Introduction: Bobbin-winding a Reel With Thread.
Using the bobbin winder of your sewing machine and a modified thread reel, you can wind thread onto the reel to get multiple reels of thread in the same colour, which is perfect for multi-thread machines when you really want a certain colour!
Step 1: A Little About Myself...
Step 2: WHY?
Step 3: Requirements.
Step 4: Trim the Bottom Lip of the Empty Reel Spindle.
Step 5: Whittle the End of the Chopstick/additional Reel/spool Holder With the Stanley Knife/scalpel to Fit the Spindle of Your Sewing Machine's Bobbin Winder.
Step 6: Thread Up Your Sewing Machine for Bobbin Winding and Attach the Thread-end to the Reel. Position the Reel Onto the Bobbin Winder, Then the Chopstick Down Through the Center of the Reel Into the Mouth of the Winder's Spindle - Firmly.
Step 7: Using Slow Speed, Guide the Thread With Your Fingers Lightly and Evenly Onto the Rotating Reel.
Step 8: When Finished, Cut the Thread and Remove the Chopstick and Reel. Swap the Modified Spindle for an Unmodified One and You're Good to Go!
