How do I sew cloth patches onto jacket. I used heavy duty needle but can not find a setting to use. I have my instruction manual but it is of no help for heavy weight material


I don't know about your specific machine, but in general for heavier fabric, increase the pressure on your pressure foot and reduce the length of your stitches.

Elna 2005 I don't have the manual. Which setting is for the stretch stitch?


A special stretch stitch is not required to sew stretchy fabric. All one needs is a zig-zag that is wide enough and close together enough to allow the fabric to stretch without breaking the stitching thread. (Test it on a piece of scrap fabric you are using, give it a good tug and see if the thread breaks.)

NOTE: be sure to use a ball-point needle. A sharp needle will tend to cut the fabric threads and your stretch fabric will eventually develop holes and runs commonly found in knits.

There doesn't appear to be a manual for your machine, however, you can usually find a manual close to your machine model and the instructions will be similar enough to suffice. Perhaps you will find one with instructions for sewing stretch fabric:

I dont have the instruction manual and i cant figure out how to do a zig zag stitch? Help


You don't say the make and model of sewing machine. But generally zig zag is achieved by selecting the zig zig stitch on the stitch selector, then setting stitch length to 2 and stitch,width to between 3 and 4, depending on the fabric. If its a very light weight fabric 4 the thread will pull in and tunnel the fabric so turn down to narrow the width of the stitch.

Refuses to sew on thick fabric why?


Here's a pdf of your manual Singer owns White's manuals now.

Typically you need a longer stitch to sew thicker fabrics, have you tried that yet?

Im trying to sew letters on thin fabric and lace. I think the grip is to ruff for the fabric. how do i fix this?


you will need to have stabiliser behind the fabric to give it stability for any type of machine embroidery.

Look for a product called "stitch and tear" or "solvy" which washes away in water after you've completed the stitching.

Also, consider using machine embroidery thread for this task, its silky and gives a lovely sheen.

I've always used an embroidery hoop to hold the layers all together for monogramming so things don't slip.

I'd suggest you google "machine embroidery" or try www.sewing.about.com and see if there are other machine embroidery tips there.

Instructions for buttonhole 40. I do not have instructions for making a 40 automatic buttonhole.


Instructions are on page 132 of the manual. Use either foot 5A or No.10 (which is more complicated). Select stitch No.40 then enter the length of the buttonhole you want to make using the number keys. If you want to define where the second bartack goes manually, press key 6 (under "Man") and you will have to press the Reverse key when the second row is where you want to finish the buttonhole. You will not be able to repeat this same size buttonhole automatically if you chose Manual bartack. By pressing OK after setting the length of the buttonhole you will be presented with a screen where you can adjust the width of the buttonhole (wider for heavy fabrics, narrower for finer fabrics) if you want.

The feed dogs on your machine do not drop. Instead, the machine has a darning plate that covers the feed dogs (see the accessories listed in the manual). If the darning plate is installed properly, it should prevent the feed dogs from contacting the fabric.

Make sure the stitch length dial is set @ 2 or higher. This will insure the fabric will move as the machine stitches.

I couldn't find my manual for the Dual Sew 3500, either, and long story short, I discovered the manufacturer of Dual Sew is the parent company of Janome; that the Janome 4618 Limited Edition is virtually the same machine; wrote to Janome and they emailed me the PDF manual for th 4618LE. What a relief.
