Question about Janome Sewing Machines
I've had this serger for 3 years, and now I want to learn how to use it. Even threading it seems overwhelming.
Learning from the small instruction book that I got with purchase is confusing.
Is there an online tutorial that can help me through it?
What else might help? No one close by to show me ... business or personal).
The order of threading is most important. If you letter the tension knobs from left to right A,B,C,and D. The order for threading it is C,D, B, A. There are two arms under the needle that cross each other called loopers. The order is upper looper, lower looper, right needle, left needle .I'm sure there is a diagram under the cover when you open it. Most do. It would be very helpfull to use a long threading tweezers to guide the thread through the holes. The lower looper has a hole in the back to put the thread through then through the front hole ( though some newer sergers have a lever that you put the thread on and it does it for you and over the thread of the upper looper and out the back.
It would help alot more if I knew the brand and model of your serger so these are basic instructions. Hope I helped.
