Question about Sewing Machines
I just ned to put in a zipper and I can't remember how to change the needle position.
I have a Bernina 1630+. Go to your main screen where you select straight stitch. Up in the top right side there will be a line of little rectangles all in a line.
Use your scroll bar to select any of these other rectangles. This should move your needle to the left or right in small increments. Usually one setting in from the right is about 1/4" for quilting. When you turn your machine off everything resets to a straight needle position in the middle again.
Hope this helps.

Not sure, but if this is the one with the track ball, try pushing in on it to activate needle position.

I have a Bernina Virtuosa so not the same machine - but this may help. There is an icon on the front of the machine - it is a needlepoint pointing at a dot in an oval - there are arrow buttons on either side. These move the needle left or right of center and it shows on LED screen. I checked mine just now and if you turn machine off and on it resets to center automatically. Hope this helps - Happy Sewing!!

If you can pull the needle bar down manually and it springs back up, the basting clutch is stuck. By someone who knows how, it's a very easy fix. I would guide you here, but I don't know how to explain it. Plus, you have to be very careful not to damage the spring loaded clutch.

sometimes its just the little things that stop your sewing project; so annoying isnt' it.
According to the manual I've found, this stitch width inner knob is turned to move the needle position. The outter part controls the zig zag width, so just move the inner knob to move the needle.
Hope that makes sense to you. Good luck finishing your project.

Depends on the machine, and if the needle position can be changed. If it can't, you probably want something like this: <http://www.sewingmachinesplus.com/j-200342003.php?gclid=CP7S5r-khL4CFc5ffgod9GUAlg> The green button thing on the back is a setscrew that lets you move the foot relative to the needle, rather than the needle relative to the foot.
