Satin Stitch Problems - Designer SE (similar to the Designer 1)

When embroidering, occasionally a satin stitch won't sink/isn't being pulled down so when you look at the embroidery from the side, there are little loops of thread. I've tried replacing the needle, made sure my bobbin thread is the right weight (60 weight/top is 40), and have tried to match the weight of fabric with stabilizer... I'm not sure what to try next.

You should take your machine to a Husqvarna authorized repairman. Suggest checking the grounding of the tension unit stepper motor. Earliest models weren't properly grounded and tension could vary. An authorized repairman should know where to go from there. I don't know of anything that you should attempt on your own.

It sounds like to me you might have some thread stuck in the tension assembly. Possibly some thread "snubs". Also there is an internal service program on this machine that could also solve that problem. That is why you need to take it to a qualified Husqvarna service center to be fixed by a qualified technician.

How do I do a basic satin stitch ? My machine only has patterned satin stitches


A satin stitch is a combination of a wide zig-zag and a short stitch length. Set the stitch width to the maximum. Then while stitching, shorten the stitch length until the threads lay next to each other so no fabric shows between the threads but the threads do not overlap. It would help if you have a satin stitch foot so there is space under the presser foot for the extra threads.

Need to do a satin stitch on Bernini 1630


Just set it for a short stitch length and a wide zig-zag. Test it and keep adjusting the stitch length so the thread will not overlap from stitch to stitch but also that the stitches are close enough so no fabric shows between the stitches.

What number is satin stitch on Piaf quilt expressions 4.0


A satin stitch is simply a zig-zag stitch that is shortened enough so the threads lay next to each other without laying over another but also without any space (fabric) showing between. Keep in mind that the thread weight will cause the satin stitch to differ.

I have a Bernina 145 S activa and I can't get my satin stitch to work , it brings the bobbin thread to the top , what can I do ?


Do you use stabilizer when you are satin stitching? I had a teacher who also hooped the fabric with a spring-loaded embroidery hoop (turned upside-down under the presser foot so the fabric is flat against the needle plate) that would keep the fabric taut.

It is not uncommon for bobbin thread to rise to the top when doing embroidery, satin stitch, etc., especially if you are using lighter-weight thread than usual. You would normally loosen the upper tension so the upper thread will sink into the fabric. However, if loosened upper tension is not doing enough, you may need to adjust bobbin tension when doing embroidery, applique... You might try tightening the bobbin tension just a smidgen to get the bobbin thread to stay below the fabric. Be sure to mark the bobbin case before making any adjustments so you can return it to the original setting when finished with the satin stitch. (If you do a lot of satin stitch or applique, etc., you may want to invest in a separate bobbin case that is set up only for doing that kind of work--saves having to alter the bobbin tension frequently.)

What can I do to widen my satin stitch when it is to narrow for the applique


Hello,
Unless you have and know how to use digitizing software, will you be able to add width to the satin stitches when doing applique. You need to cut the applique fabric larger than the cut-out-line so the applique fabric will held down properly. Some Commercial or higher end home embroidery machines can re-interpret the embroidery design and widen the satin stitches in a design without software. 6f3dbcfe-19c3-4021-b143-de10c9a89868.jpg

Bernina buttonhole 730


Use your ruler and measure your button. Then transfer those measurements to your garment.
Use chalk to mark the center cut line of your button hole. Mark the end or stop point of the button hole per the measurement.
Practice on a scrap of the same fabric before you begin on your garment.
Set your machine the satin stitch zig zag at a fairly narrow width.
Begin satin on one side of the center line of the mark. Slowly stitch down that side until you get to the end. STOP. Widen your satin stitch to the max. sew about 1/8" and stop with the needle down on the opposite side to your first line of stitching. Turn the fabric, narrow the stitch to match original satin stitch. Sew slowly down the other side of the center mark. STOP, lengthen the stitch, sew 1/8" then do a couple back stitches.

That's one way. Another older way is to sew 2 or tree straight stitch lines around the center line. Remove then use a hand rendered button hole stitch after you cut the hole.
