I just need instructions to thread a Bernina Virtuosa 160 for pintucking


Your owner's manual should have instructions for using a twin needle.

Most machines can use a twin needle. However, some machines have two tension disks so one can separate the two threads and get equal tension. (The Bernina 930 has two tension disks, so am assuming your newer machine does also.) Look at the top of your machine where the tension mechanism resides and see if there is a right and left side. In either case, do NOT thread both threads at the same time as the threads can become twisted. When threading the machine, ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot, thread one thread completely. If threading the left side of the tension disk, also thread the left needle. Then thread the second thread, making sure to use the other side of the tension disk and needle.

Just a reminder to be careful using any zig-zag or decorative stitches since a twin needle requires a narrower stitch width to avoid broken needles.

How to use a twin needle


In most machines you do as follows.
Insert the second spool pin and place a spool of thread on each. Thread in usual sequence but make sure to pass one thread to the left and one to the right of the tension disc and do not allow the threads to twist together then thread needles manually.

Code E8 on brother Model Ns40


Yes the manual for Brother sewing machines are available from their support site: http://www.brother-usa.com/manuals/default.aspx?ProductGroupID=3#.TyH3fIFtNG9 . I believe the NS40 is the Brother Innov-is 40. The direct link to the manual is http://www.brother-usa.com/ModelDocuments/Consumer/Users%20Manual/UM_Innov_%C3%ADs%2040_%20NEW%20Limited%20Edition_EN_1114.PDF . An E8 error means that a stitch was selected after the twin-needle setting has been selected. Cancel the twin-needle setting and then select a stitch. Then if you are using a twin-needle setting, adjust the machine for the twin-needle setting.

I hope this helps.

I need to hem a t-shirt but not sure how...ie: type of stitch,length,needle et...do I need to zig zag first then finish off with a stretch stitch ? Thanks


The best way to hem around a garment where the seam is going to receive stretching during wearing is with a stretch twin (double) needle.

Pretty easy, just turn up an even hem of 15mm right around the hem line (I am assuming that the bottom edge is even, if not, trim it up first), and press this hem allowance up, pin if you have a jersey that won't stay flat but many cotton knits are fine and the pressing will be enough.

Then thread up your sewing machine for twin needle sewing, refer to your manual if you have never done this before. You will thread two spools of same colour thread up on top of the machine and bring both threads through all threading points down to your needle, then one through each needle eye. Some machines will have a tension device where you can run each thread on either side of a tension disc, most will have twin spools on top of the machine to hold both spools.

You need a stretch twin needle, Schmetz do these in two sizes,
Stretch Twin
Size:
2.5/75, 4.0/75
Twin needles look like this.
tally_girl_65.jpg I prefer the 2.5mm gap between the needles. Dont try with a regular twin, it must be stretch needle with ball point points. On some computerised machines, you need a twin needle with a blue bridge, on mechanical machines it will have a red bridge (something to do with horizonal hooks I think). But read your manual or look in your accessory box, your machine may have come with a twin needle and if so, make a note of the needle bridgecolour, then buy that one next time.

Now, set the machine for a straight stitch and place the garment right side up, with the folded hem allowance underneath on the sewing machine and align the folded edge on your 10mm marking. Start at a side seam, and stitch SLOWLY around the whole hem line until you get back to the starting point. Stop, cut your threads and press again. Voila done. I never bother to zigzag a knit fabric, just stitch it. Knits don't fray.

I have for gotten how to make the machine sew and im having trouble threading a bobbin for my moms machine elna 7000 i need a manual or a quick note to get started


YOu can down load a manual from here http://www.arizonaexpressionz.com/elna_instruction_manuals/Elna7000.pdf

Just remember to click the bobbin thread into the tension device correctly and hold the two threads behind the pressure foot when you start each seam - Elna top loading bobbins give great stitch quality but you just need to keep stray threads out or they'll jam up.

Also, you must use the Elna plastic bobbin that the manual specifies for this machine - the 5000, 7000 and 9000 were Elna Tavaro Switzerland's first foray into computerised machines and first released in 1986.

Also, please check the manual when you go to buy twin needles, there are two types now as computerised machines usually need the twin needles offset from the shaft position. They have red or black plastic block between the shaft and the twin needles - I think you need the red ones but just double check the manual to make sure. And you can't do all the wide stitches with a twin needle as it will strike the foot.

Hope this helps a little.

What foot do I use with the twin needle?


You need to use the zig zag or satin stitch presser foot with the twin needle. You also need to make sure you have the zig zag plate on your machine. Also, remember when using the twin needle, you cannot put your stitch width beyond half way. The best thing to do is once you select the width, turn the handwheel to see where the needle is going to hit, you want to make sure it clears the plate or it will break.

Brother XR65 twin needle threading


hi roscoepc1.....The threading pattern is identical to single needle. The only changes are that you now are threading 2 spools of thread, one thread for each needle. The only change that I reccommend, but not neccessary, is that while threading through the tension dial, lay your threads between separate discs, and not together between the same pair of discs. Your tension dial contains either 3 or 4 discs.......please update your post if you have any further information or questions.....good luck my friend
