I didn't watch this at first because I 'thought' I knew how to thread a bobbin - so glad I changed my mind! Great tips!

thank you.

Nice video. I wanted to see for sure if my bobbin thread was coming from the right direction. P---Great way to remember.

I'm so embarrased; no one ever taught me to put the thread up through that h*** on the bottom.  :(

Do I feel ....... "duh" 

This video was excellent, thanks.

Thanks so much !   I learned a few good tips from your video, even though I've been (self-taught) sewing all my life. I have two more tips to add to it, for people with machines like mine.  When loading the bobbin on top before you start winding, make sure you rotate the bobbin until it clicks in and engages with the machine.  Otherwise it will spin but won't wind.  Also, to disengage the needle (on my machine) you turn the wheel towards you.  One more comment...the background music was very distracting.   Mary B.

very clear instructions. I just started using a top loading bobbin and have diffuculty getting the thread in the little groove..It helps to see it done, rather than just reading how it's done. Thankyou
