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 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.
