How Do I Thread a Bobbin?

Posted on

Threading the bobbins is not a difficult task for users. Having the thread smooth and even will assist in properly formed stitches. Just remember tangled and looping bobbin thread when you are sewing is not usually caused by the bobbin. Using a sewing machine makes sewing projects easier and quick.

  • Locale a spool of thread securely on the spool pin.
  • Take the thread to a thread guide that is nearest to the spool pin but heading for the bobbin and guides the thread into the guide.
  • There will be some sort of a guide that may look like a disk or button that the thread will go under or between to carry tension on the thread before it goes to the bobbin.
  • If there is no hole in the bobbin, Locate the bobbin on the last spot of the bobbin winding area and wind the thread around the bobbin a few times, leaving just enough thread tail so that you can carry the thread tail while the bobbin starts to wind. You can pare this thread once the bobbin starts to fill or you can just let go of that thread tail and allow it to wind on the bobbin.

If the brake is properly set, the machine should stop winding on most machines when the thread fills the bobbin.
