Thread the needles from separate spools of thread (or a bobbin and a spool placed on one spool pin), with the thread unwinding in opposite directions to prevent tangling as they feed through the machine. At the upper tension disk, place one thread on one side of the disk and the remaining thread on the other side. If the machine has a thread guide above the needle that separates the threads, use it. If your machine doesn't have a separating guide, place one thread through the guide and leave the other free.

This came from Hope it helps.

My Brother ult specifies a slightly different procedure... I'd check your manual... if you don't have it.. check out the manufacturer's website.. often you can download a manual or request that they send you one....

I have an old Viking machine that is twin needle capable. The threading diagram is the same as Sheri described.
