How do I pull up the bobbin thread?
There may be some sewing applications where you want to pull up the bobbin thread; for example, when making gathers, darts, or doing free motion quilting or embroidery.
Press to lock all keys and buttons and raise the presser foot.
If the message OK to automatically lower the presser foot? appears on the LCD screen, press [OK] to continue.
Slide the bobbin cover latch to the right and remove the bobbin cover.
Insert the bobbin into the bobbin case so that the thread unwinds to the left.
Guide the bobbin thread through the groove, following the arrow in the illustration.
- Do not cut the thread with the cutter.
- Do not replace the bobbin cover.
Press to unlock all keys and buttons.
While lightly holding the upper thread with your left hand, press (Needle position button) twice to lower and then raise the needle.
Gently pull the upper thread. A loop of the bobbin thread will come out of the hole in the needle plate.
Pull up the bobbin thread, pass it under the presser foot and pull it about 10 cm (4 inches) toward the back of the machine, making it even with the upper thread.
Reattach the bobbin cover.
Insert the tab of the bobbin cover into the notch of the needle plate cover (A) , and then lightly press down on the right side (B) .
