4. Adjusting Stitch Length
Any stitch length setting from 1 to 4 mm
will give you an open zig-zag stitch.
The higher the number^ the more open, of
farther apart your stitches will be.
The area between 0 and 1 on the dial is used
for the adjustment of closely spaced plain
satin-like surface. (Refer to page
information on satin stitching.)
5. Needle-Thread Tension
The needle-thread tension dial regulates the
amount of tension on the needle thread and
lets you select just the right setting for your
fabric and thread. The numbers on the dial
eliminate guess-work in duplicating settings.
Zig-zag stitching requires less tension than
straight stitching. Notice the stitching on
your test sample. The stitches should lie fiat
against the fabric with-out causing the fabric
to pucker, if the stitches are not fiat and the
fabric is puckering, lower the tension by
turning the dial to a lower number.
