I am a beginner sewer, I just purchased the Emerald 203...I can't remember how to get the bobbins threaded, I looked in the manual, but it doesn't say how to thread it or how to thread a bobbin, which is...
The Husq Vik. machines have a raised white arrow that guides you in threading and winding bobbins. There are 2 ways to wind a bobbin. The one that I prefer is by threading the machine.
Begin by raising the needle to the highest position. This is done by turning the fly wheel towards you until the needle is at highest point.
Next, Place your spool of thread on the thread spool, with the thread coming over the top like a roll of toilet paper. Make sure you have a spool cap at each end of the spool. (your mannual will tell you what the parts are if you do not know what I am talking about).
Next, take your thread to the left, you should see a "track to follow". You will go left for a very short distance, then straight down (still following in the track), when you get to the bottom of the track, you make a "u-turn" up moving the thread to the take-up-lever. If you do not see the take-up-lever, you do not have the needle in it's highest position. Hook your thread around the take-up-lever from right to left.
Then follow the track down to the needle. You have a thread guide that hooks to the left just at the top of the needle - slip the thread in that guide by moving left to right. Thread the needle from front to back.
You should have it threaded now and ready to wind a bobbin. Simply take the thread under the presser foot and to the right - make sure the presser foot is raised. Also, always make sure to use a metal, not a plastic, foot when using this method.
Hold your bobbin with the writing side (crown on it) facing up. Wrap your thread around it clockwise about 4 times. Place bobbin on the bobbin winder. (top far right of machine close to fly wheel.) Make sure it is snapped down.
Push bobbin up to engage and lock. Slowly step on foot pedal. Bobbin should begin winding. Do not wind too full. Leave about 1/16 around to allow the bobbin to move freely in the bobbin case.
If you always keep the bobbin with the writing facing up, you will never have to worry about getting it wound the wrong way.
Hope this helps
