Once I set up my design card and select design, the needle moves

Once I set up my design card and select design the needle moves along the stitches so I loose some stitches before I start to embroider. I wonder what the matter is.

Hi, and welcome to FixYa. If I understand your problem, the needle goes in and out of your fabric, and the embroidery hoop moves, but the machine does not actually start embroidering your design right away....did I get it right? If have time to answer a few questions, I can give more accurate instructions.

  1. How long have you had your machine?
  2. How long have you been doing machine embroidery?
  3. Do you have a manual for your machine?
  4. Look at the back side of your design - do you see lots of bobbin thread, or hardly any?
  5. Have you taken lessons for your machine or for embroidery?
  6. When your design is finished, can you where the machine skipped stitches?
Here a couple of things you can try (if you have already):

  • Make sure you use an embroidery needle, not a universal. In most cases, you should use a size 90. Change your needle after each project. A blunt need can cause your machine to skip embroidery stitches anywhere in the design.
  • Rewind or replace your bobbin. Make sure you use bobbin thread in your bobbin when you embroider - it is thinner and gives you better tension. If pre-wound embroidery bobbins are compatible with your machine, I recommend that you try one and compare the result with designs sewn using the bobbin thread you've been using.
  • Normally, you should loosen your tension a little bit when you embroider. When you look at the back side of your embroidery, you should see more bobbin thread than embroidery thread.
I owned an embroidery business for several years, and I have six different embroidery machines of my own - so with a little more info from you, I think I can help.

    Hi - just wanted to check in to see how you're doing? Is your machine still skipping threads when it starts?

Janome MC9400.Can needle position on U6 stretch stitch be altered.I want it to go more to the right. Also is there a way to just alter needle position without selecting a stitch first?


The width of the needle setting is limited by the width of the hole in the needle plate and the presser foot. You really don't want to alter this unless it has been knocked off its specified setting.

Some machines are straight-stitch only, some have 3 position settings (left, center, right), and some newer machines have a variety of needle position settings. Whichever your machine has is what you can use.

Please explain to me how to adjust the numerical, digital buttons on my 7430 Singer sewing machine?


I just took a look at your user's manual, and boy--you're right, and I've been a computer systems engineer for about 30 years!

Actually, it's easier to figure out by DOING rather than looking at the description on page 35. Basically, selection is divided into two categories--utility, that is, stitches you would use for ordinary sewing, like stretch stitches, zigzag stitches, straight stitch, buttonholes, etc. That is located on the left column, with the arrow keys used for navigation in the middle. The display only shows 5 patterns at a time, so to see all of them, you have to keep pressing the down arrow. Once you have selected the stitch itself, you can then select the stitches width and length, and if it's available for that particular stitch, you can mirror (flip) the stitch, and use a twin needle (if it's available for that design)

The decorative and letter stitches are selected on the right column, and work he same way--they are displayed 5 at a time, etc, and selecting stitch width and length, mirror, and twin needle. However, additionally, you can choose to have the pattern sewn once (the default) or continuously.

I hope that helps!

What is the tension settings for normal over locking with the Elna 4de


First of all ensure that the serger is threaded correctly.

The two setting which you mention are really a 'range' for an 'average' setting.

Using 'average' fabric such as a medium weight cotton, flannel, etc.; set each of the tensions in the middle of the range and test the stitch. There may be minor adjustment required to get a perfect stitch.

Once you have stitched that first sample, here are some possible minor adjustments required:
1. Tear-drop shaped loops on the underside: Check that the thread is firmly set in the tension dial by giving the needle threads a good snug pull above the tension dials while the presser foot is down.

2. The zig-zag like thread on top should meet the ziz-zag like thread on the underside right on the fabric cut edge. If the meeting happens on top: reduce the upper looper tension slightly and increase the lower looper tension slightly ... test sew and recheck. If the meeting is on the underside: increase the upper looper tension slightly and decrease the lower looper tension slightly ... test sew and recheck.

3. If the meeting does happen along the fabric cut edge but the meeting is hanging beyond the fabric cut edge: increase the blade position (that is, move the blade to the right). If the fabric is creating a ridge or tunnel; move the blade to the left slightly.

Please let me know if this has solved your problem. Otherwise let me know what is happening with the stitch quality.

I can not figure out how to set a straight stitch. I don't want a zig zag or a decorative stitch. How do i set my machine to do this?


First, make sure you select the straight stitch setting on the round dial. It is the one that has the dashed lines, looking like the stitch itself. Then, you may also want to be sure that the stitch WIDTH (dial with the picture that looks like a straight line gradually turning into a zig-zag) to the lowest setting, which is generally 0. With some machines, even after selecting a straight stitch setting, moving the stitch width can change needle position. Sometimes it will initiate the zig zag, other times it will move needle position left to right. Does that fix it?

I cannot get my sewing machine stitch the different stitches. I've followed all the instructions in the manual and all I get are straight stitches. I want to get a zig zag. Sometimes it looks like it did...


When you select a pattern does the needle move back and forth? do you make sure the stitch width lever is on straight stitch then select your pattern then select the widest stitch width? if when you select a zig zag stitch the needle does not move from side to side then you need to look in the top at the finger that goes round the cam.

My kenmore 385 won't feed fabric


Check to see what pattern is selected. Be sure it isn't the buttonhole.Select straight stitch.Move the stitch length setting to 4.Turn the handwheel and see if the feed dogs move forward. Press the reverse lever and see if they move backwards. Select straight stretch stitch and turn the wheel to see if the feed dogs move forward and backward.Check the presser foot release on top of the machine and make sure there is pressure on the foot.
Sometimes the reverse assembly on this machine stops working because it has the wrong type of grease on it and it turns into a hard gummy mess that won't let it work.

Bernina 1090 Needle assembly stopped moving down


Hi,
There is a spring loaded catch on the needle bar assembly. It is designed to keep the needle bar from going up and down on command for basting. That way it can take fewer stitches while basting. Anyway, over time, with lint build up, use and not enough oiling, the needle bar clamp release can stick. It is located in the machine cover and hard to get at. It is located right at the point where the needle bar clamp (middle of needle bar) is. It looks pointed on top and about 3/8" tall and SHOULD be able to move front to back (as you are sitting at the machine. If you want to fix it your self, lay the machine on it's back to see up into the needle bar area, you can also see through the threading slot as well.to oil it with SEWING MACHINE oil (read not 3 n1 oil) and try to work it front to back until it breaks free and play with it until it springs back every time you push it. I hope this helps.

Needle position


First, select straight stitch on your pattern selector. Check your zigzag setting to see that it is on zero.If this doesn't help, push the needle bar to the left and see if it will move. It's possible the assembly is seized and won't move the way it is supposed to.
Next, try the widest zigzag stitch. If you only get a straight stitch it is time for a service.
