Question about Singer 3116 Simple
I am sewing binding on a blanket and I want to straight stitch to the corner, turn and zigzag back to continue around the blanket.
Yes, you can do it. Stop the machine, select your other stitch and then carry on sewing. Do not select another stitch with the machine running.It can become a expensive excercise.

Yes all you have to do is stop with the needle in the fabric and pivot on the needle at the corner.. Raise the presser foot to allow the needle position to change as you select the new stitch. Then just continue with the zigzag stitch.

I can't tell whether you mean straight stitching and then turning your work 180 degrees to stitch atop the straight stitches in zig-zag, or continuing around the corner of your straight stitched side using zig-zag. But you can do either. You can mix up straight and zig-zag stitching at will.
Just ease up to a stop, ensuring the needle is positioned down inside the work when you stop.
Lift the foot.
Adjust to your desired stitch setting.
Lower the foot.
Turn the wheel toward you manually to ensure the stitches will be placed where you want them, and
Slowly engage the power again (via foot or thigh lever).
Hope this helps.

Well, of COURSE you can! As a matter of fact, I often do that to baste something in place that I want to put a zigzag or decorative stitch on.
