    I have a Pfaff 483 industrial sewing machine. Can you tell me which direction the needle goes in using the long groove as a reference point? I'm also looking for a manual for this machine. Thank You, Bec

I need a video on how to thread a pfaff hobbylock 4842 serger


Pfaff has a video on threading the Hobbylock 4842 here: http://www.pfaff.com/mediafiles/threading_guide/index_en.html . You need Adobe Flash Player available on your browser. Enter the tutorial, the link is below the Quick Help paragraph. Then choose the correct machine (from the links across the top). Then use the drop-down menu to choose the stitch that you will be sewing for the appropriate threading video. Then click on the appropriate thread (below the video window) to see how to thread that section of the serger. (For two-thread stitches, you will see two options are greyed out.)

I hope this helps.

Pfaff hobbylock 4842 serger - how to thread


here is a manual:

PFAFF hobbylock 4842 Instruction Manual

Be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the machine. Also, thread each thread in the ORDER specified or your machine will most likely never stitch correctly (usually, the upper looper first, lower looper next, and then the needles).

Price of a hobbylock 4842


Difficult to say. Supposedly original new price was ~$700

However, if it is a used machine, so much is subjective based on physical and operating condition, the accessories included, desirability of the model, where it is located, etc.

Hobbylock 797 how to thread


The hobbylocks all thread in much the same fashion.  There is a diagram for a four thread hobbylock on this website.  It would be better if you found a Pfaff dealer to show you as it is quite complicated.

Once you have it threaded, always cut the old threads at the spool and knot new ones on and pull through.  You will have to thread the needles as the knots will not pass through but it does save an awful lot of frustration when needing new colours on the spools.

Need Manual, wife passed and I have no idea on how to thread or use the hobbielock 786


The hobbylock 786 is quite complicated to thread without visual help. Try and find a Pfaff dealer and take it in to them. They should be able to show you and help you though it.
I do not want payment for this.

Hi :) Just got a Hobbylock 788 and need to thread


Here is the trick: If you look at your thread spools, left to right, thread machine beginning with thread from spool 3, then 4, then 1, then 2.

Thread 4 is tricky. You must line up the purple line on the big wheel on the right end in order to do this. Thread the machine according to the diagram on the inside, then, making sure you lined up the purple line, push the lever at the bottom of the machine (below threading guides) to the left while holding on to the thread end. This will push the thread up and along the horizontal arm you just threaded.

I am looking for pfaff hobbylock 786 serger manual do you know where I can get one?


ISBN 0-8019-8192-1(hc)? or ISBN 0-8019-8191-3(pb) by Naomi Baker & Tammy Young - "Know Your Pfaff Hobbylock" covers Pfaff Hobbylock: 797, 786, 784, 783 - Great book. This book is more helpful since it has detailed info pics in color- 182 pgs, @$3.00. Lists parts, projects, etc. The 786 manual has errors, 35 pgs. not detailed as the book above. Good luck!
