My machine has a flat bobbin case into which you rest the plastic bobbins and I have now bought a separate "speciality bobbin case" so I can change the tension screw and use thicker threads for cable stitch. Before getting the speciality bobbin case, I just by-passed the bobbin tension for whip stitch which seemed to work but I do wonder if sample (Image 3.4 m) has come out correctly.
I have a function button (+/-) on a touch pad rather than a control knob which is not so easy to alter but after some practice it did get easier however I found it important to complete the sequence of a pattern before changing length/width.
