• Stitch length should depend on the type of fabric being used.

Short stitch length for flat or woven fabrics and longer for dense
fabrics and knits.

• Mending a tear - guide the tear along the center of the pressure

foot so that stitches catch evenly on both sides. A reinforcing

fabric (interfacing) may be used underneath if desired.

• Use the same technique to make a butted seam for interfacing

such as in the inside of a collar.

• Three step zigzag for overcasting provides a smoother edge than

the regular zigzag. Length-1 Width 1-1/2.

• Understitching facings with the three step zigzag provides less bulk

and facings lie flat on the inside of garments.

• Patches are applied more permenantly with the three step zigzag.

Make patches round where possible or overlap corner stitching to
reinforce corners.
