General Purpose (B)
General Purpose (A)

• Turn the machine off.

• Insert the twin needle with the flat side of

the shank toward the rear of the machine.

• Thread the machine as you normally would

for single needle stitching, except pass the
thread between the centre and the back
tension discs A, and through the left eye

of the twin needle.

• Insert a second spool pin into the hole on

the top cover of the machine, as illustrated.

• Thread the machine in the usual way,

except pass the thread from the second
spool between the centre and the front

tension discs B, as shown.

• Pass the thread through the remaining

points, making certain to omit the thread
guide just above the needle and pass

thread through right eye of needle.

• Draw both threads under the foot and back

along with the bobbin thread.

• Slowly lower the needle into the hole in

the needle plate by turning the hand wheel
toward you to make sure the needle clears
the plate.

• Make sure not to use a stitch width greater

than that what is recommended when twin

needle stitching.
