Zigzag Stitch
The zigzag stitch is a very versatile stitch. Simply change
its width and length. Use the zigzag to finish raw seam
edges, sew narrow hems, sew satin stitch appliqué and
create beautiful monograms.

length.
q Narrower width

NOTE: Settings can be altered during sewing.

Overcasting

Simple zigzag stitching is used for finishing raw seam
edges (overcasting) on most woven fabrics to prevent
fabric from unraveling. This is the fastest way to finish an
edge.
Select 2.
Attach overlock foot C.
Do not set the stitch width lower than 5.0 when using
overlock foot C because the needle could hit wires
on the foot.
NOTE: Default stitch width is 5.0.
Place the fabric edge against the black guide on the foot.
Sew.
