Kia Ora from NZ, My name is Jo and I am seeking some information on the Singer Concerto 3.

I have just bought a second hand singer concerto 3 and yes there is no manual. I downloaded a manual and although it seems like the same machine it does not contain the info on how to fill a empty bobbin of the above model. It has a self-winding bobbin that I have not got the foggiest of filling. I have read the blog that came up on this site on the internet.

I would appreciate some assistance, as I am keen to use what seems to be a lovely machine. Can anybody help me PLEASEEEEE.

Thank you.

Here is a link for older sewing machine manuals -- Perhaps the manual you own is one step above and they did away with that?

Sewing Machine Instructions

That said, most sewing machines are fairly easy to wind bobbins. I hope the Sewing Machine Instructions website has
ANY machine with a self-winding bobbin for help --

You can also post this on the Sewing Machine Forum thread (and get more answers :-)

Here is link where all they do is Talk about Sewing Machines! There is a thread just about Singers

Sewing Machine Forum


Good luck!!

In the USA, I think it's known as a Singer 9224 or 9217. I see the Singer USA website and a free download for it's instruction book here:

http://www.singerco.com/accessories/instruction-manuals

Go there and then put in 9224 for the search critera.

The winding of the bobbin part is on page 6 in there.

So pretty much you just put it in there, with the metal piece on the top, slide that door half closed, and wrap the free end of the thread sticking out of the needle around your pressure foot screw a few times and while still holding on to it, step on your foot control and hopefully it will start to wind the bobbin.

I think the main thing is to use the right bobbin. I guess you would almost call it a Touch and Sew kind of bobbin. But, there are a bunch different ones of them. I can tell yours though should have a little silver metal piece sticking out of the center top of the bobbin.

I have this very machine, known here in the US as a 9217. Here's what you do:
1) Thread the machine
2) Pull the bobbin door open all the way and insert the bobbin.
3) Slide the bobbin door shut to where it still stays open, but to where you don't have to push down the square metal button to close it.
4) Wind the thread (as it comes off the needle, toward the back of the machine, on the presser foot screw toward you, about 2 times (there should be a little rubber washer on the screw to hold the thread in place) and hold it with your hand
5) Run the machine a few moments; the thread should break.
6) Continue running the machine until the bobbin winds.
7) Close the bobbin door by pressing the metal button down and sliding the door shut
8) Begin sewing.

This is a great machine. I bought one new and sold it; regretted it until I found another recently.
