The bobbin case has a little inverted tooth that catches the upper thread from the needle and pulls it in a circle to lock it and create the stitch.

Where does the bottom bobbin thread go?

Once you have a wound bobbin, it goes in the machine’s bobbin case to supply the lower thread as your machine sews. To load your bobbin, lift your needle and presser foot to the highest position (your machine will either use a hand wheel or a button for this) and remove the bobbin cover.

Why is my bobbin thread showing through?

If the bobbin thread is on top, that means the top thread is pulling more, or, has more tension. That means either the top thread is too tight or the bobbin thread is too loose.

Why is my thread coming out of the needle?

The most common reason the thread will jump out of the needle is thread tension. Make sure you have the right thread tension and check the needles for burrs. Finally, make sure to use a quality thread.
