Unfortunately there is no way to THREAD a bobbin automatically.
(If there was, that would save a lot of time and effort!) But you can automatically WIND
the bobbin using the presser foot. Here is a video that I think will be helpful to you
that details how to do this on most Singer machines:

After you wind the bobbin, you will then put it in the bobbin case and thread as normal.

Please let me know if you found this helpful.

I'm getting an E2 error message on a Singer 8768 Heritage model.. Re-doing bobbin and bobbin placement but still getting the message.

How to Fix Code E2 on Singer Fashion Mate Sewing Machine 7256 eHow

In case you are unable to view--here is the text:
The Singer 7256 Fashion Mate sewing machine has a top drop-in thread bobbin and an automatic needle threader. The digital display on the side of the machine is used to select different stitch settings on the machine. When the display reads error code E2, it means that there is a bobbing threading error, which may be caused by the thread looping or bunching under the fabric as you sew.

Things You'll Need

  • Pen
  • Screwdriver
  • Push the bobbin-winding spindle of the sewing machine back to the left.
  • Turn the hand-wheel toward you, hold the needle thread (thread on the sewing machine needle) and tug it lightly as the needle goes down and then raises up. A small loop will raise up through the needle plate on the sewing machine. Use the tip of a pen to lift the loop up through to the back of the machine.
  • Check the position of the needle. It should be seated in the sewing machine with the flat side facing the back of the machine. If it is not, remove the needle and reinsert it so that it is facing the correct way.
  • Remove the bobbin case. Use a screwdriver to turn the screw on the side of the bobbin until the loops of thread pull taught and are removed.
  • Remove any loose fibers or threads that may be stuck in the tension disks.
  • Reset the upper tension disks. Raise the presser foot lever up. Put the tension setting of the sewing machine on setting "4." Hold onto the spool of thread in your right hand and with your left, route the thread down through the tension channel, around the bottom of the disk and up the other side. When done correctly, the thread will click into place and slip in between the tension disks.
  • Set the thread bobbin in the bobbin case, with the thread passing over the top of the bobbin and then down to the right. Route the thread through the notch located at the left of the bobbin case and pull it through. Move the thread over the top of the throat plate and over to the back of the machine.
Tips & Warnings
  • Using incorrect bobbins may cause error E2 to occur. Not all plastic bobbins are the same size, so check the model number of the bobbin to ensure that you are using the correct one with your sewing machine.

  • Never turn the hand-wheel on the sewing machine away from you, as it will change the timing on the sewing machine.

Why won't my new home super stretch stitch model-844 pick up bobbin thread to sew manual book


If you need a manual, search the internet for:

Make + Model + the word "Manual"

or contact the manufacturer.

Try installing a brand new needle. A bent needle sometimes will not connect properly. Be sure that both upper and bobbin threads are threaded correctly.

On the other hand, the needle/hook could be out of time. You can check that by hand turning the handwheel and watching the needle/hook movement. There are a multitude of web sites and videos that discuss timing. Or--check with a sewing machine technician.

How to fill the bobbin with thread


The bobbin is a little metal wheel that is usually housed under a plate where the upper needle darts down into. Slide the plate aside and fish the bobbin out. Put the bobbin up on the upper right hand side of the sewing machine and connect thread from the full spool of thread to the bobbin and then when you push the pedal down, (if you have arranged it right), your machine will automatically fill the bobbin with thread and automatically shut off when it is full. Then you have to leave a bit of thread hanging out when you put the full bobbin back down into its hiding space. Of course, you can always fill the bobbin by hand too. When you put it back in its housing, some thread has to be hanging out as the needle will drop down, grab it and the two threads (the top one from the needle, and the bottom one from the bobbin) work together.
Machines work differently but the is the main idea behind most of them. I hope that helps.

How do I bring up the bobbin thread?


Place bobbin correctly into machine.
Thread machine correctly.
Hold thread tail coming from needle in your left hand while moving the hand-wheel towards you so that needle goes down and then comes up all the way.
Pull up on the thread in your left hand and "voila!", the bobbin thread is up.

HOW TO I WIND BOBBIN ON SINGER 347


If you mean the Singer Style Mate 347, open the face plate and remove the old bobbin. Then, the first step is to hold the hand wheel and loosen the stop-motion screw inside the hand wheel. (Keep the hand wheel from turning with one hand and turn the stop-motion screw towards the front of the machine.) Place your empty bobbin (hole away from the machine) on the spindle near the bobbin winder switch. Feed the thread from the spool on the spool pin through the eyelet on the top of the machine (near the top thread take up) and then down to and around the bobbin tension disc below the on-off power switch. Pass the thread through from the inside of the bobbin to the outside of the bobbin. Move the bobbin winder switch to On and hold onto the end of the thread. Start the machine and let a few winds get placed on the bobbin then stop for a minute. Cut the thread near the bobbin. Restart and continue winding more thread onto the bobbin until you have enough thread or the bobbin is full (it will stop automatically). Move the bobbin winder switch to off and tighten the stop-motion screw.

For pictures, see pages 6-7 in the manual. It's available as a PDF here: http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/9b8c1ca7584c2bea7837ca4bf5338af7f1b5380e.pdf . (These are pages 8-9 of the PDF.)

