The operator selects any programmed function by pressing numbers on the keypad (the stitch count and cut function are clearly visible on an LCD readout). Each sequence may be inspected or altered by following the program sequence; for example, program one, cut leading and trailing edge with automatic binding saver: material is inserted into a binder and depressing the sew treadle initiates sewing. A reflective eye senses the leading edge and the binding is cut after a preset number of stitches without stopping. Sewing continues until the trailing edge is sensed and after counting the preset number of stitches the binding is cut and sewing is automatically stopped to prevent material waste. Any number of cut and trim values may be entered and retained for different styles or sizes.
