Have you ever wanted to stitch with a double
needle or twin needle? You can. We’re just going to go ahead and add a second spool of
thread to the top of the machine on the auxiliary thread stand that I’ve added, or thread spool
holder. I’m going to take my current needle out, and it fits right in, just like a regular
needle. Now, set the machine for a straight stitch. That way, when you start sewing, you’re
not left on like a decorative stitch that’s too wide, and the needle will go off the edge
of the fabric, or go off the edge of the foot and break the needle. You really are just going to thread the second
thread right on top of the first thread. Make sure it gets down in the tension disk and
in all the normal guides. Just when you get down to the needle, you’re going to put 1
in 1 needle, and 1 in the other. It doesn’t matter which one you actually choose to thread
first. If you lower down the presser foot that’s always a little bit easier. We’re going to show you that a double needle
can be used for straight stitching. It can be used to duplicate that hem you see on a
lot of t=shirts or sweatshirts. You can free motion quilt with a double needle. But first
off, as you stitch, make sure that as you stitch everything stitches smoothly, maybe
a few turns by hand and a little slower speed until you’re confident everything is working
well. This is fun. I’ve got 2 different colors in the machine right now. We have a green
and pink, so that’s what it’s going to look like. Now if I do pick a decorative stitch or a
zigzag, you first want to check the package. For example, this package is 2.5 mm. This
machine will stitch up to 7 mm. What I need to do is make sure that I reduce the stitch
width down to 4.5 mm wide or less, 4.5, and then that way I know that I’m not going to
overstep my boundaries and accidentally break my needle. Now, I’ll just use the zigzag,
because I know that it’s a little bit narrower. It doesn’t come up at the full stitch width,
and it actually looks fun. But once again, if you do pick a decorative stitch, you will
want to adjust for that setting. So there you go. See how fun that is? Let’s
try one. Let’s do the feather stitch. I think the feather stitch doesn’t stitch really wide.
We’ll just narrow it down just a little bit here. Once again, I’ll hand turn the first
few stitches so I can see the needle doesn’t go off the edge of the foot, but now we have
a double row of feather stitches coming down. Now, double needles come in different sizes,
so as you change from a narrower one to a little bit wider one, this will change the
final look of the decorative stitch. Love it. It almost looks a little Christmasy. Have
some fun with it. Look, we’ve almost doubled our decorative stitch options here, so instead
of 20, you now have 40 different ways to stitch a stitch.
