Let’s get started!
Here are some steps on how to thread a dressmaker sewing machine for beginners
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 there are about 6-7 inches of thread hanging from the spool. Thread the needle and tie a knot in 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 doing another loop around. Keep going until you have it threaded.
4) Feed the thread through both of the holes that have 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 thread from under the “T” screw until there are about 3-4 inches left hanging out of that side. Pass it through the little slot and pull it until another 3-4 inches is hanging out. Pull down one side of the thread from under the “T” screw towards the bottom of the foot control, leaving about 4-5 inches hanging there. 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) You should have about 5-6 inches left at the top and 4-5 inches left at the bottom when you are done threading your sewing machine. Put one spool of thread on each side of the sewing machine, making sure they are equal height, so 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 make sure 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 piece of 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 and another loop on top of the fabric as well as 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 scraps of fabric to get the hang of it.
