The Bobbin



Now before you actually begin to sew, you will need to wind the bobbin, again for your particular machine please refer to the user manual, as you will have to take one of the empty bobbin cartridges and the color of the thread you are using and stick the thread through the small hole on the bobbin cartridge.



Once this is accomplished you should be ready to wind the bobbin using your foot pedal.
