Names of Principal Parts of Machine 306 46 APPLICATION OF SINGER AUTOMATIC TO CONSTRUCTION OF GARMENTS AND FURNISHINGS STRAIGHT STITCHING Straight stitching is accomplished with all of the discs when the bight is set at zero. Central needle position is used for straight stitching except in the unusual situation when it is desirable to alter the location of the needle in relationship to the center of the presser foot. The All-purpose Presser Foot and All-purpose Throat Plate are frequently used for both zig- zag stitching and straight stitching. The Straight Stitching Throat Plate and Straight Stitching Presser Foot are designed to accommodate delicate, soft fabrics, sheers, crepe weaves and all fabrics where the weave or finish causes the fabric to cling to the needle, either on its upward or downward stroke. The Straight Stitching Throat Plate is always used when free hand straight stitching work is done where the presser foot is removed and the fabric is held in hoops, as described on page 101. The Straight Stitching Presser Foot is often more convenient for following the edge of a lapped seam, the fold of a pleat or when placing an edgestitching on a yoke or collar. The narrow right toe affords an excel- lent view at the right of the needle for such work. ee eer eceeac ce eee
