Be sure to use a brand new needle--old or bent/damaged needles frequently will not pick up bobbin thread.

If that does not resolve the problem, the machine has most likely been knocked out of time. Search for sewing machine timing or take it for service.

I have a Simplicity S07 DecoMate and I cannot get the bobbin thread to pick up.


If the machines are very similar, then they most likely thread the same. Usually, the only difference is that sometimes one will have a few extra fancy stitches or extra feature.

Be sure to install a brand new needle. (Be sure the needle is inserted correctly--the flat side faces a particular direction.) Check that the bobbin is installed and threaded correctly in the bobbin case (is it turning the correct direction). If this doesn't resolve the issue, the machine has most likely been knocked out of time--most often by hitting a pin or a particularly thick seam. You can search online for sewing machine timing or take it for service.

My elna sewing machine bobbin won't spin on top to wind thread around. The fly wheel spins though...I've been putting thread on the bobbins by hand.


If the fly wheel is going around then the clutch isn't disengaged to wind the bobbin, you need to pull out the flywheel on your model to disengage the clutch for bobbin winding.

Take thread from thread spool across to bobbin winder thread guide, then back to bobbin and thread the tail through the hole on top of the bobbin. Place bobbin onto spindle on top of machine and then push it against the stop to engage the bobbin winding motor. HOld the thread tail up and start winding slowly until the bobbin core has been covered including the starting point. Stop and trim off the thread tail with scissors. COntinue winding bobbin and give the thread a nudge if needed to wind evening top middle and bottom of the bobbin. A good smooth wind is important. Also don't wind at full speed and keep an eye on the thread reel that the thread is coming off, you don't want it bouncing around as this will **** the thread and stretch then relax it affecting your bobbin wind.

Obviously if you know this and the bobbin winding mechanisim is just not working, then it will need a service/replacement by an Elna repair person.

I can't get the needle thread to pick up the bobbin thread. It's driving me crazy!


Is this a result of you having a problem? One of two things

1) You knocked the clutch out, check you manual on locking the timing back in
2) You knocked the timing off enough that the bobbin hook isn't picking the needle thread up.

Look at the bobbin area and slowly spin the hand wheel. Does your bobbin hook move at all? If it is moving look to see if the hook passes the needle just as the needle begins it's upward journey.

Good Luck!

How do you thread the machine, top and bottom, please.


From the Simplicity Sew Precious Model SWSP2 manual:

Inserting a new bobbin:
  1. Place wound bobbin into the bobbin case.
  2. Pull about 6 inches of thread out from the bobbin.
NOTE: Be sure that the bobbin rotates COUNTER-CLOCKWISE when thread is pulled.
  1. Pass the thread from the bobbin, under the bobbin case spring, and toward the back of the machine.
  2. Slide bobbin cover back into position.

Upper threading:
  1. Turn the handwheel toward you to raise the take-up lever to its highest position.
  2. Lower the presser foot.
  3. Place a spool of thread and spool cap on the spool pin.
  4. Place the thread into the first thread guide at the top of the machine.
  5. Bring the thread down the right slot of the threading path, then around the tension dial. Push the thread tension release lever and pull the thread up so the thread is secure in the thread tension dial.
  6. Bring the thread up the left slot of the threading path and through the take-up lever from right to left.
  7. Bring the thread back down the left slot of the threading path and into the needle eye from front to back. (Clip the thread end with sharp scissors fro easier needle threading.)

Raising the bobbin thread
  1. Make sure the presser foot lever is raised.
  2. Hold the end of the needle thread with your left hand. Turn the hand wheel toward you with your right hand until the needle goes down once and comes back up, stopping when the needle is at its highest position.
  3. Gently pull up on the needle thread. The bobbin thread, looped around the needle thread, will be drawn up through the needle hole.
  4. Push the thread tension release lever and pull about six inches of both the upper and lower threads toward the back of the machine, placing them under the presser foot.
