Threading a sewing machine
The Sewing Master website has lots of 'how to' videos for Bernina, Singer, Husqvarna Viking & Pfaff sewing machines & overlockers. The videos include threading, using each of the stitches and other functions of the machines.
Although how a sewing machine is threaded varies depending on the brand and type of machine there are a lot of similarities across all machines so once you know how to thread one machine it's often easy to transfer this knowledge to other machines.
This display on how to thread a Bernina 1008 sewing machine is one of the displays at Lady Margaret School in London (teacher Tamsin Mitchell). It is very big, meaning it can be seen by students anywhere in the room which encourages independent learning. The display has a 3D effect with the use of yarn to represent thread on top of the images
