Use a bigger eye in the needle and loosen of the needle thread tension a bit
needles are all the same length but come with various size eyes to accommodate thicker or thinner threads
use scrap material until you get a good combination

  • Thank you for your input. I changed the thread and didn't have the problem again. Same type of thread, but possibly just a bad/old/weak thread?

My machine keeps showing the bobbin error but there is nothing wrong in the bobbin


Assuming you have threaded the bobbin case correctly, you might try using a different bobbin. There may be something wrong with it. Make sure that there is no thread sticking out of the side of the bobbin.

If there is a bobbin thread sensor, it could be dirty causing it to not read the bobbin correctly.

When you thread the upper thread, be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot so the tension disk is released and the thread can seat properly.

Threading for twin needle how to thread artista 180 bernina


Hi you should have a plastic piece in your tool kit that holds the second spool of thread. It clips on behind the existing thread stand

then thread as normal with one thread on each side of the top tensions now continue to thread down to the twin needle.
the resultant look will be two straight lines on top and a zig zag look on the bottom
hope that helps

When stitching the design the upper thread keeps


The tension is not properly set for embroidery, try to rethread totally new. Sometimes it is also caused by broken thread inside the machine, you can open it with the supplied L-shaped tool on the left side of the machine where the lamp is located and than take it out with a tweezer.

I must be threading my bernina artista 80 wrong it does not sew. I have rethreaded it a lot of times. what am I doing wrong now


Check to ensure that the needle is inserted with the flat side to the back.

Always thread the machine with the take-up lever in the highest position.

Consult the manual for exact threading instructions.

Bernina 2500DCET serger keeps breaking the centre needle thread for no apparent reason .Already had machine serviced,new needle plate didn't solve anything either. Any ideas


I have found with any serger I have used that you have to cut the looper (bottom) threads before re threading the needle threads. You then rethread the loopers.
If you don't do this, the needle threads keep breaking. Hope this helps.

I had the same problem. It maybe you have some bits of thread caught inbetween the metal plates . That's what my problem was . Try cleaning carefully between the plates with something flat carefull not to scratch them.
