Take thread from the spool of thread and wrap it around the bobbin in a counter-clockwise direction five to seven times.
Depress the power switch to begin winding thread around the bobbin. Place your index finger under the thread and your middle finger above it to guide the thread to ensure the bobbin is evenly filled.
