Satin stitching, Accessory and selector settings – SINGER 8234 User Manual
Attention! The text in this document has been recognized automatically. To view the original document, you can use the "Original mode".
When you wish to produce a satin stitch make
a test sample first so you can adjust stitch
length and thread tension properly. Soft fabric
may require a backing to ensure a firm stitch.
Crisp organdy, lawn or a fusible interfacing are
suitable for this purpose.

ADJUSTING NEEDLE THREAD
Satin stitching requires less tension than
straight stitching or open zig-zag stitching.
Furthermore, the wider the stitch, the lighter the
tension on the thread must be. Notice the
stitching on your sample. If the fabric is
puckered (illustration A), lower the needle
thread tension by turning the tension dial to a
lower number. A correct satin stitching is
shown in illustration B.
