Start sewing.

For details on starting to sew, refer to "Starting
sewing" on page 22.
Two lines of stitching are sewn parallel to
each other.
Note
● When using the twin needle, the stitches
may become bunched together, depending
on the types of thread and fabric that are
used. If this occurs, increase the stitch
length. For details on adjusting the stitch
length, refer to "Stitch length dial" on
page 11.
CAUTION
When changing the sewing direction, be
sure to raise the needle from the fabric,
and then raise the presser foot lever and
turn the fabric. Otherwise the needle
may break or the machine may be
damaged.

Thread tension

The tension of the thread will affect the quality of your
stitches. You may need to adjust it when you change
fabric or thread.
Memo
● We recommend that you do a test sample
on scrap of a fabric before you start to sew.
■ Correct tension
Correct tension is important as too much or too little
tension will weaken your seams or cause puckers
on your fabric.
