How to Thread the Sewing Genie Bobbin

Save

Threading a Singer Genie bobbin is simple and takes less than a minute. In fact, threading the sewing machine bobbin might be the fastest and easiest step before starting a sewing project. All you need for this project is a bobbin already wound with thread.

  • Turn off the machine. This may seem obvious, but it's always a safe idea to make sure the machine is off before working under the needle.

  • Raise the needle and presser foot to their highest position. This allows more room to work in the bobbin case below.

  • Open the bobbin case beneath the needle and presser foot. This is a sliding, metal cover at the base of the machine; simply slide it open.

  • Remove any existing bobbin from the case.

  • Drop in the new bobbin you'd like to use. Make sure the thread will unwind to the right in a counter-clockwise rotation. Pull an inch or two of thread to the right to prepare for threading.

  • Pull the thread down toward you, making sure it catches under the tension spring. It should now run through a slot in the bobbin holder.

  • Guide the thread up and to the right in a diagonal line over the bobbin. Pull the thread another inch or two to make sure the thread runs smoothly.

  • Hold the end of the thread while closing the metal cover. There's a small slot in the cover near the needle plate, place the thread in that slot.
