NO. Heavy duty thread jams in the pre-tension spring.

answer 2
When hemming jeans, it is always advisable (no matter which machine you are using) to be sure you have a heavy duty needle (at least a size 14) and appropriate thread. You should proceed at a safe speed and be sure to watch carefully the area where the side seams meet the new hem.
The Singer 2263 can hem your denim smoothly if you sew responsibly.

There is an arm that comes down and hook goes thou the eye of the needle. you hook your tread to it and it pulls it back through. I works really well as long as you have the right size needle and thread.

answer 2
You raise the needle to its highest position, then press a lever on the left side of the sewing mechanism to lower the auto-threader. While holding down the lever, the auto-threader swings behind/around the needle (with a notches on either side of the needle for the thread). Place thread horizontally from left to right as close to the needle as possible, through the notches, then release the lever. The needle is then threaded and you just have to pull out the excess from the loop that is formed.

The foot pedal comes with the machine.

P.S. Read the manual carefully for instructions on threading the tensor to sew, it is not threaded through the tensor knob on top for stitching like you would expect, it has separate hidden tensor plate under a rectangular piece of plastic below the knob that you use when stitching.

Question

bobbin winder will not release to wind bobbin singer model 2263

when I move bobbin winder into position to wind bobbin, the machine goes into a bind. when I move the bobbin wider back to the sew position the machine works fine, but I cannot wind a bobbin. something is catching when I put the bobbin winder in the wind position, that will not let the machine wind the bobbin. What can I do?

When you are going to wind the bobbin on the SINGER 2263, you need to make sure of 2 things:
1) The needle is in the highest position.
2) When you slide the the bobbin pin to the right, you need to be sure it 'snaps' all the way over into place to fully activate the bobbin winder.
If this does not help, please contact SINGER's Customer Support department at 800-474-6437 M-F from 8:30 - 4:00 CST or you can contact them at talktous@singerco.com.
