SOURCE: how do i thread my needle with the singer handy

  1. Loosen needle screw & insert needle with shank's flat side facing front of machine. Push needle in all the way, then tighten screw to hold needle in place.
  2. Install a fully wound bobbin by loosening bobbin nut & placing bobbin on top. Re-attach bobbin nut & tighten. If standard thread spool will be used, then attach spool pin to bobbin shaft & place thread spool onto shaft. Attach white spool cap on end of thread spool, then tighten. Bobbin/spool should unwind facing forward toward needle.
  3. Bring end of thread through thread guides & over tension control. Pass end of thread through needle eye, from back to front, & pull it out about two inches.
  4. A spring pushes pressor foot onto fabric that is being sewn, so lift pressor foot & place fabric underneath.
  5. Turn large handwheel on side of machine (handwheel can be turned in either direction) to raise needle arm to its highest position.
  6. Holding the Handy Stitch in place with your right hand, press on power switch & begin sewing. Guide fabric (being sewn) with your left hand.
  7. To end this sewing session, turn off power. Turn handwheel to raise needle to its highest position. Carefully pull out about three inches of thread through needle & snip, then lift pressor foot to remove fabric. Turn fabric over & loop needle threader through last stitch. Place end of thread from underside through eye of needle threader, & pull to loop through. Pull to tighten and snip end of thread.

Sewing Machine Needle Guide (Schmetz)


Want to know what sewing machine needle to use? Here's a handy guide.
http://www.schmetzneedles.com/learning/pdf/schmetz-needle-chart.pdf

Change your needles frequently. If you are experiencing problems with your stitch, the first thing to do is change out the needle. Needles get damaged and worn over time and are frequently the cause of stitching problems. Needles are the least expensive repair cost on your machine, so don't spare the expense!!!

What is the difference in the length of the needle on a "handy stitch" as opposed to the "stitch sew quick machine?


Check your manual for the "System" of needle
a normal sewing machine needle has a "System" or dimension
called 15x1 or 705 H. That indicates the length, the circumference
etc. If the needle you received with the machine is the same length as the above system then you should be ok. Also most often the needle package for most machines will be labeled "Universal"

Handy stitch sewing it goes into motion of sewing, but it does not stitch at all, I opened it up to see what it going on inside and I see that the thread does not hook. What is wrong! Can you help me...


First, try making sure the needle is in the correct way, second you have the needle threaded from the correct side.
I am sorry to inform you that these type of machines are nothing more than a toy. As the old saying goes, "you only get what you pay for"
