Question about Husqvarna Designer I
Can you find the bobbin winder? You need to lift the "lid" and it is on the right-hand side - a small white spindle pointing towards you. Put a HV bobbin on the spindle. Look at the bobbin first - on one side the Husqvarna symbol is embossed - a crowned "H" in a circle. Be sure this H is facing you. Push the bobbin onto the spindle firmly, but not with so much force that you push the spindle into the machine (it takes a pretty big push to do that, but it has been done!) then using your right-hand thumb push in a downwards motion (towards the table). The spindle with the bobbin on it will go about one inch downwards. The bobbin winder is now engaged and you should have a pop-up on your screen. I often reduce the speed by two or even three clicks before I push the spindle down.
Pull the second thread spool - the one closest to the bobbinwinder - so it sits at a right angle to the machine. Put one of the spool holders (white plastic disks) - preferably the bigger one - onto this spool. This gives your thread a base to sit on. Put the thread onto the spool so that the thread unwinds from the right-hand side (closest to the bobbin). Take the thread end directly across to the silver "button" that is near to the first tension slot on the left-hand side. The instructions say to wind it around this and then across to the bobbin winder, but I prefer to take the thread under the silver button, around the left-hand side and then across the top of the button (sort of figure-of-eight style). Just be sure the thread goes in beneath the button i.e. does not sit in a big loose loop around the button.
The thread is then taken across towards the winder by going under the white plastic hook (looks a bit like a beak), then up and over the top of the next little silver button (smaller than the other one). Then you wind the thread around the bobbin four or five times and take the thread end over to the cutter located directly to the right of the bobbin winder. Cut the thread (if it is too short to be cut, just leave it flop down) and press the Start/Stop button.
The bobbin will fill and stop of its own accord when it is done. If it does not fill right up or is uneven (more on one side than another) there is a fix for that too. Write back here if you need to do this.
Don't forget to take the speed back to normal before sewing.
You can wind the bobbin from the needle but be sure you have a metal foot on, not one of the plastic ones. Personally I find I get a better bobbin wind the way described above and it only takes a few seconds to re-thread ready for sewing. I tend to have a big bobbin winding session and do lots of bobbins at once, especially embroidery bobbinfill. At any one time I would have at least six bobbins filled with bobbinfill and a dozen of various thread colours for normal sewing.
Do hope this helps you. Write back if this is still not clear. Did you try to Google for a video of this? I have never looked for one, but it is very likely that someone has made a video and made it available online.
