Machine Structure and Features

Six-needle machine embroidering

Your machine has six needles, each threaded with
a different color of thread. It can sew embroidery
patterns that contain several colors by
automatically selecting the appropriate needle for
each color.
The mechanism that moves the needles up and
down is called the needle bar, and the needle bars
are in the needle bar case. The needle bars are
named from right to left: needle bar 1, needle bar
2, needle bar 3, needle bar 4, needle bar 5 and
needle bar 6.
1 Needle bar 1
2 Needle 1
3 Needle bar case
The machine automatically assigns a thread color
to each needle. There are two methods for
assigning the thread colors. With the automatic
method (default method when the machine is
purchased), needles that are already threaded with
a color that will be used in the next pattern are
assigned to the same thread color based on the
needle bar assignments from the previous pattern
in order to reduce the number of thread spool
For more professional embroidering, using a
manual color sequence allows the needle bar
assignments to easily be specified manually.
Thread color and needle bar combinations can be
selected manually to create a menu so that the
needle bar assignments can be based on the thread
color numbers. (Refer to "Selecting/Managing
Thread Colors for Each Needle Bar (Manual Color
Sequence)" on page 108.)
• Sewing is not necessarily performed in the
order of the needle bar numbers.
The thread colors assigned to the needle bars are
listed on the screen. Thread the needle bars as
1 The threads threaded on the needle bars are
indicated as shown here.
The spool pins, thread tension knobs, thread take-
up levers and thread paths, mentioned when
threading the upper thread, are different according
to their corresponding needle bar number.
