Where should the thread be when you start sewing?
Insert the thread into the small hole at the bottom of the needle from front to back by hand or use automatic needle threader if your sewing machine has one. Then the thread must be drawn under the presser foot, located directly under the needle. VERY IMPORTANT: the power switch should be off.
What is the first step in threading the lower part of the sewing machine?
Wrap the thread around the take-up lever. Thread the needle. Pull your thread down toward the sewing machine needle, and thread the eye of the needle from front to back. Keep pulling the end of the thread until there are several inches of thread through the needle.
Which way should thread come off spool?
Generally speaking stacked thread should be placed on a vertical spool pin on the sewing machine. The thread should leave the spool at a RIGHT angle, in line with the direction of the wound thread. This will stop the thread catching on the grooves at the end of the spool.
Do you start sewing with the needle down?
(Plus it’s hard to see the take up lever on the newer machines.) If you have your machine set on needle down and you get to the end of the seam, you should always raise your needle before you remove your fabric. (Don’t just sew past the fabric and remove it with the needle still down.)
Why do we need to thread the machine correctly?
THREADING THE MACHINE
Each part of the threading mechanism on the head of a sewing machine has a definite purpose in guiding the thread from the spool to the needle. The thread must pass through the various guides in a given order so that the machine will sew properly the formed stitches.
Which part of the machine is the thread holder?
Which Part of the Machine Is the Thread Holder? There’s a thread holder on your sewing machine. It’s usually positioned on the top of the machine and holds the thread spool in place either vertically or horizontally. Once the thread is on the holder, you’re able to wind the thread through the machine correctly.
