Hi there,

Well you may please follow the steps below -
1. Remove the bobbin from the sewing machine. Note: whether you have a drop-in, front or side-loading bobbin on your sewing machine. A drop in bobbin will load from the top, may be via a removable bobbin case cover near the machine-fed dogs. A side or front loading bobbin needs to be loaded into a removable bobbin case under the machine.
2. Choose the right size bobbin for the sewing machine.
3. Wind thread onto your bobbin. Your sewing machine should have a standard thread spool to hold the thread and a short, squat post wide enough for a bobbin.
4. Put the thread and empty bobbin into position on your sewing machine. Wrap the thread around the bobbin to start it. On most machines, disengage the needle by turning the smaller hand-wheel on the machine toward you. Push the bobbin post into position, securing the bobbin into place. Press gently down. Thread should begin to wind neatly onto your bobbin.
5. Break the thread, push the bobbin post back into an inactive position and remove the bobbin. Tighten the hand-wheel. Thread your sewing machine again if necessary before loading the bobbin.
6. Remove the bobbin case cover and put the bobbin into position. The thread should slide through a catch on the bobbin case and up through the cover.
7. Access the bobbin case for a front or side mount bobbin. Lift the catch and remove the removable bobbin holder. Put the bobbin into the holder and run the thread through the holder, bringing it to the front. Lift the catch and slide the bobbin holder back into the case. Hold your needle thread gently forward with your left hand and turn the hand-wheel. The needle thread will pass down into the machine and catch a loop of the bobbin thread. Pull this loop up and slide both threads to the back before beginning to sew.
Good Luck!!

Thanks for using FixYa!!

I have a Baby Lock Audrey. The bobbin thread is "nesting". I have tried rewinding the bobbin and rethreading the needle and bobbin thread but that hasn't helped.


Check that it is actually the bobbin thread that is nesting. Generally, bobbin thread issues appear on the top of the fabric and upper thread issues appear on the underside of the fabric.

If it is in fact the bobbin thread, the bobbin thread tension may be off or malfunctioning.

If it is the upper thread nesting under the fabric:
1. Remove the thread
2. Install a brand new needle
3. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot. This releases the thread tension so the thread will seat properly.
4. Rethread from the beginning and check the thread path is correct.
5. Set the upper tension at the midway point.
6. Check that the bobbin thread is loaded properly
7. Retest the machine.

If it continues to create thread nests under the fabric, tighten the upper tension.

Bobbin thread breaks off once i start sewing


Hmm, sounds like maybe there is a rough spot on the bobbin case or hook that is snagging the thread. Could also be the bobbin tension is too tight or it is broken. Also, check to make sure the bobbin is loaded the correct direction in the bobbin case and threaded through the bobbin tension properly.

Bobbin threat loose


Make sure you have threaded the machine properly--which usually involves removing the thread and rethread from the beginning. Make sure to RAISE the presser foot before threading the upper thread. Check that the bobbin is loaded in the bobbin case and it is threaded properly.

Used machine recently but now no matter how carefully i load everything, bobbin pops out and thread tangles


Check that you have put the bobbin in the correct way. check that it is the correct bobbin for that machine and you could also check that the bobbin has been wound properly. If you load your bobbin up with different threads and not let if fill with only one thread you can have problems. Also clean out the bobbin area sometimes a bit of fluff can be caught in the bobbin area. cheers Dot

Machine won't stitch


If by "won't stitch" you mean that the top thread will not pick up the bottom thread, make sure you have the needle threaded properly. If the machine is a top loading bobbin, the thread goes in the needle from front to back. Same if it's a side loading bobbin (bobbin faces you as you sew). If it's a front loading bobbin (bobbin faces left of machine), the thread goes in the needle from left to right.

I have a 8763 that I just purchased last week. I have now tried to load the bobbin by the book, it still won't load the bobbin properly and it won't sew. What can I do now?


take the machine back and get them to show you have to do the bobbin and then if they can't get the machine bobbin to load, tell them you want another one..
I've been sewing for over 25 years, and that's what I'd do

Bernina 135 bobbin winds unevenly


If you are finding that the bobbin is winding with more thread towards one edge of the bobbin than the other, the bobbin winder motor needs to be adjusted so that the angle of the winder shaft is properly aligned with the tension disc next to the head cover. Unfortunately, unlike many of the other models, you have to remove the covers on the Activa range to get at the adjuster. There is a spring-tensioned screw just to the left of the bobbin winder motor that adjusts the angle of the motor and therefore how it loads the bobbin. If the winder is loading the bobbin with most of the thread towards the bottom edge, the screw should be turned clockwise and if most towards the top, it should be turned anticlockise. Make adjustments until the thread is winding evenly or, at least, towards the centre of the bobbin.

If you are finding that your bobbin is being loaded somewhat randomly, make sure you are using the vertical spool holder to hold the spool and that you've got a foam pad under the thread spool. Route the thread through the thread guide before winding around the tension disc in the correct direction (see the arrow on the case) and ensure that the spool and thread do not vibrate unduly when the bobbin is being wound. If you let the spool vibrate whilst the bobbin is loading, it may result in varying tension on the thread and uneven winding onto the bobbin.

I just loaded the bobbin and when I sew the bobbin thread is wavy Is it a tension problem or did the bobbine not load properly or do I have the bobbin in wrong?


Do you mean that the thread on the underside of the stitching is wavy? if so, yes it sounds as if the bobbin thread is not under tension.

Take the bobbin out of the bobbin case and reload, make sure that the bobbin is in the right way and then hold the bobbin still and press the thread tail into the tension spring until you hear it click in. Usually the thread will come off the bobbin, through the tension then reverse direction in a "v" shape.
tally_girl_43.jpgI think this is your bobbin case. So bobbin would go in and rotate anticlockwise, and thread would go into the tension spring south, then reverse direction north so rotary hook catches the thread.

Just make sure thread is fully into the tension spring, pull backwards on it and it should stay in the tension device if its in properly. If not, it will come out.

If you can't get a resolution then the tension spring may have failed, you can buy replacment bobbin cases from Brother, a local dealer or
http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/bobbin-case-babylock-bernina-brother-riccar-x59802101.aspx

I trust this helps you resolve the issue, often its just threading up and a bit of a break away for five mins, then fresh eyes, rethread carefully, checking the manual directions, and issue will resolve.

The bobbin is not preforming properly. It jumps around when I sew and then on the back of the fabric there is a ton of excess thread.


Change needle
Clean under needle plate where feed dogs are for lint
Clean bobbin area for lint or loose threads
Rethread machine top thread make sure to get every thread guide
& bobbin
Check tension 3 or 4 is usually good

if the bobbin is top loading they will flop around some when the start getting close to empty
if it's a bottom loading bobbin & case then it's not inserted correctly
