You should be able to do it with a standard straight stitch. All you need to do is put the desired roll-hem foot on.

How to make a roll-seam on my elna overlocker 4de

Consult the owner's manual. It should have basic instructions for the settings. You may also need a presser foot for making a rolled hem.

How do i set a necchi bu mira to sew vinyl

Vinyl will stick to the presser foot so either pit talcum powder on the vinyl or have a toilet roll on your lap and sew the toilet roll on the vinyl then peel it off

The thread does not roll off the bobbin smoothly. And the sewing is out and not straight. the needle keeps pulling the fabric.

Hi, you need to replace the bobbin case with one that is made by and for your machine, a generic make is not going to work properly.
hope this helps

I find it hard to determine which presser foot should be used for a given task

I would suggest that you visit and read some of the information pages there. Or buy/borrow from the library a basic sewing machine instruction book. There are several feet that make certain sewing tasks easier such as the blind heming foot, rolled hemming foot and zipper foot. But for much of your straight seaming, you will just use the main sewing foot or the plastic see through foot. A teflon coated foot is great for knits as it slides a bit easier. And a roller foot with two rollers front and back is for sewing vinyl or leather which doesn't slide like fabric.

Also, if you go to you can see images of various pressure feet with their names and this may help you to identify the different feet.

There are some specialised feet such as a cording foot to assist you to sew over cording, never used it! Or the pin tucking foot which helps you to space the rows of pin tucking.

If you learn the basics of dressmaking then you'll learn to use those special feet.

Any my all time favourite is the ruffler, it looks like a tool of torture but works beautifully if you want to put a frill around something big like a bed dust cover.
