Variety of overcasting stitches

U11 Multiple zigzag stitch: Zigzag foot A
This stitch is used to finish a raw edge of synthetics and
other stretch fabrics that tend to pucker.
Sew along the fabric edge leaving an adequate seam
allowance. After sewing, trim off the seam allowance
closer to the stitches.
U12 Overcasting stitch: Overedge foot M
This stitch can be used to simultaneously seam and
overcast edges of fabrics.
Use this stitch when you do not need to open seams flat.
Place the fabric edge next to the guide of the foot and
sew. The stitch width cannot be adjusted.
U13 Knit stitch: Overedge foot M
This stitch is recommended for sewing such fabrics
as synthetic knits and stretch velour as it provides the
greatest amount of elasticity and strength.
Place the fabric edge next to the guide of the foot and
sew.
For better results, use the zigzag foot A and sew leaving
an adequate seam allowance.
After sewing, trim the seam allowance close to the
stitches.
U14 Overlock stitch: Overedge foot M
This stitch finishes the edges of fabric in a way similar to
a commercial overlocking machine for a professional look.
Place the fabric edge next to the guide of the foot and
sew.
The stitch width cannot be adjusted.
