  • Pass the cotton through the hole (B) in tension disc bracket
  • Wrap the cotton clockwise around and between the tension discs (C).
  • Pass the end of the cotton upwards and to the left through the hole (D) in the tension disc bracket.
  • Pass the end of the cotton to the left through the needlebar sidearm (E).
  • Lower the presser foot and thread the needle (F) from left to right, ensuring that the correct 24x3 needle is being used.
  • Raise the presser foot and pass the end of the cotton down through the centre of the presser foot and draw it out the back of the machine UNDER the presser foot.
  • When the presser foot is down NEVER turn the handwheel without material under the presser foot or damage may occur.
  • When starting to stitch keep a slight manual pull on the end of the thread until the first few stiches are completed.
