Rules

Do not sew over pins. You must follow the thread path when removing thread. Never remove it backwards. Keep all parts with the machine and store together when done. If something breaks during your use, inform the coordinator.

Only use bobbins (part code: SA156, SFB: XA5539-151) that have been designed for this sewing machine. Using other bobbins may cause damage to the machine. ● We designed the bobbin that comes with this machine. If you use bobbins from other models, the machine will not work properly. Only use the bobbin that comes with this machine or bobbins of the same type (part code: SA156, SFB: XA5539-151).

Instructions

By default the straight stitch aligns to the left instead of center.

    • This was frustrating because I was mainly using a straight-stitch foot and had to be sure to move the needle to center position to ensure I didn't hit the presser foot with the needle.
  • The machine is incredibly light weight so it moves around on the table as the fabric feeds.
  • On thick seams the machine simply won't go through the layers.
    • It's nice that it errors out rather than breaking a needle or damaging the motor. Still, if you want to go through thick seams, you'll need another machine (maybe a metal vintage Kenmore or Singer?) to get the job done.
  • The throat space (the area between the needle bar and the body of the machine) isn't very large so don't expect to quilt anything larger than a table runner.
  • two things learned from videos and reviews more than the manual: how to thread the needle using the built in needle threader, and, most importantly, what brands of thread to use. Thankfully, the two most recommended thread brands - Gutermann and Coats & Clark - also happen to be the most common (and affordable) at our local Joann’s.
  • Carry the sewing machine by its handle when transporting the machine.
  • Put the accessories in the bag, and then store the bag inside the compartment. If the accessories are not in a bag, they may fall out, and be lost or damaged.
