Sewing a Seam

on desired setting. Raise presser foot. Pull thread

back under presser foot leaving at least 10cm
(4 inches) of thread.

2. Position needle approximately 1.3cm (1/2 inch) from

fabric edge. Then lower presser foot and backstitch
almost to the edge of the fabric for reinforcement

formation on reverse stitching refer to page 28.
Stitch forward to end of seam and stop machine

stitching as this may deflect the needle causing it

to break.
