25 Pull down the needle threader lever as much as possible, and then turn the lever toward the back of the machine (away from you). Make sure that the hook passes through the eye of the needle and grabs the thread. 6 Raise the needle threader lever and pull out about 5 cm ( inch) of thread through the needle toward the back of the sewing machine. 5 Hook Thread Hold the thread in front of the needle to make sure that the hook grabs it. While lightly holding the thread, turn the needle threader lever toward the front of the machine (toward you). The hook will pull the thread through the needle. The needle threader can only be used with home sewing machine needles size 75/-00/6. Check the table on page 6 for the appropriate needle and thread combinations. If you are using transparent nylon mono-filament thread, you can only use needles in the range of 90/-00/6. You can not use the needle threader if you are using decorative threads or special needles, such as the twin needle and wing needle. When using these needles or threads you will need to thread the needle by hand. Make sure the main power switch is off when threading.
26 KNOWING YOUR SEWING MACHINE Drawing up the Lower Thread While lightly holding the end of the upper thread, slowly turn the handwheel toward you (counterclockwise) by hand to lower and then raise the needle. Quick-set Bobbin Threading This is only available on certain models. You can begin sewing immediately without drawing up the bobbin thread. When sewing gathers or darts, you can draw up the lower thread by hand so that some thread will be left over. Before you draw up the lower thread, put the bobbin back in. Pass the thread along the slit in the direction of the arrow, and leave it there without cutting it. Pull on the upper thread to draw up the lower thread. The bobbin cover should still be removed. Draw up the lower thread as described in the previous steps to. Replace the bobbin cover. Sewing with a Twin Needle Pull out about 0 cm ( inch) of both threads and put them toward the back of the machine under the presser foot. Upper thread Lower thread We have designed your machine so you can sew with this needle and two top threads. You can use the same color or two different colors of thread for making decorative stitches. Use only twin needles that have been made for this machine (part code: X575-0). Other needles could break and damage the machine. When using the twin needle, make sure the stitch width is not set above since this may cause the needle to hit the needle plate and break. Make sure that the needle does not strike the presser foot. Do not sew with bent needles. The needle could break and injure you. When using the twin needle, make sure you use the zigzag presser foot only.
27 Attaching the Twin Needle Attach the twin needle in the same way as a single needle (see page 8). The flat side of the needle should face toward the back and the rounded side should face toward you. Attaching the Extra Spool Pin Put the extra spool pin in the hole on the top of the machine. Put the second spool of thread onto the extra spool pin. Thread Tension The tension of the thread will affect the quality of your stitches. You may need to adjust it when you change fabric or thread. Memo We recommend that you do a test sample on scrap of a fabric before you start to sew. Correct Tension Correct tension is important as too much or too little tension will weaken your seams or cause puckers on your fabric. Twin Needle Threading You should thread each needle separately. Thread the left needle. Follow the same instructions for threading a single needle (see page ). Thread the right needle. Thread the right needle in the same way that you threaded the left needle using the thread from the spool on the extra spool pin, but do not pass the thread through the guide above the needle before you pass it through the eye of the right needle. Surface of fabric Back of fabric Upper thread Lower thread 5 Loops appear on surface of fabric 6 Loops appear on back of fabric Upper Tension is too Tight Loops will appear on the surface of the fabric. 5 Left needle thread passes through the needle bar thread guide Right needle thread passes in front of the needle bar thread guide Needle bar thread guide Note Models Equipped with a Needle Threader You can not use the needle threader to thread the twin needle. Instead, thread the twin needle by hand, from front to back. Using the needle threader may damage the machine. 5 Solution Reduce the tension by turning the upper tension control dial to a lower number. Upper Tension is too Loose Loops appear on the back of the fabric. 6 Solution Increase the tension by turning the upper tension control dial to a higher number. 5 5

You can also use the same thread for the bobbin thread and upper threading. Make sure you follow the needle, thread, and fabric combinations listed in the table. Using the wrong combination, such as heavyweight fabric like denim with a small needle (65/9-75/), may bend or break the needle. The wrong combination may also cause the seam to be uneven, the fabric to pucker, or the machine to skip stitches. 6
29 STRAIGHT AND ZIGZAG STITCHING Please Read Before Sewing To avoid being injured, watch the needle carefully while you are using the machine. Keep your hands away from moving parts. Do not stretch or pull the fabric during sewing, otherwise the needle may be damaged and you may be injured. Do not use bent or broken needles, otherwise you may be injured. Take care that the needle does not hit basting pins or other objects during sewing. The needle may break and you may be injured. Always use the correct presser foot. If you use the wrong presser foot, the needle may hit the presser foot and bend or break and you may be injured. When you turn the handwheel by hand, always turn it toward you (counterclockwise). Turning it the other way may cause the thread to tangle and damage the needle or fabric, and you may be injured. Straight ing *Turn the stitch width dial to adjust the needle position.

