How to Thread a Sewing Machine
Threading your machine is the first place to start--and it is not as hard as you might imagine! Every sewing machine may need to be threaded in a slightly different way, but all have the same parts and need to be threaded through those parts in the same order.
Threading the top thread:
If you would like specific threading directions for your particular sewing machine, check your owner's manual or do a quick YouTube search using the make and model number of your machine.
Threading the bobbin:
The bobbin is the small circular thread-holder that holds the bottom thread in your sewing machine. This thread is very important because it works together with the top thread to actually create a stitch and hold your fabrics together--without two threads, your machine will not be able to make a stitch.
Before threading your bobbin thread, you must first have a fully wound bobbin. Learn to wind your bobbin by clicking HERE.
Next, there are two types of bobbin holders on sewing machines: top-load and front-load.
A machine whose bobbin can be taken out, straight up from in front of the presser foot is a top-load bobbin. Learn how to thread those with this video tutorial.
If your bobbin is removed from the front side of the machine, below the presser foot area, then you have a front-load bobbin.
