How to Use a Sewing Machine
Presser Foot and Needle.
Step 1: Thread bobbin.
Grab bobbin and thread spool, put the thread on the spool pin. Take it around the tension disk. Back to your empty bobbin; pull through one hole to secure. Make sure switch is in bobbin in winding position, step on pedal. Once bobbin is full, switch back to sewing position. Cut off excess thread and remove and from the spool.
Step 2: Loading the bobbin.
Insert bobbin into bobbin case, insert bobbin with thread going clockwise.
Step 3: Loading the top thread.
From spool pin, go through thread guide. Run down the right channel, up the left channel, through the take up lever slot, and back down. Pass behind the horizontal thread guide; thread the needle from the front. Make sure to pull out six inches of slack.
Step 4: Bring the threads together.
Using the manual knob, bring up the bottom thread, pull out and place both strings to the back.
Step 5: Sewing.
Playing with the stitch knob, can yield some interesting stitches. The straight stitch is most generic. Insert fabric, lower the presser foot. To get a seam going, stitch forwards and backwards using the backwards stitch lever. Sew away in a straight line, “double back” again to finish the stitch, lift the foot lever and remove.
Step 6: Cut off thread.
Cut as close to the stitch without cutting the fabric.
Use your hands to guide and keep the fabric in line, but don’t push it, the machine move the fabric for you.
Keep the same seam allowance fro the whole project; 5/6 inch is standard.
Line your fabric edge up to the lines on the foot plate for reference.
Practice on scraps of fabric before starting so you can dial in the right tension.
