channel and up left channel (6). During this process it is

helpful to hold the thread between the spool and thread

guide (4) and gently pull up on the thread.

• At the top of this movement pass thread from right to left

through the slotted eye of the take-up lever and then
downwards again. (7)

from front to back. Pull about 6-8 inches of thread to the

rear beyond the needle eye. Trim thread to length with built
in thread cutter.
