PREPARATORY WORK
Winding thread on to the bobbin
You can use the sewing machine to wind thread on to the bobbins
easily.
To do so, take the thread from the cotton reel through the thread
guide to the bobbin.
The exact procedure for winding thread on to the bobbin is descri-
bed in the following points:
• Set the switch in the hand wheel (10) to the bobbin symbol to
prevent the needle from moving while you wind thread on to
the bobbin.
• Pull one of the cotton reel holders (7) completely out and place
a cotton reel on it..
• Now guide the thread from the cotton reel through the thread
guide as illustrated.
• Put the end of the thread through the bobbin hole as illustrated
and wind the thread around the bobbin a few times by hand.
Page: 96
EN-10
• Place the bobbin on the bobbin spindle (8), with the side of the
bobbin containing the end of the thread facing upwards. Move
the bobbin spindle (8) to the right towards the winding stop (9)
until it audibly clicks into place.
• Hold on to the end of the thread and press the foot pedal. Once
some thread has been wound on to the bobbin, let go of the end
of the thread. Wind thread on to the bobbin until the bobbin
spindle (8) automatically stops.
• Move the bobbin spindle (8) to the left and remove the bobbin.
• Cut the thread.
• Set the switch in the hand wheel (10) back to the needle symbol.
The needle will now move again when you press the foot pedal.
If the thread is wound unevenly on the bobbin, you can adjust the
height of the thread guide:
• Open the front flap (21).
• Loosen screw (B) to adjust the height of the thread guide (A).
Page: 97
EN-11
EN
Removing the bobbin case
• Remove the table extension.
• Turn the hand wheel (10) to move the needle to its highest po-
sition, move the sewing foot to its highest position and open the
bobbin case cover (18) as illustrated.
• Open the rocking arm of the bobbin case and remove this from
the machine.
• When you let go of the rocking arm, the bobbin falls out of the
bobbin case.
Threading the bobbin case
• Hold the bobbin between the thumb and index finger of your
right hand and leave about 15 cm of the thread hanging out.
• Hold the bobbin case in your left hand and put the bobbin in the
bobbin case.
• Put the end of the thread into the slit on the edge of the bobbin
case.
• Now pass the thread through the tension spring and into the
thread hole. Make sure that around 15 cm of the thread is han-
ging out of the bobbin.
Page: 98
EN-12
Inserting the bobbin case
• Hold the bobbin case so that the finger of the case is pointing up-
wards. Open the rocking arm of the bobbin case.
• Put the bobbin case on the central pin and press the case in ca-
refully until the finger of the bobbin case enters the shuttle track
ring.
• Let go of the flap and press on the bobbin case.
• Close the bobbin case cover (18).
Threading the upper thread
Please read the following instructions carefully as an incorrect se-
quence or thread guiding can lead to broken threads, missed stit-
ches and gathered fabric.
A diagram of how to guide the thread is provided on the front
flap (21); you can also use this drawing as a guideline.
• Before threading the needle, raise the needle to its highest posi-
tion by turning the hand wheel (10) and raise the sewing foot le-
ver (15) to its highest position.
• Place a cotton reel on one of the cotton reel holders (7), making
sure the thread comes from behind the cotton reel.
• Hold the cotton reel with your right hand.
Page: 99
EN-13
EN
• Now pass the thread through the upper thread guide (3) as illu-
strated.
TIP
An upper thread tension of 3 is ideal for most applications.
• Pass the thread under the front thread guide and upwards,
which automatically pushes up the inner guide spring.
• Then insert the thread from right to left into the hook of the
thread take-up (1).
NOTE
If necessary, turn the hand wheel (10) to raise the thread take-up.
• Now guide the thread down towards the needle. It is thus chan-
nelled through the internal thread guide and thread guide of the
needle holder.
• Now pass the thread through the eye of the needle from the
front to the back and leave a thread end of around 10 cm.
Page: 100
EN-14
Bringing up the lower thread
• Move the sewing foot (26) to the upper position.
Turn the hand wheel (10) with your right hand towards you un-
til the needle moves down and back up again.
Stop turning the hand wheel (10) as soon as the needle has rea-
ched its highest position.
Hold the end of the upper thread with your left hand.
Pull the upper thread upwards slightly so that the lower thread
forms a loop.
• Pull around 10 cm of both threads out from under the sewing
foot (26).

