The Husqvarna sewing machine is also known as the Viking machine. This machine can sew just about any project you have, from simple sewing to embroidery and quilting. Winding a bobbin is fairly easy; there are two main places that the bobbin winder is located. On newer models you will find the bobbin winder on the top of the machine. On older models you will find the bobbin winder on the side of the machine.
Thread your machine like you would to sew a project. Put your empty bobbin onto the bobbin pin located on the top of the machine with the logo facing you.
Now bring your thread from under your presser foot and up around your thread guide to your bobbin. Wind your thread by hand three times around your bobbin clockwise. Push down the bobbin pin so that it locks the bobbin in place and engages the bobbin winder mechanism.
Hold on to the end of the thread that you have wrapped around the bobbin and push down on the foot pedal lightly to start winding the bobbin; after a few seconds let go of the end of the thread you were holding. You can press down harder on the foot pedal and fill your bobbin. When your bobbin is full it will automatically stop winding. While your bobbin is winding your needle will not go up or down.
Push the bobbin pin up to disengage the bobbin and cut the thread. Remove the bobbin from the bobbin winder and put it back in its original place.
Thread your machine normally and put your empty bobbin on the bobbin winder on the right side of your machine with the logo facing you.
Pull out the winding arm on the right side of your machine. Get the thread from under the presser foot and pull it up to the winding arm and wrap the thread around the bobbin three times counterclockwise leaving a small tail of thread on the bobbin.
Hold the tail of the thread on the bobbin and press down slowly on the foot pedal to begin winding your bobbin. After a few seconds, let go of the thread you were holding. You can now press down onto the foot pedal harder. The needle will not go up and down while the winding arm is pulled out. The bobbin winder will stop automatically when the bobbin is full.
Cut the thread, and remove the bobbin from the bobbin winder. Replace the winding arm to its original position so that you can continue to work on your sewing project.
