Catching the Bobbin Thread.
(1) Raise the presser bar hand lifter (1) to lock the presser foot (2) in its raised position.
(2) Hold the end of the needle thread (3) with a little slack. Turn the hand wheel toward you until the
needle moves from its highest position down and back up to its highest position. If the needle
thread (3) is correctly timed, it will catch the bobbin thread (4).
(3) Draw up the needle thread (3), and the bobbin thread (4) will come up with it through the hole in
the throat plate.
(4) Pull the end of the bobbin thread (4) entirely through the hole. Lay both threads back under the
presser foot (2).
