For the dressmaker II, the first bobbin, I got through step 1-5 but where the does step 6 go BECUZ that's really trippin me, PLS tell me. And the instruction is not clear at all, I don't understand it


Hi Vicky, I hope this helps you:
1. Remove the slide cover plate by sliding it toward you, and lift
up the bobbin and the bobbin case from the machine.
2. Put the bobbin pin into the hole on top of the hand wheel and
place an empty bobbin on the bobbin pin (spindle).
3. Lift the large spool pin from the back of the machine and
place the spool of thread on the large spool pin.
4. Place the bobbin winder tension clip into the hole in the back
of the machine.
5. Pull the thread to the left and pass it through the bobbin
winder tension disc.
6. Insert the thread through the hole in the bobbin from the inside
out and leave about 3" of thread out. (ensure that the hole on the bobbin is facing upwards)

7. Hold the end of the thread and start the machine, either by
pressing on the start button or the foot control. After the
bobbin winds a few turns, stop the machine and cut the thread
close to the bobbin. (Cut the thread end that is protruding from the hole at the top of the bobbin).


8. Start the machine again and continue winding until the bobbin
is full or the quantity of thread is enough for your needs.
9. Stop the machine and cut the thread. Remove the bobbin from
the bobbin pin.
10.Take out the bobbin pin from the hand wheel and push back
the large spool pin into the slot in the back of the machine.

Good luck :)

HOW TO I WIND BOBBIN ON SINGER 347


If you mean the Singer Style Mate 347, open the face plate and remove the old bobbin. Then, the first step is to hold the hand wheel and loosen the stop-motion screw inside the hand wheel. (Keep the hand wheel from turning with one hand and turn the stop-motion screw towards the front of the machine.) Place your empty bobbin (hole away from the machine) on the spindle near the bobbin winder switch. Feed the thread from the spool on the spool pin through the eyelet on the top of the machine (near the top thread take up) and then down to and around the bobbin tension disc below the on-off power switch. Pass the thread through from the inside of the bobbin to the outside of the bobbin. Move the bobbin winder switch to On and hold onto the end of the thread. Start the machine and let a few winds get placed on the bobbin then stop for a minute. Cut the thread near the bobbin. Restart and continue winding more thread onto the bobbin until you have enough thread or the bobbin is full (it will stop automatically). Move the bobbin winder switch to off and tighten the stop-motion screw.

For pictures, see pages 6-7 in the manual. It's available as a PDF here: http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/9b8c1ca7584c2bea7837ca4bf5338af7f1b5380e.pdf . (These are pages 8-9 of the PDF.)

I hope this helps.

Need to put bobin in a merritt 4530


Flip the presser switch up to raise the presser foot. Turn the hand wheel counterclockwise until the needle is in its highest position.
  • 2Hold the hand wheel in place with your left hand while turning the hand wheel knob counterclockwise with your right hand to loosen the hand wheel knob.
  • 3Place the desired spool of thread on the spool pin so that the pin fits all the way through the hole in the center of the spool. Put the spool holder onto the end of the spool pin that is sticking through the spool of thread and press firmly to ensure that the spool holder keeps the spool in place.
  • 4Grasp the end of the thread and hold it taut between the thumb and index fingers of both hands. Snap the taut section of thread into the thread guide post located to the left of the spool pin.
  • 5Pull the end of the thread gently. Wrap the thread around the bobbin winder tension disk near the left front on top of the machine, starting at the side of the tension disk facing you and wrapping around in a clockwise direction.
  • 6Poke the end of the thread through the small hole in the bobbin from the inside out so that the loose end of the thread sticks through the top of the bobbin. Put the bobbin on the spindle, or bobbin winder, and gently slide the bobbin winder to the right.
  • 7Hold the loose end of the thread in place while pressing down on the foot pedal to start the machine. Hold the foot pedal down until the bobbin is as full as desired. The machine will automatically stop once the bobbin has reached capacity.
  • 8Cut the loose end of the thread using scissors. Slide the bobbin winder to the left and remove the bobbin. Hold the hand wheel in your left hand and tighten the hand wheel knob with your right hand by turning it clockwise

    How do I thread my elna super sewing machine


    Hi Marsha, this is pretty straight forward on these beaut Swiss made machines.

