Question about Sewing Machines
I have a new (to me) Memory Craft 8000. The problem I am experiencing is in threading the machine. The first step of the threading process is to pull the thread down through a thread guide. But the guide does not hold the thread at all. The thread simply slips beneath the guide and totally loose of it and then below the second set of guides as well. When I try to sew with the machine threaded in this manner, the thread breaks. I have consulted the manual and it looks like I am threading it properly. Is there some trick to threading this machine that I do not know or is the first guide perhaps broken (it does not look broken)? I would be so grateful for any knowledge anyone might have of this machine. Thank you.
Hold the thread taut between your left hand and right hand. Pull it through #1(all these spots are numbered on your machine) and press down on the thread with your right index finger to guide the thread through #1. Keeping the thread taut, continue to pull the thread through the rest of the guides with your left hand until you reach the needle.
