When you start sewing, make sure the thread is long enough so the machine does not pull the loose end down into the bobbin casing. It is best to drawn both threads (bobbin and top thread) up through the pressure plate before you place the fabric under the pressure foot.
are you sure you followed all steps? Make sure you followed the
threading diagram correctly. You must pull your thread through a hole in the bobbin,threading from the inside of the bobbin to the out side .hold the thread on the outside of the bobbin and wrap thread around the bobbin shank twice. Hold the thread in place and find the groove on the bobbins' outside then match that to the "wire" on the spindle of the winder. You will then disconnect the drive by turning the small knob inside the hand wheel. Next ,you will push the bobbin spindle against the small wheel to create traction to turn and fill the bobbin. My guess is that either the bobbin was not in place or you forgot to push the winder against the traction area. Happy sewing.
The most common reason I see for bobbin thread not being picked up is that the needle is in backwards. Or the needle is a little bent (sometimes it's so little you can't see it, but the machine knows!). So start by trying a new needle (size 80/12 is what's used for test sewing on most machines). If that doesn't work, turn the needle 180 degrees and try again -- there is a definite front and back to a sewing machine needle.
Make certain that your bobbins are the exact ones recommended for your machine. Many look similiar, but if they are off even slightly in depth, they will not work. Also, make certain your bobbin in locked into position in it's case and the thread is coming from the bobbin in the correct direction. When holding my metal bobbin in my hand, the thread pulls counter clockwise before placing it into my front loading bobbin case. Each machine is different so check your manual.
The problem is most likely thread tension. First try loosening the upper thread tension (numbered wheel on left side of most machines), if this doesn't rectify the problem then check the bobbin case tension. Correct bobbin case tension can be verified by holding the bobbin case with bobbin inserted and thread extended several inches. If you grasp the thread the bobbin case should not descend rapidly (fall) but should unspool slightly when thread is quickly tugged upward. Please refer to attached picture or your owner's manual.
Make sure your bobbin is placed in correctly. Thread is counterclockwise as you place bobbin in the metal piece. Pull thread end through sliver in metal piece. Hold on to movable metal latch then lock the bobbin in place. Bobbin should not fall out but is able to rotate. Rotate the wheel on the furthest right of your Singer 1507 machine towards you to move the needle downward. The top thread should then be able to catch and pull up the bobbin thread.
Loosen needle screw & insert needle with shank's flat side facing front of machine. Push needle in all the way, then tighten screw to hold needle in place.
Install a fully wound bobbin by loosening bobbin nut & placing bobbin on top. Re-attach bobbin nut & tighten. If standard thread spool will be used, then attach spool pin to bobbin shaft & place thread spool onto shaft. Attach white spool cap on end of thread spool, then tighten. Bobbin/spool should unwind facing forward toward needle.
Bring end of thread through thread guides & over tension control. Pass end of thread through needle eye, from back to front, & pull it out about two inches.
A spring pushes pressor foot onto fabric that is being sewn, so lift pressor foot & place fabric underneath.
Turn large handwheel on side of machine (handwheel can be turned in either direction) to raise needle arm to its highest position.
Holding the Handy Stitch in place with your right hand, press on power switch & begin sewing. Guide fabric (being sewn) with your left hand.
To end this sewing session, turn off power. Turn handwheel to raise needle to its highest position. Carefully pull out about three inches of thread through needle & snip, then lift pressor foot to remove fabric. Turn fabric over & loop needle threader through last stitch. Place end of thread from underside through eye of needle threader, & pull to loop through. Pull to tighten and snip end of thread.
Have installed your bobbin right? By this, I mean drop the bobbin in but make sure that you pull the thread through the tension spring by putting your finger to hold the bobbin in place, then pull on the thread to get the tension. Let me know if this works.
Place the bobbin flat on the table with the thread winding clockwise (comes off the top of the bobbin and points right).
Place the bobbin-case with the hole pointing up, insert the bobbin without changing directions.
Find the slot in the bobbin case, and pull the thread up and past the end of the spring until it clicks into place.
Insert the bobbin and bobbin case into the machine.
Thread the Needle, and give it about 6" extra thread past the needle, hold the thread taunt (from the needle) and rotate the handwheel (top comes toward you), after a turn or 2, gently pull the thread from the needle and lift up the bobbin thread from the slot.
1. Remove the bobbin case
2. Release the clutch by pulling out the handwheel
3. Draw the thread from the spool andguide the thread throught the hole in the bobbin from the inside to the outside
4. Put the bobbin on the bobbin spindle
5. Push the bobbin to the right
6. Hold the free end of the thread and depress the foot control, wind until full
7. Push the handwheel in (to wngage the clutch)
8. Push the bobbin spindle back tot he left to resume sewing mode.
9. Place the bobbin in the bobbin case (thread should feed clockwise)
10. Draw the thread through the slot in the bobbin case
11. Continue to draw the thread under the tension spring and through the opening Pull out about 4"' of thread
12. Holding the latch open position the bobbin case into the shuttle and release the latch
13. Case should lock into place when released
