Pretty good info about how to thread a bobbin and then get the machine ready for sewing. Some of the shots were out of focus and it wasn't clear exactly what was going on with her hands.

Good overview of how to make a bobbin and thread the machine. Would have been nice to include more info about settings, but that might be in another video if this is a series.

Great remainder for getting the bobbin thread to come out and be ready to sew. Thanks, it is always my problem when I sew once a year.
