the thread with your right hand in the following order as

To verify that the machine is threaded

1.) With the presser foot raised and the

needle unthreaded, pull the thread. You

should detect only a slight resistance

and little or no deflection of the needle.

2.) Now lower the presser foot and again

pull the thread towards the back of the

machine. This time you should detect a

considerable amount of resistance and

much more deflection of the needle.

If you do not detect the resistance,

this means you have not threaded the

machine correctly and need to rethread
