Winding a Bobbin

A dear colleague asked to borrow a bobbin this week. I knew we had similar machines, so I recorded a quick video to go with it as a reference. Here you can a see a little bit of my beloved 6244 (along with the green tape I’m currently using as a quarter-inch guide!).

By making this video I learned a lot. I haven’t used the thread guide post during winding (only the tension disc). I will now! And, I found that my manual has different instructions for raising the bobbin thread (the video features how my grandma taught me on this machine). I’ll try it with those instructions next (with the slide plate closed)!
