Thread the Sewing Genie

The Sewing Genie is a handy tool that is unlike traditional sewing machines because it is lightweight and compact. However, it is also very unlike traditional sewing machines because it is not very intuitive on how to thread it. The instruction manual might be somewhat unclear, but once you get used to threading it you can use it for any simple craft project. Because the Sewing Genie is so easy to carry, you can take it anywhere for sewing projects on the go.


Step 1

Unwind your bobbin approximately 3 inches. Drop the bobbin into the bobbin case on the bottom of your machine.

Raise the needle up as high as it can go by turning the hand wheel toward you.


Step 5

Slide your spool of thread onto the top spool pin.

Pull your length of thread through the threading points indicated on the machine.
