    Ok, the manual is on order, and I swear I won't bug you guys again, but anybody know what button I press to get the bobbin wound? It is written on the machine how to thread for winding the bobbin, and I know I did it right, but how do I tell the stupid machine I don't want to sew and want to wind the bobbin????? Thanks, Virg

    I have a babylock decorator'shoice. When you put the bobbin on the winder pin, you have to slide it a little to the right to the "thingy". Then push the start button in the front near the needle. It should automatically start and say "winding bobbin."

    OMG you will love this machine if only for the needle threader. Check out the video. The bobbin winding is just like on my Espire. You put the thread on the bobbin and push the bobbin towards "the thingy" - the machine will do the rest. No button to push.

    I have the Decorators choice Babylock and love it.
    I will never use a foot pedal again. I love the auto needle treader and the scissor cutting button.

    Do NOT use pre wound bobbins from babylock on it. They are wound with embroidery weight thread and it WILL mess up the bobbin tension on your machine. This little lesson cost me $150. dollars to learn.
