Default Feel free to laugh at me...

Just got my Brother PQ1500S, at the recommendation of someone here in the board, and I'm excited but more than slightly intimidated at the thought of threading this new machine! My last little cheapie model had numbers on the machine with arrows telling me which way the thread goes. LOL I'm sure I'll learn it, but I think I'd better hang onto that Quick Start guide for a while!

No laughter coming from me! I've had my Singer heavy duty machine for about 3 months and still keep the instruction manual within arms reach! It's not like all machines are the same..........

I have that machine and love it, but I did have to hang on to the quick start guide for a bit to remember how to thread it. I love the automatic needle threader!!! I hope you enjoy the machine as much as I enjoy mine.

I have this machine and can't find but one con about it. I cannot use the auto threader. I can't understand the manual's line drawing of it and I have been to every Brother dealer in the area and not one had a PS1500 which of course has a different needle threader then the other Brothers. I guess I could tote the machine to the dealers but it's sure heavy. I have looked at it through a magnifying glass and still can't figure it out. I don't have a problem threading manually but one day I'd like to figure it out. No use in typing directions, without someone showing me or pictures I won't get it.

That's why they print 'cheat sheets' -

Thank goodness!

I have to have the instructions for my Janome Jem as it's different from my 'home' machine and I forget when I'm in class/Guild and I've had it over a year.
Have fun with your new machine.

BellaBoo - hopefully this autothreader is the same one you have on your machine....

Jenel - good luck with your new machine, you will love it! I have 6 machines - 2 Janomes, a Singer, a Pfaff, and 2 Brothers, and my Brother 1500 is by far my favorite!

If I figure it out, BellaBoo, I'll take a video and post it to YouTube.

Wow, that's a great endorsement! I've heard such wonderful things. So far, I haven't even turned my on. I took the instruction manual to bed with me last night and read it through. Hopefully I'll find some time to play today.
