Question about Singer Featherweight II 117
I don't have my owners manuel and I don't know how to get the needle to pick up the bobbin thread ... I am pretty much a sewing "dummy" - please help
Thread the machine and the bobbin. Turn the handwheel towards you with your right hand and hold the the top thread in your left hand pulling slightly to the back of the machine. When the needle goes into the needle plate keep turning the handwheel untill the needle picks up the bottom thread and by pulling the top thread you shold be able to pull the botoom thread through the needle plate.
Practise makes perfect.
