The pens are used to touch up show-through bobbin thread. This means, however, that they should be used only in very small areas. Show through bobbin thread can be covered with just a touch of the tip of the pen. Marking up large areas can result in ink seepage through the bobbin fiber into the thread and finally into the garment. It is important to test the pens on a piece of scrap material to get the feel for the way they work. A little time testing can prevent discouraging results which could occur from improper handling.
How do I use the Peggy's Stitch Eraser?
SATIN STITCH: Turn the PSE3 on and point the "tooth area" of the blades against the grain of the satin stitch for a second and then move along gradually in one direction or move it back and forth one or two times until the backing shows up. Continue sliding across the stitched area. After that, flip the hooped garment to the front and pick the stitches out by scratching it with your finger nail or use the PSE3 (with motor turned OFF) to comb or rake stitches out of the embroidered area. NOTE: for very thin satin stitch or small letters, the edge of the blade should be laid flat against the embroidered area. DO NOT USE PRESSURE. Just glide over the area horizontally, vertically and circularly for at least 5 seconds or more. This specially designed blade configuration grinds away thread.
FILL STITCH: Push the PSE3 forward slowly and lightly against the top grain. Then stop. Cut away the fluffy part using the same motion the barbers do when cutting hair until you see the backing. Turn the hooped garment back to the front, turn the motor off and rake the PSE3 sideways to pull out thread from the front until most of the thread becomes fluffy. Turn the motor on, and cut loose thread away, again using the barber method. A few minutes practice is all it takes to be familiar with this wonderful tool which will pay for itself many times over.
