  • Confidently serge elastic by letting this foot take care of all the work.
  • This foot provides even pressure on the elastic every time to prevent pulling and tugging on the needles.
  • The adjustable guide and tension dial allow you to serge elastic with a finished uniform stretch.
  • The guide holes provide control for projects requiring fishing line.

  1. Replace regular foot with special elastic foot .
  2. Slightly raise the elastic guide of the foot and insert elastic between  elastic guide and lower support bar then position the elastic under the foot as illustrated, until the edge of the elastic  reaches the feed teeth .( it may be necessary to looosen the tension adjuster screw to feed elastic through )'
  3. Sew the elastic for about one inch or so to ensure it is feeding properly .
  4. Place the fabric under the foot and sew elastic to fabric .
  5. check that the stitch formation is the unifromly  balanced and if necessary   , adjust the thread tension controls .
  6. Adjust the tension adjuster screw so that the desired finish can be obtained . 
    A ) Tighter tension of the adjuster screw ( turning screw clockwise ) gives more elasticity of the fabric after it is sewn .
    B) Looser tension of the tension adjuster screw ( turning screw counter -clockwise) gives less elasticity of the fabric .
