How to change stitches

I have a Necchi 535FA and no manual. I need to know how to use stitch number 6 at the moment. Right now it is straight and tight but neat. It was my Grandmothers and this is the first time I have tried to use it. I found how to thread it online and so that part is done correctly. I just seem to have a problem getting the right combo for the stitches.

You really need the instruction manual. You can order one at several places. I ordered mine through the Allyn Co., who is the present day Necchi distributer now in the U.S.A. You can order by calling them at 1-800-525-9987. They cost $10. & a moderate shipping & handling chargr. Their manuals are pretty informative on the machines, at least mine is.I bought two Necchi's used. One is a 537l & the other is a 525FA. It tells you how to clean & oil it & how often to do it & mine shows you how to set machine for the various results, & tells your stretch from the other stiches, etc.

I need to know how to make a button hole, can't find manual.


Hi there, don't know your machine but you can do a plaiin buttonhole manually.
Set machine up for zigzag stitch, needle to left side, mark out the size you need with pins or marker pen. Start at the top and set for widest zigzag with 0 length for the top bar, cannot give sizes as don't know the button you are using, about 6 stitches, set stitch width to just over half the width of top bar and length to approx 0.5. Stitch down to bottom marker and again set up ffor the wide bar, do the same amount of stitches as the top, finish with needle down at the outside edge, turn work so that you will now stitch down the other side to meet the top bar, not forgetting to adjust stitch length and width again.
Hope this helps

Casn I use a double needle on this model?


If you have a zig-zag stitch on your machine, you have the capability of using a twin needle when using a STRAIGHT stitch. The width between the needles is the same as the width for the z-z stitch but you won't be using that stitch. Only the straight stitch.

You have 3 knobs/dials on the machine, the top left dials the stitch, the top right sets the length and the bottom right set your width. set it 0 for straight.

Only does zig zag stitches, no straight stitches,


make sure the pattern selector is set for straight stitch first. If it is set correct then the machine may be "stuck" is zig zag mode. May need to be de greased and then re lubricated.

I have a necchi 4595, and well I cannot figure out the straight stitch....the dial doesn't show one?


It's just in the front panel, where the drawing of all the built in stitches are, it's the drawing number eleven from the left, you'll see a zig zag (red) and a straight stitch (black) Select A group of stitches (knob with the arrow) and then select the eleventh stitch (same knob but use the dial, look the manual) and then select zero on your stitch width dial. Hope that helps :)

Necchi automatic BU supernova sewing machine


Hello! Hello!

Your machine is probably not 50 years old. I have one just like it that we purchased about 5 years ago. Necchi makes a very sturdy reliable machine. There are a couple of tricks, though. First, your bobbin thread has to turn clockwise. If it doesn't, it will either not sew, the stitch will look horrible or the thread will break. Second, threading it is pretty easy; however, I can't explain some of the parts. I would be happy to scan the diagram and e-mail it to you. E-mail: daridoll@yahoo.com. The tension should be set at 3 unless you are doing a ruffle or close zigzagging (machine applique). For applique, I find that I have to move it to 2. For ruffles or gathering, set it at 0 and your stitch width to 4. Another trick is to hold the top thread for the first 2 stitches. This alleviates a bobbin catch at the beginning. Other things you will want to know are in regard to the two knobs. One is pretty simple. It has a line that gradually increases in a zigzag. This knob basically adjusts the width of the zig zag. Obviously, for straight stitching, you would make sure the straight line is towards the top. The other knob determines the type of stitch you want to do. The red stitch options on top of the machine can be done with #1, 2, 3, 4 or 5 at the top; however, I usually use #1. The blue stitches are really fun! Simply decide which stich you want and make sure the corresponding number on the dial is turned towards the top. Also, it is very important that you adjust the other knob to the largest zigzag possible AND change the stitch length to 4. Don't pull on the fabric from behind the machine as you are sewing, because the machine will go forward and backwards while making many of these stitches. The green A, B, C on the dial are used for the automatic buttonhole feature. In order to use this, make sure you have the button hole foot. It looks like a long rectangular piece of plastic with measurements on it and hollow in the center. Not sure if that description makes sense. Anyway, the first step is "C." Make sure you begin with the button hole pressure foot measuring "0". Also, change your zigzag width to the desired width AND change the stitch length to less than 1. (You will notice that this area has a green line on it.) Begin stitching. You should be moving forward. When you have reached the desired length, make sure the needle is up, then turn the knob to "B" (sometimes I make my zigzag wider for this part), begin sewing. You should not go forward or backward. This step makes the bottom of the button hole. I only make 3 or 4 "B" stitches. When done, make sure the needle is up, adjust your zigzag back again if you changed it for B, and set it on "A". This will take you backwards. If you started your button hole with the foot on 0, it will automatically stop moving backwards when you reach 0 again. At this point make sure your needle is up again, then set the knob on "B" once more. If you adjusted B before, do it again. There you are! You can use twin needles on this machine. It also works well with a walking foot for quilting. Oh! To wind your bobbin (starting from the thread spool) you need to slide the thread under the little metal knob sticking out on top of the metal "?" right above the tension and then insert it into the hole in the bobbin spool. Push the bobbin to the right. This locks it into place. Next, hold the outer part of the flywheel (round wheel on right side of machine) while turning the inner wheel towards you. This will disengage the needle and allow the bobbin to wind. Now you can press on the "gas" and wa-laah. It will slow down and almost stop when it is completed. Cut your thread, slide the bobbin to the left to unlock, tighten the wheel and you're done. If you have any more questions, let me know. Hope this helps!

How do I change the stiches?


You can do all of these stitches by using different combinations of your stitch selector, stitch width and stitch feed knobs, for instance, on the panel I can see on your machine:

http://www.jo-ann.com/joann/product/images/52659.jsp?CATID=cat3122&PRODID=prd11333

Stitches 1, 2 & 3 are straight stitches, centered, left and right. Really basic stuff, not different stitches at all. 4,5,6,7 & 8 are zig-zag stitches of different widths. 9 is the widest zig-zag (no. 8) on a finer stitch length, etc...

I think you should try and get an instruction manual for your machine. After a lengthy search of my usual manual sources, I've determined that that this may not be so easy. I think you should contact White on their 800 number and let them try and help you... 1-800-331-3164.

If you found this helpful, please vote generously as I receive nothing other than acknowledgement for my time.
