Whether you are new to using a sewing machine or a seasoned pro, labels can make you more efficient and increase the quality of your work. Continue below to learn which labels are most recommended, and how you can use them to enhance your sewing machine skills!
Sewing Machine Labeling Tips
Here’s a list of the parts you should label on your sewing machine, where they are located, and the purpose they serve in terms of sewing, stitching, and patchwork:
The last part to label is the hand wheel. You can spot this part at the top, far left side of the sewing machine. For newer models, this will look like a large knob, while older models have a metal wheel.
Length Stitch Knob
This knob is located at the top of the machine, on the right side. So think, “top-right” when looking at your machine. You can spot this knob because it should be marked with a number series, starting at one and ending at five.
Next, locate and label the reverse lever, also called the even switch. This part is can either be found at the front of the machine, to the left of the needle, or it can sometimes be on the left-side of the machine. It depends on the make and model sewing apparatus you have.
Stitch Width Knob
The next part to label is the stitch width knob. This is also marked by a series of numbers representing different stitch widths, just as the length stitch knob mentioned before. This knob is located right next to the stitch length knob, generally on the left side.
Tension Control Knob
The third, but equally important, part to label on your new sewing machine is the tension control knob. This should be located on the front-side of the machine next to or near the needle.
Thread Take-Up Lever
The fourth part to label is a thread take-up lever. This can also be found at the front of the machine, and to the left of the needle. Take note that this part is also somewhat inside the machine. It takes thread up and down, in the machine.
