Pin Placement When
Seam <5uide Is Used
Pin basting is a time saver and can be used in
place of hand basting when you are straight
stitching seams in easy4o-handie fabric.
Use fine pins and place them so that:
• They are at right angles to the presser foot
and just nip into the fabric at the stitching
♦ They do not extend under both sides of the
presser foot. Never place pins on the under
side of the fabric in contact with the feed.
Most fabric can be placed under the presser
foot by raising the presser-foot lifter to its
normal up position. When placing bulky fab
rics, such as coating, knit or terry cloth, or
multiple fabric layers, you will find it conven
ient to raise the presser-foot lifter to the high-
rise position. Hold lifter in position (since it
does not lock) while placing fabric under the
presser foot. Make sure the lifter is all the way
down before starting to sew.
