Threading A Sewing Machine For Dummies!
I saw a nine minute video explaining how to thread a sewing machine! First off, put your thread on what’s called the spool pin. Sometimes they face horizontal and sometimes they face vertical and don’t panic if yours is vertical instead of horizontal, they’re both easy. The best part is most machines have numbers on them that show you where you’re supposed to put thread! 1 2 3.
My machines got them and yours probably does too but if it doesn’t don’t panic don’t worry because it’s probably still the same anyway. 1, loop it right underneath that hook right there and pull it so it rests in that crevice. Two, pull it down and then back up through that U shape right there and in there are your tensioner discs, but don’t worry you don’t even need to know what those are yet. Now we go up and we thread it through that metal loop that is going to make your thread go up and down.
But wait SD I don’t see no metal hook sticking up from my machine! Well don’t worry don’t worry, just go to the back of your machine, find your hand wheel and just turn it a little bit! And boom there it is now you see it! And now it’s time for the homestretch you were going to thread it right through that needle better than Aaron Rodgers does in double coverage. Skol Vikings let’s win this game. Sometimes machines can have a little hook just to the side of that needle right there that you run your thread through before you run it through the needle, but don’t panic if it doesn’t. Not all machines do mine does and I still don’t even use it I just go right through the needle. And that’s it you’re all set up, now it’s time to wind a bobbin I will see you on the next one SD out, deuces!.
