I am trying to teach myself to sew.... what is a serge stitch an how do I set my brother sewing machine to do it?


A serger (overlocker) is not a sewing machine. If you look at the inside seams of a purchased t-shirt, you will usually find a serge stitch that was created using a serger (overlocker). A serger/overlocker usually uses 3 or 4 threads to create that stitch. It also trims the fabric at the same time it finishes the fabric edge. The serge stitch is a chain stitch that, if you pull a particular thread, the entire stitch will come undone.

Your sewing machine is not able to create that same stitch. Your sewing machine may have what is called an "overlock" stitch, but it will use only 2 threads (the top and bobbin) to create that stitch. You would have to consult your owner's manual to see if it can make an overlock stitch.

Help plse, after threading it dont make the overlocking stitches. New machine, help with right way to thread machine and the smaller detail of threading.


Your machine is either not threaded correctly, or the individual threads have not been threaded in order. Be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the machine. You must follow the instructions exactly or the machine will most likely never work properly. Can you at least get a training class on your machine? A class is indispensable, especially when it comes to using a serger.

Even if it is not the same model, these instructions may be helpful.

My Brother LS 2160 is threaded but not stitching


Hi there Kathryn... when you load/thread the top cotton through the machine.... and then through the eye of the needle.... do you also load the bobbin case... or is it already in there and loaded as per instructions... ? What I normally do... is load up the bottom and top threads first.. making sure to put the top thread through the needle and make the thread end go through and behind the 'foot'... when placing on fabric to try... I make sure to load the fabric... with the top thread's tail going out through the presser foot and behind your foot.. sometimes.. if its the thread (some machines don't like certain threads)... I will manually (wind the right hand wheel) so that the machine does a few stitches.. before I use my foot pedal!.. I have both a serger/overlocker... and a Brother 8500 (sewing/embroidery machine).. I have been sewing for over years now...
You will need to change your needle... when you've used it for more than 6-7 hours continuously.. OR you notice that the stitches are not as they should be... in your fabric...

I'm not sure how to thread my machine, I lost my manual elna lock pro 5Dc


I would suggest that you buy a new manual for this as your overlocker has 5 threads that need to be threaded up correctly to form a stitch and there are several different stitches that can be made with this model such as a rolled hem, chain stitch, three thread overlock, four thread overlock and safety stitch with three thread overlock, lots to learn.

You can buy a manual here for $USD14.99: http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/instruction-manual-elna-pro5dc.aspx
or this website has a copy for $USD10.
http://www.sewusa.com/Sewing_Machine_Manuals/Elna_Manuals/Pro_4DC_DE_Instruction_Manual.htm

Always well worth buying the manual and saving a lot of frustration trying to guess how things work and it adds value if you are going to sell the item.

You can get some general overlocker threading tips from http://sewing.about.com/od/sergersoverlock/ss/serger.htm which may help you too.

It will not do an overlock it will cut the fabric nothing else I followed the directions on how to thread it but the only thing it will do is cut the fabric what am i doing wrong


for all Sewing machines to stitch the cloth, Top needles and bottom hemming needles timing should be configured. Please let us know the whether it is double needle / single needle overlock machine. and model number of the Machine.So that i can guide much better.

Thread wont overlock


When the thread breaks too often, try these, that goes for all sewing machines
1. Replace the needles,
2. Loosen slightly the tension of the needle threads.
3. The top threads are to thin,
4.The sewing (rotary) hook or looper, has burs,
5. Wrong threading
