Are you wondering how to thread a Brother sewing machine? If you’re new to the world of sewing machines, it can be tricky figuring out how to thread your Brother sewing machine correctly.
Threading a sewing machine can seem impossible if you’ve never done it before, but it is a straightforward process.
This blog post will show you step-by-step instructions on threading your Brother sewing machine so you can start making clothes for yourself.
How To Thread The Brother Sewing Machine
Follow the guide below to know how to thread a Brother sewing machine:
#1. First, turn the sewing machine off and lift the presser foot.
#2. Next, you will want to raise the needle and pull it to the right for a second before you continue.
#3. Now it’s time to take the thread from underneath the spool and put it through one of those little holes on top of your machine. Put your thumb on top as you do this so as not to put your fingers in as well accidentally.
#4. Pull the ends of the thread up and hold them in each hand with one hand over the other.
#5. Take one end and go under both loops on top of your machine, bring it back down through those same two loops, repeat with your other hand, and then tie a knot and cut off any excess thread.
#6. Now, let’s get the bobbin ready. Make sure you set your bobbin, so the thread comes off on the bottom of your sewing machine and not on top of your bobbin case. Place it accordingly by pushing it down with a little screwdriver or something similar until it is secure.
#7. Now it’s time to take that bobbin thread and run it through the little slot on the top of your machine. You will want to leave about two inches or so of thread under your spool before you pull. Once you have pulled, grab both ends by pinching them together with one hand over the other again, and make sure you grab it close to the holes and not closer to the spool.
#8. Once your thread is through, you will want to take one end and go under those same two loops we did earlier with our needle thread. Just like before, bring it back down through those same two loops and do this with both ends of your bobbin thread and then tie a knot and cut off any excess thread.
#9. Now that we have both ends tied, you can turn your sewing machine on and get to work.

What Is The Best Thread For Brother Sewing Machine?
This question should be answered by first considering what you’re sewing. If you are doing a lot of topstitching, you might want to use a heavier thread.
Thread weight is measured in tex, with eight being the heaviest and 50 being the lightest. If your project involves lots of detail, then you would also want to consider the thickness of the thread.
For delicate or lightweight fabrics, cotton or novelty threads can be used. These threads are thinner than wool and polyester threads, so care should be taken when using them so as not to create any holes in your project.
The next thing to consider is if you will be sewing with thicker materials like leather or fleece. Again, cotton or novelty threads would be best because they would not cause any damage to your sewing machine. What type of project you are doing will determine the thread color and weight you want to use and whether it should match your fabric or stand out.
The most common colors used when sewing with a brother sewing machine is white, black, red, green, and yellow. These colors can be used with any type of fabric and still provide great results. Each color has its purpose as well.
Things To Consider When Threading Your Machine
Reading your sewing machine’s manual before attempting to thread is always best. If you can’t find a manual for your sewing machine, call the company that produced it and request one.
If they can’t send you one right away, they should be able to tell you where to get one. When threading your sewing machine, ensure that you place the thread on the top of the bobbin case and not under the spool pin. The thread should be coming down the front of the machine.
You will need to ensure that you use the correct type of bobbin for your sewing machine (metal or plastic). You should also use a bobbin with the same weight thread as your upper spool of thread. If you are using a heavy or medium-weight material, then use the corresponding bobbin (heavy bobbin for heavy fabric and medium for medium weight).
It sounds simple, but if you don’t use the right bobbin for your sewing machine, it will not sew correctly. This is because the needle bar needs to push down on something firm to feed the upper thread through the fabric. You may also be interested to know about common sewing machine problems.
