Quick Answer: Can I wind my own bobbin?

Place the bobbin, with the holes on the top, on the bobbin winder. Put your selected thread onto the spool pin. Loop the thread around the thread guide, then pull the thread from the inside into the small hole in the top of the bobbin. Wind a bit of thread around the bobbin manually.

Why can’t I wind my bobbin?

If your bobbin does not wind quickly and smoothly when you press on your foot pedal, your bobbin winder might not be fully engaged. This can cause uneven winding. Make sure you push your bobbin pin all the way over or loosen your bobbin wheel completely to engage your bobbin winding mechanism.

What can I use instead of a bobbin?

There are machines that sew without a bobbin – they are called sergers, overlockers, chain stitch machines, and the thread for the underside of the fabric feeds off of a moving “looper” (a hinged hook with guides for the thread).

What to do if you dont have a bobbin?

You can’t sew without a bobbin, as the machine requires two spools in order to operate properly. Therefore, you will need to add the bobbin thread in addition to your needle thread.

Can you manually thread a bobbin?

Hand winding a bobbin is not complicated at all but It takes a bit of practice. Insert one end of the thread into the small hole in the bobbin and hold this thread tail so it doesn’t slip back out when you start to wind the bobbin. Begin winding the thread into the bobbin.
