I have a Simplicity serger that is driving me batty when it comes to threading it. I do FINE if I can tie the thread onto the former thread and pull it through. But if it unties itself along the way (because I didn't tie it strong enough), that's where I have trouble.
It has one of those little threading holes. You're supposed to lift the presser foot (I did), engage the threading lock (I did), and then feed 1-inch of thread into the hole. Once you get the thread into the hole, you push this lever which is supposed to pull the thread through the system and thread it for you.
I cannot get that 1=inch of thread into the hole!!!! The instructions say "don't wet the thread". I've tried that anyway, but nothing seems to work.
Does anyone have this kind of system, and what's your trick? It's supposed to be the cat's meow when it comes to threading, but so far I've found this too frustrating. This machine was inherited from my late aunt - it's a beautiful machine when the threading isn't an issue -
