How do i thread the bobbin on a singer athena 1200 sewing machine


The Athena 1200 and 2000 are "Touch and Sew" slant needle machines. Singer has not made them for many years, but I always loved them, because the bobbin is wound in place--you don't take it out! You can still get a full assortment of presser feet for them; just make sure they're for slant needle machines.

You would be wise to visit the Singer Sewing Machine site and download your user's manual--it's free, and it will show you how to wind the bobbin. There are a series of pictures there as well. There are several steps you need to take, such as raising the presser foot, selecting the blind hem stitch, etc. Sounds complicated, but I owned an Athena 1200, and I can tell you that after the first or second try, you'll find it quite easy.

Incidentally, did you know that it's one of those rare machines that will do a TRUE 1/2" basting stitch! I kept it for years, just for that ability!

I have a scholastic 6704 model and I can't get the bobbin to thread. I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. Please help!!


you may have the bobbin in backwards to the way it's supposed to feed. if your talking about the bobbin not winding on top to fill, you have to push the lever over that the bobbin is sitting on.

I have a Singer Scholastic 6510 and when the needle is going down the thread is not catching.


Remove the bobbin. Thread your top thread just as normal. Now turn the wheel toward you and watch the area where the bobbin normally be. You should notice a sharp object (hook) pick up that thread just as you continue to turn the wheel. If it doesn't pick it up then the needle and hook aren't meeting at just the right time. This will mean that your machine needs to be timed.

Ihave a Singer Curvy 8770, needles keeping breaking and it's not stiching. I am just tring to stich basic frabic together


I would call Singer because something is not in alignment if your have checked all of the suggestions that your manual gives. Without seeing it, I don't know how anyone can help because we cannot see what the needle is hitting, it is like working in a dark room. Singer's phone # 1-800-4singer, JoAnn Fabrics usually has nice people who are very helpful and I know that they sold this model at my JoAnn's because I bought one for Xmas for my granddaughter. They probably will spot the problem right away

We recently bought a used 301 Singer Sewing machine, it appears to sew well but makes a loud clattering sound,where the needle goes up & down, is this typical for this machine?


If I remember the 301 is an American model slant needle with a gear driven motor, the machines were known as 'Rockets' the noise you can hear is the play in the shaft of the motor which is very common to that model if it is where the noise is coming from, if the noise is coming from the needle area then a drop of oil might do it some good.

On my Singer Scholastic, the thread jams in the bobbin area


It sounds like it is not threaded properly through the tension disc. Try rethreading and make sure the presser foot lever is in the up position. If it continues, once threaded and with the presser foot down, pull on the thread through the needle. If it has resistance, it is threaded properly. If it pulls easily then there is a problem in the tension area. Check to see if there are peices of thread broke off in between the tension disc.

SInger buttonholer for a 60's slant needle..thread globbing ...


Personally I don't have the experience with a buttonholer attachment, however I do have several slant Singer machines. I'd suggest that you go to yahoo.com and click on Groups. In the search box put in singerslantsewing and join that group. Members are a diverse group of Singer enthusiasts, some repair guys there, and they are happy to assist, should you join and post your problem. There are other groups for Singers, but this group is dedicated to the slant needle models.
