Question about White Sewing Fashionaire Sewing 2380 Mechanical Sewing Machine

1 Answer

I recently received 2 White sewing machines: a #2380 and a #1780 Quilter's Star. With the #2380, I can't get it to sew a large(long) straight stitch, even though the stitch length is set clear to #4. At the #4 setting, it sews a stitch about the size of a 2-2 1/2. When I move the stitch length lever up higher, the stitches get even shorter. On the #1780, I cannot find the right kind of bobbin to match the kind that came with the machine. Is there a number or style for the plastic bobbin? I have looked at JoAnn's and there aren't any that match. Also, can both machines use the Schmetz needles? If not what kind should I buy and where can I get them? Thank you, Jan Sink

Re the bobbins it is the depth that sounts and some of the plastic bobbins are the same as the metal ones(I used to sell sewing machines)so as long as they are same depth when put side by side and same circumferance then another type will be fine. Ive only found 2 different depths in the plastic ones so I dont know which you have. Not sure what has happened with your stitch lentgh. Check the stitch selector is properly on a straight stitch and that the other stitches are correct. A s/mach technician may be able to alter it for you but yo can do no more on that.

My sewing machine (Singer Confidence Quilter) skips stitches when I use the zig zag stitch. I regularly clean and oil my machine. I have changed needles, changed thread etc. , every thing the manual says...

Try straight stitching on the left side and then on the right side of the foot. If it doesn't give a stitch on the left it is a sure sign that it needs to be timed.
