SETTING UP YOUR MACHINE
Be sure to wipe off any surplus oil from needle plate
area before using your machine the first time.
POWER LINE CORD/FOOT CONTROL
Make sure that the sewing machine is turned off (the
power switch is set to”O”), and then connect the plug
of the power line cord into the cord socket (1) and
your wall outlet (2) as illustrated.
Connect the foot control plug (3) into the machine
socket.
NOTE:
When foot control is
disconnected, the machine will
not operate.
Always disconnect the machine
from power supply by removing
the plug from the wall-outlet.
POWER/LIGHT SWITCH
Your machine will not operate until the power/light
switch is turned on. The same switch controls both
the power and the light.
When servicing the machine, or changing needles, etc., machine must be disconnected from the power supply.
The Foot that comes on your Sewing
machine is called the General purpose
foot(J) and will be used for the majority of
your sewing.
The Satin Foot(Z) is another very useful
foot and should be used for most
decorative sewing.

SPOOL PINS
HORIZONTAL SPOOL PIN for normal thread
spool
Place thread spool on the pin and secure with a spool cap to
ensure smooth flow of thread. If the thread spool has a
thread retaining slit, it should be placed to the right.
VERTICAL SPOOL PIN for large thread Spool
Attach the spool pin. Place a spool of thread on the spool
pin.
PRESSER FOOT LIFTER
There are three positions for your presser foot.
1. Lower the presser foot to sew
2. Raise the lifter to the middle position to insert or remove
fabric.
3. Lift it to its highest position to change the presser foot or
to remove thick fabric.
FEED DOG CONTROL
The feed dogs control the movement of the fabric that is
being sewn. They should be raised for all general sewing
purposes and lowered for darning, freehand embroidery
and monogramming so that you, not the feed dogs, are
guiding the fabric.

CONVERTING TO FREE-ARM SEWING
Your machine can be used either as a flat- bed or as a
free-arm model.
With the extension table in position, it provides a large
working surface as a standard flat-bed model.
To remove the extension table, hold it firmly with both
hands and pull it off to the left as shown. To replace, slide
the extension table back into place until it clicks.
With the extension table removed the machine converts into a slim free-arm model for sewing children’s clothes, cuffs,
trouser legs, and other awkward places.
WINDING THE BOBBIN
1. Place a spool of thread on the spool pin, and secure it
with the spool pin cap. Pull the thread out from the spool
and place it through the thread guides as shown in the
illustration.
2. Put the end of the thread through the hole in the bobbin
as shown.
3. Push the bobbin winder shaft to the far left position, if it
is not already there. Place the bobbin onto the shaft with
the end of the thread coming from the top of the bobbin.
Push the bobbin winder shaft to the right until it clicks.
Hold onto the end of the thread.
4. Start the machine. The bobbin will automatically stop
turning when completely filled. Push the shaft to the left to remove the bobbin and then cut the thread.

THE BOBBIN THREAD
1. Raise the needle to its highest position by rotating the
hand wheel toward you.
2. Remove the bobbin cover plate by pushing the
release button to the right. The bobbin cover will pop up
sufficiently to allow you to remove the cover.
3.Insert the bobbin making sure the bobbin rotates
counter- clockwise when you pull the thread.
4. Pull thread through the slot (A) and then to the left.
5. With a finger held gently on top of the bobbin, pull the
thread until it stops in slot (B). Then pull about 6" (15
cm) of thread and lead it towards back of the machine
under the presser foot.
NOTE: This is also a very important step to
assure the bobbin thread does not slip out of
position.
6. Replace the bobbin cover plate onto the needle plate.
NOTE: This is a very important step as the
bobbin can become unthreaded and cause
sewing problems if it rotates clockwise.

EN
THREADING THE TOP THREAD
A. Raise the presser foot lifter. Always be sure to raise the
presser foot lifter before threading the top thread. (If the
presser foot lifter is not raised, correct thread tension cannot
be obtained.)
B. Turn the hand wheel toward you until the needle is in its
highest position and the thread take-up is visible.
C. Thread the machine with your left hand while firmly gripping
the thread with your right hand in the following order as
illustrated.
* Guide the thread through thread guide <1>.
* Pull the thread into the tension discs <2> (which are located
the machine).Then guide the thread to the bottom of the
groove.
* Do a U-turn around the inside of the tab (3).
* Pass the thread through the thread take-up (4) from right to
left.
* Pull the thread into the inside of the take-up lever until it
reaches the eye of the lever.
* Guide the thread into the thread guide (5).
* Pass the thread through the eye of the needle (6) from front
to back. (See following page for instructions on operation of
the Automatic Needle Threader.)
IMPORTANT:
To verify that the machine is threaded properly in the
tension discs, do this simple check:
1.) With the presser foot raised, pull the thread towards
the back of the machine. You should detect only a
slight resistance and little or no deflection of the needle.
2). Now lower the presser foot and again pull the thread
towards the the back of the machine. This time you
should detect a considerable amount of resistance and
much more deflection of the needle. If you do not detect
the resistance you have miss-threaded the machine and
need to re-thread it.

