1. Attach a spool of thread to the machine with the upper spool pin and spring. When you pull on the thread, it should unwind from the spool counterclockwise. Pull the thread from the spool, through Thread Guide 1. Next, slide it between the two discs of the thread tension dial.
2. Pull the thread through the guides in this order. down through Thread Guide 2, down through the Thread-pulling bar, to the left through Thread Guide 3 and down through Thread Guide 4.
3. Raise the needle using the Handwheel and bring the thread through the eye of the Needle from left to right.
As you go right to left across the top of the machine is the threading pattern and then down through the thread pulling bar ( it moves back and forth across the front of the machine as it runs) and then down the arm to the needle. Use a thread bobbin on the spool pin at the begging of the threading process. This machine does not use spools of thread.
Hope this helps.

Barbie Sewing Machine: threading
directions by KKmom solved the threading problem for me. I think the pin with the spring on it might be the bobbin winder. I used the spool pin on the TOP of the machine. You might have to pull it up. Also, the red button in front of the discs(tension) is the tension control. You might need to adjust it slightly to get the proper stitch. The patern? of the thread from the tension disc seems to look like a ziz-zag pattern - then down from the third thread guide. Thanks to KKmom. You certainly made short work of solving my threading problem.
