Question about As Seen On TV Handy Stitch Mechanical Sewing Machine

I don't understand the instructions!!

I found instructions for the use of my Handy Stitch, and I don't understand how the bobbin and the regular thread work. I know how to thread it with the regular thread, but the bobbin completely confuses me.

The stitch length is messed up on my Pfaff 7570. If I change it to about 4.5 then I get about a regular stitch length (2.5). I can't baste, the max stitch length is not long enough.


Perhaps this DIY web site would be helpful. I'm wondering if the feed dogs may did a teensy bit of oil to help them move. (Perhaps use a good quality oil or liquid Tri-Flow Synthetic Lube.)

Pfixing the Pfaff


BTW, did you happen to see this:

Skipping right side stitch on a zigzag stitch, so when i am running a zigzag stitch when the needle goes through the fabric and comes back up it pulls the stitch back with it ??


check your bobbin and is the needle good and sharp and the proper length.make sure its not bentthe tiniest defectt n a needle can mess up any stitch.
how does it work on regular stitching.
most problems with machines involve.bad needles incorrect threading of bobbin or spool,dirty bobbin,incorrect needle.
it sounds like the needle isnt catching the bobbin thread.
hope this helps

I have no manual for my Elna 1010 sewing machine. My question is how do I thread it and is there a blanket stitch on this machine. Thank you. Joan


There are several websites where manuals can be found:

http://www.tias.com/stores/relics/ has authorised reproductions of many Elna manuals for sale but not yours.

www.diplodocs.com is a free souce but no 1010 there.

www.sewingpartsonline.com is a great site too, and they have yours for sale $US15
link is
http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/instruction-manual-elna-1010.aspx

I don't know this model real well, but I'm guessing it is a front loading bobbin and bobbin case design maybe?? If so, you may well find that just looking at the instructions for any front loading bobbin machine will get you started,
try this link
http://www.sewusa.com/Threading_Diagrams/Threading_Pages/Elna_Sewing_machine_threading/Elna_225_threading_diagram.htm
These Elnitas 225, 244, 245 were front loading bobbin style but "made under licence" and sold by Elna. I think the 1010 may well be a similar design so see if these diagrams help get you under way.

Its always helpful to source the genuine manual if possible though so worth spending the money; manuals contain maintenance info as well as threading up, and different techniques and accessories usually.

Lastly, Blanket stitch. I presume you mean the big chunky stitch where you turn an edge over and it looks like a straight line with a diagonal stitch going to the folded edge at regular intervals like this.
tally_girl_77.jpg Some sewing machines do a similar "overcasting" stitch but it won't be big like you might want on polar fleece or a blanket edge. The commercial blanket stitch you see on blankets will be done by a special purpose industrial machine and it applies a single thread just as you would when doing a blanket stitch by hand. So look at the stitch selection dial on your machine and see if there is something resembling a blanket stitch but it usually would only be 4mm wide, the maximum your machine probably can stitch.

So if you want a genuine blanket stitch, its a needle and heavy thread hand job, there are instructions on how to do at www.sewing.about.com, link is http://sewing.about.com/od/beginner1/ss/blanketstitch.htm

How do i thread my needle with the singer handy stitch?


  1. Loosen needle screw & insert needle with shank's flat side facing front of machine. Push needle in all the way, then tighten screw to hold needle in place.
  2. Install a fully wound bobbin by loosening bobbin nut & placing bobbin on top. Re-attach bobbin nut & tighten. If standard thread spool will be used, then attach spool pin to bobbin shaft & place thread spool onto shaft. Attach white spool cap on end of thread spool, then tighten. Bobbin/spool should unwind facing forward toward needle.
  3. Bring end of thread through thread guides & over tension control. Pass end of thread through needle eye, from back to front, & pull it out about two inches.
  4. A spring pushes pressor foot onto fabric that is being sewn, so lift pressor foot & place fabric underneath.
  5. Turn large handwheel on side of machine (handwheel can be turned in either direction) to raise needle arm to its highest position.
  6. Holding the Handy Stitch in place with your right hand, press on power switch & begin sewing. Guide fabric (being sewn) with your left hand.
  7. To end this sewing session, turn off power. Turn handwheel to raise needle to its highest position. Carefully pull out about three inches of thread through needle & snip, then lift pressor foot to remove fabric. Turn fabric over & loop needle threader through last stitch. Place end of thread from underside through eye of needle threader, & pull to loop through. Pull to tighten and snip end of thread.

It not a nut its a push fit all you have to do is give a pull and the plactic retaining stud will come off with the thread bobbin so you can replace it with another colour
