Question about Bernina 1008
I hope I can explain this in an understandable way!
1. Pull the end of the thread from the spool to the left and "click" it into the little metal guide (on the top of the machine) that is at the back of the long **** in the top. It's easiest to do this by holding the thread tight between your two hands, placing it behind the guide, and pulling forward until it clicks in.
2. for the remaining steps, let the thrread slide between the fingers of your right hand, keeping a little tension on it, as you thread the machine with your left hand.
3. Bring the thread end forward, laying the thread into the ****, and continue downward, along the right side of the vertical silver bar/hook thingy.
4. Bring the thread under that bar from right to left, and go back up towards the top of the wide **** in the front of the machine. As you pull up, the thread will click into the lower bar/hook thingy.
5. Lay the thread along the right side of the wide ****, go over the top of the needle bar (the part that goes up and down in the ****) and bring it down the left side. It will click into the needle bar.
6. Bring the thread back down towards the presser foot. Right in front of the screw that holds the foot on, there is a hook that opens on the left side. Slide the thread behind this hook, and then thread the needle from front to back.
7. Hold onto the end of the thread and run the needle down and back up once. Pull on the thread, and it will pull up a loop of the bobbin thread. Stick the tip of your scissors or seam ripper into the loop and pull the end of the bobbin thread out.
8. Slide your top thread through the slot in the presser foot so it comes out from underneath the foot, and you're ready to go! (Be sure and hold onto both threads for the first few stitches when you start a seam, to keep if from jamming up inside.) For the bobbin, pull the case out of the machine by grabbing the hinged latch on the bobbin case. 2. Turn the case over, drop the bobbin in, pull the thread through the ****, and continue pulling to the left until it pops under the hook thingy that has the screw at the other end. 3. It's important to know whether your model calls for the thread to be coming off the top or bottom of the bobbin when you drop it into the case. On my machine (1630) it comes off the bottom, so that when you pull on the thread, the bobbin spins clockwise. On my mom's old machine from the 1960's, it was supposed to spin counterclockwise. If you don't have the instruction book to tell you this, you can try it both ways and see which one gives you the best tension. Or you could call your local Bernina dealer, give them the model number, and ask them! 4. Slide the bobbin case back in until it clicks in. If it won't click, rotate it slightly left and right until you find the position where it will click in. Let me know if you need any clarification.
