While changing the bobbin tension, it is possible that the first needle will not work properly. In this situation, you will have to go back, again and again, to change the bobbin for every needle. You have to set the bobbin and just leave it alone without touching it. It is crucial to set the bobbin once and then leave it for making high-quality designs. In this way; one portion will not be tight and it will become easy for you to make embroidery on the fabric. Another important thing about it is the cardboard covers present on its outer side.

After cutting the thread, then turn to the backside and remove the top as well. Keep the work continue until all the design is removed and the secret for the completion of this step is to use soft hands and stay gentle.
