Know Your Needle Plate

Elna patented needle plates are designed with etched guides to simplify your sewing. Educator Nancy Fiedler provided this helpful Sewing Basics article to show you how to use the etched markings on your needle plate.

Nancy goes over the starting needle position; using 5/8″ and 1/4″ seam allowances; diagonal placement lines and the other seam allowances featured on your needle plate. The arrows placed on the needle plate images in the article will guide you into sewing the perfect seams.
