There’s two ways to baste on this machine.
You can go ahead and choose your fabric. We’re going to baste two pieces of fabric with a
piece of batting in between. We’ll go ahead and call that a woven, heavy fabric, in technique
number four, baste. It’s going to choose stitch number 17. The
tension has been reduced, and the stitch length increased to six. It’s going to really put
a very quick stitching line down your fabric. Let’s go ahead and cut this real quick. You’re going to notice that, because of
the stitching and the loose tension, it would be very easy to pull out. If I just give this
a little tug, see, we can pull that right on out, even with all those stitches placed. Another stitch is stitch number 18. This is
going to be done with the feed dogs down. You’ll notice, your screen just has one
little dot on it. What is going to do is, you’re going to go ahead and stitch. It’s
going to take two stitches, and then pop the foot up a little bit. Slide forward to where you need it to be.
Two stitches, and it stops. Then, slide forward. You just drag the thread as you baste around
the project. This is really a quick way, if you ever pin-baste, but don’t want to have
to do all that, you could just quick go around, two stitches, and then it lifts. That way,
you can just get that to be all where you want it to be. Cut the thread at the end, and then you can
see, you’ve got little tic-tacs where you need it to hold your fabric together.
