How do I draw up the lower thread by hand? (For models equipped with the quick-set bobbin)

 

You can begin sewing immediately without drawing up the bobbin thread.
When sewing gathers or darts, you can draw up the lower thread by hand so that some thread will be left over.
Before you draw up the lower thread, put the bobbin back in.

 

1. Pass the thread along the slit in the direction of the arrow, and leave it there without cutting it.

4. While holding the end of the upper thread, raise the needle either by turning the handwheel toward you (counterclockwise) so that the mark on the wheel points up or by pressing needle position button (for models equipped with the needle position button) once or twice.
