Question

I'm told I need a free-motion foot to make a quilt

I do not know what a free motion foot is or whether the machine already has one. I have been using this machine for a few months now and love it but would like to try a quilt.

Whatever foot you get is NOT going to stay attached. This machine has a serious design flaw in that the pressure foot pops off.

Hi Knitalife: Katie B. here with SINGER. A darning & embroidery foot will do what you need to make a quilt. You'll want to use the darning plate that comes with this machine in order to do free motion sewing for quilting. The darning & embroidery foot is an optional accessory that can be purchased separately elsewhere.

Faith,
You better contact us at 1800-4SINGER (1800-474-6437), M-F, 8:00 – 4:00 CST to discuss this problem. There should not be a spring in the bobbin case. If you were disassembling the bobbin winding area then that needs to be reviewed also.

Play your DVD again...
threading the bobbin..........remove empty bobbin from holder....sounds like you succeeded in removing bobbin 'holder' from area under footplate...lifting up and twisting slightly..then pulling forward and out....putting in your new filled-with-thread bobbin and following DVD pictures...it takes patience to put it back in, seating it...I recall, twisting to the left slightly but will engage and lock back in. Then following DVD to lower upper thread to engage with bobbin thread, lifting needle, allowing bobbin thread to come up...see DVD....study each aspect of DVD....it's a life saver! You can do it!. This machine is an excellent product. If I've been incorrectlyt seeing a problem..and you've done the above...make certain your threaded bobbin is placed CORRECTLY in the holder, with thread brought CORRECTLY through tension area or NOTHING will happen up above when you continue.....

Yes, the machine has the reverse feature. It is the small blue lever on the front of the machine, closest to the sewing mechanism. Press and hold down while sewing to engage, release to continue sewing forward.

Check your bobbin ... I suspect that is your problem..

The bobbin's steel case has a tension adjustment. It is a small screw that you can use the included tool or a screwdriver to adjust. To test the bobbin thread tension, remove the bobbin case and hold it by suspending the thread. If the tension is correct, the thread should unwind an inch or two. If the tension is too loose, it will drop too much; too tight, it won't unwind at all. Seems for most people, right out of the box it is set to very loose..needs to be adjusted before use.

Question

Model no.2263

I've seen all the bad reviews and this machine seems to be doing all the things that mine that needs to be replaced is doing. I do not understand thread tension and may have mine all messed up. All I really need is straight stitch and zig zag, extra stitches would be good but not necessary. I like the removable arm and most of all the machines automatic thread's. My eyes are bad and that would help so much. Oh a reasonable price and factory warranty is always important. What do I need to look at?

I am not a expert seamstress by any means, but when my Europro was giving me fits with tension I finally bit the bullet and bought this one. I love it! I have had it since April 2013. I use it frequently. I have not had one bit of trouble with it so far. Tension has never given me an issue so far either. I never could get the hang of the needle threader with the other machine but was able to get it on the first try with this Singer. I am not sure why some other have given it bad reviews. I think for the price and for what it does, you can't go wrong. It sews beautifully.

The Singer 2263 is made for use in North America if purchased there. The wiring is designed for the 110V home wiring that is used in the US and Canada. Also, if you take the machine out of the country it will void your warrantee.
It is recommended that if you intend to use a sewing machine in another country, you purchase your machine there.
