Simple solution could be needle is in backwards or is not the correct needle for your machine. Check that it is flat shank to the back firstly. Most machines take the 130/705 H system needles. However, industrial machines are the exception and usually take a different system needle, often no shank.

If the needle is fine, then the other possibility is that the machine's timing is out, ie the needle comes down to its lowest point as the hook assembly rotates around and catches the thread, bringing it up to form the stitch. If the machine timing is out, then this is often best attended to by a trained technician.

Trust this helps.

Thread not picking up the bottom thread


Remove the top thread from the machine.
Install a brand new needle.
ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread the top thread!

If it is still not picking up the bobbin thread, then the machine may be out of time. Search for sewing machine timing or take it for service.
Make sure the top tension is set appropriately--the default is the midway point and then tweak it for your particular machine.

Top thread not picking up bottom thread


Try installing a brand new needle. Bent or damaged needles sometimes do not contact the bobbin thread to pick it up.

Usually threading is not an issue, but you may want to rethread the machine (be sure to always RAISE the presser foot during threading).

If it still doesn't pick up the bobbin thread, most likely the needle/hook is out of time. Take it for service.

Machine saying to rethread the upper thread but not picking up bottom thread from bobbin. Constantly rethreaded upper thread still won't sew.


Consult the owner's manual to make sure it is threaded correctly. Install a brand new needle making sure it is installed properly. Also, be sure to RAISE the presser foot BEFORE threading the upper thread.

If it is still not picking up the bobbin thread, the machine may be out of time.

My brother pe150 embroidery machine does not pick up bottom thread and wont sew


try changing the needle
rethread the machine--use every thread guide
make sure the bobbin is not warped
make sure the bobbin is inserted correctly in the case
it's very possible that the timing of the machine is off & the machine would need to be checked at a sewing machine shop

Bottom thread not picking up for 4500 series,,,tried new needle.new bobin,new thread,,pliz help


The most common reason the bottom thread won't pick up is because the needle is inserted wrong. Check that the needle is inserted with the flat side of the needle shank is facing away from you.

Top thread doesn't pick up the bobbin thread (Toyota sewing m.)


Hi! This may sound silly, but if you changed your needle and put it in backwards (which is easy to do), the top thread won't pick up the bottom thread. Take your needle out and check the flat side of the needle shank--which way is it facing? With a lot of the newer machines, the flat side goes to the back, but check your manual to make sure.

Let me know if this helps, ok?

Happy Sewing!

Not picking up the bobbin thread


Make sure the needle is facing the right way. If it's in backwards it won't pick up the bobbin thread.
