  1. I am having a major issue, and I hope you can help me. I have looked at your info, as well as a bunch of videos. I have threaded the top thread, threaded the bobbin, inserted it and the top thread. But the part I am stuck on: How to bring the bottom thread (from the bobbin) up??

    • Hold the needle thread in your hand, turn the wheel to make the needle go down and up. It will catch the bobbin thread and pull both up. Just slide something under the upraised pressure foot (scissor blade) and grasp both threads.

    • Just lower the needle down into the machine with the wheel and your hand, (NOT your FOOT on the electric,) ONCE! Now take hold of the upper thread and just pull the lower thread up through the hole, as it will have caught just as if it had made a stitch! Now pull both threads to the back under the presser foot and place your fabric under it. Lower your foot and you are ready to sew!

  2. Thank you so much for posting these threading guides. Just got my machine yesterday. Today I replaced the broken check spring and was able to figure out from the illustration on the threading guide that my “wrong” check spring is right one after all. Or my Atlas doesn’t care which check spring it has. It’s sewing like a dream now. Thanks a bunch.
