You do not have an embroidery machine, or an automatic threader. This is a basic sewing machine, you can free style embroider by covering the feed dogs and, using an embroidery hoop plus the darning foot but you don't have an embroidery attachment per se. Read your manual, if you do not have one go to www.singerco.com and download a free copy under customer support and save it to your computer. Embroidery machines usually start at $600 and up. $600 is a very basic one. If, you want one take that machine back and buy one from a place that gives lessons on it, (check out JoAnn's and private shops). You will enjoy it more if you know what all of the features are.

Singer Q7469 confidence sewing machine


Hey Shari,
When you say, "thread bunches up" does that happen under the needle plate? Or on top of the fabric at the needle? This can be several things like, installing the correct needle for that machine and proper threading.
I might be able to help more if I had more information like make and model machine you are using, and a response to the question above.
Cheers,

I cannot get the CE-250 automatic needle threader to work. Threader and needle do not align up together.


Always make sure you rotate flywheel to raise the needle to its highest position before trying to use the threader. additionally the correct needle has to also be used so the threader wire and needle eye line up properly.

What needles do I need


As above, your machine will work fine with either standard sewing machine needles or embroidery needles from Schmetz, Organ, or Singer, but most experienced users find they use standard sewing machine needles instead of embroidery needles which are much more expensive. The only difference is on embroidery needles the eye is slightly larger.

Now, as to your snapping thread! The needle is not usually the cause of that. Your problem is being caused by too much tension being applied to the thread BEFORE it goes into the thread path, or it can also be caused by aged thread. Even if you purchased it new, it could have been standing on the shelf for a while. Most experienced users don't put the thread on the provided spindle; instead, put it in a mug placed at the back of the machine away from the embroidery hoop, and then thread normally. If you have a CE-200, you will have an auxiliary silver thread holder at the back you can use before the thread enters the normal thread path. Also, try switching the thread (as well as the thread brand) you are using to test if the problem is the thread.

Bobbin thread is coming to top when embroidering. I have changed needle and re-threaded several times


Just an FYI-the bobbin thread needs to match your top thread. The majority of the thread that appears in the top of your embroidery actually IS the bobbin thread. The machine is working correctly. Don't use a bobbin full of white thread-instead, thread a bobbin with the color your doing the embroidery work in to match and you will have a perfectly beautiful embroidery.

Make sure your machine is properly threaded. Use both hands when you thread it. First test your machine sewing regularly, if is fine it could be the tension. It has the tension preset but sometimes it requires for it to be loose or tighter. Also make sure your needles are properly installed. the flat part suppose to be facing away from you.
Are you filling your bobbins in embroidery mode? It helps a lot! Look for the steps online.
