    For years I couldn't figure out how a stitch was really formed. I understood some of the process, but until I saw your graphic description of how it happened, I never knew. I could not figure out how the top thread interacted with the bobbin thread. It's the bobbin hook!! I can't tell you how happy I am to know this. Thank you so much for this perfect explanation.
