Question about Janome Sewing Machines
If you are unable to wind bobbins on your machine, you can pick up a stand-alone bobbin winder for ~$30 called the Sidewinder, avlb at JoAnn's, Amazon, etc.
This is a great little accessory (avlb for battery and/or electricity) because it saves wear n tear on the machine plus multiple bobbins can be wound without having to unthread the machine.

I had that problem the first time I tried to wind a bobbin. What a mess. The next time I let the thread run through my finger and thumb before reaching the bobbin. I had to do the same on a previous Kenmore.
I've also found that the heavier Bernina bobbins don't 'jump' around.

SOURCE: Winding the bobbin?
Most of the entry level machines will have either a clutch knob or an automatic release when the bobbin winder mechanizm is engaged (put a bobbin on and more the unit to you right). If it does not disengage the clutch automaticly then either loosen the clutch wheel by turing or pulling. Sometines you have to grab the whole clutch wheel to disenage the mechanism to free wheel while winding the bobbin. Now press you foot control to wind the bobbin.

Wind the Bobbin
For the usual jobs, it is the best to use a medium sized thread.
2. Disengage the flywheel by unscrewing the coupling knob as far as it will go.
3. Place the bobbin on the bobbin winder, and push the bobbin winder to the right.
4. Pull out one of the spool pins and place the spool of thread on it.
5. Pass the thread through the bobbin winder tension discs, as indicated.
6. Wind the end of the thread around the bobbin by hand, in the direction indicated.
7. Wind the bobbin, at a medium speed by pressing lightly with a finger on the spool so as to stretch the thread better and thus fill the bobbin to a maximum. The full bobbin stops automatically.
8. Re-engage the flywheel by tightening the coupling knob.
9. Cut the thread and remove the bobbin from the bobbin winder by pushing the latter to the left.

SOURCE: Bobbin winding message
Under the top cover, on the right hand side where the bobbin winder is, there is a small switch which is activated when the bobbin is being wound. You will need to remove the cover and reposition the switch (it's located towards the front of the machine) to make it work properly.
