Loading a bobbin
Now that you've mastered threading the upper thread, it's time to learn how to wind and load the bobbin. Below, I provide the fundamental steps for understanding your bobbin. For specific details, consult your machine manual, as some manuals may include illustrated diagrams guiding you through the process.
- Wrap the thread around the front of the bobbin winder thread guide, and then proceed to wrap it around the bobbin in the direction indicated for your specific machine (in this example, clockwise).
- Guide the thread towards the bobbin, wrapping it around the bobbin two or three times in a clockwise direction. Finally, pull the thread through the slit in the base.
- Now, push the bobbin winder to the right until it clicks neatly into place. For some machines, you may need to push the lever toward the stationary bobbin winder instead. Proceed with the next steps based on the type of bobbin your machine uses.
