Try turning it off for a few minutes and restarting - a lot of times this will make it re-set. Hope this helps.

I would like to know what stitch number to put my sewing machine onto to stitch stretch material. I have a Elna 40 sewing machine regards Judy


Looks like stitch #06 might be a stretch stitch. You could probably also use a slight 08 or 09 zig-zag. Unless you are sewing something really stretchy (lycra) IMHO, a slight zig-zag is fine and actually is a lot faster than a stretch stitch which takes a few stitches forward and then one or two stitches in reverse. The stitch #09 is something that I use frequently for stretch fabrics.

Singer 6510 3 dial machine - no "S" on stitch length dial selector


Lower numbers moves the fabric further for each time the needle penetrates the fabric. . If you raise the number you will get more stitches per inch which means your fabric is moving more slowly. Try moving the number to different locations for examples. If you are attempting to make something so it will stretch you are probably wanting to use a zigzag stitch. A wide zigzag stitch will allow a longer stretch than a less wide zigzag stitch.

My machine is skipping stitches


Lower the pressure on the feed dogs, use a stretch stitch, and longer stitch length. Be sure to use a good quality thread, and maybe go lighter weight thread.

Trouble sewing lycra fabric using a zig zag stitch


You have the machine set for blind hem stitching. Change the stitch selector to stretch stitch, which is a single, in line stitching zig zag stitch.

My Kenmore sewing machine model number is 17630, & when I try to set the stitch length from a Straight Stitch setting to a Straight STRETCH Stitch setting, there isn't any difference. I have the length...


Take a look at the stitch length dial. If you turn that dial counter clockwise (to about 7 o'clock), it will set to stretch stitch. Then all of the stretch stitch features will work. When you want to go back to straight stitching, just move that dial back to what ever stitch length you wish.

How do I do a stretch stitch?


The bes way to hem a t-shirt on a household machine is to use a double needle, straight stitch. You will see two straight stitches on top and zig zag on the back. Just make sure the zig zag catched the top of the hem.
