Steps To Thread Dressmaker Sewing Machine For Beginners
Here are the steps on how to thread a dressmaker sewing machine:
#1. Take the bobbin holder out of the sewing machine. Put the new sewing machine needle in it.
#2. Pull down on the thread until about 6-7 inches of thread are hanging from the spool. Thread the needle and tie a knot on both ends of the thread (if you need to use a double needle).
#3. Pull the thread through one side of the sewing machine and then pass it back through to make a loop around that same hole. Pass it over and under, coming up at the next space and making another loop. Keep going until you have it threaded.
#4. Feed the thread through both holes with a “T” on them, then under the screw and back up again to tighten it. Continue this for all of the screws until they are tight.
#5. Open up a bobbin box and put a bobbin in the bobbin holder. Then get your thread and pass it through the hole in the spool, leaving a loop at the end. Put the spool back on with the loop of thread under.
#6. Takedown one side of the thread from under the “T” screw until about 3-4 inches are left hanging out of that side. Pass it through the little slot and pull it until another 3-4 inches hang out. Pull one side of the thread from under the “T” screw towards the bottom of the foot control, leaving about 4-5 inches hanging. Continue pulling down on both sides of the thread until you have threaded it seven times in all seven holes that have a “T” screw in them.
#7. When you are done threading your sewing machine, you should have about 5-6 inches left at the top and 4-5 inches left at the bottom. Put one spool of thread on each side of the sewing machine, making sure they are equal in height, so that when you sew, it doesn’t look crooked. Pull down on the bottom thread until it’s tight, and put a mark in about 1/2 inch to ensure you sew with the same amount of thread each time. Thread your machine as directed for upper or bobbin winding from pages 2-1 in your manual.
#8. Get a scrap fabric and test to sew on it. If you have your tension set right on the bobbin and top thread, then your stitches should look like this:
There will be a loop of thread underneath, another loop on top of the fabric, and a small “X” shape at the bottom, where the needle goes through (usually on the back). You can practice winding the bobbin and threading your sewing machine with fabric scraps to get the hang of it.
