Need help making a bobbin...

I've been sewing for a little while, but, I've never made my own bobbin before. I have a White Fashionaire 2380 sewing machine, and I need help. I'm trying to make a bobbin out of the heavy duty thread I have, and I just can't seem to get it right. :(

Ahah! I was having a similar problem, but figured it out. What you do is you first put the spool of thread you want on the bobbin in its normal place, just as if you were sewing. Then you take the end of the thread and wrap it around the metal button-looking thing on the top of the metal string catcher on top of the machine. Wrap it around once in a figure eight sort of pattern (or kinda like a Jesus-fish symbol). Then you take the end and put it through one of the holes on the bobbin. Make sure there's enough so that it won't slide out, because it will wind at sewing speed. Now, you take the bobbin and put it on the metal post on the right-hand side of the machine, the one in front next to the white plastic round with a screw in the middle. It should fit on tightly.

Now, here's the part that took me forever: on most machines I've encountered, there's a switch somewhere that tells the machine to wind the bobbin. On the White Fashionaire 2380 that switch is the bobbin-holder itself (the metal post it is on right now!). Push the post, bobbin and all, towards the white plastic thing (sorry, but it's late and proper teminology eludes me). It should click over, and your thread should be going from the spool, around the metal button (in a figure eight fashion) and should be threaded through one of the holes in the bobbin. Now you hold the end of the thread and press the pedal, and after a short while the thread will be pulled out of your hand (or possibly not, if it's long enough). Keep going until you have enough thread on the bobbin, and cut it loose! You're done!

My thread keeps breaking when I sew


Tension is maladjusted. There is a tensioner on the front of your machine. If it is too tight (turned clockwise) the thread will break. Also could be the bobbin has tangled. Remove it and check for tangles.

My prdect is fashionaire 2380.when i'm sew somthing it's break the thread,and it's stack


Check the thread spool to see if there is a nick where the thread is catching. If there is, you can smooth away the nick with an emery board, or just flip the spool so the thread is feeding from the bottom of the spool.

Sometimes the thread feeds too quickly from the spool and puddles around the spool pin. A thread net (can be purchased online or at a sewing machine dealer) can eliminate this.

Check the threading to be sure it is correct - always thread to top thread with the presser foot up.

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

Refer to your manual for threading and bobbin position.

Bobbin thread not feeding into the upper needle thread


completely unthread the machine....ensure the needle piston shaft is in the correct position and retread the upper. reinstall the bobbin and turn the machine by hand to engage the bobbin thread. Draw the bobbin thread through the stitch plate and with the needle thread, allow to trail off the back. attempt to sew a piece of scap material.

please let me know what happens at this point.
