If you are looking to sew your own clothes, but don’t have a dressmaker sewing machine, here is a step-by-step guide on how to thread it.
How To Thread A Dressmaker 2 Sewing Machine
If you are a dressmaker who uses a sewing machine with a Thread Cart, then it is time to remove that Thread Cart and replace it with a new one. To do so, first remove the thread from the spool by lifting the front cover of the machine and removing the cable tray.
Then, thread the new thread onto the spool pinion and replace the spool pinion. Next, replace the cable tray and lift the front cover of the sewing machine to finish!
Remove Thread Cart From Machine
To remove the thread cart from your sewing machine, follow these easy steps: Push down on the pedal arm so it locks into position and unscrew the thread catcher. Lift up the catch and pull out the thread catcher.
Push the pedal arm back down to its original position and screw in the thread catcher. Reattach the main cover and you’re ready to start stitching again!
Lift Front Cover
Thread a dressmaker sewing machine with the correct size needle and thread to sew a lift front cover. Follow the steps in the video below to sew a lift front cover: After following the steps in the video, you will have a perfect lift front cover ready to be sewn on your machine.
Now that you know how to sew a lift front cover, you can create any type of cover for your sewing machine!
Remove Cable Tray And Spool Pinion
If you have a dressmaker sewing machine, removing the cable tray and spool pinion is simple. The tray can be detached by loosening two screws on the side. Once the tray is removed, you can use a flat blade screwdriver to pry off the spool pinion.
Be careful when handling the parts because they are delicate and may break if not handled properly. After removing the spool pinion, clean both parts with a dry cloth or vacuum cleaner to ensure proper functioning of your machine.
Thread The New Thread
When you are ready to start sewing your new dress, be sure to thread the needle correctly. There are two different types of threads that come in a dressmaker – straight and zigzag.
Straight threads are used for making plain fabrics, while zigzag threads give a more finished look to projects. In order to thread the machine, follow these simple steps: Open the top cover; Lift out the bobbin case.
Find the “thread spool” (it will have a number on it), and Insert it into the hole on the side of the machine next to the “spool holder. You can also thread the machine by hand if you prefer, but this is more difficult because you need to hold both pieces of fabric at once while pulling the thread through the eye of the needle.
Once you have threaded the machine, make sure that you put it back together in the same way as when you took it apart so that you don’t lose any of your progress!
If you ever get lost or need help with something specific related to sewing your new dress, don’t hesitate to ask a friend or search online for step-by-step tutorials. Enjoy sewing your beautiful dress – and remember to always use correct Threading Techniques.
Lower Front Cover And Replace Spool Pinion
Dressmaker sewing machines come with a lower front cover that you can replace if it becomes worn or damaged. When replacing the spool pinion, make sure to use the correct size and type of screwdriver.
If your machine doesn’t have a lower front cover, you can also replace the needle rollers. Always check your tension before starting to sew by turning the dial on the upper arm of your machine to the left or right until it moves freely.
If your machine has a zipper foot, be careful not to pinch the fabric between the teeth of the zipper foot and fabric-covered table when zipping or unzipping your garment. Cleaning your machine is essential for its long life – follow these tips for keeping it in good working order.
Dust mites are small creatures that thrive in warm, dry environments – they love sewing machines! To kill dust mites and prevent them from building up again, regularly clean all surfaces of your machine with a damp cloth and an anti-dust product (such as Febreze).
Never use harsh chemicals or abrasives to clean your machine – they may damage fabrics and finishings inside and outside of the machine. Store your sewing machine in a cool, dry place where children cannot reach it
Replace Cable Tray
If you have a dressmaker sewing machine, it is time to replace your cable tray. The old cable tray can become scratched and worn over time, which can impact the performance of your machine.
When it comes to replacing your cable tray, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, make sure that the new tray will fit into your machine properly. Second, be sure to find a quality replacement that will last for years.
Finally, be sure to measure the space where the old tray was located before making a purchase. Once you have found the right replacement, installation is easy and won’t take long at all! Be sure to keep your dressmaker functioning at its best by replacing the cable tray on a regular basis.
Threading The Sewing Machine
Follow these simple steps to thread a dressmaker sewing machine: With the right side of the fabric facing up, line up the bobbin case with one of the guides on the bottom of the machine.
Position the needle in the upper left hand corner of the fabric and pinch it between your thumb and first two fingers. Holding onto both ends of the fabric, gently guide it down into the bobbin case and then pull it through to create a knot.
Repeat this step to attach another piece of fabric to your project. When you’re finished stitching, tie off all threads by making a single knot at each end. Be sure to oil your machine regularly to keep it running smoothly and prevent fabrics from sticking to its threads.
Sewing With Basic Patterns
Threading your dressmaker sewing machine can be a daunting task, but with a few basic patterns and some patience, you can get started. Use the diagram below as a guide to threading your machine: When starting out, it is helpful to practice on simple pieces of fabric first.
