How To Use The Sewing Machine
- Oct 23, 2018 -

The sewing machine is not as difficult to use as it seems. No matter what material or model your sewing machine is, the basic operating principles are similar. Practice sewing on a few pieces of rags until you can master and coordinate the operation of the sewing machine. Even if you start to pay attention to many details, you will eventually become familiar with it.

1. Place the sewing machine on a sturdy table, long table or cabinet attached to the sewing machine. Sit at the table and make sure the height of the chair fits the table. Place the sewing machine so that the end of the needle is on your left hand side and the body of the sewing machine is on the right side. You will need to check a few things and understand how the sewing machine works, so don't connect the power supply first.

2. Firmly install the needle. The needle of the sewing machine has a flat side, so it can only be installed in one direction, usually with the flat side facing the rear. The other side of the flat surface is a needle groove. When installing, the needle groove must face the direction in which the thread penetrates (the thread moves in the needle groove and is inserted up and down in the cloth). Insert the needle into the tip of the needle and tighten the thumbscrew. If your sewing machine has a needle installed, check that it is installed straight and firm.

3. Determine the sewing machine presser foot, that is, the skid-shaped part that presses the fabric. Make sure that a basic presser foot is installed and the screws are tightened. Find the presser foot and practice the lifter foot. Usually the presser foot is located to the right or the back of the needle. Lift or lower the presser foot all the way.

4. Wind the bobbin and install it on the sewing machine. The sewing machine uses two types of thread, one bottom thread and one upper thread, which are all required to be wound around the bobbin. Usually the sewing machine manual has detailed steps to guide you on how to wind and install the bobbin.

5. Wear the upper thread. Thread the thread according to the instructions on the instructions.

You can also thread the thread according to the direction indicated on the machine body.

Usually the installation direction of the wire follows this general mode: left, down, up, down, in the hook end, and through the needle. Another threading method is the wire column, pulling force, lifting the pick rod, needle, and using the wire guide. The wire column is the place where the wire is placed. The wire is pulled out from the wire barrel, the rod receives an extra wire (for the upper thread to circle around the shuttle), and the back is ready to be sewn.

The thread may penetrate the needle from the left, right or front and back. If the needle is threaded, you can see the threading direction; if not, the last threader position before the needle is usually closest to the direction you must thread.

If your sewing machine is not threaded, try the brand and model of the sewing machine on the search engine. Many companies post this important information online.

6, the bottom line

Gently grasp the thread on the needle with your left hand. Turn the handwheel in the upper right corner of the sewing machine, usually turn to yourself and turn a full circle. Move a pair of scissors between the presser foot and the cover to gently pull out the two coils. You should now have two lines, one for the needle and the other for the bottom line.

7. Connect the power supply and turn on the sewing machine. Many sewing machines have a built-in light that tells you if the sewing machine is powered. If your sewing machine has a power switch, it is usually located on the right or back of the body. Some sewing machines do not have a separate switch and are activated as soon as the power is connected.
