TURNING A CORNER
The longest stitch. No. 6 on the stitch
regulator, adjusted by stitch regulating
lever, is found satisfactory for basting.
These basting stitches can be easily removed
by clipping every sixth stitch and with
drawing the long, continuous thread.
Machine basting is firmer, more even and
much quicker than hand basting.
Pivot on eye of needle. Stop machine
when needle is in this position. Raise
presser foot, turn work as desired, lower the
presser foot and resume sewing.
SEWING BIAS SEAMS
Use a shorter stitch when sewing bias or
curved seams to increase the elasticity of
the seam and to prevent seam failure under
strain. No change in tensions is required.
