Stitch overview
The settings shown in this table are our recommendations based on normal conditions. The correct tension is set
automatically by the use of the Auto Tension Dial (ATD). It may be necessary to adjust the thread tension according to
the stitch, type of fabric and thread you are using. For best results make tension adjustments in small steps of no greater
than half a number at a time. Always test sew on a sample of your fabric before sewing on your garnment.
Different stitches are obtained by combining the ATD with different needle positions, threading methods, and the use
of the 2-thread converter.
