My new machine sewed fine in cotton material, but I am having trouble sewing on a silky top.


Machine settings usually need to be re-adjusted when the project materials change, ie the needle size & type, the type/weight of thread, the presser foot pressure, the thread tension, the stitch length, etc. Sewing woven cotton is very different from sewing silk or chiffon. Test on scraps of the fabric before actually sewing on the garment. Even adding tissue paper to the stitching will help prevent fabric puckering.

Why needle is not catching the bobbin thread


All problems like this are caused by incorrect threading of the cotton thread. Even if you have done it before, thread the cotton using the instructions in the manual.

Also make sure the bottom bobbin and its housing are correctly inserted.

I'm having problems with the stitches. The top looks fine while I'm sewing, but when I turn if over the stitches look loose. I've double checked multiple times that the machine is threaded correctly. ...


this is a Cotton tension problem either you have threaded it correctly if so then the tension wants adjusting, also check the tension on your shuttle by doing a drop test by holding the cotton tail that come from your shuttle if you jerk nit up and down the cotton that runs through the tension spring and it should just slip a little bit if it drops down to the floor then the centre small screw needs to be turned a little bit at a time to get the required tension as stated above, but don't worry your sewing m/c is ok, It's as I say a cotton tension problem.

good luck

Hi ,



Make sure your tension is not to tight and that there is now fluff or cotton stuck in between your tension plates. I sometimes use a string of the stitch to pull in between the tension plates. I always set the needles tension first and then i balance the tension of the upper and lower looper.

Make sure the cotton are not looped around a guide. Black cotton and some cottons can build up their own tension. Try different cotton. I\'ve had many a headache with this problem.

Check that the needles are not blunt or bent. I always use schmetz needles. If your needle plate has any damage where the cotton can get hooked. Use a small file or sand paper to remove it. The stitch tongue must be very smooth and the stitch must slide of smoothly. Check that your lower looper point does not have a sharp hook on it. You can use a very fine water sand paper to remove it.

If your needles are touching the looper, i could indicate that your lower looper is out of position. *.*(Always check this with new needles)



Regards

The tension seems fine on my machine, but I sew so much ,then she skips her stiitches. Can anyone help?


This may be as simple as the type of needle that you are using or it may be the distance between the hook and the needle. Denser fabrics cause the thread to be held so tight against the needle that the hook can't catch the thread off of it. If you are working on a lycra fabric, us a stretch needle or something like ultra-suede use a microtex or sharps needle.If you look at the hook of the machine, rotate the handwheel until the tip of the hook is just behind the needle. At this position, the needle should almost touch the hook. If it is more than 1/2mm away, take it to an authorized dealer and have it adjusted. Also take your fabric, thread and needle so that they can see what you are experiencing.

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.

I have s Bernina deco 650 embrodiery machine and the stitches won't catch. I had this machine serviced before I moved from SD to an eastern state. It was sewing fine and just started making a noise like it...


Your timing is out in the bobbin area this will have to be reset, maybe the last time that you used it you had a cotton jam, and it was pulled out of alignment.
