Check your bobbin casing, make sure it is threaded correctly...I have made that mistake a few times (LOL) myself.

Thread not picking up the bottom thread


Remove the top thread from the machine.
Install a brand new needle.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread the top thread!

If it is still not picking up the bobbin thread, then the machine may be out of time. Search for sewing machine timing or take it for service.
Make sure the top tension is set appropriately--the default is the midway point and then tweak it for your particular machine.

Why won't my Bernina Activa 140 sew the blind hem stitch?


Are you absolutley sure you're not getting a problem with stitch formation on, for example, wide zig-zag. Check again, using a different colour top and bottom and make sure that the stitch is being formed properly with only the top colour on top and bottom colour on the bottom. It sounds as though the bottom loop is not being picked-up by the hook properly. Make sure you've thoroughly cleaned-out any fluff under the stitch-plate and remove the hook/shuttle and give the hook race a good clean and give it a single drop of oil, even if you've got the lightweight part-plastic hook/shuttle fitted.

I have a Janome 6000 from eons ago. The top thread isn't picking up the bobbin thread. What should I do?


Go to http://www.sewconsult.com/sewing_machine_troubleshooting/sewing_machine_troubleshooting.htm#my_bobbin_thread_won_t_get_picked_up_by_1 and click on "My bobbin thread won't get picked up by the top thread" if you're brought to the top of the page.

This is a pretty good page for some basic troubleshooting of machine problems.

Hope it helps-especially since the pictures are pretty clear. It does a much better job than I could on my own!

Top thread doesn't pick up the bobbin thread (Toyota sewing m.)


Hi! This may sound silly, but if you changed your needle and put it in backwards (which is easy to do), the top thread won't pick up the bottom thread. Take your needle out and check the flat side of the needle shank--which way is it facing? With a lot of the newer machines, the flat side goes to the back, but check your manual to make sure.

Let me know if this helps, ok?

Happy Sewing!
