All week I’ve been trying to film a video tutorial on how to thread up your machine. There is no video – what can I say?! the camera hates me! I’m a complete amature when it comes to my Camera, I am constantly pushing myself to learn more and do better, so I wont be too hard on myself! But on my list of goal for the near future is to figure out the record function & get some great video tutorials to you.
So heres what I do have.
I’ve simplified the process for winding your bobbin & threading your machine as best I can, lets begin.
9- Place your bobbin back in its metal case, pulling the loose thread through the opening, around the groove and through the gap. Give it a little pull to make sure the thread pulls out smooth. If you have to tug at the thread to get it through, you’ll have to loosen your bobbin tension slightly – you can do this with a screwdriver, only turning slightly before trying again (and so on until you get a nice smooth pull).
10. Fit your bobbin case back into your machine, usually you place it in with the little leaver pulled back. Place in & turn clockwise until it locks, then you can push the little leaver back down. *Remember to leave some of your thread hanging loose out of the machine.
12. Once you’ve pulled your thread through your machine you can then guide it through the little hoop on the needle shaft. And then down through your needle. Always thread it from the front through to the back.
14. Keeping tight hold of your needle thread, wind the hand wheel at the side of your machine again until it pulls your needle back up. This should bring up your bobbin thread as a loop – this is why you had to leave thread loos from your bobbin before.
If you’re still struggling to understand how to thread up your machine (Don’t worry it took me a while too!) you can also watch this video, I think it explains it pretty simply!

I will always get back to you as soon as possible, as well as promising to help you get threaded up as best I can.
So now thats pretty much all the basics covered (I did try to cram them all down into as many posts as possible.. honest!) we can now move on to actually using your sewing machine! I’ll have your first lesson actually on the machine posted up tomorrow afternoon.
Hope you’ve all had have a nice weekend!
