SEWING BASICS ———————————————————————————————————————————————————

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

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
a
When the stitching reaches a corner, stop the
sewing machine.
Leave the needle lowered (in the fabric). If the
needle was raised, lower the needle by turning
the handwheel toward you (counterclockwise).
CAUTION
● When using the twin needle, be sure to raise
the needle before changing the sewing
direction. If the fabric is turned while the
needle is lowered, the needle may bend or
break.
b
Raise the presser foot lever, and then turn the
fabric.
Turn the fabric using the needle as a pivot.
c
Lower the presser foot lever and continue
sewing.

Sewing curves

Stop sewing, and then slightly change the sewing
direction to sew around the curve.
When sewing along a curve while using a zigzag
stitch, select a shorter stitch length in order to obtain
a finer stitch.

Sewing thick fabrics

■ If the fabric does not fit under the presser foot
If the fabric does not fit easily under the presser
foot, raise the presser foot lever even higher to
bring the presser foot to its highest position.
CAUTION
● If fabric more than 6 mm (15/64 inches) thick
is sewn or if the fabric is pushed with too
much force, the needle may bend or break.
