After the preparations are done, you can try embroidering. This section describes the steps for
embroidering and appliquéing.
Sewing attractive finishes
There are many factors that go into sewing beautiful embroidery. Using the appropriate stabilizer (page 153) and
hooping the fabric in the frame (page 154) are two important factors mentioned earlier. Another important point
is the appropriateness of the needle and thread being used. See the explanation of threads below. Included with
this machine are two bobbin cases. Follow the explanation below.
If you use threads other than those listed above, the embroidery may not sew out correctly.

• For details on how to remove the bobbin case, refer to "Cleaning the race" (page 184).
• For details on adjusting the alternate bobbin case, refer to "Adjusting the alternate bobbin case (with no color
on the screw)" (page 174).
Before embroidering, check that there is enough thread in the bobbin. If you continue sewing without
enough thread in the bobbin, the thread may tangle.
Do not leave objects in the range of motion of the embroidery frame. The frame may strike the object
and cause a poor finish to the embroidery pattern.
When embroidering on large garments (especially jackets or other heavy fabrics), do not let the fabric
hang over the table. Otherwise, the embroidery unit cannot move freely, and the pattern may not turn
out as planned.
Use embroidery thread, or country embroidery thread intended for use with
Other embroidery threads may not yield optimum results.
Use embroidery bobbin thread intended for use with this machine.
Standard bobbin case (green marking on the screw) is in the machine for
sewing and embroidery. The bobbin case originally installed in the machine
has a green screw.
Alternate bobbin case (no color on the screw) is set with tighter tension for
embroidery with different weights of bobbin threads and a variety of
embroidery techniques. This bobbin case is identified with a dark colored
mark on the inside of the bobbin cavity. The screw on this case can be
adjusted if necessary.
