Singer toy sewing machine question

Posted by philanna273 (My Page) on

Hi, I have a Singer Sewhandy toy electric sewing machine model 50D. I was hoping to get some information here. I now have the needle inserted so as to thread from front to back. I had it sewing by just turning the hand wheel without the electric, and it had a nice chain stitch for a few inches and now the thread just lays on top of the fabric. Can't remember how I had the needle inserted when I first started. [senior thing] I can see that the hook isn't picking up the thread. I tried a few adjustments but nothing seems to work. Are there manuals or instruction books for this machine and am I threading it correctly? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Phyllis

I have one of those and one of the handcrank ones, but I have them packed up. Have you tried the needle so that it threads from the side. The only other thing I can think of is the needle could be too long or short.
Your's is cute as a button.

I agree with Susan,it may thread from the sides.That is how it was done way back when.

Hi,

I bought one of these toy Sewhandy Singers (model 50D) at an antique store. Mine has a manual that states that before you begin to thread the machine be sure that the sew lever (the little lever on the right by the "on" button) and the presser bar lifter are down. Raise the needle to its highest position by turning the hand wheel slowly by hand toward the back. Then it says, "Thread the needle from left to right. Pull about three inches of thread through the eye of the needle."

At the back of the manual it says "To change needle: When your needle becomes blunt or bent, change it right away. Loosen the screw and pull out the old needle. Insert a new needle with the flat side toward the left, push it up as far as it will go, and then tighten the screw as shown." It also shows the needle with the notation Cat. 1113, Class 24 x 3, Size 11.

Hope this helps.

I just bought one of these machines at a sale. The manual did not come with it. Does this machin have a bobbin?? How does it work? Any info would be very helpful!!
Thank you,

Wow, this brings back memories! I had one as my first sewing machine at about age 7. My mother did not sew at all, except hems, and I taught myself to sew starting on this little machine. It does not use a bobbin and sews a chain stitch. I spent many hours sewing all kinds of things on my toy Singer.

I bought one of these Singer Sew Handy Model 50D sewing machines for my granddaughter. Unfortunately, I need sewing machine needles size 24 x 3 style #1113 and a spool pin. Does anyone know where I can find them? Thanks, Jeanne

You may want to look at page http://www.singersewinginfo.co.uk/toys/24x3/ which tells all about the 24x3 needle for the Sewhandy 50D and how to use a substitute. I tried it on mine and it works perfectly.

Here is a link that might be useful: singer 24x3 needles
