View Full Version : Why Oh Why

Why does my thread keep coming off of my needle on my sewing machine? I was trying to sew last night and I had to thread the needle twice so I was just wondering what I was doing wrong or why it was happening, If anyone can answer my question that would be great, Thanks

Is the thread breaking? If so, it may be the tension on the machine set too tight.

Is it pulling out of the needle? Maybe you are cutting the thread too short? Try leaving a longer tail. (I know if I cut it too close, when I turn the knob, it pulls the thread back up through the needle).
