You can get frre threading diagrams from
I couldn't see instructions for the exact model number you mention.
These are for the Singer 5932, which I assume will be very similer to your machine.
And these are for the 5508 and 5528
I hope this helps!

Make sure the needle is threaded properly. If the thread is going through the needle in the wrong direction, the thread won't be picked up.

I have a singer touch n sew model 638. All parts seem to be working, except when I try to sew, no thread is left in the fabric. Also, when I use the pedal, I have to push it pretty far, and when it finally...

Make sure the divot in the needle is facing the bobbin case.
Thread can be wound up in the rear of the bobbin case causing a delayed advance... This is often not visible when bobbin is removed.

How do i thread a singer model #1120 sewing machine?

You can download your manual directly from singer. It has illustrated instructions. Go to and put your model number (1120) in the search box. This will bring you to the download page.
I've included an image of the page on threading your machine below:

Bobbin not looping top thread to make a stitch

Get a manual for your machine so you know how to properly thread the machine - you need to be sure the thread goes through the guides in proper sequence and - ALWAYS thread a sewing machine with the presser foot up.

You need to be sure the bobbin thread is feeding in the correct direction from the bobbin spool and through the correct guides.

Check the needle to see if it is installed correctly and is not bent.

Most sewing machine needles are installed with the flat side toward the back of the machine.

After proper threading and bobbin feeding, hold onto the top thread tail and lower the needle down and back up to pull up the bobbin thread.

Take both thread ends under the presser foot and to the back of the machine.

You did not provide the make and model of your machine so I can only suggest if you do not have a manual, search the Internet. Singer and Brother have downloads. Sewusa has many brands/models.
