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 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.
