However much it's explained to me, I have yet to intuitively grasp how a sewing machine works (not the mechanism - what it does with the thread). Even with this animation - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Lockstitch.gif - as far as I'm concerned, it throws the whole needle-and-machine through hyperspace to get the thread through the loop.
