Can this Continental CE10131 use elastic thread?

I am not able to get the bottom bobbin with elastic thread to work. The manual is no help.

Ok, so I finally got the elastic thread to work, but it's not shirring. I even tried steam, and no luck.. Any suggestions on how to accomplish shirring with this machine? I have lots of stuff to do and I can't do it with this machine.

To get the elastic thread to gather up the fabric, it needs to be under quite a lot of tension. Try winding the thread on the bobbin firmly and increasing the bobbin tension.
