How to Use Cone Thread on Sewing Machine


The prime difference between cone thread and the common thread is the spool’s size, and the sewing machines are designed to hold the standard thread spools. For this reason, today, we will discuss some processes on how to use cone thread on a sewing machine. This will be much beneficial for the people who are fond of using cone threads. The methods are discussed below.

How to Use Cone Thread on Sewing Machine


  • Method One

In our first method, you will need some specific instrument for using the cone threads in sewing machines. You have to start with a cup or a mug. We prefer something big in which you can easily fir the cone thread. You will need a pencil, and you will also need a sponge to keep the pencil firm. Then you will need a pair of scissors and some adhesives. Once you have managed all these, you can start working. At first, you have to place the mug and check whether the thread’s spool is easily accommodated in the cup.

In order to make a pencil holder, you must first cut a sponge to fit the cup’s lower diameter. Next, use a pair of scissors to make a hole in the middle of the sponge. Put some glue in that place, and then insert the pencil into the hole. After a while, adjust the pencil so that it is perpendicular to the ground.

If you don’t have a pencil, you can use a rod or stick instead. Place the rod or stick in the mug, and then set the spool in the cup. The rod or stick will be used to hold the cone thread while revolving, and you can easily connect the thread to the hook of the sewing machine. In this manner, you have to use the cone thread with bugger spools.

  • Method Two

For this method, you will need a hanger and a cutter. You can use a regular cutter to cut the wires and bend the wire. Now you have to cut the hanger from the bottom portion, and you have to keep some part on the other end. Then you have to bend the other end and make a hook. This will be used to hold the cone thread.

You need a spool holder to use an oversized spool of thread efficiently. To make one, you attach a hanger in a glass, then use glue to hold it. Then you put the cone thread in the frame and pass the yarn through the artificial hook and connect it to the sewing machine’s regular hook.
