I would like to know what stitch number to put my sewing machine onto to stitch stretch material. I have a Elna 40 sewing machine regards Judy


Looks like stitch #06 might be a stretch stitch. You could probably also use a slight 08 or 09 zig-zag. Unless you are sewing something really stretchy (lycra) IMHO, a slight zig-zag is fine and actually is a lot faster than a stretch stitch which takes a few stitches forward and then one or two stitches in reverse. The stitch #09 is something that I use frequently for stretch fabrics.

From the pattern selector (the bigger dial), select the zig-zag stitch. Then, using the stitch length dial (the smaller dial), adjust the stitch length. The closer your stitch length is to "0", the more dense will your zig-zag stitch be.

My new Singer machine ("Curvy") purchased last week (3/2014) has a page on stretch stitches. The way the book is written, it lists Straight Stretch Stitch on the same page as Ric Rac, HOneycomb, and...


A zig-zag is also a stretch stitch. Usually, a "built-in" stretch stitch will stitch forward a couple and then stitch backward and then stitch forward again (time consuming and uses a lot of thread--but suitable if that's what you want). Whatever you are sewing, whether it is a seam or finished raw edge and the fabric is stretch, you will need to use a stretch or zig-zag. A straight stitch will pop the threads as soon as the fabric has to give.

You can test your stitches on some scrap fabric and see what looks best.

An Over-edge stitch is just that, just a stitch over the fabric edge. It probably would not be suitable for sewing a seam.

What would be a "stretch" stitch setting?


For a stretch stitch use a narrow zig zag stitch. Use a ball point needle with knit fabrics.

I was just wondering how to make a stretch stitch. I can't find my manual, or one online. @.@


Look for the "Tricot" setting. It looks like a zig zag, made up of tiny stitches. Multiple stitches on each zig and zag. Pull the material to it's stretched position as you sew.

Skipped stitches


Change the needle first and make sure it is inserted correctly. Use good thread i.e.: Guterman or Metler are some. If you are using a stretch material then put a stretch needle in the machine. If you do all this and it still skips then you may have a mechanical problem with the machine. The machine is "out of timing". Have a good tech. look at it. This happens quite frequently on "inexpensive" machines. Sorry.

Skipping stitches while zig-zagging


If you have put a new needle in then the chances are the machine has gone out of time, you can either take it in to the repair shop or you can contact me and I will attach timing instructions drivewithken@blueyonder.co.uk
