Euro Pro Sewing Machine: How To Thread


Step 1. Thread the upper thread

  • Check if you turned off the sewing machine
  • Lift the needle bar to the highest position
  • Thread the upper thread according to the sequence shown in the Euro Pro model’s manual
  • There are guides that you’ll use for the thread to ensure that the machine will sew properly
  • After the guides, draw the thread into the needle bar thread guide to reach the needle eye
  • Thread the needle front to back and leave four inches of thread behind it

Step 2. Wind the bobbin

  • Turn the clutch knob to release the clutch
  • Draw the thread through the bobbin winder tension disk front to back
  • Find the hole in the bobbin and pull the end of the thread through it
  • Install the bobbin into the sewing machine
  • Check if the thread’s tail comes from the top of the bobbin
  • Secure the bobbin in place
  • Wind the thread until it allows 
  • Removes the bobbin, and cut the thread 
  • Tighten the clutch knob
  • If you find it hard to remove or insert the bobbin, check if the needle is raised to the highest position
  • You also want to check the direction of the thread when you inserted the bobbin since the thread must run clockwise 

Step 3. Bring the lower thread up

  • Hold the upper thread and turn the handwheel with your other hand to raise the needle to the highest level
  • Draw the upper thread up to form a loop with the bobbin thread
  • With the bobbin thread caught in a loop by the upper thread, pull the latter towards you
  • Pull six inches of both threads underneath the presser foot of the Euro Pro sewing machine
