Before you start threading your Brother sewing machine, you need to make sure that it is properly prepared. This means that you need to raise the needle and the presser foot and then disengage the feed dogs.

Step Two: Load the Bobbin
The next step is to load the bobbin onto your machine. To do this, you will first need to remove the bobbin case from the machine. Once the bobbin case is removed, you can load your bobbin onto the spindle and then replace the bobbin case.

Step Three: Threading the Machine
Once your machine is prepared and your bobbin is in place, you are ready to start threading your sewing machine. To do this, you will need to follow these simple steps:

1) Start by threading the needle from front to back.
2) Next, take your thread behind the tension discs and then pull it up through the take-up lever.
3) Continue threading your sewing machine by wrapping the thread around the tension discs and then pulling it down through the throat plate. You will know that you have done this correctly when you see a small loop of thread on top of the throat plate.
4) Pull your thread through to the back of the machine and then take it over to the bobbin case area.
5) Hold onto your top thread with one hand while you use your other hand to turn the handwheel towards you until the needle moves down into the take-up lever area. At this point, you should be able to see your needle going through the hole in the center of the bobbin caseā€”if not, stop turning and try again. Now gently pull on both threads until they are tight against would-like Roasts – (Coffee Roast Guide)

Step Two: Thread the Bobbin


Threading the bobbin is the second step in setting up your sewing machine. The bobbin holds the lower thread and sits beneath the fabric you are sewing.

1. Start by finding the spool pin, which is a metal rod or pin on the top of the machine. This is where you will place your spool of thread.

2. Place your spool of thread on the spool pin and pull a few inches of thread off so that you can begin winding it around the bobbin.

3. To wind the thread around the bobbin, hold onto the end of the thread with one hand and press down on the foot pedal with your other hand. The machine will start to wind the thread around the bobbin.

4. Once you have wound enough thread around the bobbin, release the foot pedal and take hold of the end of the thread again so that it doesn’t unwind.

5. Trim off any excess thread and replace the bobbin in its case underneath the sewing machine.

Step Three: Thread the Needle


Now it’s time to thread the needle. Start by flipping up the small lever located just above the needle. This will release the needle so that you can thread it. Take your thread and pass it through the tiny hole located on the needle from front to back. Once the thread is through the hole, pull it until there are about six inches of thread hanging out of the needle. Now that the needle is threaded, you can return the lever to its original position.

Step Four: Start Sewing!


Now that your machine is threaded, you’re ready to start sewing!

To start stitching, first, make sure that the needle is in the highest position by turning the handwheel towards you (counterclockwise).

With the needle in the highest position, press down on the foot pedal. The machine will start sewing slowly; increase the speed by increasing the pressure on the pedal.

To stop sewing, remove your foot from the pedal. The needle will stop in the down position; to raise it, turn the handwheel towards you (counterclockwise) until it clicks into place.

Conclusion



Assuming you have all the parts and pieces for your machine, let’s get started! Make sure the power is off and the handwheel is in the unthreaded position. Raise the needle to its highest position by turning the handwheel toward you. Then, follow these steps:

1. Draw up the bobbin thread by holding the thread tail with your left hand and turning the handwheel toward you with your right hand until the needle moves into the up position.
2. Cut the thread tails sticking out of the needle plate with scissors.
3. Pull out a little bit of top thread and place it under the presser foot.
4. Lower the presser foot lever to hold the main thread in place.
5. Turn the handwheel slowly toward you again until the needle moves down into the fabric and then back up into the machine again. The top thread should now be running through the take-up and down into the fabric below. If not, check to be sure that you have drawn up enough bobbin thread and try again from step 1.
6. Continue to hold onto both threads at the back of the machine and gently pull them until there is a small loop of top thread behind the presser foot(about 1″).
7. Put your project under the presser foot and gently lower it so that the sewing machine can start stitching!
