SOURCE: Extra spool pin for Brother Super Ace Machine for twin sewing

You can search for the part online:

Make Model spool pin

or, if you are creative, make your own. Some people put a small wooden dowel on a heavy base and just set it behind the machine. There are also stand-alone spool holders that you can purchase online.

My brother electric super ace 11 sewing machine stitch program stopped working can you mend it yourself!

Depends what exactly is the problem. However, if it is a computerized model, it would probably be best to take it to a service technician.

How do I replace the spool pin on XR65 sewing machine
Posted on Sep 11, 2012

This is from a Model 5160; might it work?
Two ways.. either put the new spool pin in the other extra hole to the left of the trap door on top
OR take out the two bigger screws on the top cover that hold it in, also take off the knobs on the front sliders (patterns selection) and remove the top cover. Push the old pin out from the inside with nail or something similar and replace. Posted on Feb 03, 2010

Parts diagram show on the left as # 10.

Hi - I'm sorry you have been waiting for an answer to your problem. Can you tell me whether this was first time you used the cartrige, or has it been working up until now? Unfortunately, the cartridges tend to break fairly easily.
To determine whether your cartridge is broken, take out the thread and thread it again. The cartridge won't lock-in unless your presser foot is up and your needle is raised to its hightest position (needle threaders are designed to prevent damage, so they often won't work if the parts of your machine are not positioned properly for threading).  
If the cartidge still won't engage, check the page in your manual that describes the parts that came with your machine - you should see a picture of a spool pin. Although the spool pin is designed to accommodate spools of thread that don't fit in your cartrige, you can use the spool pin all the time. Your manual describes how to install the spool pin.
Fortunately, you can purchase spool pins and replacement cartridges from several online sources, including eBay, and some Babylock Dealers sell them (the Babylock and Brother cartidges are interchangeable). I have the same machine, and I always keep an extra cartridge around. I can thread the extra spool while the other is sewing. When the machine stops for a color change, I just insert the extra cartridge with the next color, then thread up the empty cartridge for the next color. Speeds up your embroidery alot. 
On Google, type in Brother Thread Cassette - you'll get lots of hits, and you should be able to find a cartridge for about $10.00.
If you have and other readers have time to rate my answer (good or bad), your rating helps me determine whether I understand your problem.
If you have more details about your problem or have additional questions, please feel free to comment. I can send you the instructions for threading the cartridge and installing the spool pin if your manual is missing. Just submit a comment - and I'll help anyway I can.
Cheers, Ginny

Thread constantly wraps around spool pin

Cut a round curcle of fabric the size of the spool from a piece of felt. Put a hole in the middle and put it under the spool of thread. If this does not work you can purchase a small net that fits over the spool. It is designed to keep the thread from coming off the spool except for being pulled through naturally.
Hope this works.

Spool pin

Spool pin is usually on the top Right hand side of the machine. It is sometimes not clearly visible (it looks like a small metal rod protuding out, but not long enough to hold your thread). You will have to pull it up so that it extended and then you can use it.
