Try turning all your tension settings to 0, then set them again!

Anybody know what settings are needed for 'the freehand/darning' I am not sure that is what it is called, but I want to freehand our names on our Christmas stockings!

Just I need help to know how to stich stretchable material like licra or similar maerial...


Asha Hello,

ok I have looked at a photo of your machine, it looks like it may have the stretch stitch. It is designated on the sewing machine per the instructions in the manual. The stitch is similar to a zigzag with a flat side to it. Check with Youtube for "stretch stitches lycra spandex". that may get you a video to watch.
Cheers,

Does my kenmore sewing machine Model number 5151 do zig zag stitch?


I was able to find this photo on the internet. If your machine looks something like this

then it most likely has zig-zag. There are a lot of dials and levers on this machine. Most straight stitch machines have only one or two. One dial/lever with numbers from 0-4 or 5 would be the stitch length. The other dial/lever with numbers from 0-4 or 5 would be stitch width, which would make a zig-zag stitch.

Top thread keeps coming out of needle. How do I thread top thread?


Be sure to pull at least 4 to 6 inches of thread through the needle's eye before beginning to sew. Pull the bobbin thread up to the top of the fabric BEFORE beginning to sew.

How and Why to Bring up the Bobbin Thread (This works for regular everyday straight stitching too not just design stitches.)

Then, BEFORE taking the first stitch, hold both thread tails with the left hand and then slowly begin stitching. After a couple of stitches, let go of the thread tails and continue to sew.

If you need instructions on how to thread your machine, search the internet for a manual:

Make + Model + the word "Manual"

or look for videos on YouTube to help with the threading process.

My Kenmore Mini Ultra sewing machine won't sew the button stitch. I have followed the instructions on the manual but still the thread does not get sewn onto the fabric. Simple straight stitches are ok


it's possible that there could be a problem with the gear or cam that does the button hole stitch

try a different needle--one for the fabric being sewed
try a different bobbin --make sure the bobbin is not warped or damaged
try different thread-- use EVERY thread guide

make sure the bobbin is wound correctly--inserted correctly in to the bobbin case--and turned the right way.

Adjust the stitches on my 385.19233 what the instruction manuel say is not working


Is this a stitch selection issue? A stitch width or stitch length issue? What stitch are you attempting to use, and on what fabric?

How do you use the pattern stitching module in singer model 2732. I have the Manuel but still don't understand how it works. I have followed instructions and nothing happens. I must be doing something...


Have you installed the stitch selector pattern module for the patterns you want, seated it properly as outlined on page 52 of the instruction book following all 7 steps? (Page 54 identifies the knobs and lever's that need to be moved to successfully install the pattern module)

If that is done correctly, then selecting a stitch is done with the stitch selector lever being moved under the letter corresponding to the stitch you are trying to select. (Shown beginning page 55) You also need to move the stitch length knob as indicated.

You will need to be sure you are following the instructions very carefully as there are a number of settings that need to be made to ensure you get the stitch you are trying to achieve.

I hope this helps you.

I want to do a button hole on my singer sewing machine model 7422 i've got the manual and i've followed what it say's but it only beeps when i pressed the pedal to start sewing i followed the instruction...


I do not have a fancy Brother machine. From what I understand, you just need to do a zig-zag stitch around the "rectangle" that will become the button hole.
You could forego whatever instructions they provide and just set your stitch width as appropriate and then move the stitch type to a thin (close together stitching) zig-zag, just shy of "satin stitch" (which is just sewing back and forth all in the same place, and therefore--useful for embroidery).
Sometimes easy does it can be the ONLY way to get things done. :) Sorry I don't know more about your specific issue but maybe the old school way will help.
