Instructions for use:

  1. When confronted with a bird nest scenario where your hooped fabric is firmly attached to the needle plate, carefully lift the hooped fabric to expose the entangled thread mass, often referred to as a "bird nest," nestled within the needle plate hold.

  2. Grasping the handle of the stitch release tool, seamlessly slide the blade along the needle plate, ensuring its flat surface comes into direct contact with the tangled thread. Glide the blade gently back and forth until the thread is precisely severed, effectively freeing the hoop.

  3. Depending on your particular machine, the shepherd's hook can prove indispensable. Slide the hook beneath the needle plate cover, skillfully positioning its tip around the entwined thread. Employ a gentle pulling motion until the thread is liberated from its captive state.

  4. Employ the included bent-tip tweezers to extract any remaining visible threads that may have become ensnared in the rotary hook area. In severe bird nest situations, you may need to remove the needle plate cover for enhanced accessibility.