I hope this helps.

Need to put bobin in a merritt 4530


Flip the presser switch up to raise the presser foot. Turn the hand wheel counterclockwise until the needle is in its highest position.
  • 2Hold the hand wheel in place with your left hand while turning the hand wheel knob counterclockwise with your right hand to loosen the hand wheel knob.
  • 3Place the desired spool of thread on the spool pin so that the pin fits all the way through the hole in the center of the spool. Put the spool holder onto the end of the spool pin that is sticking through the spool of thread and press firmly to ensure that the spool holder keeps the spool in place.
  • 4Grasp the end of the thread and hold it taut between the thumb and index fingers of both hands. Snap the taut section of thread into the thread guide post located to the left of the spool pin.
  • 5Pull the end of the thread gently. Wrap the thread around the bobbin winder tension disk near the left front on top of the machine, starting at the side of the tension disk facing you and wrapping around in a clockwise direction.
  • 6Poke the end of the thread through the small hole in the bobbin from the inside out so that the loose end of the thread sticks through the top of the bobbin. Put the bobbin on the spindle, or bobbin winder, and gently slide the bobbin winder to the right.
  • 7Hold the loose end of the thread in place while pressing down on the foot pedal to start the machine. Hold the foot pedal down until the bobbin is as full as desired. The machine will automatically stop once the bobbin has reached capacity.
  • 8Cut the loose end of the thread using scissors. Slide the bobbin winder to the left and remove the bobbin. Hold the hand wheel in your left hand and tighten the hand wheel knob with your right hand by turning it clockwise

    No manual, not sure the year either...:( I have a new home memory craft 6000-- and I can not for the life of me thread the darn thing..... there is a bobbin underneath no clue what I am doing... I need to...


    This is same thing as a Janome Memory Craft 6000 (called New Home in UK I think) so why not buy a manual for it, they usually run to 100 pages and are well worth having to best maximise your use of the machine and prolong its life by properly maintaining the machine.

    Here is link to a photocopy of this manual on www.sewingpartsonline.com
    http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/instruction-book-janome-and-newhome-6000.aspx

    Or you can buy a copy on this website
    http://www.sewusa.com/Sewing_Machine_Manuals/New_Home_Manuals/New_Home_6000.htm

    The top loading bobbin will have a tension spring on the side that you need to "click" the bobbin thread into so it is tensioned. There is usually a little crack that the thread goes down into, its a case of holding the thread tail with your right hand, placing a finger tip from your left hand onto the bobbin to hold it still, then press down on the thread tail with another figer so it clicks in
    to the tension device.

    Then place cover plate back over the bobbin leaving the thread tail hanging out and do the usual "lower the needle" down then back up to draw the bobbin thread up to the needle plate.

    Top threading up should be fairly obvious, always do with the pressure foot raised and pay attention to the tension dial and the thread take up lever, all machines have these two points to manipulate the thread and then some thread guides to take the thread down to the needle. I just can't find a threading diagram for this machine online to refer to but Janomes are very similar so if you go to http://www.sewusa.com/Threading_Diagrams/Threading_Pages/New_Home_Threading_Diagrams/New_home_2022_Threading_Diagram.htm
    and take a look this may get you going.

    Hope this helps you out with the 6000, 4 thumbs up if so.

    PS, I always hand hem trousers myself, I just overlock the raw edge first for neatness. If there is hardly any hem allowance, then I will stitch on a piece of bias binding to cover the raw edge, then turn this up and hand sew it.

    How do you thread the machine, top and bottom, please.


    From the Simplicity Sew Precious Model SWSP2 manual:

    Inserting a new bobbin:
    1. Place wound bobbin into the bobbin case.
    2. Pull about 6 inches of thread out from the bobbin.
    NOTE: Be sure that the bobbin rotates COUNTER-CLOCKWISE when thread is pulled.
    1. Pass the thread from the bobbin, under the bobbin case spring, and toward the back of the machine.
    2. Slide bobbin cover back into position.

    Upper threading:
    1. Turn the handwheel toward you to raise the take-up lever to its highest position.
    2. Lower the presser foot.
    3. Place a spool of thread and spool cap on the spool pin.
    4. Place the thread into the first thread guide at the top of the machine.
    5. Bring the thread down the right slot of the threading path, then around the tension dial. Push the thread tension release lever and pull the thread up so the thread is secure in the thread tension dial.
    6. Bring the thread up the left slot of the threading path and through the take-up lever from right to left.
    7. Bring the thread back down the left slot of the threading path and into the needle eye from front to back. (Clip the thread end with sharp scissors fro easier needle threading.)

    Raising the bobbin thread
    1. Make sure the presser foot lever is raised.
    2. Hold the end of the needle thread with your left hand. Turn the hand wheel toward you with your right hand until the needle goes down once and comes back up, stopping when the needle is at its highest position.
    3. Gently pull up on the needle thread. The bobbin thread, looped around the needle thread, will be drawn up through the needle hole.
    4. Push the thread tension release lever and pull about six inches of both the upper and lower threads toward the back of the machine, placing them under the presser foot.
