Remember to make sure you leave the presser foot up when you

make the most. When the presser foot is up, the tension disks

can't get the thread between them if they are together.
Now there's a tidbit that I needed to know. I always leave the
presser foot down to put my finger behind the needle so I can
see the hole to put the thread through.
Makes sense. Probably what happened. Thanks Sharon.
I always thread the *upper* part of the threading path with the
presser foot up, as Sharon says that opens the tension disks.
Then when I'm down to threading the needle, I put the presser
foot down, because as you say, I can see the eye of the needle
better. No requirement to have it 100% one way or t'other! ;-}
I admit, the "putting the presser foot down for threading the eye
of the needle" trick was something I discovered at about age
