Sounds like your hook to needle timing is off. When you sew through thick materials, a lot of machines have issues where the needle sticks in the fabric but all the internal parts shift and this causes the hook to needle timing to go out. The begging signs of this is skipping stitches. You will have to have you local independent sewing store do this adjustment for you

Hope that helps :)

Why does the top thread sometimes picks up the hook and then picks up bobbin but bobbin then crosses over and makes a mess? Wont work


Basic Tips for All
  1. Always turn the handwheel TOWARDS you (counter clockwise) as turning it in the opposite direction (away from you, clockwise) may knock the timing out requiring repair from a service center.
  2. Always be sure your presser foot is in the DOWN position before sewing. Sewing with the presser foot in the up position will cause your thread to tangle and your bobbin to jam.
  3. Change needles regularly (after 16 hours of use) as dull/weak needles can cause damage to your machine and fabric. Only use SINGER needles on your SINGER sewing machine.
  4. Always be sure you are using the correct bobbin for your machine. Class 66, Class 15 and Class 15J bobbins look very similar. However, using the incorrect bobbin class in your machine can cause damage.

Ishow me how to rewind the bobbin on a touch tronic 2001 singer sewing machine


Presser foot up, takeup lever at the top, thread the machine normally all the way and through the needle, open the needle plate, press the little lever to the right, wind the thread from the needle round the presser foot screw, press on the foot control slowly and wind the bobbin, when you have enough thread on the bobbin close the slide plate the winder will drop down, pull the threads to the back of the machine and start sewing

Bobbin not picking up thread


here are some suggestions
make sure the needle is the right one for the fabric being sewed
make sure the needle is all the way up into the needle holder
check to see if the top thread has come off the thread take up lever
try a different bobbin
if the machine is a front or side loading bobbin make sure the bobbin
is inserted correctly into the bobbin case and that the bobbin case
is inserted correctly into the machine
turn the bobbin the opposite way in the bobbin case
also clean under the needle plate and in the bobbin area for lint
it's a possibility that the machine could have a timing problem and
needs to be checked

I am having alot of trouble finding info for my white e-6354this is a vintage machine I realize but I can't get the top thread to pick up the bobbin thread


Rethread your machine, making sure your needle is not bent or dull, and please make sure that your presser foot is not sitting flat against the needle plate. Make sure you thread needle with flat side behind and the more rounded side facing you.
Lift the presser foot so that it will open the tension disks.
I hope this helps.

The bobbin thread will not pick up. The machine had jammed and I forced the wheel and can't get bobbin thread to pick up. When I thread manually, I only get holes, no stitches. Is it a timing belt?


check your needle to see if it's bent---roll on flat surface to see if it roll correctly
on some sewing machines when the thread comes off the thread take up lever it can cause the machine to jam
also if the bobbin thread becomes tangled it can jam
check the bobbin area for lint or loose threads
try having a top thread tail & bobbin thread tail of 3-4 inches
try holding the top thread tail & turn the handwheel on the right side on the machine manually & put the needle down into the bobbin area & see if the bobbin thread will pick up that way

Frister Star bobbin/threading problem


First of all make sure you have the needle in the correct way round, when you thread the machine make sure the presser foot is up so the thread goes between the tension discs, top tension about 4 or 5, make sure you can pull the bobbin thread through with slight resistence and the bobbin should turn anti clockwise in the bobbin case as you look at the open part.
