Make sure the thread unwinds to the left (counterclockwise direction). Guide the thread through the slit in the needle plate cover. This is important because it makes the thread enter the ‘tension spring’ of the bobbin case. This is how tension will be applied to the bobbin thread when sewing.
What direction should the bobbin turn?
3. Insert the bobbin making sure the bobbin rotates counterclockwise when you pull the thread. NOTE: This is a very important step as the bobbin can become unthreaded and cause sewing problems if it rotates clockwise.
Why is my bobbin not rotating?
The main source of birdnesting or looping is improperly inserted or threaded bobbin or running the embroidery machine with no bobbin. A tight bobbin tension, together with highly loose needle thread tension, can cause birdnesting. Flagging occurs when the hoop bounces up and down during sewing.
Does bobbin direction matter?
Make sure the bobbin thread unrolls in the correct direction when installing the bobbin into the bobbin case. Be sure to set a bobbin so that the thread unrolls in the correct direction. If the thread unrolls in the wrong direction, the needle may break or the thread tension will be incorrect.
What is a top drop in bobbin?
A Drop in bobbin (also known as top-loading bobbin) is a bobbin set up in which the bobbin protrudes from the top of the sewing machine surface. To insert or remove it, all a sewist needs is to lift the needle plate, then take out or insert the bobbin case such that it sits horizontally under the needle compartment.
Why does my top thread gets stuck in the bobbin?
The most probable cause of the top thread stuck in sewing machine is that the bobbin is not wound properly. It may be loose or there may be a problem with the pickup.
