Place the spool of thread on the spool pin. Guide the thread end through the bobbin winder tension disks and
then around the bobbin winder. Hold the end of the thread while pressing on the foot pedal to wind the
thread around the bobbin. Make sure to stop when the bobbin is adequately filled.
Slide the filled bobbin onto the bobbin holder, ensuring the thread unwinds in a counterclockwise direction.
Follow your sewing machine’s instructions to place the bobbin in its designated spot.
Guide the thread through the thread guide(s) on the bobbin case, usually marked with numbers or arrows.
Continue by pulling the thread through the tension spring and the small metal hook, leaving a tail of around
Now, hold the upper thread firmly with your left hand, rotating the handwheel towards you to lower the needle
into the bobbin case. As the needle comes back up, it will catch the bobbin thread. Pull the bobbin thread
gently through the slot, bringing both threads under the presser foot.
Take a few test stitches to ensure the bobbin thread is properly balanced with the upper thread. Adjust the
tension if needed using the tension dial or other adjustment mechanisms provided on your sewing machine.
Note: Always refer to your sewing machine’s manual for specific instructions, as different models may
have slight variations in the threading process.
By following these steps, you’ll be able to thread your sewing machine bobbin correctly, leading to smooth and
hassle-free sewing experiences.
