower than the bobbin case can work.

Does the singer model 3820 take a special bobbin? I cannot get it to feed the thread up to the needle.


It takes a singer or universal bobbin with a flat top - not one of the plastic ones that has a curve to the top.

More than likely you have a broken vertical shaft gear.

When you turn the handwheel you should see the sewing hook moving under the bobbin case.

If not, take it to a sewing repair person and it should cost somewhere around $100 to repair.