SETTINGS
Setting the thread tension
If the thread tears while you are sewing, the thread tension is too
high.
If small loops are formed when you are sewing, the thread tension
is too low.
In both cases, you need to set the thread tension.
The tensions of the upper and lower threads must be in the correct
proportion to each other.
Adjusting the upper thread tension
The tension is created by the discs through which the thread is gui-
ded. The pressure on these discs is controlled by the upper tension
thread regulator (2).
The higher the number, the higher the tension.
NOTE
Upper thread tension of 3 is ideal for most sewing work.
The upper thread tension is not activated until the sewing foot is lo-
wered.
There are a number of reasons why you might need to adjust the
tension. For example, different tensions are required for different fa-
brics.
The tension you require depends on the strength and thickness of
the fabric, the number of layers of fabric you want to sew and the
type of stitch you choose.
Please make sure that the tensions of the upper and lower threads
match, as otherwise the fabric may gather.
We recommend that you carry out a test on a scrap of fabric before
starting work.
Adjusting the lower thread tension
The lower thread tension rarely needs to be adjusted as this has
been set by the manufacturer for general sewing work.
The lower thread tension is correct if you can pull the thread out of
the bobbin easily but with a slight resistance.
However, the lower thread does need to be adjusted for particularly
lightweight or heavy fabrics.
You set the lower thread tension by using the regulating screw on
the bobbin case. Adjust the screw using the small screwdriver pro-
vided.
Remove the bobbin case:
Low tension:
Turn the screw anticlockwise
Higher tension:
Turn the screw clockwise.
Page: 102
EN-16
Checking the lower thread tension
The easiest way of checking the lower thread tension is by sewing a
medium zigzag stitch on the fabric in question.
Use the appropriate needle and threads.
You can get a clearer picture by using different colours for the upper
and lower threads.
Sew a few zigzag stitches.
The thread tension is correct if the lower threads are not visible on
the top surface of the fabric.
Make sure that you always sew even stitches (see diagram on the
left).
Checking the thread tension
Correct stitches
The tension of the upper and lower thread should be sufficient to
ensure that the threads interlace in the middle of the fabric.
The fabric remains smooth and does not pucker.
Incorrect stitches
Upper thread is too tight and pulls the lower thread up. The lower
thread is visible on the upper fabric layer.
Solution:
Reduce the upper thread tension by turning the upper thread tensi-
on regulator (2) to a lower number.
Upper thread is too loose. The lower thread pulls the upper thread
down. The upper thread is visible on the underside of the fabric lay-
er.
Solution:
Increase the upper thread tension by turning the upper thread ten-
sion regulator (2) to a higher number.
In both cases in which the stitching is incorrect, you may also need
to adjust the lower thread tension.

SEWING
General information
Switch the main switch (13) on.
When changing the stitch type, always move the needle to its high-
est position. Push the fabric sufficiently far under the sewing
foot (26). Make sure there is a length of around 10 cm of the upper
and lower thread behind the needle.
Lower the sewing foot lever (15). While holding the thread with
your left hand, turn the hand wheel (10) towards you and lower the
needle to the point on the fabric where you want to start sewing.
Press the foot pedal – the more pressure you apply to the foot pedal,
the faster the machine runs. While sewing, guide the fabric gently
by hand. Sew a few reverse stitches by actuating the reverse
lever (12), to fix the first stitches in place.
TIP
If you are not sure whether the thread tension or stitch type, for ex-
ample, is correct, test the settings on a swatch.
The fabric automatically runs under the sewing foot (26): It should
not be held fast or pulled by hand, but should only be gently guided
so that the stitches go in the desired direction.
Selecting the right needle
The number indicating the needle thickness is written on the shaft.
The higher the number, the thicker the needle.
NOTE
Never use a needle that is bent or blunt.
Raising and lowering the sewing foot
You raise and lower the sewing foot lever (15) to raise and lower the
sewing foot (26).
The sewing foot (26) can be raised slightly to provide extra room
when sewing thick fabrics.
Page: 104
EN-18
Finger protector
This accessory prevents your hand from accidentally getting under
the needle.
Reverse stitching
Use reverse stitches to reinforce the first and last stitches.
• Press the reverse lever (12) and hold it down.
• Press the foot pedal – the more pressure you apply to the foot
pedal, the faster the machine runs.
• When you want to change to forward stitching, simple release
the reverse lever (12).
Removing fabric from the sewing machine
When you finish sewing, make sure that the needle is at its highest
position. To remove the fabric, raise the sewing foot (26) and pull
out the fabric from the back of the machine.
Changing the sewing direction
To change the sewing direction at the corner of the material, pro-
ceed as follows:
• Stop the machine and turn the hand wheel (10) towards you un-
til the needle is in the fabric.
• Raise the sewing foot (26).
• Turn the fabric around the needle to change the direction as
desired.
• Lower the sewing foot (26) and continue sewing.
Cutting the thread
Cut the thread using the thread cutter behind the sewing foot (26)
or with a pair of scissors. Leave around 15 cm of the thread hanging
from the eye of the needle.

