I sewed a support seam on neck line. got the bumpy stitches from bobbin. rewound bobbin, threaded machine. went to sew and now nothing works. it wont sew.


Not quite sure since the symptoms are not clear. "Bumpy stitches from bobbin"--does that mean there were thread nests on the bobbin side of the fabric? That is thread nesting or bird nesting resulting usually from mis-threading, upper thread not completely seated in tension disk, or upper tension too loose. Remove the upper thread from the machine. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning--verify the thread path is correct. Set the upper tension to the midway point between high & low number and retest the machine. (Upper tension may need to be tweaked because fabric, thread, and age of the machine will have an affect.)

Check that the bobbin is wound smoothly--no lumps, bumps, or thread ends/pieces sticking out of the bobbin. Check that the bobbin is installed in the bobbin case correctly (turning the proper direction) and the bobbin tension is threaded completely.

If the upper thread is not picking up the bobbin thread, make sure to install a brand new needle. If it still won't pick up the bobbin thread, then the machine's timing has probably been knocked out of alignment. Search for sewing machine timing or take it for service.

I have a brother ls-2150 I can't pick cotton up from the bobbin


Try installing a brand new needle (verify it is installed correctly). If it still does not pick up the bobbin thread, the needle/hook may be out of time, requiring service.

My Bernette 715 isn't picking up the bobbin thread and is getting jammed. Any ideas what's wrong?


First thing to always try: Install a brand new needle. A dull, worn, or bent needle will cause great frustration. It is also the least expensive resolution to most problems.

Second: Remove all the threads. RAISE the presser foot. Rethread from the beginning making sure it is threaded correctly.
Pull up the bobbin thread before beginning to stitch and hold the thread tails in the left hand while slowly taking the first few stitches:

If still having issues with not pulling up the bobbin thread, the needle/hook may be out of time.

I need a manual for singer 7105


If when you put the bobbin in, you can't get the top thread to bring it up, your timing is off. That means that the hook that catches the top thread as it goes around is out of sync. If you have had no experience working with this type of machinery, I do not recommend that you try to fix it yourself; however, any sewing machine technician can fix it for you--it should not be expensive and doesn't take long, and it doesn't have to be a Singer dealer--hooks and how they work are standard for every machine. I believe that Sears will work on any machine. It doesn't require a replacement part.

Needle will not pick up bobbin thread


Sounds like the timing isn't quite right. Your best bet is to go have it serviced and timed.

I have rewound a bobbin on my sewpro sewing machine. When I loaded the bobbin back in the machine I can't get the machine to pick up the thread to sew again.


Welcome to FixYa. I always try the easiest fixes first - make sure your bobbin is inserted correctly, and that the bobbin thread is securely threaded in the bobbin case (sometimes the bobbin thread doesn't "catch" when you place it in the bobbin case). If all is well in the bobbin area, rethread your machine. Make sure that the presser foot is in the raised position when you thread. If it still isn't sewing correctly, change your needle. These last three steps fix most problems. But, if you are still having problems, look at the thread in the problem bobbin. It should be straight and tight. If it is kind of wobbly and a little loose, you'll need to wind the thread onto a new bobbin.

If are new to sewing, keep your manual close by and refer to it often. Simple mistakes can make a new sewer loose confidence, but it is all part of the process of learning your machine.

Good luck and happy sewing. If you have a sec, please rate my response so I know when I need to work on my responses.

Thanks for stopping in. Ginny

The needle thread will not pick up the bobbin thread


It looks right but its not. Try looking on the internet for threading instructions. The bobbin winds in two directions, I have never saw a Bernina but I have 2 new machines and the thread goes in and then threads back to the left. Its hard to describe. But if the bobbin isn't right it will not pick up the thread. Write to Bernina for instructions. There are websites that have the directions for free.
