how to sew on a vintage treadle – part 3: top thread
We’ll start off by placing the spool in place on top of the machine.
Now comes the tricky part: There will be lots of different hooks to guide the thread through. As a rule: if it’s there it’s meant to be used, so just try to find your way through there as best you can. If you have trouble sewing later, go back and try a different way.
On my machine it goes like this: top tension
I have marked all the places the thread needs to be guided through on my machine with red dots. Your machine may be a little different, but the general direction of the thread shouldn’t differ all too much.
Part 4 will deal with changing the needle and adjusting tension and stitch length.
