Presser Foot: Side Cutter*
(2) 5” x 4” pieces of wool type fabric
Cut a 1” x 1” notch in the fabric.
The cutter’s blades “cut” before the needle stitches. Be sure to position
fabric under the needle before beginning to sew.
Place the fabric OVER the first metal platform and UNDER the second
metal platform. If the cutter is not cutting it is usually due to the fabric
not being placed OVER the first platform.
Turn the hand-wheel to ensure the the needle does not hit the stitch
finger. The stitch width may need to be adjusted.
*Depending on model, the Side Cutter might be optional. Check the instruction manual.