Programme selection dial
On this sewing machine, you can select a number of different
functional and decorative stitches. You can use the programme sel-
ection dial (6) to easily select the stitch setting you want.
• Before changing the stitch, always make sure that the needle is
at its highest position.
The letters on the programme selection dial correspond to the let-
ters above the stitch setting illustrations.
• Turn the programme selection dial so that the arrow marker
points to the stitch type you want to use.
The width of the zigzag stitch is automatically set by turning the
programme selection dial (6).
TIP
If the machine does not create the selected stitch, turn the program-
me selection dial (6) one full rotation and then reset the stitch you
require.
Setting the stitch length
You use the stitch length regulator (11) to select the length of the
stitch type you selected.
• Turn the stitch length regulator so that the marker points to the
stitch length number you want to use.
• The numbers indicate the approximate stitch length in milli-
metres.
The lower the number, the shorter the stitch.
Setting the stitch width
You use the stitch width regulator (4) to select the width of the ziz-
zag stitch or the stitch type.
• Setting 0: straight stitch.
• Settings 1-5: Different widths of zigzag and decorative stitches.
NOTE
If you use the twin needle, set the stitch width to setting 3 max.
A higher position could break the needles.
Stitch types (programmes)
You set the stitch types using the programme selection dial (6).
Make sure that the needle is at its highest position before changing
the stitch type.
Test the stitching on a swatch before using a stitch programme for
your actual work.
NOTE
For information on attaching and removing the sewing foot, please
see page 31.

Zigzag stitch
The zigzag stitch is one of the most commonly used stitches. It can
be used for many different things, for example hemming, appliqué,
and monograms.
Before you use the zigzag stitch, sew a few straight stitches to rein-
force the stitching.

TIPS FOR ZIGZAG STITCHES
For a better zigzag stitch, the upper thread tension must be lower
than for straight stitches.
The upper thread should be slightly visible on the underside of the
fabric.
Satin stitch
Satin stitch, a zigzag stitch in which the stitches are very close toge-
ther, is particularly suitable for appliqué, monograms, and various
decorative stitches.

TIP
Whenever you use this stitch, reduce the upper thread tension
slightly. The wider the stitch, the lower the upper thread tension
should be. If you are sewing very thin or soft fabrics, you should pla-
ce a thin piece of paper under the fabric and sew this too. This pre-
vents stitches being missed and the material gathering.

Use a thread colour that exactly matches the fabric.
If you are sewing very light or transparent fabrics, use a transparent
nylon thread.
• Fold the fabric as illustrated.
• Sew on the fold, as illustrated. The straight stitches should be on
the hem, and only the points of the zigzag stitches should extend
into the upper fold of the fabric.
• Remove the fabric from the machine and straighten it out.
The folded-out fabric now has a blind hem stitch.
Elastic stitch: Triple straight and triple zigzag stitch
Thiese stitches are particularly suitable for sewing of elastic material
or knitwear, application of elastic bands etc.
It can also be used to reinforce elastic materials and to sew on fabric
pieces. It is also suitable for sewing on elastic. A seam with this stitch
is three times as strong as a normal seam and is also far more elastic.
The seam therefore stretches with the fabric without the thread bre-
aking.

