CHANGING THE NEEDLE 1. Turn the balance wheel towards you until the needle is in its highest position. 2. Loosen the needle clamp screw by turning its top edge towards you. Remove the needle from the clamp. 3. Place the new needle into the needle clamp with it , s flat side facing away from you. Push the needle up into needle clamp as far as possible. 4. Tighten the needle clamp screw firmly. TO SELECT A SUITABLE NEEDLE A number indicating the size of needle is marked on the Stem stem. The higher the number, the thicker the needle. A STRETCH needle is stretch needle recommended for stretch fabrics. * Do not use any needle which is bent or blunted.

The STRETCH needle effectively prevents skipped stitches. *When sewing very fine fabrics, sew over a piece of paper to prevent yarn distortion. (4)(3) 5

REMOVING AND ATTACHING THE PRESSER FOOT To Remove: 1. Turn the balance wheel towards you until the needle is at its highest position. 2. By lifting the lever on the back of the foot holder, the presser foot will drop off. Note: *Do not force the presser foot to remove it. To Attach: 1. Place the presser foot so that the pin on the foot lies just under the groove of the foot holder. Lower the foot holder. , 2. When the presser foot lifter is raised youll fin d the presser foot is locked in place. REGULATING THE THREAD TENSION Generally, should any tension adjustment be necessary, the adjustment can normally be made by regulating the upper thread tension dial only. Bobbin thread tension has been adjusted at the factory and readjustment is seldom required except for special instances, thread and fabric. Bobbin thread tension is just right when you can pull the thread from bobbin case easily with a little resistance. Thread tension may be adjusted by tightening or loosening the thread tension dial. Properly tension for adjusted straight thread sewing The tight needle thread is too The loose needle thread is too The needle thread and the bobbin thread should interiock in the center of two layers of fabric The thread pears upper of the bobbin on fabrics surface ap- the The thread pears underside the fabrics needle on ap- the of * How thread to tension adjust the bobbin Loosen the needle thread tension by To increase tension, moving the dial to the lower number turn screw clock wise. To decrease tension. turn screw counter- clock wise. Tighten the needle thread tension by moving the dial to the higher number Remember the higher the number, the tighter the tension. Correctly balanced tensions for one fabric may not be suitable for another. The required tension depends upon the stiffness of fabric, thickness of the fabric, numbers of layers of fabric being sewn, as well as the type of stitch you are making. It is better to test the stitch- ing on a scrap of the fabric you are using before starting to make a garment. The general range for many fabrics is 3-5. 6 presser foot lifter 1 2lever groove pin 21

STITCH LENGTH DIAL (Model 377 and 374 only) To change the length of the stitches proceed as follows: Turn the dial so that the number for the required stitch length is at setting mark. The numbers indicate the approximate stitch length in mm. The smaller the numbers, the shorter the stitch. Model 377 Model 374 setting mark stitch lengths REVERSE STITCH: (Model EP 377/374/373/372/372H) Press center of the stitch length dial (reversing button) and hold for reverse stitching. Fabric will immediately start feeding backwards. Release button and machine will resume normal forward sewing. Very useful for fastening ends of seams and darts without having to tie threads, and for strengthening seams. Model E P 377 Model 3 74 Model 3 73/372/372H THE PATTERN SELECTOR(Model 377) The desired pattern can be selected by turning the pattern selector dial.

This is a standard adjustment for most types of fabric. For different types of fabric, adjustment may be necessary. To shorten the stretch stitches, turn the dial slightly to- wards To lengthen, turn the dial towards . On most fabrics, these adjustments allow for various pattern possibilities. When making stretch stitches, the mark must always be within the SS range - (see drawing). SS SS Selecting Stretch Stitch: When sewing stretch stitch, set the stitch length dial at S.S. .

Mark the pencil or tailor location , s and the desired length of buttonhole on the fabric using a chalk. Note: (Model EP 377 and 374 only) *To find the mos t s uitable stitch length, it is better to sew a sample buttonhole on a piece of waste fabric. * When sewing very fine fabrics and synthetics, de- crease the pressure of foot and sew over a piece of paper to prevent yarn dis- tortion. * The mark on the stitch length dial shows a range of buttonhole sewing. An adjustment can be made by setting the mark, as shown. * B uttonhole s titch length is adjustable only on one side. DOUBLE ACTION STITCH DOUBLE OVERLOCK STITCH (Model EP 377 only) This is a good stilch to use in attaching or binding elastic fabrics and stretch lace, lingerie stretch knit. The stitch is decorative as well as useful. Use this versatile stitch to insert elastic in garments. Simply stitch elastic into place, making sure it is evenly spaced.

SEWING EMBROIDERY Presser foot Pattern selector ( ) or zig zag Raise and take off the foot. Place the fabric in embroidery hoop. Place darning plate over needle plate (see below). Lower the presser foot lifter. Hold the embroidery hoop firmly with your hand. While sewing the desired pattern, move the embroidery hoop slowly and do not allow your fingers to get near the needle. *Set the needle thread tension a little looser so that the bobbin thread is not pulled through to the right side of fabric. (See page 13). *It is recommended on the right to mark the required embroidery side of the fabric with a pencil or tailor , s pattern chalk. DARNING PLATE There are a few times when you want to control the feeding of the fabric yourself. Raise needle to its highest position and raise presser foot. Place darning plate over needle plate aligning two pins of darning plate with holes of needle plate. You may then determine the movement of the fabric yourself. See above for embroidery.

CLEANING THE FEED DOG It is necessary to keep the feed dog teeth always cleaned in order to ensure smooth sewing. 1. Remove the needle and the presser foot. 2. Unscrew the needle plate set screws with a screw driver to take off the needle plate from the machine. 3. With a brush, clean out dust and lint clogged on the feed dog teeth. 4. Refit the needle plate. CLEANING THE SHUTTLE RACE Unplug the machine from the power supply. To remove shuttle: Raise needle to its highest position and remove bobbin case. Turn levers away from shuttle and lift out retaining ring and shuttle, by grasping center pin. Clean the reverse side of feed dog with a small brush. Remove lint and thread from all parts of shuttle and wipe with a lightly oiled cloth. To reassemble: Hold shuttle by center pin and fit carefully back into shuttle race, forming perfect circle with shuttle driver.. Replace retaining ring polished side out, making sure the bottom pin fits into notch. Lock retaining ring by turning levers back into position, Refit bobbin case with bobbin. 18 shuttle driver lever shuttle retaining ring lever lever

bobbin bobbin case FREE ARM SEWING This sewing machine can be used like a flat bed machine, but easily converts to a free arm machine by removing the extension table. The free arm enables you to sew tubular types of pieces more easily. Just slip the sleeve or pants leg on the free arm as shown above. You will find many uses for this free arm feature such as: 1.
