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.
■ If thick seams are being sewn and the fabric does
not feed at the beginning of stitching
The fabric may not feed when thick seams are
being sewn and the presser foot is not level, as
shown below. In this case, use the presser foot
locking pin (black button on the left side of zigzag
foot "J") so that the presser foot remains level
while sewing, allowing the fabric to be fed
smoothly.

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