Fabric handling, when sewing tubular and hard to reach garment areas, is simplified

and made easier when you use the free-arm sewing capability of your sewing



• Free-arm sewing takes the difficulty

out of topstitching, sleeves, finishing
waistbands and pant legs rotate

smoothly under the needle, around

the arm, allowing you to place your

stitching accurately.


• Sewing buttons on a cuff or neck­

band is easy with free-arm sewing.
The sewing arm allows room for

cuffs to slip onto without being
stretched out of shape, and you can

also see and handle the stitching
area more easily.

Bar tacks

• 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,

plackets and waistlines.
