    1. Bring the thread from the spool to the guide at the top. There were several types. The small disks may be flat or upright, or it may just be a guide without the disks.
    2. Bring the thread down to the slot at the bottom of the tension mechanism. It may look solid, but there is a cut or slot to bring the thread up into. Pull this up.
    3. It should now hook through the small hook end of the spring that is visible. It is like a small wire.
    4. Now, pull the thread up to the arm. You don't "thread" it, you slide the thread into it through the slot.
    5. Take your thread down to your needle. On one of my machines, it has a little dent at the bottom to help guide the thread. Another has nothing. From here, it's just like any other, pull thread through the guide on the needle. Needle threads left to right.

    Hope this helps!

    Wow, I feel like I robbed the people I bought mine from. $1. It was $2 but I called it old, and "would you give me $1?" Go figure.

    Haha....I sent them an e-mail Nancy. They're nuts if they think they can get that much for a machine that may need partial assembly and who knows if it works. They live in my town too...maybe I should get their address and go school them. :>

    I have some accessories that came with my little green clone. I know the quilting foot guide, but not sure what the other feet are for. Can you tell me what they are, and what is the best way to clean them up? http://i32.photobucket.com/albums/d1...IMGP2527-1.jpg

    There are three bobbins, one is different from the other two. The extra belt is nice. The red box contains most of the 100 size 140 needles that came in it, the little pack has 4 100's in it. Since I sent my gson most of my really heavy leather, I doubt I will use them up, lol. I would be happy to share some of those 140s, if anyone needs some.

    I will be sewing some denim and upholstery fabric, and this looks like it is going to be the perfect machine for it....not to mention it is just as cute as can be, lol.

    It looks like dried on oil rather than rust - I'd drop them in some denatured alcohol and then dry them with a paper towel if it's oil. If it's rust, I rub them with oil then rub off the rust with some aluminum foil. If it is smoke, use tooth paste but you want to get it all off and then you want them very dry so they don't rust. A drop of oil on the hinge won't hurt. Triflow will also cut through oil.
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    That is disgusting! These people just don't have a clue what these machines are really worth!
