SOURCE: I recently received 2 White

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.

SOURCE: My stitch length is not what I have it set for. I set it on 5

I assume you mean it stitches 6 or 8 when set at 5.
Because the number shown on the wheel says "5" doesn't necessarily mean 5. It's just an approximation. You'll note that when turning the wheel there's tension. The numbers are just numbers. It isn't a micrometer, its a sewing machine. So, you can simply adjust to get the stitch you want then make a mark on the wheel at that point. You may end up between 4 and 5, or between 5 and 6. No matter. Wherever you get 5 per inch is where the adjustment is.

Are you sure that the feed dogs have not been dropped to enable embroidery, and not returned to the normal sew position, consult the handbook for instructions.

SOURCE: Inspiration 4205 stitch length won't change

Are you certain that the pattern selector is set for straight stitch and not buttonhole?

Turn the handwheel so that the needle is up and the take-up lever is in it's highest position. Then turn the pattern selector knob through all of the patterns back and forth a few times. Finally, select straight stitch and see if the length works. If not, need to take it to a repair person to determine the course of action.

SOURCE: Settings

Width is one.

Length depends on the thickness of the fabric; 2.5 is the normal setting, but you may have to adjust to your liking or the age and condition of the machine you are using.

Fold a scrap of the fabric you will be sewing and test the settings, then write the settings down or on the sample for future reference.

Need to do a satin stitch on Bernini 1630


Just set it for a short stitch length and a wide zig-zag. Test it and keep adjusting the stitch length so the thread will not overlap from stitch to stitch but also that the stitches are close enough so no fabric shows between the stitches.

What do I set my machine for to make very close zig zag stitch. Husqvarna Viking platinum 755.


With most machines after you select the Zig Zag setting you then select the normal stitch knob that can be adjusted for long or short stitch lengths and that should also give you adjustment on your Zig Zag stitch length .

Singer 29k71 stitch length on the longest still not enough about 2 mm..! What can be done..!?


If that is the maximum stitch length and you do not have a basting stitch, then you can't make a larger stitch. You could try free motion stitching where you drop the feed dogs, use a darning foot and manually move the fabric, but getting the stitches even would be quite difficult.

Is a satin stich programed in the machine.


Perhaps newer machines have it, but usually the sewists programs it. All it requires is a wide stitch and short stitch length. The length is adjusted so the thread actually covers the fabric between stitches, but does not overlap itself. Even if the sewist has a programmed satin stitch but there may still be some required adjustments needed since the thickness of the thread will alter the way the stitch looks.

The little Teeth/feeder under the foot doesn't push the fabric out. The fabric doesn't move


check where the direction button/lever is
it controls the feed mechanism and if it is in the middle the teeth will just go up and down
set it one way and it moves forward and set the other way will go in reverse
it is graduated to provide a stitch length ( number of stitches per 1")

Easiest way to make a buttonhole...manual does not tell much info


Easiest way is to create a bar tack at one end of the buttonhole (widest stitch width and stitch length set to 0). Stitch maybe 4 or 5 stitches.
Then move needle all the way to the left, set stitch length to very short (maybe somewhere between 0 & 1), width to slightly less than half, stitch forward to the end of the buttonhole.
Then make another bar tack (as above). Move needle all the way to the right, set to less than half width, short stitch length, and stitch in REVERSE to first bar tack. To tie off, set width to 0 and length to 0 and stitch 2-3 times in place. Raise presser foot, pull gently on fabric and clip threads.

Is there a way to do a manual buttonhole on a Bernette 65 since I so not have an automatic buttonhole foot



all sewing machines can make manual buttonholes. when the machine is adjustable stitch length, stitch width and needle position.


stitch length should be short.
stitch width to be set en route between 2 and 5 at the ends.
needle position must also be set on the way

you have to try and make some test before you get it right
good Luck ;)
