If you have a longer distance where you need to sew in reverse, it’s best, instead, to needle down and pivot the fabric so you’re then sewing forward again on the fabric.
Most Singer machines have this button on the face of the sewing machine; it’s referred to as the “back-stitch” button. Refer to your manual for a diagram if you are unsure where the button is located on your machine, as some models may be different.
