Sewing Attractive Finishes

There are many factors that go into sewing beautiful embroidery. Using the appropriate stabilizer (see
page 157) and hooping the fabric in the frame (see page 158) are two important factors mentioned earlier.
Another important point is the appropriateness of the needle and thread being used. See the explanation
of threads below.
Upper thread Use embroidery thread, or country embroidery thread intended for use with this machine.
Other embroidery threads may not yield optimum results.
Bobbin thread Use embroidery bobbin thread intended for use with this machine.
When using other kinds of embroidery bobbin thread, use the bobbin case (pink screw) included with this
machine (The bobbin case originally installed in the machine has a green screw). (See page 236 for how to
remove the bobbin case.)
If you use threads other than those listed above, the embroidery may not sew out correctly.
• Before embroidering, check that there is enough thread in the bobbin. If you continue sewing without
enough thread in the bobbin, the thread may tangle.
• Do not leave objects in the range of motion of the embroidery frame. The frame may strike the object
and cause a poor finish to the embroidery pattern.
• When embroidering on large garments (especially jackets or other heavy fabrics), do not let the fabric
hang over the table. Otherwise, the embroidery unit cannot move freely, and the pattern may not turn
out as planned.

I Embroidery Needle Plate Cover

Under some conditions, based on the type of fabric,
stabilizer, or thread being used, there may be some
looping in the upper thread. In this case, attach the
included embroidery needle plate cover to the
needle plate. Attach the cover by inserting the two
projections on the underside of the cover into the
notches on the needle plate as shown below.
a Groove
b Projection
c Notch
To remove the embroidery needle plate cover, place
your fingernail in the groove and lift the plate out.
• Push the embroidery needle plate cover as far
as possible to attach it. If the embroidery
needle plate cover is not securely attached, it
may cause the needle to break.
• Do not use the embroidery needle plate
cover for any applications other than embroi-
