How To Thread Sewing Machine (Brother)

Sewing machines are excellent tools for creating beautiful garments and crafts. If you own a Brother sewing ‍machine

⁤ and are unsure about how to thread it, fear not! This step-by-step guide ‌will walk you through the process,
‌ ⁣ ensuring that you’re ready to start sewing ‍in no time.

Gather the Supplies

Before starting, make sure⁢ you have the following supplies:

  • A​ spool of thread
  • A bobbin thread
  • A Brother sewing machine (model-specific instructions may vary)
  • A needle appropriate for your chosen fabric

Step 1: Preparing the Bobbin

  1. Start by turning off your sewing machine to prevent any accidents.
  2. Locate the bobbin ⁢cover on the front ⁣of your machine. Open it and remove any leftover thread ⁤from the bobbin ⁢case.
  3. Take your empty bobbin and wind it with your chosen thread. Follow ⁤the ⁣machine’s specific instructions to wind
    ⁤ ⁣ ⁤ ‍ it ​correctly.
  4. Make sure the thread is securely wound and then insert the bobbin ‍into the bobbin case, ensuring it rotates
    ⁤ ‍‌ counterclockwise.
  5. Draw⁢ the⁣ thread into the tension spring and⁢ place the bobbin ⁢case back into the machine and⁤ close the bobbin
    ⁣ ​ ‍ ​ cover.

Step 2: Threading the Upper Thread

  1. Turn on your sewing ⁣machine.
  2. Take the spool of thread and place it on the spool pin, which is usually located on the top of the machine.
    ⁢ Make sure the spool is secured in place using​ the spool⁢ cap.
  3. Now, locate the thread ‌guide at the top of your machine and follow the specific threading path as shown in your
    ​ ⁣ machine’s‍ instruction manual.
  4. Take⁣ the thread and pass ‍it through the thread​ guide, making sure it goes under the tension disks.
  5. Next, locate the take-up lever and thread the thread through it from right to left.
  6. Bring the thread down and pass it through the remaining guides, ensuring it passes through any thread tension
    disks or loops specified by your machine’s guide.

Step 3: Bringing Both⁤ Threads Up

  1. To bring the bobbin thread up, hold the ‌needle thread‍ with your left hand.
  2. Using your right hand, rotate the handwheel towards you, which should make the⁣ needle descend and then come
    ⁤ back up.
  3. As the needle rises, it will catch the bobbin thread in a‌ loop.
  4. Use a pair ‍of tweezers or your fingers to gently pull the loop of the ​bobbin thread up through the throat plate.
  5. Both the needle thread and the bobbin​ thread should now be above the throat plate.


Threading your Brother sewing machine may seem daunting⁣ at first, but by carefully following‌ the steps outlined
‌ ⁢ ⁤above, you will become comfortable with the process in no time. Remember to consult‍ your machine’s instruction
manual for any model-specific instructions. Soon enough, you’ll be able to thread your Brother sewing machine
effortlessly and embark on your ​creative sewing projects with confidence!
