Raise the pressure foot. Turn the hand wheel toward yourself until the needle is in a high position.
Pull 10 cm of thread from your new bobbin and insert it into the bobbin case under the slide plate. It should fit snugly.
Hold the bobbin in place and guide your thread into the first bobbin notch. There are two notches, and the first notch is the one on the right. Then guide the thread down the slot on the bobbin to the left and thread it into the second notch.
Draw a few inches of thread across the bobbin diagonally toward the back of the QuikFix machine.
Hold onto the thread on the outside and close the slide plate. The thread should come out through the slot between the needle plate and the slide plate.
