Introduction: Threading the ITP Singer 534 Stylist

We've added a classic singer 534 to the shop so y'all beginners don't have to wrestle with the Juki. Here is a guide on how to thread it.

P.S. the pressure foot should be up before you start!

Step 1: Place the Thread on the Spool Pin (over the Felt)

Notice that the tread is coming out underhanded, i.e. down the right side and across the bottom

Step 2: Work It Throught the Tension System

This one is the trickiest. Slide it into the silver hook from the top (picture 1) and then down around and up the metal latch on the right hand side of the tension knob, laying the thread on the right hand side of the knob (picture 2). Then lay the thread down on the left hand side... pulling down the springy silver loop as you go and hooking the thread under the other metal latch on the left hand side. Release the tension a little and you will see the spring pop up again. (pictures 3 thru 5)

Step 3: Slip Down Past the Clip and Up Into the Lever Arm...

The lever arm should be in it's highest position. You can get it there by turning the hand wheel on the right hand side of the machine. You don't need to thread the lever arm, it is built like a hair pin with the opening in the back, almost inside the machine.

Step 4: Now Bring It Throught the Last Couple of Guides And... Through the Needle!

There are two more before you can thread the needle itself... the first one lets the thread in from the right, the second in from the left... then the thread goes into the needle from front to back

    I think you mean, how do you pull up the bobbin thread? Try this YouTube video, which shows how to do this with a different model of Singer Stylist. The bobbin is handled pretty much the same way, and the machine's little diagram, visible to the left in the video, is also helpful:https://youtu.be/t_6xlN3jrns

    I use Sewing Parts Online to obtain repair parts for my old Singer Stylist model 534. I also obtained another user manual from them. They are well stocked with all the special feet etc. (including the double-needle foot) as well. GL.

    El pisa costura no se mueve como va a hacer la puntada si no jala la tela para hacer la siguiente puntada

    Si la tela no avanza con cada puntada, es probable que deba aumentar la tensión del prensatelas utilizando el control de pulgar estriado que dice "norm" en la parte superior, al extremo izquierdo, de la máquina.

    Does anyone know if it is possible to use a double needle on this machine? Thanks

    Yes. Full instructions may be found in the Stylist 534 user manual. There is a special double needle attachment foot that has two fused needles. You then use both top posts for the two spools of thread, one for each of the two threads, threading the machine with both threads together beginning with the silver hook at the top of the machine, until they separate once more to be threaded into each eye of the two needles.

    My Mother passed away and I got her sewing machine. Unfortunately, it's missing the most fundamental part....the spool pin??? Don't I need something other than the stick that the thread sits on? Please help me. I've been alternating between crying for my Mom and our sewing sessions and being angry with a family member's careless packing. Since I can only control me, I'm searching for the missing parts related to the spool pin. Everything else seems to be working.

    I have this machine for some years now, I think I got this in 1978.
    It is used to sew everything from jeans to motorcycle seat covers and leather.
    I posted a copy of the manual on the web site SCRIBD.COM
    Look up Singer 534 stylist manual, you will need to upload one to download one.
    Parts for this can be found at SEW4LESS.COM.

    I followed these instructions to thread the machine but my bobbin thread keeps getting jammed. I think maybe I put the bobbin in wrong. Do you have any instructions for that?

    Wow. We got this exact machine for $1 at an auction. I'm going to try to get it sewing!! The pressure foot won't come up (the lever seems locked in place). Is that normal for this machine or is there some sort of unlock button?
