For any sewing machine:
- Keep your eye on the needle while sewing.
- Keep your fingers away from all moving parts. Do not touch handwheel, thread takeup levers, needles etc.
- Do not let anything obstruct the moving parts: foot pedals, levers, needles, etc.
- Use care when pushing or pulling fabric when sewing so you do not deflect the needle and cause it to break. Broken needles fly unpredictably and may travel long distances.
- Remove pins before the machine sews over them. They blunt or dull the needle and can causing timing problems.
- Make sure the needle isn't moving, is at it's highest point, and the take-up lever is up before you remove fabric to avoid needle deflection.
- Avoid loose clothing or long sleeves that might get caught in the work.
- If a needle becomes bent or breaks, report it.
- Turn off the power switch when:
- Operation is complete
- Replacing or removing the needle or presser foot
- Leaving the machine unattended

Tips & Tricks
Taken from user recommendation
- Get a sturdy table and put something under the machine to minimize vibration (cork, rubber matting, or some such thing).
- Try different brands of embroidery thread on your machine until you find out what works best for you, your machine, and the design that you're using.
- Buy good needles and change them out frequently. Titanium plating should be as smooth as glass, if it's rough - it's not a good needle. You want the finish on an embroidery needle to be really slick, to reduce heat build up while it's embroidering.
- Run a sample of the design on felt or fabric & stabilizer to see how it turns out on real fabric - "bouncing" can mean that the outline doesn't match the fill and you want to make sure that there is no "bouncing around" while it's stitching. You also want to check the thread colors and if you have a good match on the weight of the stabilizer - if the thing puckers up, it needs the tension relaxed or a heavier weight of stabilizer.
