□ Threading the upper thread

This is a simple operation but it is important to carry out

correctly as by not doing so several sewing problems could

- Start by raising the needle to its highest point (1), and also

raise the presser foot to release the tension discs. (2)
Note: For safety, it is strongly suggested you turn off the
power before threading.

- Lift up the spool pin. Place the spool of thread on the

holder with the thread coming off the spool as shown. For
small thread spools, place small side of spool holder next

to spool. (3)

- Draw thread from spool through the upper thread guide. (4)

- Guide thread around thread guide (5) pulling thread

through pre-tension spring as illustrated.

- Thread tension module by leading thread down right

channel and up left channel (6). During this process it is
helpful to hold the thread between the spool and thread
guide (4).

- 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)

- Pass thread behind the flat, horizontal thread guide. (8)

- Now take thread behind the thin wire needle clamp guide

and then down to the needle which should be threaded

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

rear beyond the needle eye. (9)


If your sewing machine is equipped with the factory
installed optional automatic needle threader, instructions

for use can be found on page 14.
