Neat zigzag stitches are usually achieved at "2.5" or below.
Closed up zigzag stitches (close together) are referred to as a
satin stitch its likely you will want to set for 1.5 or at most 2. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/user-manuals/3116-singer-parts-SEWING+MACHINE-manual Look for page 40 in the owners book or scroll down and if you see numbers not on the page but on the scroll bar look for 47. It has some great pitures that can help you out.

SOURCE: need to know how to the zig zag stitch on the 132

By turning the bottom dial on the righthand side of the machine, you can change type of stitch. For zig zag, you need to set it to B (seen on the front of the machine). You can adjust the width of the zig zag using the same dial.

SOURCE: ZIG-ZAG NOT WORKING

Make sure your presser foot is tight down. If the needle is going from side to side, it's doing it's job. If the stitches are coming out straight, the material is probably slipping back and forth to center area. The presser will eliminate this.

Some machines will start out by sewing a straight stitch all the way around the buttonhole area first and then will zigzag/satin stitch along the sides. Bar tacks will be the last stitches sewn - hope this helps!

How do I do a basic satin stitch ? My machine only has patterned satin stitches


A satin stitch is a combination of a wide zig-zag and a short stitch length. Set the stitch width to the maximum. Then while stitching, shorten the stitch length until the threads lay next to each other so no fabric shows between the threads but the threads do not overlap. It would help if you have a satin stitch foot so there is space under the presser foot for the extra threads.

Need to do a satin stitch on Bernini 1630


Just set it for a short stitch length and a wide zig-zag. Test it and keep adjusting the stitch length so the thread will not overlap from stitch to stitch but also that the stitches are close enough so no fabric shows between the stitches.

Depends on your machine and the thread you are using. A satin stitch is a zig-zag with the stitch length set so the fabric is not visible between the stitches but the stitches do not overlap.

What number is satin stitch on Piaf quilt expressions 4.0


A satin stitch is simply a zig-zag stitch that is shortened enough so the threads lay next to each other without laying over another but also without any space (fabric) showing between. Keep in mind that the thread weight will cause the satin stitch to differ.

How do I satin stitch h on a Bernina 1130s limited edition?


Satin stitch is a very wide zig-zag stitch with a very short stitch length. I do mine by dropping the feed dogs and guiding the material through by hand (a lot like darning).

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.

When appliqueing in stitch 11 the thread kees looping...


I believe stitch 11 is a zig zag so you are probably decreasing the length to get a satin stitch. You will get a better satin stitch if you select it directly. I think that it is about 29. The machine forms the satin stitch differently than the zig zag and it should look better. If you still get loops on top, you may need to have a qualified technician check the needle to hook clearance. If this distance is too great, the machine skips stitches and you will form loops. Several other adjustments may be needed to get a perfect stitch and a qualified Husqvarna technician should be able to take care of this problem for you.
