Sewing Reinforcement Stitches

There are two ways to reinforce your stitching with The Machine. The most common, used on most machines, is the reverse stitch. However, The Machine also allows for the reinforcement stitch, which is essentially the machine picking up a single stitch at the exact same location you stop the sewing.

The reverse stitch can be programmed in to the multi-function foot controller. The reinforcement stitch is available for some of the stitches available on the machine. Of special note: if the green light next to the reinforcement stitch button is lit while the machine is sewing a motif, it will automatically turn off when the sewing is stopped. This means you have the option to stop the sewing mid-stitch or work through the rest of the design before hitting the reinforcement stitch button (or heel switch, or side pedal, depending on programming). So stitch to the end of your seam, then pick your reinforcement.
