When you're embroidering, ALWAYS have the tension set on "E." Unfortunately with a Singer, you will always have bobbin thread pulling thru to the top-I found this out from a technician a few years ago who also serviced Vikings and Husqvarna's. He went through a lot to show and explain it to me, but suffice it to say that with a Singer you need to use the same thread in the bobbin as on top when you're embroidering-it's simply a flaw with their machines.

The bird's nest could be a number of problems, but first we need to be sure you're setting your tension set on "E". If you are, leave me a comment back and we'll go through some specific steps to take about the bobbin. Otherwise, correct you're tension setting and see if that corrects the bird's nest problem. If not, again, leave me another comment back and leave me any details you can as to the type of material your embroidering on, the thread you're using, etc. It may seem like a pain, but you'd be surprised how fussy the littlest thing can be. I check in daily, so I'll get back to you within 24 hours. I've used my CE100 for 4 years and have mastered it quite well, so I feel confident that I'll be able to help you.

Why doesn't the bobbin thread low message show (although setting on 2) and machine doesn't stop when no bobbin thread?


Um, why would the technician only do half the job???

Could be that the bobbin sensor is dirty. Most likely covered with lint or loose thread.

My bobbin thread keeps coming to the top of my fabric during embroidering on my Singer Futura CE350, I've tried bobbin embroidery thread, regular embroidery thread and clear nylon thread, I've tried...


With the embroidering, some of the bobbin thread is SUPPOSED to show on the top of your embroidery-the machine isn't doing anything incorrectly. You'll need to thread your bobbin with the same thread as you are using with the top. I had the same "problem" when I first got the machine and took it to a wonderful local technician whose helped me with a lot of things who informed me that this is perfectly normal on embroidery machines.

My Brother SE270D keeps jamming up and getting thread all tangled up The feed is not advancing either.


Make sure you are using 60 weight bobbin thread only in the bobbin, also make sure you are using only SA156 ( SFB-XA5539-151) bobbins, the size 156A are not for this machine. I have used Singer size 15J bobbins with no problem. The bobbin should have slightly rounded ends, not flat like a regular bobbin. This helps the thread over the bobbin at high speeds.

I threw my machine out of time the first three times I used it for embroidery and decorative stitches. Had I read the manual, I'd have known to use 60 wt bobbin thread. I have also used 90 wt with no problems...60 wt is what comes with the machine.

If you have to take the machine in for service, make sure to take sample of the problem and the embroidery unit, thread you used, etc. Take it all and tell them to test it all.

My Brother dealer felt these Disney machines were great little workers..and said they are not hard to repair...some dealers don't know enough about how to repair the thread cartridge, so tell you the machine is not worth repairing. It is...I've had mine for 4 years.

Hope this helps some. You may have to take the machine in to be timed / cleaned...once that's done and you are using proper thread and bobbins (upper thread - you can use any, bobbin it's 60wt)...you will love your machine.

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.

When I sew with the regular portion of my Designer One, all is fine. I've been using the embroidery attachment and when I embroidery a simple design, the top looks great, but the bobbin thread is sooo taut...


The bobbin tension sounds ok if regular sewing is ok. The upper tension unit may be the culprit in that there are loose threads or fluff causing the discs not to tighten enough for embroidery. The best solution is to have it serviced by an authorized husqvarna viking dealer. You can locate a dealer near you by visiting the husqvarna viking website and clicking on the Dealer link on the left-hand side of the page - http://www.husqvarnaviking.com
Good luck.

Once I set up my design card and select design, the needle moves


Hi, and welcome to FixYa. If I understand your problem, the needle goes in and out of your fabric, and the embroidery hoop moves, but the machine does not actually start embroidering your design right away....did I get it right? If have time to answer a few questions, I can give more accurate instructions.

  1. How long have you had your machine?
  2. How long have you been doing machine embroidery?
  3. Do you have a manual for your machine?
  4. Look at the back side of your design - do you see lots of bobbin thread, or hardly any?
  5. Have you taken lessons for your machine or for embroidery?
  6. When your design is finished, can you where the machine skipped stitches?
Here a couple of things you can try (if you have already):

  • Make sure you use an embroidery needle, not a universal. In most cases, you should use a size 90. Change your needle after each project. A blunt need can cause your machine to skip embroidery stitches anywhere in the design.
  • Rewind or replace your bobbin. Make sure you use bobbin thread in your bobbin when you embroider - it is thinner and gives you better tension. If pre-wound embroidery bobbins are compatible with your machine, I recommend that you try one and compare the result with designs sewn using the bobbin thread you've been using.
  • Normally, you should loosen your tension a little bit when you embroider. When you look at the back side of your embroidery, you should see more bobbin thread than embroidery thread.
I owned an embroidery business for several years, and I have six different embroidery machines of my own - so with a little more info from you, I think I can help.

Bernina Deco 650 Top thread is winding around the bobbin


You should use some klnd of stabilizer under your hoop. I use the paper kind which is thin or there is a heavier tear away stabilizer. I have used all cotton thread for embroidery or you can use rayon. There is a finer thread called bobbin thread for the bobbin but I gernerally use the same as on the top so it will be the same. Are you using an embroidery needle? .As for your thread getting wound around the bobbin the only thibng I can think of is tht it is threaded incorrectly. if it isn't the lack of a stabilizer. I hope this helps but I think it the the lack of stabilizer that is causingyour problems. The needle is going in and our of the same hole during embroidery and is getting stuck on your bobbin. Let me know if this helps! Suz

Bernina Bernette 600 Deco embroidery machine


It could be that there is a loose piece of thread, or some fluff which is obstructing the tension gauge. Try blowing around the theading area (or even run the hoover pipe near it to see if you can **** it out). I cleared mine by folding a piece of non fluffy material and rubbing gently between the tension dial and machine.

Good luck

Machine embroidery


You should always use proper Bobbin Thread for embroidery - not a bobbin wound from regular dressmaking thread. You are right, the special bobbin thread is thinner so that the embroidery thread will be pulled to the underside and you get a nice shiny embroidery on top with no bobbin showing through. Wind yourself 6 or more bobbins at a time of bobbin thread to always have some on hand, or buy the pre-wound L size ones.
All embroidery machines - no matter what brand - recommend using bobbin thread for embroidery. It is readily available at all sewing stores, probably even Spotlight would carry some. If you get stuck for a supply, try overlocker thread.
