We have seen a lot of complaints from beginners stating that their singer sewing machine upper thread gets caught in bobbin. Well, it isnâ€™t really just limited to singer sewing machines, all of the sewing machines are prone to have this problem.
If you also have your top thread stuck in sewing machine from time to time, then donâ€™t worry, it isnâ€™t your machine, actually itâ€™s just a slight neglect you donâ€™t realize youâ€™ve been doing.
So, what causes this problem?
The most probable cause of the top thread stuck in sewing machine is that the bobbin is not wound properly. It may be loose or there may be a problem with the pickup.Â
So, thatâ€™s not such a big problem, is it?
The solution is pretty easy. Simply take the bobbin out. Check if it is wound properly. To do that, we all know that if we pull the thread, the bobbin should spin in the opposite direction. So, try that.
If you donâ€™t feel constant tension while pulling the thread, then indeed itâ€™s not wound properly. Anyhow, just rewind the bobbin and make sure you wind it tightly this time. Also, double check after placing the bobbin in its position by pulling again.

Beatrix Ainsley (Bea to her friends) is an abstract artist who was heavily inspired in her twenties by the abstract expressionist movement of the 1940s. Since then Bea has acquired three degrees in Science, Education and most importantly Fine Art. Her art works showcase exploring emotion and introspection of self. To achieve this – the use of bold, sweeping, intricate layers of color, and spontaneity of form is enhanced by reflecting on decades of life experiences. Bea has amassed a vast knowledge of art in all its forms, and hopes to pass it on with her contributions here.
