Trial sewing

A trial piece of fabric should be sewn. 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.
Changing the sewing
direction
Stop the machine with the needle in the fabric at the
point where you want to change the sewing direction,
and then raise the presser foot lever. Using the needle
as a pivot, turn the fabric, lower the presser foot lever,
and then continue sewing.

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 inch)
thick is sewn or if the fabric is pushed
with too much force, the needle may
bend or break.