USING AUTOMATIC NEEDLE THREADER
Raise the needle to its highest position by rotating the hand wheel towards you.
1. Hook the thread to the thread guide as illustrated.
2. Pull down the lever while holding the end of the thread.
3. Rotate the lever to the rear of the machine.
4. Guide the thread into the hooked end and pull the theard upward.
5. Return the lever and the needle will be threaded automatically
6. Release the lever and pull the thread away from you.
NOTE: For smooth threading it is recommended you
select straight stitching when using the needle threader.

PICKING UP BOBBIN THREAD
1.Raise the presser foot lifter.
2.Holding the needle thread loosely with your left hand,
turn the hand wheel toward you with your right hand first
lowering the needle and continuing until the needle
comes to its highest position.
3.Lightly pull up the top thread, and pick up the bobbin
thread, which will appear through the needle plate slot.
4.Pull both, top and bobbin threads together toward the
back of the machine under the presser foot, leaving
about 6"(15 cm) clear.
NOTE: A quick way to pick up the bobbin thread is,
with straight stitch selected, touch and release the
reverse switch.
Your machine will perform one down-up cycle and
stop with the needle up. Always stopping with the
needle “fully up” is one of the features of your
computer sewing Machine.

NEEDLE, THREAD AND FABRIC CHART
Your fabric will determine the choice of a needle and thread. The following table is a practical guide to needle and thread
selection.
Always refer to it before a new sewing project. And be sure to use the same size and type of thread in the bobbin as in the
top thread supply.

1. Raise the needle bar to its highest position by turning the hand wheel
toward you.
2. Loosen the needle clamp screw by turning it toward you.
3. Remove the needle by pulling it downward.
4. Insert the new needle into the needle clamp with the flat side toward the
back.
5. Push the needle up as far as it can go.
6. Tighten the needle clamp screw with the screw driver.
NOTE: Tighten snugly, but do not over tighten.
Helpful Hint: Placing a scrap of fabric under the
presser foot and lowering the presser foot makes it
easier to cange the needle and will preclude
dropping the needle into the needle plate slot.
Always disconnect the machine from power
supply by removing the plug from the
wall-outlet.

ADJUSTING TOP THREAD TENSION
90% of your sewing will be done with the tension control set
at “4”.
STRAIGHT STITCHING
The good looking appearance of your stitching is largely
determined by the balanced tension of both top and bobbin
threads. The tension is well balanced when these two threads
‘lock’ in the middle of layers of the fabric you are sewing.
If, when you start to sew, you find that the stitching is irregular, you
will need to adjust the tension control.
Make any adjustments with presser foot ‘down’.
A balanced tension (identical stitches both top and bottom) is
usually only desireable for straight stitch sewing.
ZIG ZAG and DECORATIVE SEWING
For zigzag sewing and decorative stitch functions, thread tension
should be less than for straight stitch sewing.
You will always obtain a nicer stitch and less puckering when the
upper thread appears on the bottom side of your fabric.
BOBBIN TENSION
The bobbin tension has been correctly set at the factory, so
you do not need to adjust it.
CHANGING PRESSER FOOT
Be sure the needle is in the up position. Raise presser foot lifter.
1. Push presser foot release button to remove the foot.
2. Place the desired foot on the needle plate aligning the
presser foot pin with the foot holder.
3. Lower the presser foot lifter so that the foot holder snaps
on the foot.
Helpful Hint: A slight adjustment to a higher number or
a lower number may improve sewing appearance.

