Bobbin Winding of Sewing Machine (Lesson 3)


Hello friends

Welcome to Vandana Creations

 Friends till now you are fully trained to make straight lines on paper with your sewing machine. Afterwards you have leant how to sew on the curves, semicircles and blocks. In today’s learning we are going to wind our bobbin so that we can sew on fabric. A firm seem, plays an important role in fixing the life of the garment. The lower thread that is gained from the bobbin case and this thread should be tight and evenly distributed on the bobbin. So lets get ready with our machine. Start by winding the bobbin.

Lesson 3 : Proper way of winding the Bobbin

Procedure to wind a domestic sewing machine:

Step 1: Uncover your Sewing machine and clean it, before starting.

Step 2 : Put the selected thread on the spool pin of the thread stand.

Step 3 : Put the required thread spool on the ‘Spool Pin’ given on the top near to the ‘balance wheel’.

Step 4: Pass the thread through the guides to your extreme left(near the thread take up lever).

Step 5: Bring the thread back near the ‘Hand wheel and wind a bit manually on the bobbin .Some bobbins have a small hole where you can secure the end of your thread before you start windingCut the thread tail right at the very bottom

Step 6: Place the bobbin in to the pin on the’ Bobbin winder’.

Step 7: Lift the ’pressure foot’ up by using pressure foot lifter.

Step 8: Run the machine.

Step 9: Soon your bobbin will be filled equally with the thread.

 

Procedure to wind Bobbin in Single Needle Lock Stitch Machine:


Step 1 : Uncover your Sewing machine and clean it, before starting.

Step 2 : Put the selected thread on the spool pin of the thread stand.

Step 3: Pass the thread from the hole given on the top strip of the thread stand.

Step 4: Pass the thread through the tension post near to the ‘Bobbin Winder’. Before winding your bobbin, you must pull your thread through the tension discs properly.

Step 5: Pull the thread and wind a bit of thread manually around the bobbin. Some bobbins have a small hole where you can secure the end of your thread before you start winding. Cut the thread tail right at the very bottom

Step 6: Place the bobbin in to the pin on the’ Bobbin winder’.

Step 7: Switch On your machine and set it’s Speed to the maximum. (As higher Speed will make a tight and even winding of the bobbin there by resulting in a beautiful seam.)

Step 8:Lift the ’pressure foot’ up by using pressure foot lifter.

Step 9: Pull the liver of bobbin winder towards the bobbin press the foot paddle to run the machine.

Step 10: Soon your bobbin will be filled equally with the thread.

Bobbin winding troubles

 The bobbin is probably one of the most important parts of sewing, and with just a few tricks, you can do it properly. As most of the Sewing machines looks similar but there are variations in their shuttle sizes which leads to the difference in the size of bobbin and bobbin case. Even if it fits into your machine and you think it’s okay, if it’s not the exact proper bobbin and bobbin case for your machine then it is definitely going to create troubles for you. So it is very important to use a specifically designed bobbin and bobbin case for particular model of machine. As it may reduce many of the sewing defects.

1 Bobbin winding beneath the bobbin: Some times thread winds underneath the bobbin on the spindle, resulting in a neatly-spun spool of thread under an empty bobbin.

Reasons and rectification:

* This trouble occurs some times when the thread is not bound securely around the bobbin manually before placing the bobbin in a winding pin.

*Secondly some times the bobbin is not inserted right in to the winding pin. This leads to the non alignment of the thread to the bobbin thereby leading to thread winding underneath the bobbin.

*Some times when the open edge tail of the thread gets wound down on the spindle , then also this problem occurs. So, friends too long tail of the thread should be cut out before fixing the bobbin on the spindle, so that it should not wind there. 



2 Thread winding too loose on bobbin : Generally the problem of "thread wound too loose" on the bobbin arise which tangles the thread and results in tangy stitches.

Reasons and rectification:

*In single needle lock stitch machine this fault generally arise when the bobbin is wound at low speed.

3 Bobbin not winding:

 Reason and rectification :

*If your rubber ring is worn off then also the ‘trouble of bobbin not winding’ arises. The solution to it will be to change the rubber ring.

*The winding pin is use to have a wire ,where the bobbin stuck, some times that wire use to get damaged and does not gives grip to the bobbin.

4 Defective bobbins:

*A defected bobbin can snag your thread or cause your bobbin to wind unevenly

* Plastic bobbins are more likely to have problems as they can get worn out easily. I will suggest you to always use a metallic bobbin to avoid the problem.

*The bobbin and bobbin case should be rust free, you can make a practice to oil them on regular bases for the smooth movement of bobbin in the bobbin case. But make sure that the oil should be given only when the both are empty and the excess oil should be wiped off before filling thread in to it as thread will absorb the oil and can give marks of strain on the garment.

5 Improper placement of thread spool: Put the thread properly on the spool pin. Many time it has been found the operator does not bother much about the spool while winding thread . Sometimes it use to fell down on the ground or use to get stuck some where. This leads to tight thread winding. So always make sure that the spool should be properly placed on the spool pin and should deliver the thread undisturbed.

 6)Rusted or coursed tension disk: Rusted or coursed tension disk can also cause the distraction in the path of thread. Tension disks should be clean and smooth and spring should work smoothly. But make sure that the oil should be given only when the both are empty and the excess oil should be wiped off before filling thread in to it as thread will absorb the oil and can give marks of strain on the garment.
