Fabric handling, when sewing tubular and

hard to reach garment areas, is simplified and

made easier when you use the free-arm
sewing capability of your sewing machine.


• Free-arm sewing takes the difficulty out of

topstitching, sleeves, finishing waistbands

and trouser legs rotate smoothly under the

needle, around the arm, allowing you to
place your stitching accurately.


• Sewing buttons on a cuff or neckband is

easy with free-arm sewing. The sewing
arm allows room for cuffs to slip onto

without being stretched out of shape, and
you can also see and handle the stitching
area more easily.

Bar tacks

• Bar tacks reinforce areas of strain and can

be applied to ready-made garments, as
well as to those sewn at home. Use the
free-arm surface to avoid fabric bulk

around the needle when you apply bar
tacks to pockets, pleats and waistlines.
