How to thread the bobbin on an Elna 3005. I have lost the instruction book. (Your category does not include sewing machines)
This are the instructions from Wiki for Elna 1500, which is a similar model:
First, raise the presser foot lever and turn the flywheel towards you to raise the thread take-up lever to its highest point.
Next,, place your spool of thread on the horizontal post and hold in
place with the spool cap. You know that little nick in the spool where
you tuck your thread so the spool won't unravel? Make sure that nick is
pointing to the right.
Now draw your thread to the left and "click" it into the little
silver loop. A 1" oval thread guide sits to the left of that silver
loop; draw your thread around the left of the thread guide.
Now you're going to loop your thread through the tension discs.
You'll see two "cracks" in your machine. First run your thread DOWN
through the RIGHT crack, then immediately UP through the LEFT crack.
At the top of the LEFT crack is your silver thread take-up
lever. This is probably the trickiest part of threading your machine
because the lever is always kind of inside the machine. But you can do
it! Pass your thread from RIGHT to LEFT through the back of the loop at
the top of the silver lever.
Whew! We're almost there.
Now draw your thread right back down the same crack you pulled
it up before. You now have two stationary guides above your needle.
Pass it through the thick silver guide and then through the thin silver
guide. Both of these moves are kind of a left-to-right motion.
Now thread your needle from FRONT to BACK.
You're done -- well, except for the bobbin.
Hold your bobbin spool above the bobbin case so that it looks
like a letter "P" Draw the bobblin thread from RIGHT to LEFT through
the small crack in the silver part of the bobbin case, then pull the
thread straight toward the back of the machine.
Now turn your flywheel one revolution toward you so that your
upper thread picks up the bobbin thread. Now close your bobbin cover,
Congratulations! You did it!
