​If you're like most people, you probably have a dressmaker sewing machine in your closet - and if you don't, you should! This type of machine is perfect for sewing up those pesky little details on your clothes. But before you can get started, there are a few things you need to know about how to wind a bobbin on a dressmaker sewing machine. Read on to learn everything you need to know to get started!

What is a bobbin and how does it work?

A bobbin is a small, flat, round object that sits in the middle of a dressmaker sewing machine’s needle wheel. It’s what the machine uses to wind the fabric onto the sewing machine’s thread spool. When you start sewing, you put the right side of the fabric facing up and place the bobbin on top. To sew, you use the machine’s needle to poke through the fabric and the bobbin. The motor will then pull the thread such as Nylon DTY and Polyester DTY through both layers of fabric and around the needle, creating a piece of cloth!

How to wind a bobbin on a dressmaker sewing machine

When it comes to sewing, one of the most important tasks is to wind the bobbin on a sewing machine. If you don’t wind the bobbin correctly, your machine might not sew properly and you could end up with a ruined garment. Here’s how to do it:

1. Open the cover of your sewing machine. This will usually be located on the top left-hand side, or on the front if your machine has a transparent cover.

2. Find the bobbin winder (if there is one) and put it in the “on” position. This is usually indicated by a small gear wheel turning around an axis that goes through the centre of the bobbin winding post. Make sure that your Singer or Janome has a proper bobbin winder - some older machines do not have one and you'll need to use a hand crank instead.

3. Hold the right end of the thread and feed it into the hole at the top of the winding post Winding Machine. You may need to pull it through several times until it’s fully threaded. The number of wraps (or turns) will depend on how thick your thread is
