    I already have the manual. I have done all the settings the way I should as far as I can tell. I just wanted to see if anyone out there could give me specifics. I set the thread, tension and stitch and still no luck ruffling.

SOURCE: ruffler/gathering foot

There is a ruffling foot for brother machines. Google Brothers sewing machine feet and I am sure you will find a automatic ruffling foot.

SOURCE: my new ruffling foot keeps jamming my machine

Take the foot off and check for a small burr in the area that pushes the material through. If there is a burr, it will get caught, especially on lace. The burr can be removed with a very fine abrasive stone or the emery srea from a match pack.

The knob could be broken or just gunked up - try a hair dryer to soften up the years of lubrication and dust to see if the knob is moving because it cannot lock in at the length selected - like sliding on ice.

Is the Kenmore sewing machine 15343 able to do a baste stitch? If so, how?


A baste stitch is basically setting the machine to a straight stitch with the longest stitch length available. Loosen the top tension slightly if you want to remove the basting later.

What are the correct settings for basteing on an elna excellence 730


Here's a manual for your machine:

ELNA eXcellence 730 Instruction Manual

If your machine does not have a "basting" stitch selection, you make your own basting stitch by:

* Setting the stitch length to the maximum
* Loosen the upper tension so the bobbin thread lies flat under the fabric

Then to gather or remove the basting stitch, it is easy to pull on the bobbin thread.

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

How to baste?


Basting is simply using a long stitch that can be pulled out after you put the main stitch in. It holds fabric in the right place till it is sewn.

I am wanting to set my machine (quilters dream 6603) for the best basting stitch I can. I am having trouble figuring out how to set the machine. Thanks.


I haven't been able to find a 6003 manual or a good image of the stitch range for this machine on line. However, a basting stitch might look like " . _____ . _____. " on your stitch selector. As your machine is targeted for quilters I'd have expected it to have a basting stitch in its range.

If there is nothing like that, then just dial up the longest possible straight stitch, ie take length up to 4 or 5, whatever the maximum number is. Then loosen off the top and bottom tensions and stitch away.

If you are using this to baste a quilt top, botton and batting together, I've discovered a product called "spray basting" which is fantastic and "glues" the layers together while you sew them. You need a big clear floorspace though and put paper down under the project. But it works great.

Trust this is of help to you.

I have a mORSE 6500 WHICH WAS MADE BY TOYOTA AND i have no idea how to install cams nor what tension setting or stitch length I would need


The tension will depend on the material (knit, heavy denim, etc). See this pdf for a description of testing and setting the tension: www.ca.uky.edu/HES/fcs/FACTSHTS/CT-MMB-213.pdf . Most of my sewing is on double knit fabric and I start with the tension on 4. (Turn the knob to the right to get a higher value and tighter tension). The stitch length depends on the material if you are basting (for test fitting or prior to installing a zipper, for example) or if you are sewing the seam. Basting uses a long stitch, about 5-6 mm (4-5 stitches per inch). Most seams for a mid-weight fabric use a stitch length of 3-3.5 mm (8-9 stitches per inch). See Table 1 here: http://www.dummies.com/how-to/content/making-machine-stitches-work-for-you.html for more details.

To insert the cams, open the top of the machine and identify the fixed cams in the machine. If another specialty cam is installed, you may need to remove it to put in another cam. My machine (a Singer) only has space for one specialty cam at a time. The cams are labeled with the stitch that they provide and the stitch indicator faces up on the cam stack. (For my machine that means that the tall ring of the cam is up.)

A You-tube video of using the Morse 6500 is available: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ksfZZyqO1eE .

I hope this helps.

Husky 165 - won't do a basting stitch


Set the machine to its longest stitch length, put it in the warmest room in your house and in the sun if possible. If the stitch gets longer when the machine is warm it needs to be cleaned and lubed so that the stitch length mechanism moves freely.

If the lube in the machine is getting old or is nonexistent, the reverse button may be depressed and appear to return to its original position, when released, but the mechanism inside the machine only returns part of the way causing the length to be shorter than normal. Heat often masks this problem allowing the mechanism to move.

Long stitch!!


Hi teza...I assume that you have decreased your stitch length selector resulting in no change, indicating that the internal stitch length mechanism is either insufficiently lubricated, or truly broken If not broken, you can work the mechanism free by removing your needle, selecting the maximum stitch length and any non-overlock stich pattern, ie. straight or zigzag, fully depress your foot pedal so it runs at maximum speed, and methodically press and release the Reverse button/lever. After a minute of this, hand crank your machine while observing the feed dogs, and changing your stitch length. If your stich length is set to 0, your should observe your feed dogs moving vertically up and down with no back/forward motion, however, increasing as you lengthen your stitch length. Repeat the previous high speed work out until you notice full strokes of your feed dog...good luck my friend
