Sewing Mechanism : How Sewing Machine Work

How Stitches are formed in a Sewing Machine?
The 3 main key mechanisms to form a stitch in a sewing machine are:
  • Needle Mechanism
  • Bobbin & Shuttle Mechanism
  • Feed Dog Mechanism

These 3 mechanisms are carefully coordinated so that the machine can make perfect equal sized stitches. The top thread i.e. the needle thread pokes through the eye of the needle while the bottom thread i.e. the bobbin thread is fed from the bobbin. While stitching, the up and down movement of the needle and the rotation of the hook ring, the upper and lower threads are looped together to form the stitch.

Loopers serve to create thread loops that pass from the needle thread to the edges of the fabric so that edges of the fabric are suppressed within the seam. Sergers use looper threads instead of a bobbin thread.
