  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.

Singer 2273-The top thread keeps coming out of the needle. The thread is not getting cut, but it is not stitching because it has somehow left the eye of the needle!


if you do not leave enough sticking out at the beginning of sewing the arm action of the machine pulls it backward and out of the eye . pull about 3 inches out and hold on to it for 2 or 3 stitches LUCK be with you

My machine turns on but it doesn't actually sew. The needle just pokes holes in the fabric and I don't know how to fix it


Is the bobbin full of thread, and is the needle threaded?
These are very inexpensive machines; some will only sew with what is in them when delivered, then you buy another. :-(

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"

What kind of thread are you using. The most often problem today is that the thread is too thick for the size of needle. Try using a Metallica size 90 or a top stitching needle size 90
if the thread is a cotton type or a quilting thread it is often to thick to travel easily through the eye of a needle quickly to form a good stitch.

Stitch is uneven, not straight, and tension off on top and bottom


on my industrial machine this was caused by the wrong size needle. the length was off just a fraction. just an idea, in case you bought generic needles or something.

Most likely is the left looper thread is trapping the needle threads.

Remove the threads and start over in this sequence....

Left looper - right looper - left needle - right needle.

If you thread the needles before the lower looper, the needle thread wrapped over the looper will be under the looper thread and will never be free to form a stitch, so the threading sequence is critical.
