The fabric was held vertically by a baster plate in a manner similar to the Howe machine.
The length of each stitching operation depended upon the length of the baster plate, and the seams were necessarily straight.
When the end of the baster plate reached the position of the needle, the machine was stopped.
The cloth was removed from the baster plate, which was moved back to its original position.
