Hi roscoepc1.....The threading pattern is identical to single needle. The only changes are that you now are threading 2 spools of thread, one thread for each needle. The only change that I reccommend, but not neccessary, is that while threading through the tension dial, lay your threads between separate discs, and not together between the same pair of discs. Your tension dial contains either 3 or 4 discs.......please update your post if you have any further information or questions.....good luck my friend

1250 embroidery machine how do you thread for a double needle?


Do you mean the Brother Innov-is 1250D embroidery machine? Insert your twin needle. Follow the normal directions for threading the upper thread and manually place this thread through the eye of the left-hand needle from front to back. For the right hand needle, insert the extra spool pin in the bobbin winder shaft. It gets put on perpendicular to the shaft. Swing down the spool pin so that it is horizontal, pointing towards the needle bar. Place another spool of thread on this spool pin and secure it with the appropriate-sized spool cap. The thread should come off the top front of the spool. Follow the threading directions for the upper thread from step 8 (the thread guide cover) through step 10. Do not run this second thread through the needle bar thread guide. Manually thread the right hand needle eye. Make sure to use the zig-zag foot with the twin needle.

The directions for threading the machine when the twin needle installed is on page 36-37 (pages 38-39 of the PDF) of the manual. The manual is available from Brother support on the product page: http://www.brother-usa.com/support/modelinfo.aspx?R3ModelID=NV1250D . The direct link to the manual is currently: http://www.brother-usa.com/VirData/Content/en-US/HAD/Consumer/UsersManual/UM_Innov_%c3%ads%201250D_EN_2825.PDF .

I hope this helps.

Can I use a twin needle on a Singer Trafition? It seems to only sew one line of stitches.


Probably depends on the model. Was a twin needle included with your starter kit?

This one indicates it will take a twin needle:
2277 TRADITION

Your owner's manual or the product specifications are probably the best source for information.

Instruction Manuals

BTW, you are using 2 spools of thread, right? You need to thread both needles with separate spools (do not twist the threads when threading!).

How to Use Twin Needle on Your Sewing Machine

Be sure to verify the machine is set to straight stitch. Any zig-zag could break one or both needles!

You also will have to thread the needles manually as the needle threader will not work on twin needles.

ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the top thread!

Thread breaks on the 2340CV Brother. Doing two needle and the right needle is breaking at the needle. Change needle and retreaded several times


Probably depends what that needle is hitting that is causing it to break. Make sure the presser foot and the needle plate hole are large enough to accommodate the twin needle. Twin needles come in different widths so if yours is too wide, it would break. However, it could be possible that your machine is slightly out of alignment that does not show up until you try to use a twin needle. Also, make sure that your thread is not causing the needle to break--could be misthreading. Some machines have separate guides and tension disks for twin threads. Those that don't have that accommodation may have more difficulty using a twin needle.

I just need instructions to thread a Bernina Virtuosa 160 for pintucking


Your owner's manual should have instructions for using a twin needle.

Most machines can use a twin needle. However, some machines have two tension disks so one can separate the two threads and get equal tension. (The Bernina 930 has two tension disks, so am assuming your newer machine does also.) Look at the top of your machine where the tension mechanism resides and see if there is a right and left side. In either case, do NOT thread both threads at the same time as the threads can become twisted. When threading the machine, ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot, thread one thread completely. If threading the left side of the tension disk, also thread the left needle. Then thread the second thread, making sure to use the other side of the tension disk and needle.

Just a reminder to be careful using any zig-zag or decorative stitches since a twin needle requires a narrower stitch width to avoid broken needles.

How to use a twin needle on my SR2000 toyota sewing machine


First, verify that your machine can use a twin needle. Most machines take will use a twin needle will have separate thread guides and duel thread spool pins.

To thread it, thread one thread all the way through one of the needles and then thread the second thread through to the second needle. This will help keep the threads from twisting.

Can I use a twin needle on my Janome MW3018? Doesn't mention it in my instruction manual and I don't know how to thread the machine for twin needle sewing.


Twin needles can be used on any machine. Just make sure you use the correct presser foot......one that allows both needles to work without hitting the foot. Also.........you cannot zig-zag or use any other fancy stitch with a twin needle.......it is strictly for straight sewing. You have to use 2 spools of thread .....thread your machine with both threads as if they were one thread but separate the threads when you get to the needle. There is no change to the bobbin. Happy sewing. I can't be bothered to go to all this trouble so I just sew 2 rows to get the same look. Ofcourse you have to be very good at sewing perfectly straight seams doing it this way. Try both methods on a scrap and see which method you prefer.

Have you looked at your manual or bought the more expensive book from your dealer? I have found my book for my Evolve a VERY good investment (70 bucks, but worth every penny these past 2 years!)
Baby Lock have very good cust. service either on the web or right at your dealer. Most dealers will give free lessons upon request.
I hope this helped
