Singer XL 6000 thread
I bought a boxfull of mini-cones of thread only to find that it is wound counter-clockwise. I can still embroider with it, but it won't re-wind, so I have two problems:
since the auto-re-wind doesn't seem to work, how can I use the automatic thread exchanger
how do you get thread unwound anytime the auto-rewinder doesn't work?
(I tried turning the spool upside down, but since the pointed end of the cone was down, thread kept falling below the spool and winding itself around the spindle)
