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.

  • 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.

 

 

Setting the stitch length

The stitch length can be adjusted to make the stitch coarser (longer) or finer (shorter).

Press [+] or [-] of the stitch length keys to increase or reduce the stitch length.
