How to Thread a Dressmaker Sewing Machine for Beginners?
A dress-making sewing machine will let you do wonderful creations. However, threading can be a tough task for many. It can even be more difficult if you are a beginner. We will now provide you with a detailed guide that will let you thread a dressmaker sewing machine. However, you must always read the manuals carefully before you start threading the machine. Also, you will have to load the bobbin to prevent any mess.
Placing the Thread Spool
The first step will be to thread the spool. For this, you need to raise the needle bar. Always keep the handwheel towards you and turn up the needle bar. You need to keep the thread take-up lever at the highest point. Now it’s time to keep the thread spool on the spool pin. In some cases, you may need a tweezer. This serves great for people with dexterity issues.
Leading the Thread
Once you are done placing the thread spool, you can now take the thread below the arm thread guide. Make sure that it must lead through the guides down. On the right side, it has to be around the tension discs. Now go under the left by giving a U motion. This will allow you to lead the thread on the right hand’s side notch. You need to do it carefully above the threaded disc.
Taking Thread to the Guide
Start by leading the thread under the guide bar of the thread. It must always go through the guide opening. Gently take the thread up to the take-up lever. You can do it from the right side to the left side of the lever. Then take the thread down into the thread bar again. It has to be through the guide and must move into the guide.
Threading into the Hook
You will have to find the thread tension knob. This will enable you to take the thread around to the knob’s upper left side. In doing so, you will find a hook behind the know. Keep the thread in the hook and gently pull it upwards. Following this, you will have to find a post and thread it through the hole.
Catching the Bobbin Thread
To begin the next step, you will have to thread it through the needle clamp guide. Keep in mind that you will have to pull at least four inches of the thread to make it pull back from the front. Also, it has to be through the needle of the extension. Now hold the thread extension and move the sewing wheel to the needle’s lower. You will have to do it carefully so that it can catch the bobbin thread. Get it right to the sewing plate that makes the upper thread move up.
The Final Step
You need to turn the wheel and make sure that the needle comes back. It must always be with the bobbin thread. It is time to take both the thread extensions. You must pull it by about 3 inches on the back of the presser foot.
