Question about White Sewing 1766 Mechanical Sewing Machine
The needle doesn't pick up the bobbin thread. Where do I start with this problem?
I agree about the needle, took me forever to learn that one. I have a Kenmore Sewing Machine that would not pick up the bobbin thread every time I tried it after having it for a while. I would go to my other machine and use it. Then my daughter in law put in a new needle and it worked perfect until I tried to stitch a different type of material. It was then it clicked and I started researching needles for machines. You have to use the correct size needle for the material you are sewing or it will not work right. Also if your needle is dull or bent you will also have problems. Here is a site that may be helpful http://www.taunton.com/threads/pages/t00185.asp You can find more info by searching for "sewing machine needle information" Hope this helps.

Thread the needle eye from the front to the back.
