Sewing Heavyweight Fabrics

The sewing machine can sew fabrics up to 6 mm
(approx. 1/4 inch) thick. If the thickness of a seam
causes sewing to occur at an angle, help guide the
fabric by hand and sew on the downward slope.
CAUTION
• Do not forcefully push fabrics more than
6 mm (approx. 1/4 inch) thick through the
sewing machine. This may cause the needle to
break and cause injury.
I If the Fabric does not Fit under the
Presser Foot
If the presser foot is in the up position, and you are
sewing heavyweight or multiple layers of fabric
which do not fit easily under the presser foot, use
the presser foot lever to raise the presser foot to its
highest position. The fabric will now fit under the
presser foot.
Memo
You cannot use the presser foot lever after the
presser foot has been raised using the
"Presser Foot Lifter" button.

I If the Fabric does not Feed

If the fabric does not feed when starting to sew or
when sewing thick seams, press the black button on
the left side of presser foot "J".

be fed.
Memo
• Once the trouble spot has been passed, the
foot will return to its normal position.
• When "AUTOMATIC FABRIC SENSOR
SYSTEM" (Automatic Presser Foot Pres-
sure) in the machine settings screen is set to
"ON", the thickness of the fabric is automati-
cally detected by the internal sensor so the
fabric can be fed smoothly for best sewing
results. (See page 55 for details.)
