My first instructable inspired by a question in the forum. Actually credit is due to my lovely wife because before tonight I had no idea how to do this.
We are threading a Brother LS 1711 purchased at Wal-Mart for about $50. My wife says more expensive machines still break and most of the fancy stiches aren't necessary. What a great woman!
Step 1: Getting Started
(I'm assuming you know where to place the spool of thread because I somehow didn't get a picture of it.) Place the spool of thread on top of the machine and pull the thread over to the first metal hook. Slide the thread under then pull it forward for the next step.
