SOURCE: How do I change the stiches?

You can do all of these stitches by using different combinations of your stitch selector, stitch width and stitch feed knobs, for instance, on the panel I can see on your machine:

http://www.jo-ann.com/joann/product/images/52659.jsp?CATID=cat3122&PRODID=prd11333

Stitches 1, 2 & 3 are straight stitches, centered, left and right. Really basic stuff, not different stitches at all. 4,5,6,7 & 8 are zig-zag stitches of different widths. 9 is the widest zig-zag (no. 8) on a finer stitch length, etc...

I think you should try and get an instruction manual for your machine. After a lengthy search of my usual manual sources, I've determined that that this may not be so easy. I think you should contact White on their 800 number and let them try and help you... 1-800-331-3164.

If you found this helpful, please vote generously as I receive nothing other than acknowledgement for my time.

Try oiling the hook if you haven't recently.
Check you needle plate and hook for damage, they may need to be buffed or sanded smooth.
Check your upper tension discs for lint and double check your upper thread path (proper threading).
There are other things like hook timing, needle clearance or broken check spring that may be wrong but you need a technician for those things.
best of luck!

Make sure the feed dogs are dropped (or feed dog cover is on - I can't remember which way this machine works). The stitch length on the machine has no function so ignore it. (I set it to zero so the machine doesn't have to work as hard). Hopefully this is all that's wrong. If not, use a shorter setting for the stitch length on the regulator, oil the hook and move slowly and smoothly.
Good luck!

What setting do I use for blind hems on Viking 183


Select the blind hem stitch. Be sure to have the correct presser foot. Then set the stitch width so the "zag" will catch the fabric fold and set the stitch length so there are probably about 10-12 stitches per inch.

I want a 1.8 stitch length to paper piece ... I can't figure out how pfaff creative changes to 1.8


..
Looks like your machine's stitch length ranges from 0-6 mm. So you are looking at something just under 2 mm--there very possibly is a 1.8 setting on your machine. Basically, your paper piecing instructions are telling you to set the machine to stitch somewhere between ~12 to 14 stitches per inch. The accuracy of 1.8 is Not that important. What they are trying to do is make sure your stitches are close enough together to make it easy to tear away the piecing paper. When using longer stitches for paper piecing, it is sometimes difficult to tear away the paper without pulling the thread stitches. Most garment stitching is set between 10-12 stitches per inch. So you want something just a little closer together, ie more stitches per inch. If you are concerned, try it out on a scrap piece of paper and fabric and try tearing it away. If it works, then that's all you need to use.

I HAVE A SINGER MERRIT 8734 AND NEED TO KNOW WHAT THE NORMAL STITCH SETTING IS.


"Normal" is difficult to describe because it depends on the thread and fabric you are stitching. Standard straight stitch setting for most standard fabrics is probably whatever will deliver 10-12 stitches per inch.

How do I correct stitch length mechanism to produce 6 stitches per inch?


the stitch length is governed by the cam action connected to the walking foot
that means that the stitch length is governed by the amount of material that is pulled through in the period of time that the needle comes up and goes down
normally the cam action is set by the stitch length lever/ reverse lever
if there is a necessity for a longer stitch, the cam would have to be changed on the drive shaft underneath
That will require a discussion with a sewing machine mechanic to determine if there are cams or other linkages that can be fitted to alter the stitch length for the manufactured maximum

How do I set the machine to do a basting stich


if the machine can do a basting stitch the information should be in the sewing machine manual, if you don't have a manual, add a comment with the name and model number of the machine and someone should be able to help you find one.

or you can also try youtube for a video

My stitch length is tiny and will not change


When selecting a stich, there's a button with a triangle with one edge pointing down. There you can select Needle Position and Stitch Length. --PDF manual, page 23

The thread tension has no influence on the stitch length. It just adjusts, where needle thread and bobbin thread 'meet' inside the fabric. A too high tension means, the bobbin thread is pulled trough the fabric and can be seen on the upper (needle) side. A too low tension means, the bobbin thread is not pulled through the fabric and you can see the needle thread on the bobbin side.

Hi, I have a Juki ddl 552 that does not have te stich setting nob. I am wondring how can I change my stich seting? please help.


Here is a threading diagram for this industrial machine
http://www.sewusa.com/Threading_Diagrams/Threading_Pages/Juki_Sewing_machine_threading/Juki_552_553_555_227_Threading_Diagram.htm

You can also buy a manual here
http://www.sewusa.com/Sewing_Machine_Manuals/Juki_Manuals/Juki_Industrial_Sewing_Machine_Manuals/227-552-553-555_Instruction_Manual.htm for this model.

I would have thought there would be some sort of screw or adjustment to control stitch length but I can't find an image for your model.
However this image might help, http://www.johnharbsew.com/images/threading/JUKI-DNU-241-TD.jpg, my Singer 20U, has a dial like this with numbers on that you adjust for length, is there something similar on the Juki?