Sewing all kinds of elastic fabrics
Use a synthetic thread, as this makes the stitches practically invisible.
Sewing together two pieces of fabric
You can use the elastic stitch to join two pieces of fabric.
• Place the two fabric edges under the sewing foot. Make sure that
the two edges remain together and that the needle enters the fa-
bric right and left at the same distance from the centre.
Sewing on elastic bands
• Position the elastic band as required.
• Sew on the elastic band using the elastic stitch, using your hands
to stretch out the band in front of and behind the sewing foot.
The more you stretch it, the more it will gather.

Smocking stitch
The smocking stitch can be used in many different ways and is de-
corative, e.g. for attaching lace or elastic bands, or for sewing on
stretch and other elastic materials.

For smocking work, please note the following:
Gather the material evenly.
Place a narrow strip of fabric under the gathers and sew over them
using the smocking stitch.
Finish the smocking work before you insert this decorative piece in
the garment.
In the case of very lightweight fabrics, the same effect can be achie-
ved by using an elastic thread on the bobbin.
Overlock-overcast stitch
This stitch is particularly suitable for sewing and patching jersey and
track suits. The stitch is both decorative and functional. It consists of
smooth side lines with cross-connections and is completely elastic.

Position the edge of the fabric under the sewing foot so that the
needle sews straight stitches with the right deflection and just tou-
ches the edge of the fabric, so that a zigzag stitch is sewn with the
left deflection.

• Set the foot and needle to their highest position. Replace the foot
with the buttonhole sewing foot.
• On the fabric, mark where you want to sew the buttonhole and
its length. Use a pencil or tailor's chalk.
How to proceed
• Use the programme selection dial (6) to select programme S to
sew the left bar.
• Pass the upper thread through the opening on the buttonhole
sewing foot and pull both the upper and lower thread to the left-
hand side. Lower the foot and sew slowly until you have achie-
ved the desired length for the side bar.
• Raise the needle to its highest position and change to program-
me S for the bottom bar.
• Sew a few stitches of the bottom bar.
• Raise the needle to its highest position again and change to pro-
gramme U for the right-hand bar.
• Now sew the right-hand bar with exactly the same length as the
left-hand side.
• Raise the needle to its highest position and select programme T
again for the top bar.
• Then sew a few stitches for the top bar, like you did for the bot-
tom bar.
• At the end, you are advised to set the stitch length to "0" and sew
a few more stitches so that the threads are better connected and
the buttonhole does not fray so quickly.
• Then use the knife provided to cut the fabric between the stit-
ches. Do this carefully to ensure you do not damage any of the
bars.
TIP
Pin a safety pin in front of the top bar to stop you cutting through it.

EN-24
Sewing on buttons and hooks and eyes
You can use the transparent blue sewing foot to sew on buttons,
hooks and eyes easily.
Use the programme selection dial (6) to select a zigzag stitch width
that corresponds to the distance between the holes.
• For this step, attach the darning plate to stop the fabric from slip-
ping. For information on attaching the darning plate, see
page 26
• Lower the sewing foot and place the button between the fabric
and sewing foot so that the zigzag stitch enters the holes of the
button, as illustrated.
• Check the button is positioned correctly by turning the hand
wheel (10) manually. The needle must exactly enter the holes of
the button, otherwise the needle may be damaged. If necessary,
change the width of the zigzag stitch.
• At a low speed, sew about 6 to 7 stitches per hole.
If the button has four holes, move the fabric and button: then sew
6 to 7 stitches in the other two holes. Once you have removed the
fabric, pass a generous length of the upper thread to the underside
of the fabric and knot it to the lower thread there.
Sewing buttons with a shank
In the case of heavy fabrics, a button shank is often needed.
• Place a needle or, for a thicker shank, a matchstick on the button
and then proceed to sew as for a normal button.
• After about 10 stitches, remove the material from the machine.
• Remove the needle or matchstick.
• Leave a longer length of upper thread, pass it through the but-
ton and wind it around the threads to create a shank, then pass
it through to the underside of the fabric and knot it to the lower
thread.

