Before you start w[radlnq the bobhn

remember that you need two threads to sew a seam: an upper and a lower thread. These two threads are locked together In the middle of the fabric to form i lock stitch, The seam produced in this way is illustrated below

If

your seam doesnt look like the illustration. turn to page 19.

To wind the bobbin, turn the machine on by pushing button C (page 2). Then raise the pressei bar lifter on the hack of the machine to disengage the sewing mechanism (see iii helcw)

Before you start sewing on your new machine


try sewing a piece of scrap material. Place

the fabric under the sewing foot. Flick presser bar lifter 2 (see ill,) to its lowest position and the sewing foot is lowered onto the fabric,

To prepare your machine for sewing


chock the foilowing items even after you have bocome well acquainted with your Pfaff.
Touch on-off button 1 to turn machine

on.
Presser bar lifter 2 must be at Its lowest position in order to ensure that the sewing foot is down. Reverse-feed contro! 3 must be in its hod zontal position and must show the forward-reverse sewing symbol on its top surface. For straight and zigzag sewing, the de corative and functional-stitch mechanism must he disengaged. To make sure it is, push button 4 on the top cover of your machine. The knob of Ultra-Matic stitch selector S must be positioned horizontally with the located at buttonhole symbol left. the Pattern length dial 6, which you need for decorative stitching, must be turned to this symbol:

The Ultra-Mafia stftch seector

Note: The needle must never be in the mate del when you turn the Ultra-Matic stitch selector,

The Ultra-Matic stitch selector sets your ma chine for straight. and zigzag stitching.

The different stitch ranges are marked by numbers. For instance, the range from 0 to 4 comprises straight stitches of different lengths. Turn the outer ring of the stitch selector until the symbol of the stitch desired is opposite the white mark, ln the illustration on the left, the stitch selector is set for sewing straight stitches about 2 mm long (about 12 stitches per inch),

Start by making a sewing test.. Press the foot control pedal, and watch your machine sew a straightstitch seam.

Then lot your Pfaff run at diffe rent speeds. The harder you press the foot control pedal, the faster your machine will run.

Now try a zigzag stitch, Zigzag stitches are shown on the UitraMatic stitch selector In the stitch ranges marked 5, 6, 7, 8 and 9. The zigzag stitch desired is dialed just as easily as a straight stitch,

The setting of the stitch selector is indicated for every sewing operation discussed, This simplifies the operation of your machine, In the illustration on this page the stitch selector is shown set for a medium zigzag stitch in stitch range 8. 13

Two pieces of fabric wUl match pertectly, no matter how iong the seam
may be.
Your Pfaff is the only home sewing machine in the world featuring a Matchmaker sewing toot.

This toot is used tor sewing long seams and

for perfectly matching plaids, striped and patterned fabrics. The Matchmaker sewing toot is also used for sewing over thick cross seams

To engage the Matchmaker sewnig toot simply push it down in the slot ot the raised
sewing foot until it snaps into place (see arrow in illustraOon at bottom lutt.

To disengage this loot, push it down ,liqhiIy, then pull it up out of the 51.0 fl tue sewinj
toot

Other feet which can be used with the Match maker sewing foot include the hemmer toot, blindstitch foot and felling foot.

No matter how carefully you match the squares or other patterns, the result will be similar to that shown in trio top illustration (below) when you sow without the Match maker sewing foot.

When you join two pieces of checked material with th aid of the Matchmaker sewing foot. the squares nr stripes will match exactly. (See f page 1 ill at bottom 0

Even the thickest cross seams are no obstacle.

This is another advantage of your Pfaff, Art

electronic control which operates behind the scenes comes to your assistance whenever you have to sew over thick seams or several layers of fabric. Just relieve the pressure on and the electronic control the foot control instantty reduces the speed of your machine to stow stitchby-stitch sewing for stitching through the thickest spots in the material.

Changing the needle or sewing foot is easy.


Vanous sewing operations require different size needles or special needles. A detailed Needle and Thread Chart is shown on page 61.

To change the needle, lower the presser bar


lifter and hick it to position D (see page 15) This causes the Stopmatic mechanism to bring the needle to the correct position for changing.

Changing the sewing foot is Just CS simple. The acctssory box of your macnine contains several special sewing feet (hemmer foot, buttonhole foot, etc ) which are used for venous sewing operations. Which sewing toot to use for a secrfrc ewrrtg job is discussed on page 21 and the following pages.

To change the sewIng foot, push the presser bar lifter to ifs highest position. Loosen screw B until the sewing foot can be removed, tilt
rug it sideways or backwards. The new sewing
tnot is attached in me reverse order. Tighten

Loosen screw N (see ill. below) and pull the old needle out of the needle holder Insert a new needle and push it up as far as it will go, making sure the flat side of its shank tacos toward the back. Now tighten the needle

Use System 130 needles only.

Perfect seams through property balanced tensions

I
V

The thread tensions are set correctly when the machine leaves our factory. This means that they normally need not be adjusted. Even so, you may not be satisfied with the appearance of the seam. In this case, check to see whether the upper or lower tension needs adjusting Then regulate the tensions as follows: The upper tension is located under the top cover of your machine, The tension dial is provided with numbers 0 to 10. The higher the number, the tighter the tension, The normal tension setting s marked by a black line on the scale.

The lower tension is regulated by turning the small screw on the bobbin case. Turn this screw to the right (with your thumb rather than your finger nail) for a tighter tension, or to the left for a looser tension. Right (R) and left (L) are indicated by arrows, If you can pull the thread from the bobbin easily against little resistance, the bobbin thread tension is just right. You need not change the lower tension if you always use the same size thread on the bobbin and in the needle,
