Satin Stitching

Satin Stitching is a series of closely spaced
zig-zag stitches that form a smooth satin-like
surface. It is useful for both utility and decora­
tive work. Always make a test sample first so

that you can adjust the stitch length and
thread tension properly.

Soft fabrics may require a backing to ensure
firm satin stitching. Crisp organdy and lawn
are suitable for this purpose.

Adjusting Stitch Length

1. Turn selector dial to 1 and runthe machine.

2. While running machine, gradually turn dial

toward 0 until stitches are closely spaced
and form a smooth satin stitch.

When a smooth satin stitch has been obtained,
you may run the machine at any desired speed.

Adjusting Thread Tension

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 stitching
appears to be too tight or the fabric is puckering,
lower the thread tension by turning the dial to a
lower number.
