How to thread a mini sewing machine bobbin
I bought a mini sewing machine 10 days ago and have been teaching myself how to use it. Because there are so many parts in a sewing machine, it can be overwhelming to take it all in at once, let’s start with the bobbin.
The anatomy of a stitch
There are two different threads working at the same time in any sewing machine, and the bobbin is located inside a small chamber called the bobbin holder, which contains a device called a bobbin, which is where the thread is stitched together.
What is a bobbin?
A bobbin is a round device with holes on both sides that is used by different models of sewing machines to make the stitch on the underside of whatever you are sewing, known as a bobbin, which is an integral part of the machine’s operation.
Why is it important to fill a bobbin?
Sewing bobbins don’t usually come filled, and even if they do, there’s usually only a small amount of thread on them, so knowing how to fill a bobbin is a good idea if you’re just getting started with sewing.
What you need to thread or fill a bobbin
Every modern sewing machine has a mechanism to assist you in winding the bobbin, but you’ll need a spool of thread to get started, and we’ll need to use our mini sewing machine to transfer some of this thread onto an empty bobbin when there’s none left.
Locating the spindles on your mini sewing machine
There are at least two different spindles on a mini sewing machine, with the hidden spindle on top housing your spool of thread. A simple way to tell is that the thread reel has to sit perfectly. See how the thread on the reel is making a P shape?
How to wind the bobbin on your mini sewing machine
Pass one end of the thread from the reel through any of the small holes on the side of the bobbin, and use your finger as a pulley to help the thread flow smoothly between the spool and the bobbin when using the mini sewing machine.
Placing or installing the full bobbin in a mini sewing machine
How do you remember which way the bobbin should go inside a sewing machine? Here’s a quick and easy way to remember which way your mini-sewing machine’s bobbin should go.
The nifty nine method of installing the bobbin
You can see how the thread on your bobbin should flow inside the mini sewing machine if you follow the shape of a figure 9. Your bobbin’s shape should follow the number 9 as you drop it inside the machine, just like in the figure 9 diagram.
Now let’s take a look at how it’s going to look on an actual mini sewing machine.
There is a bottom chamber in the miniature sewing machine where your bobbin is supposed to sit; simply drop the bobbin inside the chamber using the figure 9 method, and you have just filled and threaded your miniature sewing machine bobbin on your own.
How do you thread a bobbin on Lil sew and sew?

Is mini sewing machine useful?
The machine’s compact and durable design, which includes support for foot pedals, allows it to stitch thick cloth materials like denim, and you can use various speed settings in conjunction with the foot pedal.

How does the bobbin thread work?
If you look closely at a sew being formed, you can see how the needle reaches into the bobbin case and pulls a thread for each cycle, loops it with the upper thread, and creates a complete sew on the pressed fabric.
Why does my sewing machine keep jamming?
Regardless of how certain you are that the machine’s problem is caused by a huge tangled mess of thread in the bobbin beneath the fabric, the most common cause of jamming is a lack of tension in the upper thread.
