In order to make threading of the needle easier and

quicker the PFAFF needle threader is provided.

Lower the sewing foot (see next page). Take one

stitch to bring the needle to its highest position.

Place the needle thread under hook 0 and hold it

taut Move the threader (1 9) fully downwards and

turn it towards the needle so that the small hook R

goes through the needle eye. Place the thread into

the hook from the underside.

Turn the threader towards the rear, releasing the

thread carefully, and allow the threader to move

upwards. You can now pull the end of the thread

through the needle eye.

The built-in dual fabric feed (IDT system)

For sewing difficult materials PFAFF offers the ideal

built-in Dual Feed. The sSrne as on

industrial sewing machines, it feeds the fabric from

top and bottom at the same time. The fabric is

accurately. On light or difficult fabrics such as

silk and rayon fabrics the dual fabric feed prevents

seam pucker. The even feeding action also ensures

perfect matching of checked and striped fabrics

(see next page).

Disengaging the Dual Feed

Hold the Dual Feed with two fingers at the marked

places. Pull the Dual Feed (40) down a little and

out to the rear, and let it move slowly upwards (see

Setting the balance

Appearance and size of an embroidery pattern

depend on the material it is embroidered on — i.e.

wool is fed in a different way as silk. In order for

you to reach optimum embroidery pattern quality

the tiptronic is provided with a correction system

called balance to change the backwards feed. The

default setting of the balance is 0. When the upper

lamp of the balance slide key (9) has lit up, you

can alter the balance within a range from —7 to +7

The balance setting is shown in the upper display

line on the right

The more the slide key is pushed to the left the

shorter are the backwards stitches, i.e. the stitches

of the pattern are set less densely.

Explanation of the table for sewing

recommendations

Whenever a program is selected, the machine sets

a basic stitch length, stitch width and balance

automatically.

You can change these settings according to fabric

and sewing purpose using slide keys 7, 8 and 9.

In the following tables you will find the settings we

recommend for different sewing purposes.

These tables give you further information required

for sewing the selected programs:

The type of sewing foot you need, the needle

thread tension setting, and whether you should

sew with the Dual Feed engaged or disengaged.

stitch you have to press the foot control each time.

• Place the fabric under the sewing foot

• Sew one stitch, then pull the fabric to the rear by

the required amount

• Repeat this as many times as you need to finish

the work.

To prevent the fabric layers from shifting,

insert dress pins crosswise to the basting direction.

Light fabrics are easier to baste with long straight

Some sewing jobs can be done easier by changing

the needle position, i.e. topstitching a collar or

sewing in a zipper. To change the needle position,

use Program 02. Before you change its position,

always make sure the needle is at its highest point

Zigzag stitch

Zigzag stitch 1 0 can he used for trouble-free

finishing of all edges. While finishing an edge,

always make sure the needle goes into the fabric

and over the edge alternately.

In Program 1 0 the width of the zigzag stitch

changes from the middle outwards. In Program 11

the needle position changes toward the left, and in

program 12 toward the right, i.e. the stitch width

can be regulated to one side, i.e. for eyelet em

broidery and cording work.

For finishing difficult fabrics, blind stitch foot No. 3

is very useful. During sewing, the thread lies over

pin C, thus preventing curling of the fabric edge. In

this way you can sew beautiful smooth seams.

The edge of the cutting has to be guided along

edge guide B. You can adjust this edge guide with

adjusting screw A.

Important: Only use the blind stitch foot in Pro

gram 11.

Programs 50 to 52 are zigzag stitches which can

be set particularly dense. Therefore they are well

suited for appliqué work,

Stretch triple straight stitch

A’

• 3-5 0/1

This program is used for sewing all seams where

great strength is needed, i.e. inside trouser seams

and sleeve seams. The heavier the fabric, the longer

the stitch length you need.

Program 06 can be lengthened up to 4.5 mm, and

Program 07 up to 6 mm. This is why Program 07

at the longest stitch length is suitable for fancy

topstitching edges or lapels on classic jackets and

coats.

TIP: It you wish to topstitch a collar edge with

Program 07, use the functions “needle down” and

“single pattern”. Do not press the single pattern key

until you reach the last stitch before the corner, the

machine will stop after the stitch, and the needle

stays in the material. Now turn the fabric; the

“single pattern” function switches itself off.

What is an overlock stitch?

N

N

N

N

For knit and other stretch fabrics the tiptronic offers

a selection of overlock stitches. These join two

layers of fabric and finish them in one operation.

They have a high elasticity, are more durable, and

you can sew them fast, too.

TIP: When you sew overlock seams, we recom

mend you use blind stitch foot No. 3. It guides the

fabric better and prevents tunneling of the seam at

wider stitch widths.