    Have you managed to wind a bobbin firstly? You need to disenage the clutch by holding the outside of the flywheel and turning the inner coupling knob towards you. Bring up the bobbin winder spindle into a vertical position. Place spool of thread onto one of the spool pins at the rear of the machine, then take the thread from your spool across to the thread guide on the left of the head of the machine, to the inside of the bobbin pull the tail from inside the bobbin up through a hole on top. Place the bobbin on the spindle and TURN IT SLIGHLY UNTIL IT CAN BE PRESSED ALL THE WAY DOWN. While holding the protuding end of the thread wind a few turns of thread on the bobbin by pressing the knee control lever until the core of the bobbin is covered securing your starting point. Stop and trim the loose end of thread up against the bobbin, then restart winding until it stops automatically when full, while keeping light tension onto your thread spool at the back (use the curved handle of your scissors into the top of the spoool) so it maintains even tension on the thread as it comes off. Watch the bobbin and give the thread a nudge with your finger if it starts to fill too much in the middle, you want a nice even wind top middle and bottom. When bobbin is fully wound, remove it and swing the bobbin winder spindle to the side. Then tighten up clutch again by holding flywheel and turning inner coupling wheel away from you until it is firm.

    Open the bobbin cover flap, drop the bobbin in with the holes on top. Hold the thread tail and move it clockwise around the bobbin case until it goes into the little groove - press down on the thread while holding the bobbin still with a finger, you will hear the thread click into the tension spring. Try again if this doesn't happen, you must get it into the tension. You can test by lifting the thread vertically, it will come out again if not in the spring.

    Now, top thread. Turn the flywheel toward you until thread take up lever is in its highest position and raise the pressure foot. Place the thread spool on a spool pin so that the thread unwinds itself from the side nearest the machine. Pas the thread from below throu the thread guide then throu one of the two openings of the upper thread tension, thread from left to right, through the hole of the thread take up lever, then pas it from behind through the two thread guides at the lower front of the head. Then thread the needle from front to back. Use the top thread to draw up the bobbin thread by holding the top thread and turning the flywheel towards you through one sequence so the hook catches the upper thread, then pull the top thread to draw up the bobbin thread to the top. Close the bobbin cov er plate, draw both threads to the back of the sewing platform and you're ready to sew.

    You need to oil this vintage machine and there should be marked red points inside the head cover and on the side of the bobbin case denoting where.

    I would suggest that you join the Yahoo group called Elna Heirlooms; you'll find some useful information there and very helpful members who maintain their Elnas like your model.

    Help, my mom is out of town.. I sew two or three stitches and the machine stops. It sounds like it is stuck. I have taken out the bobbin and it doesn't look like anything is stuck?


    Get out the manual and start with maintenance so you can be sure the bobbin area is clean.

    Now start at the beginning of the manual.

    Read and apply as you wind the bobbin and place it into the bobbin case.

    Thread the machine - again - read and apply.

    Pictures and graphics are very helpful but don't always highlight some of the important steps.

    CAN"T FIND THE MANUAL -

    Remove the bobbin-case and clean away any thread the may have tangled there.


    Make sure the thread is tight and even on the bobbin,

    If this is a vertial bobbin/metal bobbin case, the thread winds from the bobbin clockwise and then through the opening on the side of the bobbin case and under the guide just above the opening.

    Lift the needle to it's highest position and then lift the lever on the bobbin-case and hold it open as you insert the bobbin-case into the shuttle.

    If this is a drop-in, horizontal bobbin, the graphic on the plastic lid covering the bobbin will indicate which way the thread feeds from the bobbin and through the guides.

    Replace the needle, with the flat side of the shank facing the back of the machine.

    Lift the presser foot and re-thread the machine. IMPORTANT - always have the presser foot up when threading.

    Hold onto the thread end, lower and raise the needle to pull up the bobbin thread, Take both thread ends under the presser foot and to the back of the machine.

    Place a double layer of fabric under the presser foot. Hold onto the thread ends and lower the needle into the fabric for the first stitch.

    Press on the power pedal.

