Heirloom stitching

When sewing with the wing needle, the needle holes
are enlarged, creating a lace-like decorative stitch.
This is used to decorate hems and tablecloths on thin
or medium weight fabrics in addition to plain weave
fabrics.
CAUTION
● The needle threader cannot be used with
the wing needle, otherwise the sewing
machine may be damaged. Manually pass
the thread through the eye of the needle
from the front to the back. For details,
refer to "Upper Threading" (page 28).
Insert the wing needle.
a
• Use a 130/705H 100/16 wing needle.
• For details on inserting a needle, refer to
"Replacing the needle" (page 39).

turn the handwheel toward you
(counterclockwise) and check that the
needle does not touch the presser foot. If
the needle hits the presser foot, the
needle may bend or break.
