I just purchased the Babylock Jane and I love it so far. One question I have is that I cannot use the automatic threader. Does anyone have the same problem and have any suggestions? I would love to find a video or information on using the threader.

Thank you so much in advance for helping me. I love reading this site!!!

What seems to be wrong with it? I don't have a Babylock; I have a Janome. To get the threader to work I have to make sure that needle is in the right place so doing a needle up/down gets in the right place. Then I have to get the thread around a little metal clip on the threader. I never would have found that if the dealer had not shown me. Babylock.com has a picture of the threader but I can't tell how to do it. Someone will maybe give you some idea how to use it. It looks like a nice machine!

Here is a link to the manual for Babylock Jane. Needle threading is on page 10.

I just bought the BL Jane several months ago and love it. The needle threader is a pain to use compared to my BL Esante - it's like the hooks are not deep enough and it takes some practice to catch the thread just right.

Sometimes its just faster to cut the thread end on a diagonal and thread it old school by sliding the thread down the scarf groove... the deeper groove on the HLX needles make it really easy.

It could be needle position or the fine wire in the threader is bent out of place or if it does not work at all, may be broken.

Also, the threader does not work on smaller size needles as the eye is not large enough for the wire to pass through.
