It is very difficult when it comes to describing in writing how to go about threading a sewing machine. So The best way for me to do it was to do this short video guide just below.
I find that watching someone do what you want to do yourself is always the best way of learning something new. I'm always checking out videos on youtube when I have a new job to do around my home.
It might seem a little complicated the first time you thread your sewing machine but trust me it will become second nature after you have done it a few times.
There are two main reasons you will need to thread a sewing machine. The first is because the thread has snapped while you were sewing with the machine. The second reason would be that you need to sew with a different color.
Every step shown in this video has to be followed for your sewing machine to operate properly. Miss even the smallest thing and it will simply not stitch your fabric as you want.
A little tip for successful sewing is to use good quality sewing thread. When it comes to sewing thread, cheapest is definately not the best. Even though you can't see with the naked eye. Cheaper sewing threads have lots of loose fibers that will clog up your sewing machine faster than using a quality thread.
You can see the difference in thread qualities (enlarged 60X) here. So If you are not sure of the sewing threads quality. Then buy the smallest spool and try it out first.
So when it comes to sewing curtains if you want trouble free sewing. Then set your machine up correctly at the start and use a good quality thread.

"Dear Lee, Just wanted to say I found your site last week and it was an absolute godsend. Most helpful and informative - easy to follow instructions - and my very first bay window pelmet looks like the work of a true (and expensive) professional!
The pelmet and curtains both look much better in real life than on the photo of course. My wife thinks it all looks the work of a real pro rather than a first time amateur! Many many thanks for your site.
Kind regards Neal"