2. STARTING TO SEW
STRAIGHT STITCHING
Straight stitch is most frequently used for every aspect of
sewing. Lets learn how to sew following the steps below.
1. SETTINGS
Presser foot - General Purpose Foot
Thread tension control – 4
NOTE: Based upon the weight of the fabric, slight “fine
tuning” of the tension may be desired.
A. Thread tension control
B. Needle position button
C. Reverse stitch button
D. Presser foot lifter
2. Pull both threads under the presser foot toward the
back of the machine, leaving about 6"(15cm) clear.
3. Place the fabric under the presser foot and lower the
presser foot lifter.
4. Turn the hand wheel toward you until the needle enters
the fabric.
5. Start the machine. Guide the fabric gently with your
hands. When reaching the edge of the material, stop the
sewing machine
NOTE: The Needle Plate has both Metric and Inch
Markings as an aid for guiding your fabric when
sewing a seam
6. First turn the handwheel toward you until the needle is at
its highest position, then raise the presser foot, draw
materials to the rear and cut off excess thread with the
thread cutter located on the bottom of face cover as shown.
NOTE: To secure the stitching and avoid raveling,
press the reverse stitch switch and sew a few stitches at
the start and end of the seam.
KEEPING SEAMS STRAIGHT
To keep the seam straight, use one of the numbered
guide lines on the needle plate. The numbers indicate
distance from the needle at its center position.
The guide line on the bobbin cover plate is a 1/4"(6mm)
seam guide line which is used for piecing quilt blocks and
also for narrow seams.

INSERTING ZIPPERS AND PIPING
Use the zipper foot to sew to the right or left of the
zipper or close to the cord.
INSERTING ZIPPERS
To sew down the right side, attach the left side of the
zipper foot to the presser foot holder so that the
needle passes through the opening on the left
side of the foot.
To sew down the left side, attach the right side of the foot
to the footholder.
PIPING
To pipe soft furnishings, cover the cord with a bias
strip of fabric and pin or tack it to the main piece
of fabric.
Attach the right side of the zipper foot to the foot holder so
that the needle passes through the opening on the right
side of the foot.
Helpful Hint: Slight adjusting of the needle position to sew
closer to the piping may be accomplished with the Stitch
Width Control.
HAND-LOOK QUILT STITCH
This stitch is designed to look like hand sewing for
topstitching and quilting.
1. Thread the bobbin with desired top stitching color.
When
sewing, the machine will pull this thread to the top.
2. Thread the machine with an invisible or lightweight
thread, using
the color that matches your fabric. This thread
should not show.
3. Increase thread tension a little bit at a time until you
achieve
the desired appearance.
4. Start to sew
NOTE: For a dramatic appearance, experiment with
different tension and stitch length combinations.

ZIGZAG STITCHING
SETTINGS:Presser foot - General Purpose Foot
Thread tension control – 4
The top thread may appear on the bottom depending on the
thread, fabric, type of stitch and sewing speed, but the bobbin
thread must never appear on the top of the fabric.
If bobbin thread is pulling to the top or you are experiencing
Puckering, slightly reduce the tension with the Thread Tension
Control.
ADJUSTING STITCH WIDTH AND LENGTH
A dark grey box indicates the Auto/default value is set
automatically when the pattern is selected.
For the Zigzag Pattern the stitch length is 2 mm and the
stitch width is 5 mm.
The light grey boxes indicate all the possible personal
preference options available to set manually.
NOTE: The values shown in the chart are actual sewing
lengths and widths and do not correspond to the scale
and number markings on the sewing machine.
SATIN STITCH
This is a closely spaced attractive stitch for applique bar-
tacking, etc. Slightly loosen the top thread tension and manually
adjust the stitch length between 0.5 and 1.5 for satin stitching.
Use a backing of stabilizer or interfacing for sheer materials to
avoid puckering.
NOTE: When sewing a dense (closely spaced) Satin
Stitch, the Satin Stitch Foot MUST be used.

BLINDHEM STITCH
The blindhem stitch is primarily used for hemming curtains,
trousers, skirts, etc.
Settings : Presser foot - Blind stitch foot (H)
: Thread Tension Control: 4
--Regular blind stitch for normal firm fabrics
-- Elastic blind stitch for soft, stretchable fabrics
1. First finish the raw edge. Do this by turning it under on fine
fabrics or overcasting it on medium to heavyweight fabrics.
Then turn the hem up the required depth, press and pin in
place.
2. Now fold the fabric as illustrated with the wrong side up.
3. Place the fabric under the foot. Turn the handwheel towards
you by hand until the needle swings fully to the left. It should
just pierce the fold of the fabric. If it does not, adjust the guide
(B) on the Blindhem Foot (A) so that the needle just pierces
the fabric fold and the guide just rests against the fold.
NOTE: For a narrower or wider blindhem, first
manually adjust the length and width controls to your
desired length and width. Then adjust the guide on the
foot.
Sew slowly, guiding the fabric carefully along the edge
of the guide.
4. When completed, the stitching is almost invisible on the
right side of the fabric.
NOTE: It takes practice to sew blind hems. Always
make a sewing test first.