Sewing in zips
Use the zip sewing foot.
Depending on which side of the zip band you are sewing, the se-
wing foot must always be on the fabric.
For this reason, the sewing foot is attached on either the left-hand
or right-hand side, and not in the middle like all other sewing feet.
• Raise the sewing foot and needle to its highest position to switch
the sewing foot.
• Place the zip on the fabric and place the workpiece in position
under the foot.
• To sew the right-hand side of the zip, attach the zip sewing foot
so that the needle sews on the left-hand side (1).
• Sew the right-hand side of the zip, creating the stitches as close
as possible to the teeth. (1)
• Sew the zip in with a bridge around 0.5 centimetres below the
teeth.
• To sew the left-hand side of the zip, change the foot position on
the sewing foot holder.
• Proceed in the same way as for the right-hand side of the zip (2).
• Before the foot reaches the slider on the zip band, lift the foot up
and open the zip, keeping the needle in the material. (3)
Sewing in a drawstring
You can also use the zip sewing foot to sew in drawstrings, as illu-
strated.
• Fold the fabric over once to create a drawstring tunnel and then
sew along the drawstring, making sure the zip sewing foot is be-
hind the drawstring.
Hems
You can use the roll hem/hemming sewing foot to easily hem fine
to medium materials, e.g. blouses, silk scarves and flounces. Hem-
ming using the roll hemmer stops the edges from fraying and crea-
tes a clean, durable edge.
• Raise the sewing foot and needle to its highest position and re-
place the existing foot with the hemming foot.
• Fold the start of the hem around 2 mm in with a double fold.
• Insert this folded hem into the coil of the roll hemming foot.
• Carefully and slowly sew a few stitches, preferably by turning
the hand wheel (10).
• If the start of the hem was pulled into the foot, carefully start se-
wing the hem.
• Always hold the edge of the fabric somewhat over the left-hand
side of the sewing foot, to stop the fabric slipping out of the coil.
• Make sure that the fabric does not slip under the right-hand side
of the sewing foot.
Page: 112
EN-26
TIP
The hem can be inserted in the hemming foot more easily if you
hold the end of the fabric at a slight angle.
Before you start sewing, fix the hem with safety pins or iron down
the start of the hem.
For this work, you need to use suitable materials and have some ex-
perience in order to obtain the best results.
Darning
Attaching the darning plate
For some sewing work, e.g. sewing on buttons, hooks and eyes, as
well as darning and embroidering, the material must not be fed au-
tomatically and you must be able to control the feeding of the ma-
terial yourself.
In these cases, you must attach the darning plate included in the ac-
cessories.
• Raise the sewing foot lever (15) and turn the hand wheel (10) to
raise the needle to its highest position.
• Now push both pins of the darning plate into the openings on
the needle plate (19) until they click into place, as shown in figu-
res 1 and 2.
• To remove the darning plate again, you simply need to lift up
one of the corners.
Darning
• Remove the sewing foot holder and select the normal lower
thread tension.
The upper thread tension should be somewhat lower than usual.
If necessary, you can place a piece of fabric under the damaged
area.
• Place the material under the needle and lower the sewing foot
lever (15) to apply the thread tension.
• Begin sewing by pushing moving the fabric forwards and back-
wards by hand.
• Repeat until the damaged area has been completely filled with
parallel stitches.
• If necessary, you can darn over these stitches with stitches at
right angles to them, as you do when darning by hand.
TIP
During darning, the fabric must be taut. If the damaged area is lar-
ge, it is advisable to use an embroidery frame (available from specia-
list retailers) to keep the material taut.
Page: 113
EN-27
EN
Embroidering
General information
Remove the sewing foot holder, attach the darning plate and select
the normal lower thread tension.
The upper thread tension must be low enough that the lower
thread is not pulled to the upper side of the fabric.
• Stretch the fabric taut in an embroidery frame (available from
specialist retailers).
• Lower the sewing foot to apply the thread tension.
• Hold the embroidery frame by hand while you sew the desired
pattern. Do not move the fabric itself, only the embroidery fra-
me.
NOTE
Do not let your fingers get too close to the needle.
TIP
We recommend drawing the desired embroidery pattern on the up-
per side of the fabric in pencil or tailor's chalk (available from spe-
cialist retailers).

