Place the edge of the material underneath

the opening of the sewing foot and guide

raw edge along the center slot of the foot

allowing stitch to form half on and half
off the fabric.

The multiple stitch zigzag is a wiser

choice on Model 426 for most fabrics.
See page 30.


The narrow zigzag can be used in seams
of firm knits for added strength. After

sewing, open seam and press flat. Tiny
zigzag stitches can hardly be seen and the
seam will give when stretched.

Place the button so its left hole comes

directly under the needle of its left zigzag
swing then gently lower the button foot.
Take a stitch into the hole.

Raise the needle from the left hole, and

move zigzag width control to the right
until the needle comes down exactly over

the right hole in the button.

Note: Be sure the needle clears the holes

of the button by moving the wheel by
hand before running the machine fast.

Usually 6 to 8 stitches are adequate for

securing a button in place. Stop with the
needle in the left hole. To lock the
threads, set the stitch width at 0, and
take a few stitches in the left hand hole.
