Sewing machines make sewing faster and simpler, as well as producing higher quality stitches than manual methods can.

Sewing machines rely on several essential auxiliary parts in order to operate correctly. These include the bobbin thread spindle, needle plate gap adjustment screw, and tension discs.
Bobbin Case

Your bobbin case holds the lower thread for your sewing machine and typically consists of either metal or plastic containers with small screws with green paint on them. If they’re removable like those featured here, you can swap out different ones to identify whether the issue lies with either your bobbin case or hook system.

Make sure that the bobbin is not overfilled as this could cause it to bulge and not fit properly into its case. Also ensure that its thread double-backs from its source to the tension system on its way from the bobbin tension unit back through to its destination bobbin case tension unit.embroidery machines that connect to computer
Needle Plate

The needle plate sits beneath a sewing machine’s needle and presser foot, featuring a small opening called a needle hole through which stitches are created by passing needle through to create stitches.

The right needle plate enables precise, high-quality stitching across multiple sewing techniques. Its innovative design prevents fabric shifting, damage and distortion.

Needle plates have small holes that help the fabric feed smoothly during stitching. This prevents thread debris and lint accumulation that could otherwise damage needles from building up in the needle hole. Furthermore, many plates feature seam guides and markings for creating consistent seam allowances, while some even come equipped with teflon coating making needle plate changes easier without using screws and drivers.
Needle Up/Down Lever

This small lever located directly behind your presser foot controls needle height while sewing. Understanding its operation is essential when doing buttonholes or zippers.

If there are thread loops under your fabric, chances are the take-up lever hasn’t been raised enough to give top thread slack. This is a common issue among beginners; but don’t despair: fixing this with just one push of a button!

This button featuring scissors-shaped iconography can be found on many computerized machines. When activated, it trims both top and bottom threads of your work, making it simpler for removal from the machine.
Thread Guide

Beginner sewists may not realize there are two threads involved with sewing – a top (spool) thread and a bottom (bobbin). If either thread is improperly directed it could cause tangling, breakage and tension issues that hinder their efforts.

Thread comes in many varieties and is classified according to what fibre it’s made from and thickness (weight). Cotton, polyester and nylon thread are among those most frequently seen, while others such as clear/invisible thread (for use on fabrics) or heavy duty outdoor (used for tents and climbing gear) may also fall into this category. Upholstery thread has also proven its mettle by withstanding high stress loads on furniture seats and cushions.
Bobbin Winder

Bobbin winders are designed to quickly upload thread from a spool onto the lower thread bobbin of your sewing machine. Typically equipped with thread guides and tension plates to ensure evenly wound bobbins, stop buttons can also be included so as to address any potential issues during winding process.

Bobbin winders operate using standard AC power, with an on/off button for simple use. Light indicators provide visual confirmation when it’s time for full-bobbin winding; lightweight and portable versions make these machines perfect for taking along to workshops and sew-cials.
Needle Threader

One of the most indispensable tools for beginning sewing machine owners is a needle threader. This handy device consists of a metal wire loop with an attached hook on one end which makes threading any needle easy and efficient.

There are various needle threaders on the market, some featuring extra features like thread cutters or spool holders. But an ideal needle threader should only require a few simple steps to use effectively. Keep in mind that keeping your threader clean and not bending its wire arm will extend its lifespan and maximize your use out of this useful sewing tool.
