Question about Elna Sewing Machines
Posted by Anonymous on
This sounds like an overlocker/serger machine you are using? if the fabric is catching on the overlocking tongue it could be a number of factors, have you lifted the top cutting blade out of the way and forgot to put it back into place? That would be my first thought, the top and bottom blade move against each other cutting the fabric. Rolled hemming usually requires the blade to be set on about 2, or middle of its setting range, the stitch finger is pulled back out of the stitching area, top looper thread is loosened off and bottom looper thread is tightened up, resulting in the top looper thread wrapping around the edge of the fabric and pulling the cut edge down under within the seam, forming the rolled hem.

i dont have a baby lock but on my machine i change from rolled hem to flat needle plate
or change setting to n from r also loosen lower looper tension as rolled hem requires a tight lower looper tension.
hope this helps you

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.

Satin is a slippery fabric besides being thin, this is when a walking foot or PFAFF's IDT system help feed both top and bottom sheets. You could also be using a sharp needle vs a ballpoint. Change your presser feet with either a roller or teflon coated.

There is a definite art in doing a rolled hem at the best of times and on a delicate fabric you have to be good, there is no way of explaining you need to be shown.