MULTI-STITCH ZIGZAG
SETTINGS :Presser foot - General Purpose Foot(J)
:Thread tension control – 4
This is a strong stitch, because as its name implies, it makes
three short stitches where the normal zig-zag makes only one.
For this reason it is highly recommended for overcasting all
types of fabrics.
It is also ideal for bartacks, mending tears, patching, sewing
towelling, patch-work and attaching flat elastic.
NOTE: Mending a tear or overedging as shown in the
illustration requires manual adjustment of the length
control
SHELL STITCH
SETTINGS :Presser foot - General Purpose Foot(J)
:Thread tension control – 4
Turn under the raw edge and press. Place the fabric right side
up so that the zigzag part of the stitch sews just over the folded
edge, pulling the fabric in to form a shell hem. Trim away excess
fabric close to the stitching line
Helpful Hint: For a pleasing appearance experiment
with different width, length and tension settings.
SEWING ON A BUTTON
SETTINGS :Presser foot - Button fitting foot (O)
:Feed dog control -
Push the lever in the direction of the arrow to drop the feed
dog and attach button fitting foot (O).
Position your fabric and button under the presser foot. Lower
presser foot. Turn the handwheel to make sure the needle clears
both the left and right openings of the button. Adjust width if required.
Sew 10 stitches across.
When attaching four-hole buttons, first sew the two holes
closest to you. Then, slide the button so that the needle goes
into the two holes toward the rear of the sewing machine, and
then sew them in the same way.
Helpful Hint: To secure the thread, pull both threads to
the backside of the fabric and tie them together.

DECORATIVE AND STRETCH STITCHES
SETTINGS :Presser foot - General Purpose Foot(J)
or Satin Stitch Foot (Z)
:Thread tension control – 4
Stretch stitches are mainly for use on knit, or
stretchable fabrics, but can also be used on woven
materials.
STRAIGHT STRETCH STITCH
Straight stretch stitch is far stronger than an ordinary
straight stitch, because it locks three times - forwards,
backwards and forwards.
It is particularly suitable for reinforcing the seams of
sportswear in stretch and non-stretch fabrics, and for
curved seams which take a lot of strain.
Use this stitch also to top-stitch labels, collars and cuffs to
give a professional finish to your garments.
HONEYCOMB STITCH
The Honeycomb stitch is ideal for smocking and useful for
overcasting and attaching elastic and stretch lace.
1. For smocking, first make several rows of gathers across
the fabric that you wish to smock.
2. Cut an underlay fabric (such as organdy) and place it
under the shirring.
3. Sew the honeycomb stitch over the gathered rows,
securing them in place.
OVEREDGE STITCH
This is the same type stitch used by the garment industry in
making sportswear - it forms and finishes the seam in one
operation.
It’s very effective for use in repairing raw or worn seams of
garments.
FEATHER STITCH
The pleasing appearance of this stitch enables it to be
used for decorative topstitching or for attaching laces and
trims.
It is also ideal for quilting applications and edge-joining.

EN
RIC-RAC STITCH
The Ric-rac stitch is primarily used for a decorative
topstitch. It is ideal for edging neck-bands, armholes,
sleeves and hems.
When manually adjusted to a very narrow width, it also can
be used for sewing high stress seams.
DOUBLE OVERLOCK STITCH
The Double overlock stitch has three main uses. It is
perfect for attaching flat elastic, for overcasting, and
for seaming and overcasting in one operation. It is
primarily used on slightly stretch fabrics and non-stretch
fabrics such as linen, tweed, and medium to heavy-weight
cotton.
CRISS-CROSS STITCH
Useful for decorative stitching on borders and for use
in heirloom sewing. The Entredeux stitch is most often
sewn with a wing needle to create holes in the stitch
pattern.
Helpful Hint: A slight + adjustment of the tension will
increase the size of the hole when using a wing
needle.
21
Page: 59
LADDER STITCH
The Ladder stitch is primarily used for drawn thread
hemstitching. It can also be used for sewing over thin tape
in a contrasting or same color. Place the stitch in the
center and a special effect will be obtained for decoration.
Another use for the ladder stitch is couching over narrow
ribbon, yarn or elastic.
For drawn thread work, choose a coarse linen type fabric
and after sewing draw the thread out within the ladder for
an open airy appearance.
PIN STITCH
The Pin stitch is a traditional stitch pattern used for
picot-like edges and for applique work.
BLANKET STITCH
The Blanket stitch is traditionally a hand sewn stitch
used to put bindings on blankets. This multi-purpose
stitch can also be used for couching, applique, drawn
thread hemstitching and creating fringe.
SLANT PIN STITCH
Excellent for hemstitching projects like table linens.
Picotlike stitch can also be made on sheer materials. Sew
along the raw edge of fabric and trim close to the
outside of the stitching.

