Guiding Fabric

Most fabrics need only to be guided in front

of the presser foot. Some fabrics, however,
require support while being stitched.,

^ For tricot and other similar synthetic knits,

apply gentle tension by holding fabric tight in

front and back of presser foot during sewing. DO

NOT pull fabric or needle may break!

For elasticized fabric, stretch lace, and knits

with an unusual amount of elasticity, hold as
with tricot but apply firm tension in front and

back of presser foot to stretch the seam as the

stitches are being sewn.


Pin basting and hand basting are easy ways to

make temporary seams before machine sewing.


To pin baste, insert pins at stitching line.

NEVER place pins on the underside of fabric in
contact with the feed. DO NOT sew over pins;
remove them immediately before stitching.
