  3. Slide spool pin holder/cap (illustration 2) firmly over rim of spool to prevent thread from tangling.
  4. Lead thread passing it first through the lower slot of the thread guide. Next through the upper slot, leading the thread to the right and around (illustration 3).

  6. Pass thread end, from inside, through small hole in rim of bobbin.
  7. Holding thread end, step on speed controller to run machine until desired amount of thread is wound. (Winding stops automatically once bobbin is full.)
  8. Cut thread; push bobbin to the left and remove it from bobbin winder pin.
  9. Trim thread end from top of bobbin.
  10. Press the bobbin winding indent on hand wheel to its original position. If necessary, turn hand wheel to engage needle movement.
