Question about Baby Lock Imagine

Wave stitch on the Imagine is possible.

I understand that the wave stitch is possible to do on the Imagine. Does anyone know how to do this? I think it has something to do with holding a certain thread, or threading it a certain way. It was demonstrated by Margaret Tully but I can't find it anywhere.

Re: Wave stitch on the Imagine is possible.

There are two Imagines, the regular imagine and the imagine wave. You would know it if you have the wave version. Not what you wanted to hear, but that's the way it is. Your manual would clearly state it and there is a dial that has to be turned to convert to the wave stitch.

I have a babylock imagine overlocker and what looks like the lower looper is puckering. I have some pictures available to best understand what I am refering to if this would help.

I have the same problem with my Imagine and am trying to find someone with some real knowledge. I think the problem is that the forks holding the thread are not opening up as wide as the stitch width and this causes puckering. if you serge just off the material your stitch will probably be perfect but your blades will not touch the fabric. My sewing repair shop thinks I used my machine too much and that I should send it to babylock which would cost 500 to 600 . How silly is that. I am trying to find out how to adjust the forks or someone who can do it for me. If you find something please post answer.

Baby lock Imagine Serger - Can anyone tell me how to fix this problem. The force air threader (looper) will not push the thread all the way through

I "THINK" I have my machine threaded properly but it will not make a chain stitch. I followed the thread guide for the narrow three spool set up with the right needle setting.
why would the machine not catch the chain ????

I cannot find instructions on how to gather/ruffle with my imagine wave babylock overlocker, please help.I need to know what settings and how many threads to use etc.

I do not have the Wave, but in the manual for my Imagine, on page 17, it states:

"at the maximum setting of 2.0 the differential feed can gather lightweight fabric to nearly double fullness.

To maximize the gathering effects, use the longest stitch length setting."

There is no indication as to the number of threads to use, but in the picture, it appears to be four.

I would use scraps of the same fabric to be ruffled and test this technique until I achieved the preferred look.

Baby Lock Imagine

Here are rhe directions from the manual of "Image" model BLE1AT: 3 Thread Rollled Edge
With the stitch selector set on "D", a narrow edge can become a rolled edge. Remove the left needle and the corresponding thread. Clear the stitch fingers. Turn the stitch length adjusting dial clockwise into the rolled hem range and set the dail at 1.5 Set the stitch width to 3.5

Hope this will be of some help. Good luck and have a great day! Lisa

Where to oil and what kind of stitches can it do.

I found my answer by going to the dealer here and asking questions. They were very helpful and friendly. Said that if I need any more help to let them know. I bought a Bernina from them about a year ago. I really like it.

Does not stitch lower thread

Make sure when you thread the machine you have the thread seated into the tension assembly on top, then make sure you have the threading ports locked and the switch in the proper place for each looper threading, the machine will only partially thread if you do not have the port locked and it will even still sew although not properly.
