  • Pull the cotton down the left hand side of the machine and thread through the eye of the needle from left to right
  • Pull about 3 inches of cotton through the needle and lift the presser foot so that the end can be fed through the centre of the foot and out the back of the machine under the foot
  • When starting to stitch keep a slight manual pull on the end of the cotton until the first few stiches are completed
