Diana 560 Singer Sewing Machine

Help - I am trying to make my daughter's halloween costume and I can't find my manual for my Singer Diana 560 sewing machine. It's been sooo long since I have used it and I can't remember the proper way to wind/fill a bobbin (the proper sequence trail for the thread to go). Can you help me or is there place I can download all or parts of the manual for free. I don't want to buy a new manual as I know its around here somewhere but I don't have the time to search frantically or wait for a new manual to arrive.

Fill a bobbin: thread goes from spool, to front (nearest you) side of the tension post (the chrome cylindrical gadget about 3/8" diameter, with an upper and lower half - the thread slips in between the halves) on top left of the machine, clockwise around the post, then to the rear side of the bobbin and around it.

I would go to the Singer factory product support site, if there is a manual still out there it will be there. This site doesn't have it.

Threading up a bobbin in a singer 560 sewing machine

I'm guessing it's probably the same as mine (8280). This is what the manual says: "Hold the bobbin case with one hand, insert the bobbin so that the thread runs in a clockwise direction. Pull the thread through the **** and under the finger. Hold the bobbin case by the hinged latch and insert into the shuttle." It's hard to describe, but if you've sewn before, it should come back quickly. To be more specific, hold the bobbin case in your left hand, insert the bobbin so the thread is coming up from underneath, pull thread through the **** and into the part where the hole is. If you slide the thread around, it will fit into the slot in there. Pull the latch out and insert it into the shuttle.

Hope this helps.

Singer 626 Not sewing

First, give Mom all your Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.
Then, be sure the bobbin-winding function is not still engaged. Check it again, since on some machines, the mechanism has to be backed off until you hear a click, or until a light turns off. If that's done, check the tension on your top thread, since that's easier, then on your bobbin thread.
If the bobbin didn't get wound evenly (Like if you're hurrying) that will mess up its ability to let the thread flow out, so see if the thread on the bobbin looks as smooth as a new spool of thread.
I hope you got your costume together & had fun aside for that frustration. :^)
