Make sure the correct needle is installed on the machine. Domestic needles will have one flat and one rounded side on the shaft. Make sure the flat side of the needle is on the back and the groove on the needle also being to the back.
You might also want to make sure the tip of the needle is not broken.
Other than that, your machine could be out of timing.

SOURCE: what is a Narrow double hem with hand slip

You can find some instructions on a narrow double hem at http://www.sewjanetmoville.co.uk/content/learning/viewArticle.asp?lcArticleCategoryID=0&lcArticleID=3&pgid=learningCentre. Instead of machine sewing it, use a hand slip stitch as seen here: http://www.hutchal.clara.net/curtains/sewguide.htm.

You can find more info on these techniques at http://www.repair-home.com/how_to_sew_repairs.html

Hope this helps! Let me know if you need more info.

SOURCE: Placing material for rolled hem

Usually what is done as far as I do it, is to sew a straight stitch at 45 degrees to the corner that you are going to hem and use the threads to guide the material into the hemmer foot. Once the presser foot is lowered you hold onto these threads to guide the material in a straight line while at the same time holding your fabric slightly elevated in your right hand so that you allow the hemmer to be just full at all times. After you complete your hem remove your 45 degree helper threads. Your fabric must also be cut very straight or you will not get good results with the hemmer. This foot takes practice to master...once you know how to use it, you will never look back! There are other methods to using this foot that other people prefer, but for me this one works the best.

SOURCE: Need to know how to set the tension to sew hems on

Re-thread the machine and make sure that the needle is in properly. The tension would not cause the thread to break.



If it is not working, what is the machine doing? Try re-threading the machine again, check the needle to make sure that it is in correctly. There are no set numbers for tension- it is a feel, push, pull. If you could e-mail me back with a better description of what the machine is doing or not doing,

Not stitching. Can timing be adjusted


If you had no major jam your timing will be fine. My guess is that you have a problem with the needle positioning and/or adjustment of the machine itself. Like, check that thread is not knotted and looped correctly. Do some basic checks (as per manual) and don't panic.

I've got an Elna 634 overlocker, and want to turn


Just trim the fabric to the desired hem length plus one inch, then overlock around this raw edge with thread close colour match to the fabric.

You then have the choice of either stitching around with a stretch stitch on your sewing machine, or hand sewing.

Being lycra shouldn't change how you hem them unless the trouser leg is extremely close fitting and the hem seam is going to be under tension.

My first choice would be using a twin needle in straight stitch from top side but this finish can pop/break if the hem is under tension. But perfect for most knit hems.

If you hand sew then you can turn up hem allowance and put a length of fusible hemming web inside the hem allowance and press it to hold. Then do a back stitch hand sew around to hold hem in place.

If you sew with the regular sewing machine, then use either the stretch stitch or a very small zig zag, and a ball point or stretch needle.

On ready to wear you would see a coverstitch hem but your overlocker doens't have this stitch.

Do I need to oil my singer pioneer II machine


All sewing machines need regular maintenance and this includes using sewing machine oil (supplied with all Singer machines when new) where indicated by the user manual.

I can't supply you with a link though as it's not clear which model you have. Simplicity and Singer are different brands and you seem to have mistakenly mixed them up.

The easiest way to get your threads adjusted and learn which thread does what is to thread the machine with 4 different colors. Set your tension dials at 4,3,2,1 from left to right. This is the starting point. Sew on a test strip and look at the threads. You can then adjust the correct tension dial according to the thread color. This is a great way to get the machine set back to correct tensions as well as a learning tool to figure out what each thread looks like so you can adjust later when using all one color.
