Adjusting Width


To produce a zig-zag stitch, turn the stitch-

width dial to any setting between 1 and 5. The
higher the number, the wider the stitch.


Generally, zig-zag stitching at open stitch

lengths requires the same needle-thread ten­

sion as straight stitching. Flexi-Stitch patterns,

however, may require more needle-thread
tension than Fashion Stitch patterns. Make a
test sample with the fabric and thread you

plan to use so that you can adjust the tension

to suit the stitch you have chosen. The stitches
should lie flat against the fabric without caus­

ing the fabric to pucker.

If the stitches are not flat and the fabric is
puckered, lower the needle-thread tension by

turning the tension dial to a lower number.

For tension adjustment of Fashion Stitch pat­

terns at satin-stitch length, turn to page 42.


For Fashion Stitch Patterns

Any stitch length setting from 6 to 20 will give
you an open zig-zag stitch of the pattern you

select. The lower the number, the more open,
or farther apart, your stitches will be. The
symbol on the dial above 20 designates the


stitch area and is used for adjusting satin

stitching (see page 42 for specific instruc­


For Flexi-Stitch Patterns

When you use a Flexi-Stitch pattern, set the
stitch length dial in the 6 to 8 area indicated
by the yellow band. The higher the number,
the shorter your stitches will be. Dial numbers

in this case do not represent length of stitches

per inch.

Stitching cannot be reversed when using a
Flexi-Stitch pattern.
