Your question: Why is my needle not catching the bobbin thread?

How do you get the bobbin thread to catch a singer?

Hold the needle thread. Turn the hand wheel slowly towards you to lower and raise the needle. Gently pull the needle thread to pull up the bobbin thread. Pull both threads towards the back of the machine.

How does a needle grab the bobbin thread?

Raise the presser foot and the needle to their highest positions. With your left hand, hold the end of the upper thread. With your right hand, turn the balance wheel toward you (counterclockwise) until the needle moves down and back up again to its highest position.

Why does the bobbin thread bunch up on the bottom?

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.
