1/2 41 Twin Needle Sewing Some of the utility stitches and decorative stitches can be sewn with the twin needle. CAUTIONS: Turn the power switch off before changing the needle. Use the twin needle included in the standard accessories. NOTE: When you sew patterns with the twin needle, test the stitches first before you sew. Use the zigzag foot A or satin stitch foot F for twin needle sewing. Insert the extra spool pin and spool supporter. Then put a felt cushion and spool on it. Draw both threads from the spools and pass them through the threading points from 1 to 5. Make sure that the two strands of thread from the spools do not get tangled. NOTES: Make sure each thread winds off from the spools as shown. Threading from points 1 to 5 is the same as for a single needle. Slip one of the threads through the needle bar thread guide on the left, and the other one on the right. Thread the needles from the front to back. NOTES: The Automatic needle threader cannot be used for the twin needle. When changing the sewing direction, raise the needle and turn the fabric. Select the pattern then press the twin needle key. If the selected pattern is not suitable for twin needle sewing, the twin needle key will gray out and be disabled. After the twin needle sewing is finished, press the twin needle key and the warning message will appear. Press the OK key and replace the twin needle with a single needle.
