Guiding and supporting 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 as you sew. Do not pull


For elasticized fabric, stretch lace,

and knits with an unusual amount of
elasticity, apply firm tension in front
and back of the presser foot to

stretch the seam as the stitches are

being placed.

Sewing in reverse

For strengthening the end of a seam,

push in the reverse button and back­
stitch 3-4 stitches. Raise needle and
presser footand remove fabric by draw­
ing It to the back and left. Cut thread on

thread cutter on presser bar.
