Help plse, after threading it dont make the overlocking stitches. New machine, help with right way to thread machine and the smaller detail of threading.


Your machine is either not threaded correctly, or the individual threads have not been threaded in order. Be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the machine. You must follow the instructions exactly or the machine will most likely never work properly. Can you at least get a training class on your machine? A class is indispensable, especially when it comes to using a serger.

Even if it is not the same model, these instructions may be helpful.

Problem with an overlocker that does not overlock


You may need to rethread all the threads because most sergers need to be threaded in the right sequence. I looks like this one has to be threaded starting at the right and progressing left.

Sould i use overlock thead on my brother embroidery/sewing maching


It is, of course, possible to use overlock thread in a typical machine. Generally speaking, you only want to use overlock thread to overlock ("serge"). The reason for this if that while typical all-purpose or sewing machine thread has 3 strings wound together, overlock thread has only 2. When you are using 3, 4, or even 8 threads at a time with a serger, each strand doesn't necessarily have to be as strong as when you are sewing on a machine with only 2 threads. So, you physically could use the thread, yes, but it will not be near as strong, and you will probably have issues with breakage while sewing as well. The cost savings you think you may be saving by using overlock thread (which is, after all, considerably cheaper per yard), well soon be overrun with extra time sewing due to broken threads and overall less quality in your garment as it will be made weaker.

Bernina Overlocker 134D trheading problem Dont nouwn how to trhead my machine


I would suggest that you drag out the manual (or buy one if you don't have it) and then go to You-tube and search on threading overlockers and watch a video or two. The threading techniques are same for most machines, you need to thread loopers, then needles through all the thread guides. Open the front flap of your machine and check if there is a threading diagram there and follow it. MAKE SURE YOU ALWAYS RAISE THE THREAD AERIAL TO FULL HEIGHT BEFORE YOU USE THE MACHINE.

Also make sure you use the correct needles for it, usually EL705 rather than the standard sewing machine 130/705H. It has a groove down the front which helps with stitch formation.

I would also suggest that you hunt down a local dealer and enquire about classes on cleaning, threading and using an overlocker as it will help you so much.

And if your machine accessories are not all there, then invest in tweezers and the fine wire threading up gadgets, they really help getting the thread into needles.

Here is a threading guide - http://www.singerco.com/pdf/14SH654_threading.pdf

Before you start, raise the thread antenna to it's highest position.

Open/set the tensions to zero.

Raise the presser foot.

Turn the handwheel until the loopers are at the highest position.
