Question about Sewing Machines
In addition to the bite adjustment knob, you might try changing the needle. Once you change to a sharp needle, you may find the bite adjustment can be reduced.

There should be a knob on the right front of your machine which can adjust the depth of the stitch. Usually it gets deeper when you turn it to the left nut that's not that important. Turn the knob a couple of numbers and see if it gets deeper or shallower.If it gets deeper, turn the knob a couple more numbers and check it again.If it gets shallower, you are turning it the wrong way. Turn it back and start over. Keep doing this until it looks the way you want it to.
There is also another knob or lever that says 2:1 and 1:1
2:1 will skip the fabric every other stitch which is great for thinner fabrics. 1:1 catches every time.
Don't be afraid of this machine. It's just a little different and you won't kill it with a simple mistake.
