Question about Singer Tiny Serger TS380
I am going crazy .... I was sewing a straingt seam and the machine just stopped picking up the top thread , now it won't pick up the bottom thread from the bobbin. I have changed the needle, refilled the bobbin, rethreaded the machine top and bottom still won't pick up the thread and form a stitch.
HELP PLEASE !!!!!!!
if your machine's needle threads from front to back, make sure that the flat part of the needle shank points to the rear of the machine. If it threads from left to right, the flat side should face right, etc.

You can download a manual for $10 at www.sewingmanuals.com and it should help you. A couple of suggestions though, is your needle inserted correctly? Flat side facing the rear of the machine, fresh needle? Threaded correctly on top and bobbin area? Is your thread good not too old and the same type in bobbin and top? Did you leave a long enough tail in the bobbin thread? 3-4 inches which you hold with your left hand. Is the thread in the bobbin unwinding the right way? Are you turning the handwheel towards you, not away from you at least two revolutions or until you see the thread loop? Try these suggestions, and I am sure one will work unless your timing is off and it needs professional service.

Generally, this is because the needle
is inserted wrong or because it's bent. In the first case, the top
of the needle (called the shank) has a flat side-this has to be
inserted so it faces the back or away from you.
In the second case, when a bent needle stops the top thread from picking up the bobbin thread. Even if you think your needle is fine, change it to see if this solves the problem.
