Here's how to split the Seam Guide for machines
with Top Loading Bobbins

Cut the Seam Guide right where the cover opens, so you don't have to remove it just to load a new bobbin. See details below.

** Make sure the     cover is clean **

Because the cover is more frequently handled, the Seam Guide will stick better if you clean the surface.   


1) Mark where the cover plate opens.

2) Cut the Seam Guide in half.

3) Insert the Guide in the Setter and stick it on the machine.

* Clean the surface of the cover.

4) Remove the Setter.

5) Ready to sew.
