First: In the back of the owner's manual is a chart to show what stitch each cam will make.
Second: The cam is chosen by the number stamped on it which corresponds to the stitch you would like.
Third: The cam door is opened, the cam placed on the shaft, and the door is closed.
Fourth: Set the stitch width and length to the desired settings.
Fifth: Sew a fabulous fifties style decorative stitch.
|16 cams to choose from|
|Straigt, Zig-Zag, and Decorative|
The decorative stitches shown are definitely reminiscent of the fifties. I think a shirt with the sleeves, collar, and pocket finished with one of these stitched would give it an instant retro look.
Just like vintage cars, vintage sewing machines take you back in time. I think my Brother is a great machine. But the weight, the feel, the sounds, and the stitches of the Kenmore add a whole different and enjoyable experience to sewing. Just like my 1958 Lincoln, it drives different from my newer car, but I won't say I like it any more or less, it provides a different experience.
Now I see why a person can't stop with just one sewing machine. Especially a vintage one. When I get Grandma's Singer running, that will be another wonderful experience.
Hope you have enjoyed this as much as I have.
