Twin Needle Sewing

As the name implies, the twin needle results in two
identical parallel rows of stitches – utility or decorative.
The "Twin Needle" key should be touched whenever
using a twin needle. Be sure to test the stitch before
sewing because twin needles are available in a variety of
widths. The maximum stitch width available with the
"Twin Needle" key activated is 3.0 and that maximum
width is based on a standard 2 mm wide twin needle.
NOTE: If you select a stitch (before touching the twin
needle key), and it is not suitable for twin needle sewing,
the twin needle key will be gray and disabled.
NOTE: This warning message will appear if you try to
select either the single repeat key or alphabet key with
the twin needle key activated. This also occurs if the first
stitch on a page is not compatible with the twin needle
Turn OFF the power switch and insert a twin needle.
Insert the spool stand and additional spool pin. Place
spool pin felt and second spool on additional spool pin.
