We found this really cool diagram/animation on the Material Mama blog and thought Sewing School students would benefit from it’s awesomeness.
This animation demonstrates how a sewing machine works – specifically the bobbin mechanism. You know it’s doing something down there to keep things together while you sew, right? Well this is what it does!
You can see how the blue bobbin thread is wound around the green top stitch thread as you happily stitch away.