EN-28
Sewing with a twin needle
The twin needle is available from well-stocked specialist retailers.
When buying a twin needle, make sure that the distance between
the two needles is no more than 2.5 mm.
The twin needle can be used to create attractive, two-coloured pat-
terns if you use different coloured threads when sewing.
TIP
Only use the straight stitch or the zigzag stitch with the twin needle.
Set the stitch width to a maximum position of 3.
Applying other stitch types or using a higher stitch width could
cause the needles to bend or break.
• Attach the twin needle in the same way as you would a single
needle (see page 30).
• Place two equally full cotton reels on the removable cotton reel
holders (7).
• Make sure that the two felt discs included in the accessories are
in place on the two cotton reel holders (7).
• Pass the two threads through the thread holder in the same way
as for a single thread.
• Guide both threads through the upper thread tension discs ma-
king sure that one thread goes to the right of the central disc and
the second thread goes to the left of the disc.
• Insert both threads in the thread guide.
• Insert one thread through the eye of the needle on the right-
hand side, and one thread on the left-hand side.
NOTE
To sew a corner using the twin needle, take the needle out of the
fabric, as otherwise the twin needle may bend or break.

Sewing with the free arm
The free arm (16) enables you to sew tube-shaped pieces more ea-
sily. This function is very useful e.g. when sewing sleeves and
trouser legs.
You can easily turn your sewing machine into a free-arm machine
by removing the table extension and accessories box from the se-
wing machine
The free arm (16) is particularly useful for the following work:
-- Repairing elbows and knees in garments
-- Sewing sleeves, in particular on smaller garments
-- Appliqué, embroidery or hemming edges, cuffs or trouser legs.
-- Sewing elasticated waistbands on skirts or trousers.
Seam guide
The seam guide helps you to create straight and parallel seams alo-
ng the edge of the fabric.
• Slightly turn the knurled screw of the guide into the threaded
hole to the right of the needle plate (19).
• Adjust the guide to the required distance and then tighten the
screw.
The needle plate (19) contains a number of guide lines to help you.
Quilting guide
• Push the quilting guide underneath the clamp spring to the in-
tended depth.
• Mark the first seam with tailor's chalk and sew it.
• You use the quilting guide to sew the second seam parallel to the
first.
• The distance between the seams can be adjusted by moving the
bar in the direction of the arrow.

Maintaining the sewing machine
The sewing machine is a sensitive mechanical product and requires
regular maintenance to ensure it always functions perfectly.
You can carry out this maintenance yourself.
Above all, maintenance means cleaning and oiling.
NOTE
Only use high-quality sewing machine oils. Other oils are not suita-
ble.
Please note that after oiling, there may be oil residue in the machine.
To get rid of this residue, sew a few stitches on a swatch or scrap of
fabric. This will stop your actual fabric from getting soiled.

Cleaning the housing and foot pedal
Before cleaning, remove the plug from the mains socket.
Use a dry, soft cloth to clean the housing and foot pedal. Avoid the
use of chemical solutions and cleaning products because these may
damage the appliance surface or markings.
Cleaning the feeder
It is necessary to keep the fabric feeder teeth clean at all times to en-
sure perfect stitching.
• Remove the needle and sewing foot (see page 30 f.).
• Remove the screws on the needle plate (19) to remove the need-
le plate from the machine.
• Use a brush to remove dust and loose threads from the feeder
teeth.
• Replace the needle plate (19).

Oiling the machine
NOTE
Your sewing machine is delivered oiled and ready for use.
Oiling the machine behind the front flap
The places that need to be oiled are marked with an arrow on the
illustration. You should clean these areas before oiling them. Put
one or two drops of a good sewing machine oil on these areas.
If the machine does not run perfectly if it was out of use for a long
period of time, run the oiled machine at high speed for about a mi-
nute with the front flap (21) closed.
Do not forget to first sew on a fabric scrap to absorb any leaked oil.
TIP
These parts of the machine may need to be oiled more frequently,
depending on how often you use the machine.

FABRIC, THREAD AND NEEDLE TABLE
As a general rule, fine threads and needles are used to sew thin fa-
brics, thicker threads and needles are used for heavier fabrics. Al-
ways test the thread and needle thickness on a scrap of the fabric
you intend to use. Use the same thread for needle and bobbin. If
you sew stretch stitches on fine fabrics or synthetics, use a needle
with a blue shaft (available from specialist retailers). These prevent
stitches from being missed.