34 BUILT-IN STITCHES You can use these stitches to join together seams and finish them in one operation. The Overlock es are also useful for sewing stretch materials while the Arrowhead is ideal for sewing the edge of a blanket. Set the pattern selection dial to an overedge stitch. Put the fabric under the presser foot so that the seamline (or arrowhead point) is approximately mm (/8 inch) to the left of the center of the presser foot. This stitch works best with a seam allowance of approximately 5 mm (/6 inch) as this allows the right (zigzag) side of the stitch to overlock the cut edge of the fabric.

36 SEWING BUTTONHOLES AND BUTTONS SEWING BUTTONHOLES AND BUTTONS Making a Buttonhole Pattern Length Width Foot Making a Buttonhole Step Sewn section Pattern Step (Front bar tack) a F-.5 (/6-/6) (/8 /6) Buttonhole Foot Memo We recommend that you practice making a buttonhole on a scrap piece of fabric before you try it on an actual garment. When making buttonholes on soft fabrics, place a stabilizer material on the underside of the fabric. Using tailor s chalk, mark the position and length of the buttonhole on the fabric. Attach the buttonhole foot and push the frame back until it stops with the plastic insert at the front of the frame. If the presser foot is not installed with the correct orientation, the needle may strike the presser foot, which may bend or break the needle and cause injury. (See page 9 for the correct presser foot orientation.) You need to sew the front bar tack first. Line the bar tack mark under the center of the presser foot and match it up to the two lines on the presser foot.. Set the pattern selection dial to a.. Lower the presser foot and sew 5 to 6 stitches.. Stop the machine when the needle is at the left side of the stitches and then raise the needle from the material. Step b (Left side). Turn the pattern selection dial to b.. Sew the length of the tailor s chalk line.. Stop the machine when the needle is at the left side of the stitch and then raise the needle. Step c (Back bar tack). Turn the pattern selection dial to c (same position as in step ).. Sew 5 to 6 stitches.. Stop the machine when the needle is at the right side of the stitch and then raise the needle from the material. Step (Right side). Set the pattern selection dial to d.. Sew the right side until the needle reaches the stitches sewn in step. Securing the ing and Cutting the Buttonhole To secure the stitching, turn the material 90 degrees counterclockwise and sew straight stitches to the end of the front bar tack of the buttonhole. d Remove the material from the machine. We recommend that you put pins across both ends of the buttonhole to prevent the stitches from being cut. Front of chalk mark Red lines
37 Cut an opening in the middle of the buttonhole with the seam ripper tool. Be careful not to cut through any stitches. When using the seam ripper to open the buttonhole, do not put your hand or finger in the path of the ripper. The seam ripper may slip and you may be injured. After obtaining a satisfactory feed on the right side, stitch the buttonhole and observe the feeding. If the left side is too coarse or fine compared with the right side, adjust the buttonhole fineadjustment screw as described below. If the left side is too coarse, turn the buttonhole fine-adjustment screw with a large screwdriver in the direction. If the left side is too fine, turn the buttonhole fine-adjustment screw with a large screwdriver in the + direction. This adjustment ensures both sides of the buttonhole are the same. Adjusting Buttonholes If the stitching on the two sides of the buttonhole is not the same, you can make the following adjustments. Set the stitch length dial between "F" and.5 and sew the buttonhole on a scrap piece of fabric to observe how the material is fed. If the right side of the buttonhole is too coarse or fine, adjust the feeding of the material with the stitch length dial. length dial Buttonhole fine-adjustment screw Left side Buttonhole appearance Right side Shorter Longer 5

39 5 USING ATTACHMENTS AND APPLICATIONS Zipper Insertion Name Straight Pattern Length - (/6-/8) Width.5 (center) (/) Foot Zipper Foot Sew from the bottom of the zipper toward the top on both sides. The needle should be positioned on the zipper side of the foot for best results. You can use the zipper foot to sew different types of zippers, and can easily position it to the right or left side of the needle. When sewing the right side of the zipper, attach the shank to the left pin of the zipper foot. When sewing the left side of the zipper, attach the shank to the right pin of the zipper foot. Zipper foot Right pin for sewing the left side of the zipper Left pin for sewing the right side of the zipper Set the pattern selection dial to the Straight. Set the stitch length between (/6 inch) and (/8 inch). Set the stitch width at.5 (/ inch). Lower the presser foot lever and fix either the left or right pin of the zipper foot onto the shank. Fold the edge of the material cm (/ inch) and place the zipper under the folded section. Lower the needle into the notch located either on the left or right side of the zipper foot. 5 To sew the opposite side of the zipper, first turn the machine off and raise the presser foot lever. Release the zipper foot by pressing the button located at the back of the foot, then fit the foot on the other side of the zipper. Continue sewing using the pin on that side of the zipper foot. Make sure the needle does not hit the zipper during sewing. If the needle hits the zipper, the needle may break and you may be injured. 5 Turn the handwheel by hand to make sure the needle does not hit the zipper foot before you start sewing. Choosing a different stitch will cause the needle to hit the presser foot and break, and you may be injured. 7
