Following on from MC6700P Part 1 published on 2nd February:
As a professional sewer and educator I love using the Memory Craft 6700P with its combination of power, performance and endurance that will meet all your needs. Whether you’re an amateur seamstress, an experienced quilter, do mending & repairs, or need a machine in your clothing store? the MC6700P will never let you down.
To see its power, there is not much better than sewing on denim fabric. I have a skirt that is too long that I need to shorten. I do not want to lose the original hemline so I folded the desired measurement over the seam and stitched through the three thicknesses with decorative stitches built into the machine. I choose my decorative stitches from the machine pattern mode 2. There are four modes in the machine memory each having different stitch patterns available.
The AcuFeed Flex dual-feed foot is perfect for sewing through the three layers of denim. For better visibility to see and stitch the work, I change the ordinary sole plate AD for an optional open-toe UD sole plate.
I sewed at full speed to check the quality of the stitches over the seams of this thick fabric. The quality of the stitches were amazing!
While embellishing my skirt with decorative stitches, I really appreciated several very practical features such as:
- The new needle threader built into the side cover … it never misses the eye of the needle.
- The double support for spools or cones of thread … the flow is vertical and much superior.
- The easy threading path … quick, easy an effective.
- Reversible stitch chart … side 1, mode 1 & 2 / side 2, mode 3 & 4
- The notepad on side 2: very convenient to insert a memo or pattern instructions etc
- The presser foot lever: it is wide and solid and stays in the elevated position without needing to be held.
And here is the finished work. The skirt has been customized easily to my taste and style with the Memory Craft 6700P and its unique features. I’m satisfied!