Buttonholes

The tiptronic 6270 offers you different buttonhole

sewing programs to choose from.

Depending on the fabric and type of work, you can

choose between three different buttonhole pro

grams.

Buttonholes are generally sewn onto a piece of

doubled fabric. However, for some materials, i.e

silk, organza and rayon fabric, it is necessary to use

a paper backing to prevent the material from

tunneling during sewing.

To produce beautiful seams, good embroidery

threads are ideally suitable.

Mark the starting point of the buttonhole with a

disappearing-ink pen and always sew a sample

buttonhole first

64

Note: Before starting any buttonhole, always push

the guide of the buttonhole foot fully to the front,

i.e. so that the red arrow is at the first red mark.

Self-defined second bartack (semiautomatic)

On difficult fabrics such as silk it may happen that

the machine feeds differently and the buttonhole

beads do not turn out the same length.

With stored buttonholes you can correct this with

the help of the semiautomatic control. To define

the length of the second bartack yourself, press key

(3) “buttonhole”. ‘Auto” disappears from the

ButtonhoJe with gimp thread

To produce highly durable buttonholes, i.e.. for

sportswear, we recommend using a gimp thread.

For all stretchable fabrics, too, a gimp thread is very

important, in order to avoid overstretching of the

buttonhole.

• Place the gimp thread over the back ridge A and

pull the thread ends under the sewing foot to the

front

• Pull the threads in to the left and right of ridge B.

• Push the buttonhole slide fully forward, then sew

the buttonhole.

• Pull the loop of the girnp thread into the

buttonhole and cut off the loose thread ends.

Stretch buttonhole

Program 72 is very useful for sewing buttonholes

in stretchable materials, i.e. in jogging suits. It can

also he used for making decorative buttonholes,

i.e. in national costume blouses.

You can determine the length and width of the

buttonhole yourself.

• Push the butonhole slide fully to the front

• Sew the first buttonhole bead at the required

length.

• Press the buttonhole key (3). The machine now

sews the first bartack and the second bead.

Shortly before the second bartack the machine

automatically sews slower.

• As soon as the two buttonhole beads are the

same length, press key (3) again. The machine

now sews the second buttonhole bartack and

secures it automatically.

The buttonhole length is now stored. All further

buttonholes are now sewn automatically at the

then “Auto” is also deleted.

Needle thread tension Topstitching

In order to obtain perfect sewing results, the needle

and bobbin thread tensions must be correctly

adapted to each other. The normal setting for utility

stitches is 3 to 5.

Check the tension using a wide zigzag stitch. The

interlace of the two threads must lie in the middle

of the two fabric layers.

If the interlace lies on the top side of the fabric, this

means the needle thread tension is too tight If it

lies on the underside, the needle thread tension is

set too loose.

To adjust the bobbin thread tension please refer to

page 24.

With Program 02 you can change the needle

position so that you can always guide the sewing

foot along the fabric edge for topstitching work. If

you wish to topstitch at a wider width than this,

simply guide the fabric along the guide marks on

the needle plate, or use edge guide 8. The edge

guide is inserted into hole C and is secured with

screw F.

Sewing aid for thick seams

To ensure correct feeding at the beginning of the

seam we recommend placing a piece of fabric of

the same thickness as the workpiece under the

sewing foot to support it

Sewing hems with the twin needle

With the twin needle you can not only embroider,

but also make topstitch seams.

Using the twin needle you can lend a professional

touch to hems on stretch materials such as T-shirts,

knitted articles or cycling shorts both quickly and

easily. Twin needles are available in different

widths. The most common is 2.5 mm.

Threading the twin needle

Replace the sewing needle with a twin needle.

• Push on the second spool holder and place a

spool on each holder.

• Tension disk C is inside the left-hand threading

slot (21). Make sure that one thread is guided

along the disk to the left and one thread to the

right

• First fold up hem allowance and press.

• Then stitch the hem from the right side of the

fabric.

• Finally, trim the overlapping hem edge back to

the seam.

TIP: On difficult fabrics such as rib knits it is easier

to baste the hem before topstitching.

• Continue to insert the threads in the normal way

making sure that the threads do not become

tangled.

Pull the threads to the right and to the left

through thread guide (20) and thread the

needles.

Gathering with straight stitch

With Program 00 at a stitch length of 6 mm you

can gather sleeves, skirts or valances. To obtain

neat and even gathers you should sew two or three

gathering seams.

• Mark the first line on the right side of the fabric

and stitch along it. Leave about four or five

inches of thread at the end.

a You can now stitch the other row at a sewingfoot

width away using the first one as a guide.

70

• Now gather the fabric by pulling the bottom

threads. You determine the amount of gather

yourself.

