Where does the bottom bobbin thread go?
Once you have a wound bobbin, it goes in the machine’s bobbin case to supply the lower thread as your machine sews. To load your bobbin, lift your needle and presser foot to the highest position (your machine will either use a hand wheel or a button for this) and remove the bobbin cover.
Do you thread the bobbin through the needle?