SLANT OVEREDGE STITCH
Seams and overcasts in one operation to produce a
narrow, supple seam, particularly suited to swimwear,
sportswear, T-shirts, babywear in stretch nylon, jersey
and cotton jersey.
CROSSED STITCH
Use to sew and finish elastic fabrics or for decorative
work.
GREEK KEY STITCH
A traditional pattern suited for decorative borders and
edge finishings.
EDGE-JOINING STITCH
This is a popular decorative stitch. It can also be used for
joining two separate pieces of fabric, leaving a little
space in between. To attach two separate pieces of
fabric together, leave a little space in between. To
prepare the fabric:
Fold under the seam allowances on the cut edges, and
press.
Baste folded edges to tissue paper with about 1/8" (0.3
cm) space between. Stitch over the 1/8" (0.3 cm)
allowance, just catching the fabric fold on both sides with
the needle.
Remove bastings and paper; press.
WIZARD STITCH
Used mainly for decorative machine stitching.

MORE DECORATIVE STITCHES
SETTINGS :Presser foot - General Purpose Foot(J)
or Satin Stitch Foot (Z)
:Thread tension control - 4 or 3
Following are examples of how to use and sew these
stitches. You can use some other decorative stitches in
the same way.You should carry out a test sewing on an
extra piece of the fabric being sewn to check the
decorative pattern to be used. Before starting to sew,
check that there is enough thread wound onto the
bobbin to ensure that the thread will not run out during
sewing.
For best results, stabilize fabric with a tear-away or
washaway stabilizer underneath when stitching.
Helpful Hint: Bobbin thread should not appear on
the top side of the fabric, so it may be necessary to
slightly lower the tension setting.

BUTTONHOLE MAKING
AUTOMATIC BUTTONHOLE
USING BUTTONHOLE FOOT
Your machine offers you two different widths of bartack,
keyhole and round end buttonholes sewn by a system that
measures the size of the button and calculates the size of
buttonhole required. All of this is done in one easy step.
PROCEDURE
Use an interfacing in the area of the garment where
buttonholes are placed. Stabilizer or regular interfacing
can be used.
Make a practice buttonhole on a scrap of the fabric you
are using. Then try the buttonhole with the selected
button.
1. Select one of the buttonhole patterns.
2. Replace the presser foot with the buttonhole foot. (Refer to
“Changing presser foot” on page 11.)
3. Insert the button into the buttonhole foot. (Refer to “Using
buttonhole foot” above.)
4. Lower the buttonhole lever (C) so that it drops down
vertically between the stoppers (A) and (B).

5. Carefully mark the position of buttonhole on your
garment.
6. Place the fabric under the foot. Pull out the bobbin
thread underneath the fabric to a length of about 4
inches to the rear
.
7. Align the buttonhole mark on the fabric with the
mark on the buttonhole foot, and then lower the
buttonhole foot.
8. While holding the top thread, start the machine.
* Sewing will be completed automatically in the following order.
9. When sewing is finished, use a buttonhole
opener/seamripper to open up the fabric in the center
of the buttonhole. Be careful not to cut any of the
stitching.

CORDED BUTTONHOLES
Hook filler cord (such as crochet thread or buttonhole twist)
over the spur and pull both ends of the cord forward under
the foot and tie off the cord as shown in the illustration.
Sew buttonholes so that zigzag stitches cover the cord.
When completed, release the cord from foot and snip off
the extra length.
TWIN NEEDLE
IMPORTANT: When using a twin-needle, set
stitch width at 3.5 or less, or
otherwise needle may brake.
A twin-needle produces two rows of parallel stitches for pin
tucks, double top stitching and decorative sewing.
THREADING THE TWIN NEEDLE
1. Insert the second spool pin. Place a spool on each spool
pin. Thread the two threads as one. Draw one thread
through each needle from front to back.
2. Pick up bobbin thread as for single needle sewing. Pull
the three threads together under the presser foot to the
back of the machine, leaving about 6” (15 cm) of thread.
NOTE: Needle threader cannot be used to
thread the twin needle.
