SOURCE: Clear greasy stains appearing on clothes from brand new LG front loading washer

the grease i'm sure would be coming from the machine. look at the water solenoids, detergent dispenser, dispenser solenoids, everything with rubber hoses.

they do put a clear grease just to insert the hose easier in the plant. and if it was not removed during QC, then it would come out now as you uses it.

tnx 4 using fixya,

SOURCE: what is a Narrow double hem with hand slip

You can find some instructions on a narrow double hem at http://www.sewjanetmoville.co.uk/content/learning/viewArticle.asp?lcArticleCategoryID=0&lcArticleID=3&pgid=learningCentre. Instead of machine sewing it, use a hand slip stitch as seen here: http://www.hutchal.clara.net/curtains/sewguide.htm.

You can find more info on these techniques at http://www.repair-home.com/how_to_sew_repairs.html

Hope this helps! Let me know if you need more info.

SOURCE: rolled hem on chiffon

Turn under the edge just about 1/4" and do a rolled edge then you can go back and trim off any of the folded under fabric that may show. Also, this keeps the hem from pulling away so easily. You may also try putting some water soluble stabilizer under the fabric before you serge.

Hi!
There could be several reasons due to which the thread keeps bunching up underneath. 

It may be due to tangling of upper thread. Remove the thread completely from the machine, use correct size spool cap for the size of the thread spool, re-thread the machine, now remove the bobbin and make sure the bobbin is threaded properly in the shuttle race. Remove any loose threads or lint in the shuttle race.


You could be holding the needle thread too tight. Hold the thread lightly to keep the end from going down into the shuttle.
The needle could be thread incorrectly. Thread the needle eye from the front to the back.
The needle could be bent or improperly inserted. Install a new needle with the flat side of the needle facing the back.

Please rate the solution as FixYa and revert for any clarification.

Thanks
Rylee

Singer Quantum XL 3400. How do I adjust the presser foot to decrease pressure when quilting several layers?


The owner's manual would most likely have the information. If there is an adjustment is is most likely on the top left of the machine or on the left side of the cover (over the needlebar).

If you are sewing slick fabric that shifts under the presser foot, try using a walking foot or a roller foot.

How to sew buttons on a Singer 2273

Something I do when sewing on buttons is to stick the button to the fabric with glue stick (don't worry, it washes out). Just be very careful when setting up the stitch width to make sure the needle doesn't hit the button. Turn the handwheel by hand first to make sure it is set right. Then sew slowly & carefully with the machine. Finish off with a dab of Fray Check on the back of the stitches to lock the thread.

I am trying to find a manual for my sewing machine. It was left to me by a relative but no operating manual


Search the internet for:

Manufacturer + Model + the word "Manual"

A sewing machine should be able to sew various fabrics, not just cotton. It probably needs a good cleaning and oiling and possibly adjustment by a sewing technician.

HOW DO I GET INK STAINS OUT OF A WHITE COTTON SHIRT?


Rubbing alcohol or methylated spirits (denatured alcohol) from the drugstore or hardware store are ideal to remove ink stains, as long as the stains have not set. The alcohol neutralizes the pigment in the ink so it disappears. Either soak a washable garment in rubbing alcohol or methylated spirits, then wash as normal,[2] or use the following process:
  • Dip a clean cotton swab into rubbing alcohol.
  • Dab at the soaked up ink mark with the cotton swab (bud) or small sponge.
  • Repeat this each time with a fresh cotton swab or sponge, as many times as needed.
  • Dip another fresh cotton swab or sponge into cold water and dab the area to remove the alcohol from the fabric. For best results, let the fabric dry before trying to remove the ink stains again. Rubbing alcohol works best on a dry fabric, but after each application you must rinse it with water. The process of removing heavy ink stains is a lengthy, cyclical process of blot, rinse and dry.
  • Allow the area to dry. Wash the garment as normal.
cheers

New Singer 1507 user - cotton jamming everytime


try this link for a free manual just in case you don't have one
http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/36952a1312a6d8436174ef874f3662471a946b64.pdf
if the fabric is real light weight you may have to use a stablizer
also check to make sure the needle is the right one for the fabric being sewed..
make sure the bobbin is turned the correct direction, try putting the bobbin in the opposite direction..
if the machine keeps jamming, take it back up where you bought it and show them what it's doing and see if they can help you..

My singer HD 110 will sew a bit then suddenly the needle will slow down to a stop & the handwheel seems stuck, yet the motor is still running.


Hello there! Make sure your pattern selector is compatible with the presser foot. Good idea to test with a straight stitch setting: Tension: 4. Width:4-5. Length 5 after you insert a new needle and re-thread machine. Your previous needle may have become bent when machine malfunctioned. Use fabric compatible with needle size. Always raise presser foot when threading! Then always lower presser foot before sewing. Remember to use blue tip scarf needles with synthetic fabric silk thread 50. Purster thread 50, mercerized cotton thread 50-60; #11 or #9 for fine or lightweight fabric with silk thread 50 or fine Pollyester thread; #18 leather needle for leather, #14 - 16 denim . Jimmy Sweep out shuttle carefully with small brush for broken threads and lint.

Dark stains on some clothes after drying


I had this same problem. I turned out to be the seal around the drum. You have to remove the drum and put in another seal. Not real hard to do. You can order the seal from sears and I think the glue came with it. Just have to remove the lint vent screws and then the top lifts off. then remove the screws to the front panel. Hold the drum because it will fall. Unhook the belt. Remember how it connects. Then take the drum off and remove the seal and as much leftover glue and fabric. Glue the new seal on and let dry. I did overnight. It should have directions. then replace everything. just make the seal is on the same way you took it off so look at everthing before you remove anything. Once the seal was replaced no more stains.
