Pulling Up the Bobbin Thread

Sometimes, you may be working on a project that requires the bobbin thread to be on top of the needle plate. To make this happen, when loading your bobbin, instead of pulling it all the way through arrow 3:

Arrow 3 cuts the the thread

Arrow 3 cuts the the thread

Where arrow 3 will cut the thread, you only want to thread the bobbin to about halfway through that curve:

Right about here!

Right about here!

Stop threading at the 3 mark here. Then turn the hand wheel on the right side of the machine to lower the needle. Turn it one full rotation and the upper thread will catch that bobbin thread and pull it up through the needle plate. Pull the bobbin thread to the back, replace the bobbin cover, and you’re ready to stitch!
