PREPARING FOR BOBBIN WORK

Required Materials

■ Bobbin case and bobbin cover

a Bobbin case (gray)
There is a notch at the location indicated by the
letter "A".
a Bobbin cover
There are two small v-shaped tabs on the back of
the bobbin cover as indicated by the letter "B".
The tabs help hold the bobbin in place so it does
not lift up while thick thread is being pulled through.

■ Lower thread

We recommend the following types of threads for
bobbin work.
<Sewing/Embroidery>
No.5 or finer hand embroidery
thread or decorative thread
Flexible woven ribbon
(When embroidering: approx. 2mm
(approx. 5/64 inch) recommended)
<Sewing only>
Fine embroidery ribbon (silk or
silk-like material) (3.5 mm (approx.
1/8 inch) or less, recommended)
* When wide ribbon or heavy weight threads are being used, we
recommend test sewing with and without bobbin case tension
being applied to see which gives the best stitching results.
If wide ribbon such as 3.5mm (approx. 1/8 inch) is to be used,
we recommend that bobbin case tension not be applied. Refer
to page 312 for more detailed instructions.
Note
• Do not use thread heavier than No.5 hand
embroidery thread.
• Some threads may not be appropriate for
bobbin work. Be sure to sew trial stitches
before sewing on your project.
PREPARING FOR BOBBIN WORK

■ Upper thread

Sewing machine embroidery thread (polyester
thread) or monofilament (transparent nylon) thread.
If you do not wish for the upper thread to be visible,
we recommend using transparent nylon
monofilament thread or polyester light weight
thread (50wt. or above) that is the same color as the
lower thread.

■ Needle

Use a needle appropriate for the upper thread and
fabric being used. Refer to "Fabric/Thread/Needle
Combinations" on page 69 and "Embroidery Step by
Step" on page 186.

■ Presser foot

Utility stitches or decorative stitches:
Monogramming foot "N"
Free motion sewing: Free motion quilting foot "C",
Free motion open toe quilting foot "O" or Free
motion echo quilting foot "E"
Embroidery: Embroidery foot "W"

■ Fabric

Be sure to sew trial stitches on a piece of scrap
fabric, which includes the same threads and fabric
as what is being used in your project.
Note
• The sewing results may be affected by the
type of fabric used. Before sewing your
project, be sure to sew trial stitches on a
piece of scrap fabric that is the same as the
fabric used in the project.

    please provide a part number for the zigzag embroidery plate,it's included with the 6700 D, however no part number is referenced anywhere in the stupid manual, and there is no item anywhere to replace it? After spending 10 K you think you could put a part number in a book so I can reorder one? my machine jammed and this one has a huge bur on it that cannot be worked out :-(
