    I bought a used Pixie Craft Machine for my granddaughter to start sewing with. It did not come with a manual. How do I thread it. I can figure everything else out. Or what is the model number so I can download a manual?

Try a new needle, but I am afraid that it will need service and that usually costs more to fix than you paid for the machine. If, this is true, and she really wants to sew, go to a place that sells machines and gives lessons. She will treasure it the rest of her life. I speak from experience, my granddaughter was 8 years old, and I bought her one of those types and it really discouraged her because there was always a problem. I bit the bullit and went to JoAnn Fabrics and bought her a Singer, they gave her lessons on her machine and answered any questions. Then I signed up for some classes at JoAnn's and now she sews like a little pro, makes doll clothes and she and her sister design some of their own clothes and embellish some of their own. (I think project runway inspired them). Their mom is so proud of them because she cannot sew a stitch. She is banned from their machines, lol. By the way, she is 10 now and her sister is 12 and they formed a little sewing club with their friends and have fashion shows. It was the best money I ever spent and do not regret my decision to buy the right machine. It may cost a little more to begin with but the enjoyment is priceless.

Janome 9000 bobbin thread ends up on top of fabric


change the needle--
Correct needle insertion is mandatory for proper use of your sewing machine.
Raise the needle bar to the highest point, then loosen the needle clamp screw to remove the old needle.
Place the new needle in the needle clamp with the flat side of the needle facing the back, (round needle, the groove in the needle should face away from the shaft).
Push the needle all the way up as far as it will go. Then tighten the needle clamp screw.

rethread the top thread--top & bobbin
check the bobbin to make sure the bobbin is not damaged
reinsert the bobbin in the case correctly

Can't get the needle thread to loop over the bobbin thread. The bobbin thread is already thru the hole.


You only need the thread to loop over the bobbin thread to bring up the thread when you are threading the machine. If, you mean it is not sewing after threading then I need more information.

The needle keeps jamming into the bobbin case.


try changing the needle
try a different thread top & bobbin
make sure the bobbin area is clean of lint & loose threads
check to make sure there is no lint in the feed dog area
also check to make sure the thread stays on the thread take up lever
but if none of these suggestions work,, then the machine could be out of time & need to go to a repair shop

Problems with prolectrix sewin machine


you have to make sure the bobbin thread is positioned right in the middle. When the needle comes down (into the bobbin compartment), you can peer into the bobbin compartment and see a loop of thread (coming out of the needle). You want to catch that bobbin (thread) in the loop of thread (that runs from the needle).

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.

Janome Memory Craft 9500 Troubleshooting


Have you tried a new needle?

If re-threading, changing the brand of thread, etc. does not work, then it's likely your machine is out of time. Search for sewing machine timing or take it for service.

Janome Memory Craft 9500 Troubleshooting


The solution that I found last night was the thread tension. I have never touched the dial, only had it set on 'auto." When I started playing with it, I realized the top thread should be really easy to pull through the machine and it wasn't. I started turning the dial (to 3 or 4) and the thread slid through the machine perfectly. No more birds nest! I really thought it was bobbin initially because of the horrible sound it was making.
