Question about Singer Sewing Machines
To thread the upper thread of the sewing machine, place your spool on the spool holder. Then work from right to left after turning the hand wheel to bring the take-up lever to its highest point. Bring the thread to the left to the first thread guide and then go down. Bring the thread down and between the thread tension discs (down on the right and up on the left). Hold the spool tightly and pull the thread against the take up spring until the thread enters the retaining fork (at about 11 o'clock on a 12-hour clock) at the thread disc area. Pass the thread from right to left through the hole in the take-up lever. Bring the thread down through the guide on the face plate and then through the guides at the needle bar bushing and needle clamp. Put the thread through the eye of the needle (again from right to left).
AJ953185 is the serial number of the machine. It should be a model Singer 201 built after Nov. 6 1950. Most Singer manuals are available here: http://www.singerco.com/support/instruction-manuals . The direct link to the manual to the 201 is http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/651_201.pdf . For a picture of the upper threading diagram see page 11 (page 12 of the PDF). The bobbin threading pattern is on pages 14-15 (pages 15-16 of the PDF).
I hope this helps.
