How do I adjust a stitch width or length?

This machine is preset with the default settings for the stitch width and stitch length for each stitch. These settings can be changed as needed.

  • To return the settings to their defaults, turn off the machine, or select a different stitch.
     
  • If a straight stitch or triple stretch stitch is selected, changing the stitch width changes the needle position. Increasing the width moves the needle to the right;reducing the width moves the needle to the left.
  • After adjusting the stitch width, slowly turn the handwheel toward you (counterclockwise) and check that the needle does not touch the presser foot. If the needle hits the presser foot, the needle may bend or break.
     
  • If the stitches are bunched together, increase the stitch length. Continuing to sew with the stitches bunched together may result in the needle bending or breaking.
