TO START SEWING
Important hints:
1. Raise the take-up lever to its highest position before starting and after stopping
sewing.
2. Hold both threads about 10 cms to the rear of the machine for the first two or three
stitches.
3. Sufficient fabric should be placed under needle before lowering the presser foot.
4. Depress foot/speed control and start to sew.
5. Test the machine stitches on a scrap of fabric you plan to use, adjusting the machine
for the length of the stitch and tension suitable to your fabric.
6. Separate the machine from the power system if you leave it unsupervised.
Attention:
1. When turning the balance wheel manually, always turn it toward you.
2. Guide the cloth gently with your hand.
3. To prevent breaking needles, always raise the needle out of the fabric when you stop
sewing.
HOW TO FINISH STITCHES
1. Sew to the edge of seam.
2. Push the reverse button and sew in
reverse for about 3-4 cms.
3. Raise needle to its highest position.
4. Lift the presser foot and pull the fabric
out of the back of the machine.
Thread cutter
5. Cut threads as shown on the thread
cutter
21
STRAIGHT STITCH
1. This type of stitching is used most frequently.
2. The zigzag presser foot can be used for both straight and zigzag sewing.
3. To sewing thinner cloth may use smaller stitch length.
ZIGZAG SEWING
Pattern selector position
Satin stitching can be used for sewing
initials, patterns, appliqué, etc.
The zigzag stitch is a universal stitch. The
satin stitch pattern has short tense stitches
which can be used for sewing.
AUTOMATIC EMBROIDERY
These stitches have a wide range of
decorative and utility applications and are
particularly suitable for woven fabrics.
The Scallop stitch (L) is ideal for edging
collars, cuffs, tablecloths, serviettes etc. For
all the stitches, the stitch length can be
reduced to achieve a close “satin stitch” if
required.
With satin stitch a paper backing, will
improve the result.
22
OVERCASTING
Use these stitches for oversewing rough
edges.
BINDING
To sew fabrics edge select the
multi-zigzag stitch.
FREIHANDSTICKEN
(Use Darning plate see page 18)
Remove the presser foot and attach
the darning plate.
Lower feed dog and move the hooped
fabric slowly in the desired direction
until the fabric has been embroidered.
23
BUTTON SEWING
Utilize the button presser foot. (Optional)
Match
(Use Darning plate see page 18)
1. Place the darning plate properly.
2. Place button presser foot in position and attach it firmly.
3. Place the button between presser foot and fabric and lower the presser foot.
4. Manually turn hand wheel towards you, ensuring that the needle enters into both holes
of button without obstruction. (Increase or decrease width setting).
5. Sew about 7 stitches.
6. Pull both threads to the underside and tie them together.
BLIND STICH
2. Finish the seam as shown
1. Fold fabric as shown.
24
Adjust the width to obtain the correct
seam.
Wrong: Needle is not piercing edge to
fold at all.
(A)
Needle pierces the edge of fold too
much.
(B)
Correct seam.
25
HEMMING (Optional)
3 mm
1. Raise the foot and the needle to its
highest position. Replace the foot with
the picot foot.
2. Fold over the fabric edge by about 3 mm
and place it under the foot. Secure the
folded edge with a few stitches. Slide
the hem of your project into the picot
foot by pulling the threads.
1 mm
20 mm
3. Lower the foot and sew the hem.
4. While sewing fold the fabric to the left a
little and guide it into the hemmer foot.
5. Make sure that the fabric does not move
under the right half of the foot. The
fabric must be fed into the scroll of the
hemmer sufficiently so that the project
edge runs freely through the groove
under the foot.
Only suitable materials can be used and
some practice may be necessary to
achieve the best results.
QUILTER (Optional)
1. Slide the arm through the hole on top
of the presser foot holder.
2. Move the quilter to the required stitch
distance.
3. Sew one line to test the machine
stitches, then adjust the quilter
position you wish to use.

ZIPPER SEWING
Utilize the zipper foot.
Select straight stitch.
1. Zipper foot is designed to sew close to a raised edge,
thus preventing sewing on zipper.
2. Place zipper foot in position and attach firmly.
3. Fold the fabric about 2 cm and place the fabric
under foot.
1. To sew the left side of the zipper, set the zipper on
the right side of the needle.
