The bobbin is an essential part of sewing machines. They hold the thread below the needle and help to keep seams together. To prevent bobbins from breaking, and to ensure they are ready for the next session, sewing machine owners must take care of their bobbins.

There are many sizes of bobbins, so it is important that you choose the right size for your machine. Some machines need bobbins made of metal, while others prefer plastic. The best way to determine which type of bobbin is right for you is to consult your sewing machine owner’s manual. You may also ask a sewing supply store salesperson.

Bobbins can be purchased pre-wound, or unwound. Pre-wound Bobbins are pre-wound with cardboard on both ends. Some machines may have problems with this type bobbin so you might need to remove the cardboard.

Bobbins for sewing machines have a small screw that helps to adjust the tension of the thread. If you feel that the bobbin is too tight, you can turn the tension adjustment screw clockwise or anticlockwise to loosen up the tension.

Bobbins can be found in a variety of materials, such as plastic, metal, and ribbon. Although many bobbins have numbers or letters branded on them, this is not always necessary.


The sewing machine’s handwheel can be used for controlling its operation. It provides a selection switch that can be set to alternate between the needle and thread cutter.

An interlock element is fixed to the end of the main shaft of the sewing machine. The clutch element is held in an engaged or disengaged state by the interlock element. The interlock element also has a central aperture that houses a threaded portion for the shouldered screw.

The Sewing Machine Master also includes a printed circuit switch. In addition, a buffer circuit 67 is included to shape the signal to a sharply defined square-wave signal. The circuit also includes an AND gate 47 and a flip-flop 61.

The sewing machine control apparatus can be used to control other sewing machine operations. For example, it can be used to stop the sewing machine on a second count. Other applications include reinforcing stitches in a garment and eliminating over-travel in the forward direction.

The handwheel of a sewing machine can be made up of multiple parts. For example, the handwheel can be made of a plastic material. It can also be made from metal.

Thread take-up lever

A thread take-up lever is a small device that is used to help take up the upper thread during sewing operations. This device can stretch seams and pull the upper thread through fabric. The take-up lever is located just below the threading area of a sewing machine. It is usually an L-shaped piece of metal or plastic, which can be cleaned out to remove jams and clogs.

There are many factors to consider when choosing the best take-up lever. Some of the most important elements include its design, size and material. As you may have guessed, the take-up lever is a necessary component of any sewing machine.

It is not the only thing that helps to take up the top thread on a sewing machine. The spool gear, and the presser feet are also important. These two pieces of hardware must be replaced or inspected in order to ensure that they work properly. The take-up lever can be re-threaded, or replaced if one or more of these parts are damaged or missing.

A better experience when stitching is achieved by correctly using a take-up handle. But, if you are having trouble using it, you may want to check out the service manual to see if you need a new one. You can then replace the old one with the correct model.

Open-toe foot

Open-toed feet are a great tool for stitching applique, decorative stitches or ribbons to fabric. The foot not only provides superior visibility but also gives you greater control over your project. It has a groove on its underside to prevent your stitches from sliding and a tunnel to feed them.

You will need to choose the right stitch for your project in order to get the most from your open-toe foot. The foot is designed to fit most standard low shank sewing machines. However, your machine may need a low shank adapter to fit the foot.

The Open Toe Foot is not only a great choice for applique and satin stitches, but it can also be used for squaring of fabric edges. You can also use it for quilting and other projects that require more than simple squaring of fabric edges. To create an interesting effect, you can use 1/4″ bias tape to cover a raw edge.

You can buy open-toe feet in either clear or metal. Clear ones are ideal for sewing around delicate areas such as seams. A metal version is an option if you are looking for something more durable.

Darning plate

If you are a seamstress, then you know that darning plate is an essential tool in your sewing machine. This accessory is used to fix holes and tears on your fabric. It can also be used to create interesting patterns on your fabrics.

Aside from darning, darning plates can be used for other things as well. You can use them to create logos and designs. They are also useful in making buttonholes.

The cost of a good quality darning plate ranges from eight to fifteen dollars. These prices vary depending on the material used and the brand. But it is best to buy one that is from the same manufacturer.

You can buy a darning plate online. Some of the brands you can choose from are Singer, Brother, and Cutex. They all have different models and you should pick the one that suits your needs.

Before you use a darning platter, it is important to familiarize yourself with its functions. You should also read the manual to learn how to use it. Afterwards, you should test your skills on a piece of cloth.

Darning plates are very easy to install. However, you should make sure that you do it correctly. You must align the holes in the plate with those on the needle plate. The screws can be tightened as well.

Accessory tray riser

If you have a free arm sewing machine, then you might want to consider getting an accessory tray riser for it. This riser has a raised platform and drawer that can be used to store your materials and keep them out the way. It can also be used as a sewing stand, especially for large fabrics.

Sewing machines come with different parts that make the process easier. For example, a thread guide is a small bar at the top of the machine that allows thread to flow smoothly through it.

Another useful piece of equipment is the Automatic Bobbin Winder. This allows you to wind a new bobbin without having to manually thread it. However, this does require a certain amount of effort.

The Automatic Thread Cutter is an example of a new feature on a sewing machine. It cuts thread after sewing, saving you from having to stop and cut the thread yourself.

The cover is one of the most important parts of a sewing machine. Not only does this protect the machine from damage when it is not in use, but it also helps keep it clean.

Transport handle

Carrying handles have been developed for portable sewing machines. These handles were attached to the machine in a variety of ways and have not been satisfactory. The handle was difficult to collapse and required expensive parts to hold it in place.

The present invention provides a simple and inexpensive way to attach carrying handles to portable sewing machines. The handle can be folded up when not in use and pushed onto the top of the machine. This allows the handle to be easily pushed off the top when necessary. It also allows the handle to be pressed out of the way when not needed.

The carrying handle includes a hand grip and depending legs. The legs are cylindrical in form and extend substantially perpendicularly from the hand grip. In one embodiment, the legs are slidable on inside cylindrical surfaces in bushings. Other configurations are possible.

One embodiment of the invention uses split bushings that fit into a leg opening. The bushing is then tightened to each depending leg. The bushing allows the legs to contact the casing in surface-to-surface contact. When the handle is in the carrying position, the terminal pads on the legs engage the casing and support the machine.
