  1. 1

    Insert the threaded bobbin into the bobbin case under the slide case and lead the thread into the slot and under the spring.

  2. 2

    Draw the thread into notch at end of spring; pull about 3 inches of thread across bobbin and close the slide plate.

  3. 3

    Raise the take-up lever to its highest point and turn the hand wheel toward you to raise the needle.

  4. 4

    Lead the thread through the machine's threading points. Make sure you have enough thread to draw through the needle's eye for sewing.

  5. 5

    Thread the needle, using the threader if necessary. Pull 2 to 3 inches of thread through the eye.

Tips and warnings

  • Use the stitch length regulator to adjust the number of stitches per inch.
  • Use the pressure adjustment knobs to ensure smooth handling of fabric while stitching.