• Finally, knot the thread ends together to secure

the gather.


Gathering with elastic threads

athering sleeves or waist seams is no problem at

II with elastic threads. The elastic thread must not

a wound onto the bobbin.

Mark the first gathering row on the wrong side of

the fabric.

I Make a few staing stitches using Program 24,

then leave the needle down in the fabric. The

needle must be at the middle of the sewing foot.

Raise the sewing foot and place the elastic

thread around the needle.

Lower the sewing foot again and sew a few more

stitches, but do not pull the ends of the elastic

thread until these are sewn.

From then on you determine the amount of

gather by the amount you pull on the elastic

thread.

After sewing you can still change the amount of

gather by pulling both elastic threads.

Finally, knot the threads and the elastic.

7

TIP: The pintuck foot (special accessory) is also

ideal for gathering. The grooves in this foot guide

the elastic evenly during the sewing action.

shirring with elastic thread you should use an

additional bobbin case and wind the elastic thread

oy hand. Since elastic threads are nucli thicker

than normal bobuin threads, the tension on tIre

bobbin case must be set very loose. However, the

tighter you set the bobbin thread tension the

greater the shirring effect you obtain.

• First sew a test row to determine the amount ci

gather.

• Mark the first ne on the right side of the fubi ic

and stitch along it.

• You can now stitch the ether row at e sewing

fool width away using the Iirst one as a urIc.

• If you sew several rows, one beside the other,

you have to stretch the fabric to its oi iginal

length during sewiilcj, otherwise the shining will

be irregular

Darning with straight stitch

Attach the darning foot:

Set the needle at its highest position and push tne

pin of the darning foot fully into hole C. When

you do this, guide fork G places itself around the

presser bar. Wire E must be behind set screw F.

Now tighten screw D.

Darning position:

Lower the presser bar lifter A and push it lightly to

the rear. This positions the presser bar lifter into

notch B (darning position).

• Place the darning work in the darning hoop.

• Lower the feed dog (see page 32).

• Draw up the bobbin thread and hold the threads

when you start sewing.

• Darn over the damaged area by moving the

fabric evenly in the required direction. When

doing so, move the fabric in shallow curves. This

prevents tearing of the darn Inter.

• When you have stitched evenly over the darning

area, turn the fabric 90 degrees and darn over

the damaged area again.

You determine the stitch length for this work

yourself by moving the fabric back and forth.

TIP: If small knots appear on the underside, this

means you have been moving the fabric too slowly.

There are different ways to sew in zippers. For skirts

we recommend inserting the zipper concealed on

• •: both sides, and for men’s or ladies slacks concea

led on one side. Difierent types of zippers are

avaiinble in shops and stores. For fir ii ateriels

such as jeans we recommend metal zippers, and

plastic zippers for all other materials.

For all types of zippers it is important to sew right

up close to the teeth of the zipper. This is why the

zipper foot can be attached to the foot mIner to

the left or right, aepending or toe n inthod of

insertion.

Using one of the 1 3 needle positions vot car also

set the needie so that it enters close to the edue of

the zipper teeth. It the sewing foot is engaged on

the right side, the needle position must only he

changed to the right. If the foot is attached left, the

needle must only be moved to the left

76

Inserting zippers conceaied on both sides

• Attach the zipper foot to the right side.

• Place the zipper Linder the sewing foot so that

the teeth run at the side of the root. Uninq

Program 02 fun can set the needie a’, tin’

• Sew in half of the zipper, leave the needle in the

fabric, raise the sewing foot and close the zipper

• Now you can sew the rest of the seam to the end

of the zipper and stitch the crosswise scan

• Sew the second half of the zipper parallel at the

same distance.

• Stop shortly before the end of the seam and

leave thu needle in the fabric. Raise the sewing

foot arid open the zipper.

• You can now sew to the end of the seam. N

Trouser zippers

• Iron the seam margin over, making sure there is

an overlap of about 1/8’.

• Baste the zipper under the overlapping edge so

that the teeth are still visible.

• Attach the zipper toot on the right and set the

needle at the required position.

• Stitch close along the edge of the zipper.

• Shortly before the end of the seanr open the

zipper and finish sewing the seam.

Embroidering with the twin needle

ou can achieve additional embroider-v effects by

using the twin needle. The illustrations show what

beautiful borders can be made with a little imaqi

nation.

Only use a twin needle with a width of 2.5 mm for

these embroidery designs.

Note:

As soon as embroidery programs are selected the

twin needle indicator (6) lights up. in this case do

not use the twin needle. If you reduce the stitch

width using the stitch width slide key (7), indicator

(6) will go out in some programs. Then an opti

mum stitch width has been set and ‘/011 can sew

the pattern using the twin needle.

