Hi. Make sure you have at least 3 inches of thread pulled through the needle when you begin to stitch.

My singer 8500q will sew about 8 inches then the top thread breaks

Try this: Remove the top thread completely from the machine. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning.

The thread in the needle in My Brother JX2517 keeps coming out from the eye every time I try to sew. It does not break bot comes out of the needle. What is the cause and how do I fix it?

Pull more thread tail through the needle eye and hold the thread tail in your left hand when you begin the first couple of stitches. It also helps to have the needle at its highest point when beginning the first stitch.

200 thread breaking

1. The needle thread is not threaded properly
2. The needle thread tension is too tight
3. Needle is bent or blunt
4. The needle is incorrectly inserted into the needle holder
5. The needle thread and bobbin thread are not set under the presser foot before sewing
6. The thread is either too heavy or too fine for the needle
7. The needle is not the correct one for the fabric being sewed
8. Check for burrs on the needle plate

Keeping the thread in needle when you begin to sew

after threading the needle pull about 6" of thread out the back under the press foot
that way the thread is jammed under the foot and is held in place for the next thread
bobbin thread should also be out the back
when you have finished sewing then lift the foot and move the material sewed about 6"" away from the foot before cutting the threads

Needle won't remain threaded

make sure the thread has long thread tails of 4 to 6 inches long
and have the thread tails pulled behind the needle before starting
to sew.

My machine keeps clogging at the beginning of my sewing

Try these suggestions
1. Change the needle--use a needle that's for the fabric being sewed
2. Rethread the machine--top --make sure to use every thread guide
3. try a different bobbin--make sure bobbin is inserted correctly into the bobbin case, & make sure the bobbin is turned the correct way in the bobbin case
4. make sure the thread has not come off the thread take up lever
5. Clean under the needle plate & in the bobbin area for lint or threads

I was sewing on tshirt material (an actual tshirt) and the understitching was a mess of thread. I messed with tension and thread and bobbin and it finally started sewing correctly. Now I am trying to sew...

Go to and download a manual for free, also they have a lot of good tips on their website. I know some basics, make sure that you are not using old thread, and the right size needle for the job.

My thread often becomes unthreaded from the part that raises and lowers the needle causing the thread and fabric to jam up

Your needle should not come unthreaded in the middle of sewing.. if it does, it is because the thread breaks. this can be a simple tension problem or brittle thread.

if you are talking about at the beginning of sewing that the needle comes unthreaded, then you should just pull out 6-8 inches of thread through the needle before putting your fabric under and begin sewing.

i hop that helps.
