Bobbin goes under the door of the needal, the thead come out from the right to the left, thead goes in the first edge and up and out of the left, you need the needal to be treaded, turn the round right know till the needal goes in and out , pull the tread up and out together.

Just borrowed a friends machine but no instructions for threading cotton from top to needle and how to put in spool.Have got thread on spool.Just need to sew a basic hem


You haven't said what mail and model machine this relates to.

You could try http://sewing.about.com/od/sewingmachineindex/tp/operatingasewingmachine.htm, there is lots of good general information there which might be of help, most machines have similar functionality, ie a bobbbin goes into a rotary hook and there will be a tension spring on that thread. Top thread will also need to go through tension device, usually discs in the threading path from spool to needle.

There is usually a stitch length and stitch width dial/knob/digital selection and a stitch selector for different utility stitches such as blind hem, overcasting etc. If you just want a straight stitch, then stitch length would be 2.5 or 2.7 maybe for a heavy fabric.

You need to put in the correct sized needle for the fabric you at sewing too, http://sewing.about.com/od/sewingmachineindex/ig/Sewing-Machine-Needles/

Important thing is threading up so that both threads are under tension, make sure the pressure foot is raised during threading so the top thread can go between the tension discs. The bobbin will either be drop in top loading in which case you need to click the thread into a tension spring on the side of the bobbin holder. Or front loading bobbin inside a removeable bobbin case which is mounted vertically. The bobbin case will also have a tension spring on it.

Also you could try You-tube - there is lots of videos there for different brands.

I have borrowed my Mother's Singer Machine # 1022 to finish a project. I have never used this model before. The bobbin threads are way to loose, which dial adjusts the bobbin tension? Also, what is the...


First check if the top thread tension is too tight. Make sure that there are no burs or other damage on the needle. Next check for lint or bits of thread between the bobbin case sections. Remove the bobbin and run a small screw driver or needle between the two silver plates on the top of the bobbin case.

Check if the machine is sewing properly before trying this next step. Find the right hand screw on the side of the black bobbin case. Make sure that this set screw is tight. Turn it clockwise. Next find the left hand screw on the bobbin case. Turn the screw 1/8 turn clockwise to tighten. Test the thread tension. If the bottom thread is still loose, turn this screw another 1/8 of a turn. Test the tension again. Do not over-tighten the screw. This can damage the bobbin case. Some sewing machine parts stores do have a replacement bobbin case available. One source is http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/singer-1022-sewing-machine-parts.aspx .

The dial with 0 F 1 2 3 4 controls the stitch length. Use the 0-1 position for zig zag Satin stitch (At 0, these stitches are very close together). Position 4 will give a longer stitch for basting. See page 4 of the manual (page 8 of the PDF) listed below. In the center of this dial is the reverse button.

Most Singer manuals are available here: http://www.singerco.com/support/instruction-manuals . The direct link to the manual for the 1022 is http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/62d051dd5c881663ac19c0a587e679184d936b18.pdf .

I hope this helps.

The bobbin winder on the top of the machine might need to be pushed the other way . It could be in the winding position. hope this helps

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. :^)

Needle will not go up or down


Make sure the bobbin winder is off.
Remove the thread and turn the handwheel to see if it is free. Check the bobbin and hook area to see that there is no thread locked around something. If there is , remove it and try it by hand again. If this doesn't solve your problem, talk to ***********-in-law and let her know about the problem. She may have had the same problem earlier and if not she can tell you where to take it for service. I don't think this is a serious problem that should entail a lot of expense.Don't try to hide the problem as this will upset her a lot more when it comes out as you know it will.

It sounds like you may have uneven tension between the bobbin thread and the upper thread. You can adjust the tension via a screw on the bobbin case. Turn it clockwise to tighten the bobbin thread tension and counter clockwise to reduce it. It's also worth remembering to check the tension on the presser foot for the material you are using. Check also that the shuttle race is clear of lint etc. Hope this helps
