A bobbin is an integral part of a sewing machine. The bobbin thread is wound onto the bobbin, and once the assembly is in place you can create an interlock stitch, looping two threads together.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Open the hook cover by raising the needle. This can be done by turning the fly wheel towards you.

  2. 2

    Remove the bobbin assembly by pulling on the latch. The latch is in the middle of the bobbin assembly and resembles a zipper pull.

  3. 3

    Place the wound bobbin in the bobbin case. Make sure the thread unwinds in the same direction as the arrow on the case.

  4. 4

    Pull the bobbin thread into the bobbin case slot and then draw the thread under the tension spring and into the delivery eye.

  5. 5

    Place the bobbin case back into the bobbin assembly and ensure that the horn is placed back into the recess of the hook race.

Tips and warnings

  • If the bobbin thread is snagging when you sew, you might have the bobbin thread wound in the direction opposite of the arrow on the bobbin assembly.
