    The flat side of the needle faces left. To thread the needle thread from right to left or inside to outside. Not front to back. Hope this helps! I had mine in wrong and took it to repair man for him to tell me what I was doing wrong:) Google Featherweight Sewing Machines and you will find manuals for it.

    I was going to post a link to some manuals on eBay, but this is even better - and FREE.
