• Sewing buttons on a cuff or neckband is easy with
free-arm sewing. The sewing arm allows room for
cuffs to slip on without being stretched out of shape,
and you can also see and handle the stitching area
See Step-by-Step instructions on page 54.
• Bar tacks reinforce areas of strain and can be applied
to ready-made garments, as well as to those sewn at
home. Use the free-arm surface to avoid fabric bulk
around the needle when you apply bar tacks to
pockets,pleats and waistlines.