    I cant remember how to fill the bobbin with thread :(


    Insert the empty bobbin case onto the bobbin winder in the sewing machine.

    Step 2 Set the spool of thread onto the thread peg. Use the same thread you want to use on your material to obtain the best finished stitch.

    Step 3 Follow the arrows or guides to take the thread from the spool to the empty bobbin.
    Step 4 Start the thread around the bobbin in a clockwise direction.

    Step 5 Push the small lever against the bobbin spool to hold it in place. This disengages the needle so it won't go up and down while winding the bobbin.

    Step 6 Press the foot or knee pedal to start the winding process. Stop when you have enough thread on the bobbin for your project.

    Step 7
    Cut the thread between the thread spool and the bobbin. Insert the bobbin into the bobbin case so you can begin sewing.

    Open to clarifications.

    Caution If the spool of thread is not in the right place, the thread may tangle on the spool pin.

    3. Pass the end of the thread through the hole on the bobbin from the inside of the bobbin. windingbobbin_a0993.jpg
    4. Put the bobbin onto the bobbin winder shaft and slide the bobbin winder shaft to the right. windingbobbin_a0994.jpg
    5. Turn the bobbin clockwise, by hand, until the spring on the shaft slides into the groove of the bobbin. windingbobbin_a0995.jpg ac099.jpg Spring on the shaft ac0991.jpg Groove of the bobbin

    6. Turn on the sewing machine. windingbobbin_a0996.jpg
    7. While holding the end of the thread, gently press the foot controller or press start/ stop button (for models equipped with the start/stop button) to wind the thread around the bobbin a few times. Then stop the machine. windingbobbin_a0997.jpg
    Note
    • If the sewing machine is to be operated using the foot controller, connect the foot controller before turning on the machine.
    • When the foot controller is plugged in, the start/stop button cannot be used to start sewing (only for models equipped with the start/stop button).

    8. Trim the excess thread above the bobbin. windingbobbin_a0998.jpg
    Caution Make sure you follow the instructions carefully.
    If you do not cut the thread completely, and the bobbin is wound, when the thread runs low it may tangle around the bobbin and cause the needle to break.

    9. Slide the sewing speed controller to the right (to set the speed to fast).
    (For models equipped with the sewing speed controller.) windingbobbin_a0999.jpg ac0992.jpg Sewing speed controller
    10. Press the foot controller or press start/stop button (for models equipped with the start/stop button) to start. windingbobbin_a18.jpg
    11. When the bobbin seems full and begins spinning slowly, take your foot off the foot controller or press start/stop button (for models equipped with the start/stop button). windingbobbin_a19.jpg
    12. Cut the thread, slide the bobbin winder shaft to the left and remove the bobbin. windingbobbin_a191.jpg
    13. Slide the sewing speed controller back to its original position (for models equipped with the sewing speed controller). windingbobbin_a192.jpg


    Caution Not winding the bobbin properly may cause the thread tension to loosen, and may break the needle.

    Note
    • When the sewing machine is started or the handwheel is turned after winding the thread around the bobbin, the machine will make a clicking sound; this is not a malfunction.
    • The needle bar does not move when you slide the bobbin winding shaft to the right.

    Bobbin filling on Singer 626


    The Singer 626 has a self-winding bobbin. You place the empty bobbin in the bobbin thingie (sorry for being so untechnical). On the left of the bobbin you will see a "lever" with a circular top on it (I think it is red-ish) Again, sorry for being so untechnical. Press the "lever" down. Thread your machine, thread the needle, wrap the excess thread from the needle around the knob that tightens the needle and holds it in place and press your foot down on the foot pedal. The bobbin will automatically wind as you hold the foot pedal down. Do not wind the thread onto the bobbin past the outer white line.

    Threading and putting the bobbin back in the machine


    Most machines have a bobbin case, that removes to place the bobbin inside and then the case goes back into the machiens. However some bobbins just load the bobbin flat from the top. The best place to start is with your machine's manual. If you don't have the machine manual, contact your machine's manufacturer or google "sewing machine manuals" as there are several vendors who sell replacement manuals. One of them is SewUSA.com and they have free threading diagrams on the site,maybe that would help you get started.
