Question about Sewing Machines
How should I wind bobbin correctly?
It is important that the bobbin be wound smoothly for the machine to operate properly. First, check that you are threading the machine correctly to wind the bobbin. There is a tensioner for the bobbin winder that helps wind the bobbin smoothly so incorrect threading will cause issues. Also, try to wind your bobbin slower. There is no advantage to winding the bobbin on high speed.
If you continue to have bobbin winding issues, there is a standalone bobbin winder (SideWinder) avlb at JoAnn's or even Amazon for ~$30,. They are electric or battery operated. Be sure to verify your machine bobbins will work on the SideWinder before purchasing as some bobbins are not compatible. The bobbin winder is a handy gadget since multiple bobbins can be wound quickly, plus bobbins can be wound without having to unthread the machine, not to mention reducing the wear and tear on your sewing machine.

It sounds like you don't have any tension on the thread when winding the bobbin. Make sure that you are running the thread through the tension disc on the top of the machine before going to the bobbin winder.

SOURCE: Bobbin is not winding correctly
slide plate may be worn - i had the same problem. try holding down the center of the bobbin with a pin while slide plate is in the winding position.

I just figured out why my bobbine was winding on shaft instead of on the bobbin. first of all make sure the bobbin is setting up high enough, top of bobbin needs to be a fraction higher then the bobbin shuttle, next check to make sure there are no burrs on the bobbin, then make sure that the thear is catching in the groove (**** in top) of the bobbin. In order to get mine to wind i had to lett the tread go down and then slip the thread in the groove. also remember to leave the pressure foot up do not put it down. let me know if this helps.

SOURCE: bobbin won't wind correctly!!
Iam very picky about my bobbins!
make sure you are threading the machine for the bobbin correctly, In my opinion I don't think any machine really winds well.
What I do is hold the thread about an 1" away from the bobbin. start to wind and I guide the thread slowly up and down the bobbin so that it winds even

You can take the machine in for service or purchase a Sidewinder Bobbin Winder.
Service begins around $60 plus parts and the Sidewinder is less than $30.
