Take a look at the chart on needle and thread I posted as a tip, but generally, you'll need to use a larger needle, something like a 14 or maybe even a 16, but you shouldn't need heavy-duty thread.

On most brother machines there is a feature called my custom stitch. You can create any stitch there and save in a memory pocket for later use. I dont think the machine has a blanket stitch so its the only solution.

What should your tension be set on sewing machine for when sewing a 2-sided baby fleece blanket?


Sewing fleece presents some special challenges. For one, it dulls needles quickly, so change out the needles frequently. Sometimes a walking or rolling foot may be helpful.

How do I set the blanket stitch on my machine?


If you have the owner's manual, it should show the blanket stitch among the stitch selections for your machine. FWIW, a lot of vintage machines do not have a blanket stitch available, so don't be disappointed if your machine does not have it.

Hi I'm new to sewing! Does my singer have a blanket stitch


Your machine is a beginner model with only 8 stitches. Looking at the photo of the machine, it does not appear to have a blanket stitch.

Usually, only more advanced (and expensive) machines with more stitches will have the blanket stitch.

How to do blanket stitch


Usually, your machine would need to have a blanket stitch selection in order to perform a blanket stitch. If your machine does not offer that option, then you are probably out of luck unless it is a highly advanced computerized model that you can create your own stitch designs.

When I'm sewing fleece material the material wants to bunch up, how do I stop this?


Does this machine have adjustable pressure settings for the presser foot ? If it does, reduce the pressure. The softness and bulk of fleece makes it tend to bunch, so less pressure is very helpful. A wide presser foot with a very flat bottom may also help.

Reduced presser foot pressure is helpful for most knits, very much so for stretchy fabrics. Fleeces are usually knits.

Using a stretch stitch also helps. If you don't have a stretch stitch, a very small zig zag is helpful to provide some give to the seam.

Blanket stitch for the 930 bernina


The Bernina 930 Record does not have a blanket stitch. It has a few decorative stitches that are similar, but not exact.

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
