SOURCE: Threading the Bobbin

Place the bobbin in the bobbin case making sure the thread feeds clockwise. Draw the thread through the slot on the case. Continue to draw under the tension spring and through the opening pulling out about 6" of thread. Hold the latch open, position the bobbin case into the suttle and release the latch. THe case should lock into place when the latch is relaeased.

With the top thread, hold out about 5" to the left. While holding on tot he top thread, turn the hand wheel toward you and you should see a loop at the feed dogs. grab the two thread and bring them behind the presser foot.

SOURCE: I just inherited a Pfaff 139. Can you tell me

Hi! Congratulations! I just read a great review of your machine at http://sewing.patternreview.com/cgi-bin/sm/readsmreview.pl. One of the things the reviewer noted is that the 139 wasn't designed by Pfaff. It was designed by another sewing machine company (the GZ in your serial number) that Pfaff had bought. The machine dates to the 1950s.
Statewide sewing (http://www.statewidesewing.com/#Accessories) has a great selection of belts.
Hope this helps!
Happy Sewing

SOURCE: Bobbin thread bunching up.

You might have to adjust the tension. My machine was doing something similar because I accidentally changed the tension instead of the stitch length. The manuel should tell you how to adjust it.

Pfaff hobbylock 4842 serger - how to thread


here is a manual:

PFAFF hobbylock 4842 Instruction Manual

Be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the machine. Also, thread each thread in the ORDER specified or your machine will most likely never stitch correctly (usually, the upper looper first, lower looper next, and then the needles).

Thread shred. Pfaff 463. Using 120/19 new needle. And Sunguard Anti-wick UVR bonded polyester thread for marine canvas. Why is my thread shredding?


From my past sewing experience (not an industrial machine), the thread will shred if the needle/thread/fabric are incompatible. Could be the canvas is too coarse and is wearing on the thread like sandpaper. Remember, the thread/needle will penetrate over 10 times before that section of thread actually forms a stitch, so that's a lot of friction going on. In regular sewing, a top-stitch needle has a larger scarf which acts to protect the thread, however, not sure that is a choice for your machine.

How to remove thread that has wound itself around the back of the bobbin case on a Pfaff tipmatic 1035. Is it possible to remove the top plate to get access?


Remove the bobbin case. If the machine has a free-arm cover, it should be removed also. On most older machines, there are multiple needle plates (zig-zag or straight-stitch) available so they are removable & exchangeable, but for your machine, you'd have to verify. You'll have to carefully remove the threads by cutting with a tiny pair of scissors and pulling the threads using needle-nose pliers or tweezers. If you are unable to remove all the threads, you may need to take it for service.
