• 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, and pass the thread 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.

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.
