When inserting the Needle into the Needle
Clamp, push it up as far as it will go and
tighten the Needle Clamp Screw firmly.
4
4 Flat Side of the Needle
To check needle straightness, place the flat
side of the needle onto something flat (a
needle plate, glass etc.) The gap between
the needle and the flat surface should be
consistent.
Never use a blunt needle.
18
Selecting a needle
For general sewing, use needle size 11 or 14. A fine thread and needle should be used for sewing
lightweight fabrics, so the fabric will not be marred. Heavy fabrics require a needle large enough to pierce
the fabric without fraying the needle thread.
In the needle case you will find one size 14, three blue tipped needles and one twin needle. Use a blue
tipped needle to eliminate skipped stitches when sewing knits and synthetic fabrics.
There are also specialty needles available from your sewing machine dealer. A denim needle with a sharp
tip is used to effectively pierce dense fabrics such as denim and canvas. For topstitching, a special
topstitching needle with a larger eye accommodates heavier weight thread. Leather needles punch small
holes in leather and suede allowing the thread to follow through the hole.
Check your needles frequently for rough or blunt tips. Snags and runs in knits, fine silks and silk-like fabrics
are permanent and are often caused by damaged needles.
Always purchase a good quality thread. It should be strong, smooth and consistent in thickness.

Raising the Presser Foot
The Presser Foot Lifter raises and lowers the
Presser Foot.
You can raise the Presser Foot higher than
the normal up position exerting more pressure when lifting the Presser Foot Lifter. This
allows for easy removal of the Presser Foot
and helps you to place thick fabrics under it.

The Knee Lifter is extremely helpful when
making patchworks, quilting etc, since it
allows you to handle the fabric while your
knee controls the presser foot.
Attaching the Knee Lifter
Match the Ribs on the Knee Lifter with the
Notches in the Knee Lifter Socket and insert
the Knee Lifter.

Stabilizer
To obtain the best quality embroidery, it is important to use stabilizers.
Types of stabilizer
Tear-away stabilizer is made from a fiber that will tear easily. Use tear-away stabilizers for stable
woven fabrics. After stitching, tear away the stabilizer so that the small portion left in the back of the
stitching will not affect the wear.
Iron-on stabilizer is an adhesive type stabilizer for knits and all kinds of unstable fabrics. Fuse it to
the wrong side of the fabrics with an iron.
Cut-away stabilizer is a non-woven fabric that does not tear. Cut the excess portion after stitching.
Use cut-away stabilizers for knits and all kinds of unstable fabrics.
Water soluble stabilizer will dissolve in water. Use this stabilizer for cutwork or lace embroidery, and
also for the right side of looped fabrics such as towel to avoid loops coming through the embroidery.
Sticky stabilizer is a sticky paper used for securing a small fabric or work that cannot be secured in
the hoop. It is also used for velvet and other napped fabric that would be permanently marked by the
hoop.
Usage:
• The stabilizer should be attached to the wrong side of fabric.
• More than one layer may be required.
• Felt or stable fabrics do not need to be stabilized and you may embroider directly on it.
• For firm fabrics, you may place a thin paper under the fabric.
• The non-adhesive type should be used when embroidering fabric, which cannot be ironed or
for sections, which are difficult to iron.
• Cut the stabilizer larger than the embroidery hoop and set it on the hoop so that the entire
piece is fastened with the hoop to prevent looseness of the fabric.
Adhesive (Iron-on) stabilizer
Place the Wrong Side of Fabric and the glossy side
of the Stabilizer together. Fold up a Corner of the
Stabilizer and fuse it with an iron.
1 Wrong Side of Fabric
2 Stabilizer
3 Corner of the Stabilizer
2
1
3
NOTES:
• Fold up a corner of the stabilizer, to make it
easier to peel off the excess stabilizer after
stitching.
• Ironing temperatures vary depending on kind of
adhesive type stabilizer.
Needles
Use size 11 Blue Tipped Needles for fine fabrics.
For medium to heavy weight fabrics, use size 14
needles.
