KNOWING YOUR SEWING MACHINE
CAUTION
• Use only twin needles that have been made for
this machine (part code: 131096-121). Other
needles could break, and damage the machine.
• Do not sew with bent needles. The needle
could break and injure you.
• You cannot use the needle threader to thread
the twin needle. Instead, thread the twin
needle by hand, from front to back. Using the
needle threader may damage the machine.
• When using the twin needle, be sure to select
an appropriate stitch, otherwise the needle
may break or the machine may be damaged.
• Select a stitch width of 5.0 mm (3/16 inch) or
less, otherwise the needle may break or the
machine may be damaged.
