You can use a regular cup (paper or coffee) to put your extra spool in, then just thread as you normally do but put one thread in each needle side

Can I use a twin needle on a Singer Trafition? It seems to only sew one line of stitches.


Probably depends on the model. Was a twin needle included with your starter kit?

This one indicates it will take a twin needle:
2277 TRADITION

Your owner's manual or the product specifications are probably the best source for information.

Instruction Manuals

BTW, you are using 2 spools of thread, right? You need to thread both needles with separate spools (do not twist the threads when threading!).

How to Use Twin Needle on Your Sewing Machine

Be sure to verify the machine is set to straight stitch. Any zig-zag could break one or both needles!

You also will have to thread the needles manually as the needle threader will not work on twin needles.

ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the top thread!

How i use twin needel


Although your machine does come with a second spool pin to allow two spools of thread, it does not come with a button or setting for a twin needle. You can probably put one on, but I must caution you that you can only straight stitch on it, because if you try even a narrow zigzag, its likely that one of the two needles will hit the plate and break, and they are expensive.

If you want to try it, I can tell you that you need to buy a twin needle--preferably one with the two needles close together. Put one spool in its regular pin, and the other on the extra spool pin, and thread both threads exactly the same, and at the same time. You will not be able t use a needle threader--you will have to thread them by hand.

Using a twin needle for the first time - topstitch is fine but understitch is loose - i can pull the thread and stitches come out. thank you.


Is your bobbin thread actually under tension? check that it is fully into the tension spring, it sounds like its not tensioned fully.

Normally with a twin needle you'll get a little zigzag showing on the underside but the stitches should be secure.
