Darning and Mending. In order to move the fabric freely in

any direction for darning, and mending, release the pressure cap

B completely by pressing down on the snap lock, (A, Fig. 20).

Turn the knob to "DN" position, which drops the feed well

below the needle plate. To return feed to normal, return knob

to "HI".


Have take-up lever at highest point before starting to sew.

Do not try to help the feeding by pulling the material as this may



deflect the needle and cause it to break.

NEVER run machine without material under the presser foot.

Place material and threads in position under the presser foot and lower the presser foot.

Turn the hand wheel toward you until the needle is at its highest point. You are now

ready to begin sewing. By having the needle at its highest point, it is not necessary to touch

the hand wheel to start the machine. You merely press the control. The speed of the machine

is regulated by increasing or decreasing the amount of pressure exerted on the control.


Be sure to stop the machine when the thread take-up lever and needle bar are at the

highest position. Now raise the presser foot and draw the fabric back and to the left,
