MT-1501 How-To: Threading – How to Thread Your Machine


Hello, and welcome to part one [of] two of our threating video series how to thread your machine and replace spools in this video we will be discussing how to thread your machine from the very beginning and how to thread your machine once it has already been threaded Before we dive into how to thread [your] machine. Let’s go over some of the parts. We’ll be referencing the back metal rack the Middle Metal rack the front metal rack Spool one, which will be threaded through needle number one the top tension knobs the bottom tension knobs the Spring lover the Machine Head and the presser foot Now that we’re familiar with what these parts look like let’s get started To begin threading your machine snap each thread spool onto the spool pins the spool pins are the 15 pins secured with [Gray] foam and a clear plastic reel do not get confused with the three pins on each of the far ends which are for storing bobbin thread for easy reach when replacing your bobbin as You insert your spools be sure to place [the] thread colors you plan to use the most near each other We recommend placing the spools next to one another on the first row. Keep in mind your machine comes pre threaded so if you haven’t already unravel the threads from the top metal rack Back row of threads will be threaded through the back metal rack The middle row of threads will be threaded through [the] middle metal rack and the front row [of] threads will be threaded through the front Metal rack in this video. We’ll be discussing how to thread needle number one. You’ll be using spool number one Which is located on the far right end of the front row of thread spools in this instance? We are looking at the machine from the right side So spool number one will be the first spool from the left you [will] be able to find the spools that Correspond with each needle by counting from the front to the back on each Row This is spool number one two three four five six seven and so on until [you] reach spool 15 Because your machine comes pre threaded We’re going to first show you how to replace a spool before going into how to thread your machine from the very beginning First take the loose end of the existing thread and tie it to the loose end of the new thread in a simple knot Once you have your knot unspool number one repeat the process in all fifteen spools before proceeding now [go] to the front of your machine and unravel the thread that’s wrapped to each of the wheels on [both] sides of the machine head Once you unravel it make sure the threads are separated and hanging individually Next grab the thread from the presser [foot] and pull each thread all the way through Until you no longer see any of the old thread while you pull the thread you’ll see the new thread and the knot you created traveling to the thread path Continue to pull until you see the knot you created reaches past the needle bar Now clip the thread [right] above the knot and repeat the process on all remaining needles once you have completed all 15 It’s time to thread the Needle Pass the thread through the eye of the needle starting from the front to the back Once you make sure your thread has gone to the needle pass the thread down the presser foot now You can rest your thread on the spring you should leave about two inches of thread hanging and trim the excess now We’re going to go over how to thread your machine from the very beginning first We’re going to pull on the thread from spool one and pass the thread through the vertical eyelet of the front metal rack Next pass the thread through the small eyelet located behind the first tension knob Once completed pass the thread to the right side of the top tensioner in between the tension disks Making sure the thread is inside the tab at the three o’clock position Be sure not to leave the metal plates open they should be touching after inserting the thread now remove the thread tension plastic Tube then using the included threading tool from your tool kit, hook the thread to the end of the tool and Feed the thread through the plastic Tube Once the threat has been fed through the Tube unhook the thread Next snap one end of the thread Tube to the metal thread Rack and the other end to the machines head Then pull the head through the Tube and lay it under the metal clip After completing this step raise the top disc of the tensioner toward you and slip the [thread] to the right side of the tensioner? Keeping the thread inside the tab at the three o’clock position Make sure the metal plates are touching and the thread is between the plates For the next step locate the post above the thread break wheel just below the number that indicates which needle you’re on To thread this section you’re going to pull the thread and place it on the [left] side of the post above the thread break wheel Next guide the thread to the right side and then under the thread break wheel in a Clockwise direction until you reach a full turn The thread should now exit at the bottom of the thread break wheel to the left side of the post Now place the thread under the clip by lifting up the clip and snapping it back into place next guide the [heads] through the slit on the right side of the lever arm as You do so make sure the thread falls behind the gray cover as shown next you will thread the CZech spring and lever arm But before doing so pull the spring lever down this will make threading the CZech spring easier Now coming in from [the] right [side] [pass] the thread over the outer right side of the rollers and then in through the opening in the center Next pass the thread through the spring from the right to the left Then take the thread and pull it [through] the opening in the center and pull it out over the outer left side of the rollers now pass the thread back in through the slit and Pull the thread through the opening of the lever arm from the right to the left Then pass it down to the same slit and through the first eyelet Next keep pulling the thread until you can pass it through the second eyelet Located behind the spring now that you’ve reached your needle we’re going to thread the needle like we did earlier in this video First pass the thread through the eye of the needle starting from the front to the back Once you’ve made sure your thread is in the needle pass the thread down the presser foot now You can rest your thread on a spring remember to leave one to two inches hanging and trim the excess After you finish threading make sure to reposition the spring lever to its standard 90 degree angle last take a step back and make sure that all needles appear to be threaded correctly [if] They seem to be uniform you’re ready to stitch a test pattern Thank you for watching part 1 of the threading series in part 2 you will learn how to check and adjust thread tension stay tuned

  1. It Look Like Your Not Using Gunold Which I Find It Is Not Consistent In Thickness Which Messes The Tension Change. It's Not Madeira Which Is Nice,
    Looks Like Isacord The Place I Work For Uses The Other Brands And It Shows In The Design?
