Make sure that you are using a heavy enough needle, #16 or #18. Those are Kenmore numbers.

Can i sew denim with the ww200 mighty mender.


Probably not recommended for your machine. Denim is a difficult fabric even for some standard sewing machines. If you do attempt to stitch denim, it might be best to avoid sewing more than one layer of denim. Definitely, denim seams could be detrimental to your machine.

Hi there looking at buying a yamata fy2300 can this machine sew denim? If anyone could help they would be great thank you.


According to this web site, it says the machine will sew everything "untill jeans" (sic). By that, I assume it means fabric lighter weight than jean fabric will work on this machine. In other words, sewing denim fabric may damage the machine.

GC 500/550 not pulling bobbin thread. My wife has used the machine several times without issue, the last time she broke a needle sewing some denim, we found most of the needle but could not find it all,...


some sewing machines can not sew denim good,
here are some suggestions
since a needle was broken & replaced--if the needle has a flat side it goes to the back of the machine
make sure the needle is inserted correctly & pushed up inside of the needle holder & the needle screw tightened correctly
is the correct needle being used for the thread & fabric being sewed?
when sewing denim, a denim needle is needed, I usually purchase mine at walmart, I have 2 necchi sewing machines & the denim needles work just fine on my machines.

if none of the above suggestions help then the machine could be out of time, just because of a broken needle. only a repair shop has the correct tool to fix this problem

Bobbin tread is loose when sewing on cotton material Have adjusted tension, it is on 9. It is fine when I sew denim, which I sew a lot but I am trying to sew cotton now. I have cleanned machine, changed...


Have you checked not only the top tension but also the bottom (bobbin) tension? Top tension is usually a lever wheel etc on the machine (depending on model). To tighten the bobbin tension you need to tighten the small screw on your bobbin casing.

I don't suppose it could be as simple as this?
