Okay. You really don't need to know this, but I always love to show how a stitch is
actually made. What we're going to do is, we're going to go ahead and open up our bobbin
case. I want you to watch down here. I'm going to hold on to both my threads up here on the
top of my machine, and I'm going to turn the hand wheel towards me. What you're going to
notice is that as the needle goes down, there's a little place that hook is going to bring
... You see this blue thread coming in front of that bobbin area. You notice that that
thread, that's your needle thread.
It gets linked around the bobbin, kind of plays jump rope down there. Then that way
once your needle comes all the way up, then that's how a stitch is made. You want to see
it again? All the way down. Thread passes in front of the bobbin case, and then the
take up level pulls all that extra thread out by coming all the way up to the top. Then
where your thread has been twisted right here, that's the stitch. Isn't that amazing?
