Question about Riccar Sewing Machines
Hi, I've not used my machine for quite sometime, so today I thought i'd use it. the tension is fine, I 've cleaned the machine of lint yet whatever setting I turn the dial to, the stitch length remains very small. I've tried testing different types of fabric, needle, threads but nothing seems to make any difference. Can you suggest anything?
The stitch length dial may need to be checked to see if it's worn or damaged or may need a adjustment.
