Check the needle to be sure it is properly installed.

This is usually with the flat side of the needle shaft facing the back of the machine - refer to the manual for this machine to be certain.

Always thread a sewing machine with the presser foot up as this opens the tension control for proper seating of the thread.

Upside down stitching


Am having a difficult time picturing this. Sounds like the upper thread is creating loops under the fabric and the bobbin thread is showing on the top of the fabric.

Make sure to use a brand new needle.

Remove the thread from the machine
ALWAYS raise the presser foot and rethread the upper thread.
Make sure the thread path is correct.

Check that the bobbin is turning the correct direction in the bobbin case and the bobbin thread is threaded through the bobbin tension correctly.

Set the upper tension to the midway point (factory standard), however, this setting may need to be tweaked for your particular machine.

Bring the bobbin to the top of the project Before beginning to stitch.
How and Why to Bring up the Bobbin Thread

Retest--begin sewing slowly.

If the upper thread is still showing on the other side of the fabric, the tension is too loose. If it is pulling the bobbin thread up to the top of the fabric, the upper tension is too tight

OR the bobbin thread tension is too loose. (CAUTION: make only small adjustments to bobbin tension--1/8 of a turn at a time!!! It also helps to mark the screw groove location with magic marker on the bobbin case BEFORE making any changes so you can back it out and return to the original setting.)

Upside down stitching


Sounds like the needle alignment is out.
This website has some instructions on how to properly set it up and also has manuals too.

How do I back stitch


You push on the backstitch button. It's the button that looks like an upside down U. If all it does is take a few tiny stitches back then stops...you need to look at the screen...to the upper right you will see the upside down U and a scissors. make sure both of these are not selected. If one or both have a dark background...touch them and the background turns white/clear. Once they are unselected...you can backstitch at the same speed as going forward.

My 9700 shows hoops a and b but I have a gigahoop and do not know how to program my machine to reconize it


Your machine will only recognize the 5x7 hoop. The giga hoop is two 5x7 hoops next to each other. When you pull up the design on the screen it will show 2 hoops. Each hoop will be one half of the design. One design will be upside down from the other. That's the way it should be. After stitching out one side of the design, turn the hoop, and stitch the upside down part.

I have an old sewing machine in my attic, i just recently put it to use. but i cant seem to find the reverse stitch button. im only 14, it was my moms sewing machine. but shes no longer with us, so im...


I've got a Kenmore sewing machine and the back stitch is a button/lever on the front of the machine. It has to be held down when you want to back stitch, because when you let it go it stitches forward again. Hopefully that helps, I'm not sure what yours looks like. ( I couldn't find pictures of your model online anywhere.) :)

I can't get my Pfaff 230a to straight stitch!


The stitch selector switch is most likely the culprit. Have you tried operating the machine upside down?

Buttonhole making instructions from the manual of the Singer Simple do not seem to be accurate. The tension is incorrect and the machine is only sewing down one side without creating the satin stitch/...


Some machines will start out by sewing a straight stitch all the way around the buttonhole area first and then will zigzag/satin stitch along the sides. Bar tacks will be the last stitches sewn - hope this helps!

How do I program my Viking 980 sewing machine? I can't find my manual & I think this machine can be programmed to stitch a word/phrase at one time, but I can't figure it out.


First touch the "P" button, the #1 will appear in the left digital window. Choose the first letter you want to sew and then push the reverse button, ( the button furthest to the left with the upside down arrow on it) that puts your first letter into memory. Then select your next letter and push the reverse button again. Repeat the process until your word is programmed into the machine.You can start sewing immediately by pressing on the foot control. Pressing the finishing button (Bullseye) before you start to sew, will make the machine tie off each letter so you can cut the joining stitches. Husqvarna may be able to make you a copy of the manual. They can be reached at: 1-800-474-6437 Good Luck

The thread on my handy stitch keeps coming aloose how do i fix it


DId you drop it try turning it upside down and see if it will create stitches this way.

If it does try replacing the small srping inside the unit you will have to remove the bottom cover.
