Fabricator® Use Video
This is the second half of the Fabricator® Assembly & Use video series. If you have not set up and assembled your Fabricator Sewing Machine yet, please refer to "Fabricator Setup & Assembly Video" (#300300XHT) for how to put the table together, install the motor, and get the machine ready for sewing. In this video, we will go over the basic functions of the sewing machine, including how to thread and time the machine, and how to get started sewing with your new Fabricator.
If you are new to sewing or just simply not familiar with industrial sewing machines, we suggest you watch this quick tutorial video to get to know your new Fabricator Sewing Machine. This is a super useful video that you will come back to again and again when you need a refresher on using your Fabricator. The video covers various basic sewing machine "getting ready to sew" steps including how to correctly thread the machine. You'll also learn how to wind bobbins. Did you know you can wind bobbins as you sew? This is a great feature of the machine so you don't have to stop your project in order to wind bobbins.
We'll show you how to thread the machine. Next, we'll do a little demo sewing, and then show you how to make tension adjustments. You always want to make sure your tension is set up properly prior to starting a project. Very importantly, we show you how to make sure your machine's timing is set up correctly and how to easily make any necessary adjustments. Also covered in the video are thread and needle combinations, how to properly install your needle, how to sew lighter weight home fabrics, and some basic maintenance and lubrication.
Watch the video below to learn how to use your new machine. Once you feel comfortable with your Fabricator, feel free to start your first project. We know you're going to love your new industrial, straight stitch Fabricator and all the amazing things you can make with it. We'd love to see what you're sewing.
