The Hobby 1200 is a Pfaff sewing machine that they call the Grand Quilter. First raise the presser foot and make sure that the needle is at the highest position (press the needle up/down button twice with the machine on). Then turn off the machine and unplug it for the maximum safety. For the top thread, place a spool on the spool pin and guide the thread through one of the two thread guides on the thread guide bar. The thread starts from behind the guide. (The post holding the guide bar is next to the spool pin.) As with most sewing machines, you will work from right to left and lead the thread down then up before going down to the needle. Bring the thread to the next thread guide (in front of the bobbin winding pin) and pass it through one of the holes from the back. Wrap the thread to the back of the guide and then through another of the holes. If the thread tension is very loose, try going through all three holes. Bring the thread down between the pre-tension discs going counter-clockwise.

Hold the thread in both hands and guide it around down and around the tension dial from right to left. Bring the thread up to get it between the tension discs and behind the tail of the check spring. Bring the thread back down over the loop of the check spring then under the thread guide that looks like an upside down L with a curve in it. Bring the thread up and through the next thread guide. (This guide is horizontal and just above the previous guide and one side ends near the center of the tension dial.)

Bring the thread up and pass it through the eye in the thread take-up lever and then back down through the horizontal thread guide above. Slip the thread into the thread guide and then down to the needle bar thread guide. Thread the needle from front to back. The thread should be along the groove in the needle.

You can find the manual at Pfaff's Machine Update page: http://www.pfaff.com/en-US/Support-and-Updates/Support . Search for the model and then you'll get to the product page: http://www.pfaff.com/en-US/Support/3336 . The direct link to the manual is http://www.pfaff.com/SiteMedia/PFAFF/Products/Machines/Support-manuals/GrandQuilter-manual-EN.pdf . The threading section starts on page 21 (page 23 of the PDF). The manual has good pictures that are better than my attempts to describe the guides.

I hope this helps.

NEEDLE BROKE OFF & BOTTOM HALF FELL INTO WHERE BOBBIN IS. WILL IT INTERFERE WITH SEWING. CAN'T SEEM TO FIND IT TO REMOVE. PFAFF HOBBY GRAND QUILTER 1200. THANK YOU


If it is stuck in the bobbin mechanism, you can remove the bobbin case to extract it. You probably should find and remove the broken piece because it can cause severe damage to your machine. I've actually picked my machine up and shook it to find the broken needle. Sometimes it drops straight through and is actually setting under the machine.

What are the correct thread tension numbers on thePfaff hobby grand quilter 1200


Usually, the standard tension for upper thread is midway between high & low numbers. However, every machine differs and may need to be tweaked. Unfortunately, finding the correct tension is generally a test and adjust method. Be sure you are using a brand new needle and good quality thread.

Grand quilter 1200 I had to replace a needle the other day. now it will not thread the needle and when starting off it does not pick up the bobbin thread. What did I do Wrong?


: unthread the machine, take a brand new size80 needle and install as shown in your book(scarf of the needle to the right hand side) very important.. Now reomove the bobbin case and double check the threading of it, reinstall the case . now rethread the upper thread. Place a sample material under the foot , turn the handwheel in direction of rotation for a few turns. If the machine appears to be making a stitch , u can use the foot control to test to see if the machine is now working
