While all sewing machines have the same basic parts, it is a good idea to refer to the
manual for your specific machine to see where each part is located and what it looks like.
Hand Wheel - Used to manually raise and lower the needle.
Stitch Selector - Turn this dial to select the desired stitch.
Bobbin Winder - Used to wind the bobbin.
Tension Dial - Adjusts the tension of the stitches.
Take Up Lever/Thread Guide - The take up lever is located behind the
thread guide on this machine. The take up lever, moves the thread
up and down as it feeds through the sewing machine.
6. Reverse Lever - Allows for reverse stitching to lock stitches at beginning and end of seams.
7. Presser Foot Lifter - Lifts the presser foot up and down.
8. Needle - Needles come in various sizes, according to fabric weight.
9. Presser Foot - The presser foot holds the fabric in place against the feed
dogs. The feed dog is directly under the presser foot and has little “teeth”
that grab the fabric and move it through the sewing machine.
10.Throat Plate - The throat plate has various lines on it marking seam widths.
Align fabric with the desired seam width to keep the seams straight.
