Have you looked at your manual or bought the more expensive book from your dealer? I have found my book for my Evolve a VERY good investment (70 bucks, but worth every penny these past 2 years!)
Baby Lock have very good cust. service either on the web or right at your dealer. Most dealers will give free lessons upon request.
I hope this helped

How to use a twin needle on my SR2000 toyota sewing machine


First, verify that your machine can use a twin needle. Most machines take will use a twin needle will have separate thread guides and duel thread spool pins.

To thread it, thread one thread all the way through one of the needles and then thread the second thread through to the second needle. This will help keep the threads from twisting.

How to thread with double needle


You'll need to use two separate spools of thread. Machines that take a twin needle will usually have separated thread guides and two separate tension disks. Just make sure the threads are not twisted when threading. Might be better to thread one all the way through and then thread the second.

How To Use Twin Needles

Be sure to check the width of your stitch when using a twin needle. Because the needles will be wider than a single needle, it is very easy to hit the needle plate if setting it too wide.

WHY??!! *Check if thread is entangled. Check if needle is bent. So far as I can tell everything is fine, used new bobbin, new needle, still getting error. How do I know if the motor has become locked


Time to take it in and have the repair tech service & clean upper tension assembly. When you clip/ change threads be sure not to pull the thread back out of tension assembly. Snip thread at spool, raise foot to release tension and then pull the short thread out from the needle. The Automatic tension is very delicate and pulling thread out backwards can cause thread/lint build up and problems like your having. Sal the Sewing Gal

WHAT DO I DO TO GET MY BABY LOCK ELLURE ESL TO PICK UP THE BOBBIN THREAD?


You have your bobbin inserted into the machine spinning in the wrong direction. take the bobbin out and flip it over and wind around needle plate guide and cut. Look at the little pictogram on the plastic part of the machines throat plate. It shows which direction the thread should spin off the spool when you drop the top loading bobbin into the bobbin case.

I need to hem a t-shirt but not sure how...ie: type of stitch,length,needle et...do I need to zig zag first then finish off with a stretch stitch ? Thanks


The best way to hem around a garment where the seam is going to receive stretching during wearing is with a stretch twin (double) needle.

Pretty easy, just turn up an even hem of 15mm right around the hem line (I am assuming that the bottom edge is even, if not, trim it up first), and press this hem allowance up, pin if you have a jersey that won't stay flat but many cotton knits are fine and the pressing will be enough.

Then thread up your sewing machine for twin needle sewing, refer to your manual if you have never done this before. You will thread two spools of same colour thread up on top of the machine and bring both threads through all threading points down to your needle, then one through each needle eye. Some machines will have a tension device where you can run each thread on either side of a tension disc, most will have twin spools on top of the machine to hold both spools.

You need a stretch twin needle, Schmetz do these in two sizes,
Stretch Twin
Size:
2.5/75, 4.0/75
Twin needles look like this.
tally_girl_65.jpg I prefer the 2.5mm gap between the needles. Dont try with a regular twin, it must be stretch needle with ball point points. On some computerised machines, you need a twin needle with a blue bridge, on mechanical machines it will have a red bridge (something to do with horizonal hooks I think). But read your manual or look in your accessory box, your machine may have come with a twin needle and if so, make a note of the needle bridgecolour, then buy that one next time.

Now, set the machine for a straight stitch and place the garment right side up, with the folded hem allowance underneath on the sewing machine and align the folded edge on your 10mm marking. Start at a side seam, and stitch SLOWLY around the whole hem line until you get back to the starting point. Stop, cut your threads and press again. Voila done. I never bother to zigzag a knit fabric, just stitch it. Knits don't fray.

Can I use a twin needle on my Janome MW3018? Doesn't mention it in my instruction manual and I don't know how to thread the machine for twin needle sewing.


Twin needles can be used on any machine. Just make sure you use the correct presser foot......one that allows both needles to work without hitting the foot. Also.........you cannot zig-zag or use any other fancy stitch with a twin needle.......it is strictly for straight sewing. You have to use 2 spools of thread .....thread your machine with both threads as if they were one thread but separate the threads when you get to the needle. There is no change to the bobbin. Happy sewing. I can't be bothered to go to all this trouble so I just sew 2 rows to get the same look. Ofcourse you have to be very good at sewing perfectly straight seams doing it this way. Try both methods on a scrap and see which method you prefer.
