I took the bobbin area of my Singer Stylist Sewing Machine 533 apart to clean it, had an interrupting phone call and went back to the machine and couldn't remember how the parts go back. Please help me if you can! Thanks!

If you do not have your manual, you can download one for $10 at and it is safe because they use paypal. Normally manuals have all the directions for cleaning and diagrams of how things should go. I had to resort to getting one for an old machine and I felt it was worth it. Singer charges $15 for a hard copy of your manual. Good luck, wish I could be more help.

    Sometimes you do not get the answer you want but I doubt that someone can help you without seeing the machine. I do not answer questions for money, I just do it to try and help. So your one thumb up is not going to hurt me. You need a copy of your manual, bottom line.

I have a Singer 7258 (Stylist). I took it apart to adjust the timing, and now the feed dogs do not seem to be engaging. This machine does not have adjustable feed dogs. Any idea how to fix?

It is important to know how to time a sewing machine so I hope you did this part right. Anyway, the feed dogs aren't engaging gives me an indication that you have set it up for "rewind bobbin". Set your machine up for sew, not rewind.

What sewing machine needle for singer stylist 153

All modern machines take the same home sewing machine needles--the exact same kind regardless of manufacturer. They all have a flat shank, and where that shank goes is important. If your bobbin case is in the front of the machine, it goes to the back. You can generally get them at any WalMart, KMart, or fabric store. Most common size used is #11, #12, and #14.
