Part 5 – Threading The Machine
This video will show you how to thread the sewing machine.
Okay, the next step is to insert it if it’s not already there. The top part of the needle is wide and flat on one side. There is a small screw that needs to be loosened in order to place the needle up through the groove, flat side facing the back. Tighten the screw and you are ready to thread the needle.
Next, place the spool of thread on the back thread spool spindle. Make sure the thread is going counter-clockwise.
Now, not all sewing machines are exactly the same, but the principle is the same. Most manufacturers place a diagram on the machine to follow. This video will show you the basics, but make sure you refer to your manual to make sure you are doing it right.
You will guide the thread, along the guide marks, up and down and, finally, through the needle. You will probably need to cut the thread to make sure it’s not frayed so that it will be easier to thread the needle. Sometimes it helps to place your finger behind the needle so you can see the hole. Then, while holding the thread between your other fingers, push the thread through the hole.
