It's easy! Start from the thread holder at the top and go left - hook it under the hook which is behind the round disc that the bobbin winds around, then forward down thru the tension, then under the straight metal bit that's below and slightly to the left of the tension, then up into the hook (slide it behind and then slide forward into the hook), then back down and flip it into the small hook (which is just under the 'straight metal bit' mentioned above) and thru the needle! :-) Hope that helps. The machine might be an oldie but it's a goodie! cheers Lynda

Looked in several of the websites and can't find this one free but it is purchasable at
I think this was one of the "made under licence for Elna" machines, not a Swiss made model.
Hope this is of some help to you.

SOURCE: I have mislaid the instructions
This is a machine made under licence for Elna back in the 80's I believe. So should be a bobbin inside a bobbin case mounted vertically. Try this link for threading up, it should be very similar.
Many machines have this bobbin case design and they all work much the same way, you need to place the bobbin into the bobbin case with it turning the right direction, click the thread into the tension spring on the outside of the bobbin case then latch it into the rotary hook of the machine, usually there is a little latch on the bobbin case that holds it in.
Top thread is usually fairly obvious, from the spool through an eyelet, through the take up lever, through a tension device, then down to the needle.
Always thread up with the pressure foot raised as this opens up the tension device and allows the thread to seat in correctly.
You can probably buy a manual for your machine from either sewusa.com or www.sewingpartsonline.com or "sewing machine relics" websites. Or just search ebay, there are several vendors who sell pdf copies of different manuals there.
I hope this helps you get sewing with your Elnita, four thumbs up if so.
