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.
Thread 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.
Thread 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.
There are two types of bobbin holders on sewing machines: top-load and front-load. A top-load gets put in from the top, right in front of the presser foot, and is very common in modern machines. A front-load is pushed in from the front of the machine, in front of the presser foot.
