Why won’t my machine pick up the bobbin thread? … Also, make sure your bobbin is in correctly (not backwards) and that the upper tension disks of your machine are threaded correctly. Make sure the presser foot is up when seating the thread through the upper tension. Now, it’s time to draw up your bobbin thread.
A: Looping on the underside, or back of the fabric, means the top tension is too loose compared to the bobbin tension, so the bobbin thread is pulling too much top thread underneath. By tightening the top tension, the loops will stop, but the added tension may cause breakage, especially with sensitive threads.
Why won’t my sewing machine make a stitch?
There are several possible reasons for your machine to skip stitches. First, check that your needle is installed correctly, not bent or otherwise damaged, and that you’re using the right type of needle for your project. … Re-thread your machine, both top and bobbin threads, and test.
Sewing machines need an upper and a lower thread to form the stitches. The lower thread is kept in a small bobbin stored underneath the presser foot. … If that’s not your case, you’re going to have to pull the end of the thread through the little pinhole on top of the bobbin.
Do you thread the bobbin through the needle?
Thread from the spool goes through the needle’s eye. Thread from the bobbin comes up through the needle plate.
Does the thread go over or under presser foot?
Once you’ve threaded the needle, put the thread straight back (but not under the presser foot). Keep the presser foot up, and note that the thread should be fairly easy to pull.
