I just picked up a sew crafty mini on sale. I got it home and can not for the life of me figure out how to change the bobbin or for that matter fill it up with a different color thread. The instructions are fairly useless - they just show how to thread it and how to take it off the machine.
Anyone use one of these and know how to do this?

i don't want to bum you out, but those things are terrible. unless you hardly ever do any sewing, i would recommend taking it back and saving up a few more dollars for a simple White or Brother.  They are relatively cheap ($150) at Wal-Mart, K-Mart, or even JoAnn's when they have a sale.  I have a Brother that i've been using for 10 yrs. and it is a faithful machine.  I started to teach my little sister to sew and I was going to give it to her (good excuse to buy myself a new one too), but then my mom bought one of those and she hates it!  Sorry!  I really don't want to be the bearer of bad news.

on the other hand, i'm not positive but i think the bobbin winds the same as a normal machine.  i would suggest following the booklet instructions step-by-step over and over until you've got it.  that is unless you decide to go for something better  Grin

Thanks for the quick reply. I have an Elna 2000 that I adore which is why I got the sew crafty ($7) to do jobs that I don't want to risk my "good" machine on. The problem is that it either missing a page of instructions or there are no instructions on the bobbin questions.

that was a good idea (to use it for other projects)  i think this machine will be fine for you then.  I would just call the company.  usually they can either help you over the phone or send you a new instruction booklet.
