Satin Stitching

This is useful for decoration such as tapering,

manual designed embroidery, monogramming,
and applique. (Fig.68)

The satin stitch, which is really just a very
close zigzag stitch, is obtained by setting the
stitch length as near to “0” as possible
without stopping the feeding action. The
setting will vary for different fabrics. It may
be desirable to loosen the upper tension

slightly to cause the threads to lock under­
neath, in order to make the top surface look

especially smooth. For lightweight fabrics,
place paper underneath the fabric while
sewing for best results.


Tapering is done by gradually increasing and
decreasing the stitch width while sewing.
(Fig.69) By this method, tapered monograms

and other interesting designs can be created.

(Fig.70) For tapered monogram run the

machine fast while sliding the width dial lever

slowly from narrow to wide and from wide
to narrow.

First, learn this stroke by letting the fabric

guide straight and trying different needle
positions. Then, learn to pivot the fabric as
you are tapering by holding the fabric at one

point. Various strokes can be combined to

form letters and designs. Variegated thread
can give attractive results.

Different designs can be made by sliding the
stitch width lever control (disengaging both
stops) between 0 and 5. By running the
machine at a constant speed and sliding the

lever in a definite rhythm, various designs
can be created. (Fig.71)
