I had a bobbin breakdown yesterday.  If there is one thing a sewer cannot stand, it's bobbin problems.  The thread in the back gets all tangled and sometimes you have no idea what is going on until you've gone several inches.  It's completely obnoxious and frustrating.

After doing some research, it seems like the front bobbin loaders (which is what I have) are much more difficult than the top loaders.  You have to make sure the thread is going the correct direction before you place the bobbin in the machine.  All sorts of things could go wrong and cause problems.

Singer has an excellent resource for troubleshooting and basic operating instructions, including how to properly load a bobbin.

  1. Ah yes... the bobbin thread going in the right direction. I recall trying to remember how to do that. But that was in the day when we didn't have websites. We only had manuals, home ec teachers, Moms and 4-H leaders. Ha.
    Glad you are enjoying the sewing machine...
    Nice blog, Alexis.


Your comments make my day even brighter and happier than it already was. I just love hearing what you have to say!
