SOURCE: machine jammed my lock 644D

Undo the needle/s at the holder screw in needle arm and gently manouver any fabric out of the way ... enough to access the screw holding the needleplate on.....very gently try to loosen & remove the needle, needleplate and fabric in one bunch.........cut threads a few inches from the jam and try to ease the whole jam away from the needles and looper, you can then sort that mess out later........

During all these processes, Do Not pull or force anything as you may bend something or throw the timing out (if it is not already out)

Once all is clear, replace only the R needle at this stage and very slowly rotate the handwheel towards you and watch the motion carefully to ensure that there are no drastic collisions of loopers and needle.

If all appears well, re-thread and do a sample test.

If things are not so rosy, you may contact me via the "contact us" page at www.bargainbox.com.au and I shall see what can be done for you to reset the timing and clearances.......if you feel up to the challenge.

SOURCE: sewing with walking foot

Take the needle out and run the machine for a while with the walking foot fitted. Refit the needle and try again but only turn the machine over by hand to see if the problem has cleared. If no luck it sounds like the walking foot timing needs adjusting.

SOURCE: Using twin needle with Janome dc3050

you can just use the straight stitch.If you want to use a fancy stitch you have to be careful that the throw, as I call it is not too wide as you could break the needles and put the timing out. Also use a longer stitch than normal.Also use the stretch twin needle.

Metal blind foot hem 6217c


The 6217C doesn't have a blind hem foot. You need the General Purpose (low-shank) foot, the General Purpose Needle Plate and the blind hem guide (part number 381213). The guide gets secured by the screw that holds the presser foot shank. This site, http://cart.jennys-sewing-studio.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=473 , has the blind hem guide available. This metal foot might fit your machine: http://cart.jennys-sewing-studio.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=530_73_101_164_168&products_id=463 .

I hope this helps.

I cant get my 1034d to sew blind hem stitch


It is not a special stitch, just a three thread overlocked seam with left needle but you do it with the blind hem foot and fold your fabric into a "z" shape, wrong side upwards and raw edge at the bottom to be trimmed by the blade as you seam. The folded edge is run against the "blade" of your blind hem foot to ensure even "bite" of the upper fold by the needle while the loopers form the seam around your raw edge below. Then when you finish and press the z fold open, you obviously want a little as possible of the needle stitch to show on the right side of the hemline. So you need to practice and adjust the position of the blind hem guide to ensure you are getting the needle to stitch just onto the folded edge.
I have only ever done it on knit fabric, as it does show and not very successful on a curved hem edge, straight edge is fine. You only want to catch a minimal amount of the fabric with the needle, lengthen the stitch length to 3 so there is less stitches per inch as it will show on the right side.

There is a tutorial here on youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aDJbFNZrCUI

How do you do a blind stitch on a Viking Fresia 415? What foot do I use?


tally_girl_1.jpg
You need a foot like this one so you can guide the folded edge of the fabric hem along against the white plastic foot. This is a generic style snap on blind hem foot, your machine should have one in the accessories that looks like this if your machine has a blind hem stitch included in its functions.

You fold the fabric into a upside down Z shape and run the top folded edge along the white guide with the fabric under the foot, hard to explain but once youve done it once, it makes sense.

You need to select the stitch on your machine that looks like 3 small zigzags, then one bigger one, or 3 straight stitches, then one zig zag to the side. This is the blind hemming stitch. You'll possibly also have a blind hemming foot to use, which helps with guiding the fabric fold into the machine and keeping it even. But if not, you should be able to buy one from your Huskqvarna dealer or a generic one from www.sewingpartsonline.com may well fit.

You'd be best served by visiting http://sewing.about.com/od/techniques/ss/machineblindsti.htm for photos and intructions if you've never done blind hem stitching before.

Blind hemming works best when hemming straight edges of fabric such as a ruffle on a full skirt - if there is any curve in the seam, it gets much harder and the result won't look so good. In essence, you press the fabric hem up, then fold the hem edge back under so you have a "S' shape, then sew along the single layer with the folded edge sitting against the foot guide. Then when the machine takes the 4th wide stitch, the needle swings to the left and catches a small stitch into the upper folded layer, then back onto the hem. The trick is adjusting the stitch so that the wide stitch doesn't show much on the right side of the garment

Which food sood i use to make an invisible hem


blind hem foot is good if you want to machine stitch a hem but not have a seam showing. it will have an adjustable piece you can move left or right with a screw. but blind hemming works best on straight grain and not on a curve like a skirt hem unless its a knit fabric that gives. to make a blind hem press the hem allowance up then turn the main garment piece back to form a Z shape. you then stitch along the hem side with your blind hem foot guidr running along the top fold and use the blind hem stitch which looks like three little zigzags then one big zig far to the left onto your folded piece taking a little 'bite' - this stitch shows on the right side when you press the top of the Z back flat. so you need to adjust the foot position and how wide the needle swings to minimise this stitch showing. hope this makes sense and helps you with your sewing.

I've just got janome 634d serger, how can i make the bottom of a T-shirt ? Thank you so much


If you want the bottom of the T to look like RTW with the double row of stitching, you cannot do this on a serger.

You can achieve the effect by using a twin needle, two spools of thread, bobbin and a straight stitch.

Make sure the double/twin needle will pass through the presser foot and opening in the needle plate below the presser foot.

Practice on a double layer of a scrap of the T shirt material as the tension may need to be slightly looser than the normal setting.

Hemming stretch fabrics


You can use a twin needle if you want the look of top stitching (like t-shirt).

For the blind hem, you need to baste the hem and then the fold so they do not shift as the machine stitches the hem.

I like to test each of these techniques by making a sample with the same fabric and adjusting length when using the twin needle or width and length when doing the blind hem.

Twin needle does limit the stitching to a straight stitch or a very, very narrow zig-zag - this has to be hand walked to be sure neither swing hits the presser foot or needle plate before stitching.

If you want to do blind hemming you need to find the stitch on your machine that looks like 3 small zigzags, then one bigger one, or 3 straight stitches, then one zig zag to the side. This is the blind hemming stitch. You'll possibly also have a blind hemming foot to use, which helps with guiding the fabric fold into the machine and keeping it even.

As the previous poster said, blind hemming is a little difficult to explain. You'd be best served by visiting http://sewing.about.com/od/techniques/ss/machineblindsti.htm for photos and intructions, getting a copy of a manual for your machine (if it doesn't have this stitch, then you're going to need to find another way) or getting a ibrary book out.

Blind hemming works best when hemming straight edges of fabric such as a ruffle on a full skirt - if there is any curve in the seam, it gets much harder and the result won't look so good. In essence, you press the fabric hem up, then fold the hem edge back under so you have a "S' shape, then sew along the single layer with the folded edge sitting against the foot guide. Then when the machine takes the 4th wide stitch, the needle swings to the left and catches a small stitch into the upper folded layer, then back onto the hem. The trick is adjusting the stitch so that the wide stitch doesn't show much on the right side of the garment.
