Generally, this is because the needle is either inserted incorrectly or because it's bent. Even if it doesn't look bent, it can be ever so slightly that you can't even see it with the naked eye. See if changing the needle corrects the problem, and be sure to insert the needle with the flat side of the shaft facing away from you.

Good luck, Linda!

I received a 221 singer feather light as a gift.... Love using old machines. It will not pick up the bobbin thread. When it cycles the top thread hangs up and breaks.


Lucky you!

First thing to always try is a brand new needle. A lot of sewing machine problems are due to an old, dull, bent needle.

Most likely the machine has been knocked out of time--the needle and hook are out of sync. Search for sewing machine timing or take it or service.

Having trouble picking up the thread from the bobbin


Try a brand new needle. Verify that the machine is threaded properly--both upper and bobbin threads.

If it is still not picking up the bobbin thread, it is likely there is a needle/hook timing issue requiring service.

The bobbin thread will not pick up. How do I fix it?


First, install a brand new needle and verify that it is facing the correct way and it is the proper needle for your machine.

Confirm the bobbin has been installed in the bobbin case so it is unwinding the bobbin the proper direction as you pull the bobbin thread.

Six Common Sewing Machine Problems Solved

If it still will not pick up the bobbin thread, open the bobbin area of the machine and watch the needle action as you hand-turn the handwheel. You may see why it is not picking up the thread because the needle could be arriving too soon or too late to intercept the bobbin thread. If this is happening, the needle/hook is out of time. Take it for service.

The bobbin thread won't pick up


this is all i can find out for you so not sure if this will help you out.
If it is not in the correct position, the needle will not go down and pick-up your bobbin thread. ... Also, make sure your bobbin is in correctly (not backwards) and that the upper tension disks of your machine arethreaded correctly. Make sure the presser foot is upwhen seating the thread through the upper tension.
