How to fit the bobbin
It is very important that the bobbin is dropped into the bobbin casing correctly even though it looks as if it can go either way up.
The thread must come off the bobbin anticlockwise, as shown in the diagram on the bobbin cover.
Drop the bobbin in place. Take the thread round the little notch and pull it round clockwise, as shown in the diagram.
All sewn up!
Lower and raise the needle to pick up the bobbin thread before replacing the plastic cover, to avoid trapping the thread tail in the cover, which can prevent it being picked up.
