I am trying to replace monofilm panels in a windsurfing sail, using a Singer 457 zig zag sewing machine. I cannot create a good zig zag seam when the monofilm is sandwiched between two canvas layers.

Joe, you might try a larger needle than you're using. You might also want to try a larger leather needle. You machine should take needles up to a size 18.

It sounds like the needle you're using is having a problem picking up the bobbin thread, and that might solve it.

My jones sewing machine wont stitch straight just zig zag tried moving parts

Probably the zig-zag mechanism has seized from lack of oil/cleaning. Pick up fresh, good quality sewing machine oil or Tri-Flow Synthetic Lube and apply a couple drops every place where metal rubs against metal (including the zig-zag mechanism). Do NOT oil any rubber or leather parts (belts)!!!

Then apply heat from a handheld hairdryer. Repeat until it loosens.

Machine not picking up a zig zag stitch

it's possible that the cam that makes the zigzag stitch could be worn or damaged, it would probably be a good idea to have the machine checked.

Singer stylist 7258, will only pick up bobbin on one side when doing zigzag stitch

try using a washable stablizer or interfacing.
if that doesn't help then it's possible that a gear or cam may be worn enough to cause the machine zig zag not to work properly

Zig Zag Stitch not working

THis problem occurred as I was sewing on Neoprene. I was using Gutterman all-purpose thread and a size 80 needle. Tried switching to a size 70, then to size 90. Still unable to zig zag. After inserting a test sample of cotton, the zig zag worked perfectly, so I knew it was not a mecahnical problem. I switched needles again. This time to size 90 for stretch fabric. Voila! Problem solved.
