TENSION ADJUSTMENT FOR SATIN STITCHING
Satin stitching requires lighter ten
sion than straight stitching or open
designs. The wider the satin stitching
the lighter the tension required.
Wide satin stitching, Stitch Width
Selector at 4, requires least amount of
tension. For narrower satin stitching
slightly more tension should be used.
To determine correct tension set
ting, a test sample should be made on
self-fabric using Special Purpose Foot.
A properly balanced satin stitch should
lie fiat across the material.
Some soft fabrics may require addi
tion of a backing to insure good stitch
ing results. Crisp organdy and lawn
are suitable for this purpose.
