On and Off Button
To turn on the Singer Heavy-Duty Sewing Machine, locate the on/off button and switch it to the on position. The light will turn on, indicating that the machine is ready to use. If the light doesn’t turn on, check to make sure that the plug is connected to the outlet and the machine is properly plugged in.
The needle control is used to control the needle’s movement. Turn the wheel to control the needle manually, or use the pedal to control it automatically.
To place the bobbin, locate the bobbin holder and insert the bobbin. Make sure the thread is properly wound and the bobbin is clicked to the right.
To thread the machine, follow the guide and insert the thread through the designated areas. Make sure the thread is properly looped and tensioned.
The tension button is used to adjust the tightness of the stitches. The higher the number, the tighter the stitches will be. Adjust the tension according to the fabric you’re using.
The needle position can be adjusted to be all the way to the left, in the middle, or all the way to the right. Adjust the needle position depending on the type of stitch you want to create.
The Singer Heavy-Duty Sewing Machine comes with different stitch options. Choose the stitch option you want to use and adjust the length and width accordingly.
The reverse button is used to back tack when sewing. Press the button to sew backwards and reinforce the stitches.
That’s it for the basic functions of the Singer Heavy-Duty Sewing Machine. With these functions, you can start creating your own projects and designs. Remember to always refer to the manual for more detailed instructions and troubleshooting tips. Happy sewing!

Winding Up the Bobbin
To wind up the bobbin, start by taking the little bobbin and placing it on the machine. Make sure it is pushed in all the way down.
Then, take your thread and slip it through the small hole at the top of the bobbin. Next, take the thread and loop it around the metal part located on the top of the machine.
Once you have done that, bring the thread down to the bobbin and start twisting it in. Twist it around ten times or so, and then cut off any excess thread. The most important thing to remember when winding up the bobbin is to make sure that the bobbin winder is clicked to the right.
When you press the pedal, the machine will start winding up the bobbin. It will slow down and struggle a bit when it’s done. Once it’s done, cut the thread and take everything out so you can start fresh.
To insert the bobbin, open the clear cover and push the black square to the right. This will open the bobbin case. Place the bobbin inside the case, making sure that the tail is to the right.
Then, pull the thread under the silver plate in the middle and place it under the little hook.
Turn the wheel on the side of the machine towards yourself, and the needle will go down and pick up the bobbin thread. Pull on the needle thread to bring out the bobbin thread, and you’re good to go. Put the case back on, and you’re ready to start sewing.
Threading the Machine
To begin threading the Singer Heavy-Duty Sewing Machine, start by inserting the thread through the first guide located on the top of the machine. Then, take the thread down and through the second guide, making sure to bring it around the tension dial.
The tension dial controls how tight the thread will be when it comes out of the needle. I like to keep mine at around three, but you may need to adjust it depending on the fabric you are using.
After threading the tension dial, bring the thread down and through the third guide, which is located on the front of the machine. From there, loop the thread around the take-up lever, which is a small metal hook located on the left side of the machine.
Once the thread is looped around the take-up lever, bring it down and through the fourth guide, which is located just above the needle.
Next, thread the needle by taking the end of the thread and putting it through the eye of the needle. You can use a needle threader if you have trouble threading the needle by hand.
Once the thread is through the needle, pull it through until there is a tail of about six inches hanging from the needle.
Finally, wind the bobbin by placing a spool of thread on the spool pin and then taking the end of the thread and looping it around the bobbin winder tension disc. From there, insert the end of the thread into the hole on the bobbin and push the bobbin onto the bobbin winder spindle.
Press down on the foot pedal to wind the bobbin. Once the bobbin is full, cut the thread and remove the bobbin from the spindle.
With the bobbin wound and the machine threaded, you are now ready to start sewing. Remember to adjust the stitch length and width as needed for your project, and to always test your stitches on a scrap piece of fabric before sewing your final project.
