At JUKI we know how important it is to know your machine’s features and how to use them, so starting this year at JUKI we’ll be sharing monthly tips for creating on, and using, your beloved JUKI sewing and quilting machines! This month we’ll be focusing on the TL Series and its Automatic Needle Threader. Showcasing each step, and how the feature works, follow along below to view our Tip Video and breakdown.
Needle Up/Down Feature
The first step is knowing where your Needle Up/Down button is, and when to use it. Now the most important step to using your needle threader is, making sure the foot is in the down position (engaging the tension) and using your Needle Up/Down button to lower and raise the needle.
You’re going to start with having the needle in the highest position, before using your needle threader, so your machine can thread your needle.
Check out time stamp 1:42 to learn where you can find your Needle Up/Down button.
Threading Your Needle
Stopping right before the eye of the needle, we’ll be using our Needle Threader today to get our machine ready to create.
To start, your thread should be at the point right before needle-eye entry.
Next, we’re going to pull our thread off to the side and lower our mechanism all the way down. Now grab your thread and go behind that metal groove on the needle threader, and into the two grooves on the white piece of the mechanism, while holding your thread off to the side. Check out the time stamp 4:00 in our video about for an example of this section.
Now, when we raise the mechanism, you’ll see a loop formed with your thread on your needle. Once you see the loop, pull the thread carefully through the needle and to the right, completing your needle threading!
