Hi. Make sure you have at least 3 inches of thread pulled through the needle when you begin to stitch.

Machine will sew fine wiyhout thread. Usung thread it serms the needle gets caught in fabric


Completely remove the thread. RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Verify with the owner's manual that it is threaded correctly. (Most issues result from incorrect threading sequence.)

Make sure the bobbin thread is threaded and installed correctly.

Install a brand new needle.

Set the upper tension to somewhere near the midway point between high and low number.

Check that the needle/thread/fabric are compatible.

Keeping the thread in needle when you begin to sew


after threading the needle pull about 6" of thread out the back under the press foot
that way the thread is jammed under the foot and is held in place for the next thread
bobbin thread should also be out the back
when you have finished sewing then lift the foot and move the material sewed about 6"" away from the foot before cutting the threads

Why won't thread stay in the needle?


Is the thread pulling out of the needle when you first begin to sew? If so, be sure you are pulling sufficient thread through the needle at the outset--between 4-6 inches. You can also try bringing the bobbin thread to the top before beginning to stitch.

Needle won't remain threaded


make sure the thread has long thread tails of 4 to 6 inches long
and have the thread tails pulled behind the needle before starting
to sew.

My machine keeps clogging at the beginning of my sewing


Try these suggestions
1. Change the needle--use a needle that's for the fabric being sewed
2. Rethread the machine--top --make sure to use every thread guide
3. try a different bobbin--make sure bobbin is inserted correctly into the bobbin case, & make sure the bobbin is turned the correct way in the bobbin case
4. make sure the thread has not come off the thread take up lever
5. Clean under the needle plate & in the bobbin area for lint or threads

I was sewing on tshirt material (an actual tshirt) and the understitching was a mess of thread. I messed with tension and thread and bobbin and it finally started sewing correctly. Now I am trying to sew...


Go to www.singerco.com and download a manual for free, also they have a lot of good tips on their website. I know some basics, make sure that you are not using old thread, and the right size needle for the job.

My thread often becomes unthreaded from the part that raises and lowers the needle causing the thread and fabric to jam up


Your needle should not come unthreaded in the middle of sewing.. if it does, it is because the thread breaks. this can be a simple tension problem or brittle thread.

if you are talking about at the beginning of sewing that the needle comes unthreaded, then you should just pull out 6-8 inches of thread through the needle before putting your fabric under and begin sewing.

i hop that helps.
