Welcome. I do not have an Eldredge, but I do have a New National that was made by New Home, that has the "leaf tension." There are at least three different ones. I think they are somewhat similar. When I was trying to figure out how to thread mine, I found so that helped. Perhaps it my help thread yours. Maybe a picture of the machine and the nose would help someone to be able to give better guidance. I'm not sure, but it is possible that your machine may take a different needle than the Singer 15x1 needle.

We like pictures. In order to post pictures on Quilting Board, you will probably need to reduce or compress the picture to a file size that is smaller than 2MB. How to post images can be found at
Don't forget to scroll over to the far right to find and click on the "Upload" button.

I have found that only the big red "Reply" button or "Quote" work to give me the paper clip icon to work for adding pictures.

Some additional info regarding reducing images at post #4 and images for the scroll and upload button can be found at #5 of
