FAQs & Troubleshooting
How do I sew with the twin needle?
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.
|Twin needle||Extra spool pin|
The twin needle and extra spool pin are available as optional accessories to be purchased separately.
Depending on the model you purchased, the following accessory may be included with your machine.
Attach the twin needle in the same way as a single needle. Refer to How do I change the needle?
The flat side of the needle should face toward the back and the rounded side should face toward you.
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.
|(1) First spool
(2) Second spool
You should thread each needle separately.
Models equipped with a needle threader
You cannot 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.
|(1) Needle bar thread guide|
Thread the left needle from front to back.
|(1) Left needle thread passes through the needle bar thread guide.
(2) Right needle thread passes in front of the needle bar thread guide.
(3) Needle bar thread guide
Two lines of stitching are sewn parallel to each other.
When changing the sewing direction, be sure to raise the needle from the fabric, and then raise the presser foot lever and turn the fabric. Otherwise the needle may break or the machine may be damaged.
