Guiding and Supporting Fabric
Most fabrics of stretch or knit construction need only
to be guided in front of the presser foot when you use
one of the stretch stitches. Some fabrics—nylon tricot
and eiasticized fabrics, for example—do require sup
port while being stitched.
1. For nylon tricot and similar synthetic knits, apply
gentle tension by holding the seam in front and back
of the presser foot as you sew.
2. For eiasticized fabric, stretch lace, and knits with an
unusual amount of elasticity, apply firm tension in
front and back of the presser foot to stretch the
seam as the stitches are being placed.
Do not pull the fabric while you are stitching as
this may deflect the needle, causing it to break.
