Useful Sewing Tips

Various ways to achieve better results for your sewing projects are described below. Refer to these tips
when sewing your project.

Trial sewing

After a stitch is selected, the machine automatically
sets the stitch width and length for the stitch that was
However, a trial piece of fabric should be sewn since,
depending on the type of fabric and stitching being
sewn, the desired results may not be achieved.
For the trial sewing, use a piece of fabric and thread
that are the same as those used for your project, and
check the thread tension and stitch length and width.
Since the results differ depending on the type of
stitching and the number of layers of fabric sewn,
perform the trial sewing under the same conditions
that will be used with your project.

Changing the sewing direction

When the stitching reaches a corner, stop the
sewing machine.
Leave the needle lowered (in the fabric). If the
needle remained up when the machine stopped
sewing, press

Sewing curves

Stop sewing, and then slightly change the sewing
direction to sew around the curve. For details on
sewing with an even seam allowance, refer to
"Sewing an even seam allowance" (page 64).

stitch, select a shorter stitch length in order to obtain
a finer stitch.

If the fabric does not fit easily under the presser
foot, raise the presser foot lever even higher to

    I have unfortunat​ely moved several times in the last 5 years and cannot find the manual for my brother GX37 sewing machine. I actually have never unboxed it. Recently I needed to make something and when I sew the seams they are not catching from the bottom, I think. I finish a seam, pull it out of the machine, and the thread just comes right out. This is my first brother product, and I have to say I am not impressed. Why is this happening?
