Let’s get your sewing machine prepped. Today I will show you the process of winding a bobbin. It’s a little spool that feeds the thread from the bottom to the machine. It is important to properly wind the bobbin in order to thread the lower part of the sewing machine and to avoid breakage. A sewing machine instruction manual and this article can help you with it.
You need to use a bobbin designed specially for the brand of the sewing machine that you’re using.
Step 1. Open the top cover of the sewing machine, if there is one.
Step 2. Take off the thread cap, put the chosen spool of thread on the spool stand and then slide the thread cap back on (see the article on How to Thread a Sewing Machine).
Step 3. Pass the thread under the thread guide.
Pull the thread through the thread guide from left to right.
Pass the thread around the tension disk.
Step 4. Insert the end of the thread through a small hole from the inside of the bobbin.
Step 5. Place the bobbin on the bobbin winder shaft, then turn it so that the groove on the bobbin aligns with the spring on the bobbin winder shaft.
Step 6. Pull out the thread about 4 inches.
Step 7. Move the bobbin winder shaft to the right so that the bobbin winder stop holds still.
The display on my sewing machine indicates the bobbin winding mode.
Step 8. Turn the sewing machine on.
Step 9. While holding the thread end, press the foot controller pedal or the start button to start the machine and begin the bobbin winding process (the machine will automatically stop when the bobbin winding is finished).
Step 10. It is necessary to cut the thread from the main spool of thread.
Step 11. Slide the bobbin winder shaft with the bobbin to the left.
Step 12. Use scissors to trim the top thread of the bobbin.
Step 13. Remove the bobbin and insert it into the bobbin case.
Step by step you will learn to do it quickly and efficiently. The sewing machine will do its job in a high quality.
Practice and you will succeed!
