This is a sharp – ended piece of metal that punctures the fabric allowing us to sew. This changes the direction of the stitch allowing you to sew the opposite way and also stops your threads from coming undone. This turns on a light at the side of the machine, reducing the strain on your eyes. These are the small teeth under the pressure foot that move the fabric along. This takes up the thread from the reel to get ready for the next stitch. This is where you rest and manipulate the fabric when you are machining it. You unscrew this component to replace the needle with a new one. This is where you attach the thread to the machine so that it doesn't slip. This holds the fabric in place when stitching so that it moves evenly and smoothly. Allows you more control over the needle to do very precise stitching. This allows you to switch between different types of stitches.
