So just how do you thread a bobbin. The thread is too thin and flimsly to work it down the bobbin tube. I tried a dental floss threader but it has a loop and a straight piece and when you stick the straight piece down the tube it stops when the loop touches the top as at that point it is too big. So how do thread the bobbin?

Start the thread in the tube then suck the other end like a straw. The thread will come through the bobbin.

You can get a needle threader at a sewing supply, or just make one out of thin wire. Or just tie with monofilament; it's easy to thread.

Easier if you "wet it" first...trust me. Look it up.

Sucking it through usually works. I prefer that to a threading tool.
