Preparing for Lower Threading

Winding the bobbin


The bobbin provides the thread for the underside of the stitches a sewing machine forms.
If you're just starting to learn how to sew on a sewing machine you should know that keeping the bobbin tight is very important.
It is advisable to have extra bobbins so that you don't find yourself unwinding bobbins to change the color of the thread on the sewing machine.

 * note

Only use the bobbin designed for NS40!!! (part code : SA156)
If bobbins from other models are used, the machine will not operate correctly.

Step 1 : Turn on the Sewing Machine.
