Sewing backwards


sewing backwards is primarily to lock the threads at the start of a sewing process ans so stop unraveling of the stitch
it should be about 1/2 " long so you start sewing 1/2 inch , reverse back to start then reverse and sew on as normal
finish of the stitch should be the same before you raise the foot and snip the cottons

Top thread unravelling


Turn your spool around. You've got the little thread catch on the spool on the side it unspools from. Make sure it's the other direction.

I would suggest changing the needle
have you ran over any pins or heavy seams?
I would suggest finding a sewing machine shop in your area that can work on
the machine. because it could be out of time,,

Hi. My name is Sue. Could you please let me know if our Necchi sewing machine has a blanket stitch or not? The model number is 4825. Thank you


Hi Sue,

I found that the blanket stitch is also called a "whip stitch" or a "crochet stitch" and looks like this:

I tried to look for instructions or a manual on the web for your machine, but there's little to find. I did find a picture of the stitch selector - and it looked to me that the RED "D" or "F" :

was as close as that machine was going to get to it. I'm not a sewing machine person - so that may not be correct.

Good luck!

Brother XL3030 SEWING MACHINE ..STRAIGHT STITCH LOOKS GOOD ON TOP OF FABRIC, BUT BOTTOM STITCHES ARE SKIPPING AND LOOPS FORM IN PLACES..YOU CAN PULL THE THREAD RIGHT THROUGH AND UNRAVEL ALL STITCHING! I...


Check the bobbin tension and that the thread is tight around the bobbin. Make sure that the bobbin is in the right way around - the bobbin thread should double back on itself coming out of the bobbin holder.

My Evolve serger is skipping stitches while using the 4 thread safety stitch which is a chain stitch with a two thread overlock. Sews fine for a few stitches and then skips a loop which unravels. I checked...


First, change the needles making sure to use the el705 needle system. Second, make sure the subsidiary looper is engaged properly (plugging up the upper looper hole). Also make sure the needles are all the way up in the machine. This should do it or it may need to be adjusted but the Evolve is a very, very reliable machine. Hope this helps...

Bobbin unravelling on prolectrix 8 stitch sewing machine


did you put the bobbin thread in the tensioner? that would be the cut in the side of the bobbin case to pull the thread under the tensioner. if not it will cause problems. but if the top thread is looking good then the top thread is the problem, thread the machine with the presser foot up to let the thread into the tensioner, if it looks good on the top and not the bottom it is the upper thread if it looks good on the bottom and not the top it is the lower thread

Skipping stitches on coverstitch machine


To avoid skipped stitches on a coverstitch machine you need to use ELs (extra long) or SUK (stretch) needles and good quality thread. Poor quality thread is too fluffy and varies in thickness which can cause stitch problems. Try Maxilock thread from a cone or use maxilock on looper and regular sewing machine thread through needles and see if this improves the stitches. Also loosen off the lower looper tension to zero and see if this helps. If you are hemming around a garment and sewing across an overlocked seam then you need to minimise bulk too. lightly press the seams into the diretion you want them to sit when garment is finished, press the hem up, then force the seam allowance in the hem turnup area to the opposite direction. This spreads the seam bulk in both directions.
There is a knack to coverstitch machines but a good cover finish is quicker than twin needle on SM.

REX blind hem how to lock the stitch


When I purchased my blindstitch machine, I was also told to kind of snap the fabric as you pulled it our of the machine. Like you, I found that to be a little risky. Sometimes I'd just unravel what I'd sewn. I have found the most dependable thing to do is: Before removing the fabric from the machine, snip the thread between the fingers of the looper as it approaches the needle. If the loop is broken, the chain stitch will not pull out. If you cut the loop as it approaches the needle, you will get a bit longer tail so the needle doesn't come unthreaded on the next run. If you find you need a bit longer thread tail, you can pull a bit on that loop before cutting. As long as the needle has passed through the loop on the previous stitch, you'll be fine.