Threading the twin needle

• Insert the twin needle.

• Attach tIre second spool holder and place one

spool of thread on each holder.

• In the left threading slot (21) you will find

tension disk C During threading. nial.e sure tl rat

YOLI pass one thread left and one tin end i iqht

• Continue threading in the usual way, but make

sure the threads are not twisted with each other.

• Pull the threads right and left into thread guide

Cross-stitch

No matter whether you embroider tapes as critts,

blouses or home decor, graphic border desiqns are

simple to make with the cross-stitch program of

the tiptronic, and they look as if they are sewn by

hand. Even if you have never done cross-stitch

work before, these borders can be made with on

problem at all. Since the program can be set at

different sizes, you can achieve different effects

with little effort.

• Place stabilizer under the linen border.

• Mark the pattern as shown in tire illustration with

tailoring chalk or disappear mg-ink pen, nncl

embroider it iii the desired color using Pioqiani

69. Press the “single pattern’ key at the end of

each pahlern,

• Pull the threads to the back and knot them

tog eti or.

TIP: The border embroidery on the wide border can

be clone with a wide cioss stitci i 81 to 5 nind and

on the i arrow border with o narrower ci oss-stitch

(3 miii).

Embroidering leather

t’\/ith the tiptronic you can embroider leather with

no oroblem at all.

Since leather stretches easily, you should use an

iron-on backing or place two layers of stabilizer

under it, The stitch length should not be set too

short, because leather tears between stitcl holes

easily.

Embroidering leather can be made even easier by

using a Teflon sewing foot (special accessory). The

Teflon covering allows the foot to shoe easily over

the leather. Depending on the thickness of the

leather and thread, we recommend rising a special

needle or a needle with a large eye li 30 Nl.

Please note that needle penetration holes in leather

remain visible when ripping out tire thread.

Tins is the way to do it:

• Apply iron-on or tear-awn stabilizer as an

menacing.

• Embroider Program 62 (extended) over the

center of the belt.

• Sew the clots with program 64 (do not forget the

single pattern key).

• Attach tire cording foot and over-stitch the omp

thread with Proqram 50 (reduced in stitch width

and riensity)

• Finally, embroider the triangular border parallel To

the cordinci seam with Program 61 -

TIP: Leave enough space in the embroidery for the

eyelets which are punched m later.

Pintuci’,

The classic pintuck sewing techniciue can be used

without any problems on fabrics such as cotton

and light woolens. Underclothing and children’s

wear can be given a tradrional look with ointucks.

• Attacb me pintuck foot

• Replace the needle with a twin needlo 1 .6 or

2 mm).

• Thread with two needle threads (see page 69).

• Now set the needle thread tension quite tight

(at about 5) to make the soarn more prominent.

TIP: If you wish to emphasize the pintuck effect,

you can fit a ‘cording blade” on the front edge 01

the needle plate. This shapes the fabric, during

sewing and gives the pintuck nor e volume.

110

You can obtain a similar effect by using a pimp

thread; this makes the pintuck look wirier

In this case, however, do riot use a cording blade.

• To do this, remove the needle plate

• Thread the gimp thread through the role of the

noodle plate from the underside.

• Replace the needle plate. Tire notch between the

needle plate and the Sewing machine provides

space for the gimp thread. TIns thread rirust be

fed under the needle plate, so that it does riot

become tangled during sewinq

• While sewing the pintuck, pull the fabric lightly.

• You can use the grooves in the pintucl foot to

guide the work along an already sewn pintrick.

This ensures that the distance between pintucks

is always constant.

TIP: There are two different prituck feet: a five-

groove and a seven groove toot (sec table on page

Changing the needle plate

-

It is very important to clean and oil the sewing

machine because it will reward you with a longer

service life. The more often you use the machine,

the more care it needs.

Removal:

Switch off the master switch

• Raise the sewing foot and remove the needle

plate.

• Push the point of a small screwdriver into the

opening between needle plate and sewing

macnine. Twist it lightly to the right and the

needle plate will snap halfway out of its moun—

ting. Now push the screwdriver underneath the

needle plate on the left side, turn it to the right

and take the entire needle plate oLit.

Replacing

• Place the needle plate on flat at the hack and

push it down with both hands at the front until

you hear it snap in place. Before you start

sewing, check that the needle plate is lying flat.

. - -

Cleaning and oHing

Switch off the master switch

• Remove the needle plate and lower the feed dog.

• Clean the feed dog and hook area with the brush.

• Then apply a drop of oil (every 1 5 to 20 hours of

operation) to the hook. You can see where to

apply the oil in the illustration and on the provi—

ded oil bottle.

The machine is otherwise maintenance free and

must not he oiled.
