Wellllll not sure what model you have but generally it is the same in all of them.....Find the one that looks straight and in dotted lines and place the setting of your machine on this one. see attached photo, it is #1 or #2 depending on how long you want the stitch to be and good luck....:)

What do you have your width set on? Check your manual for the correct settings for different materials. I don't know what machine you have so I cannot be more specific

How to change stich to long stich for gathering?


http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/3e3e5558857ed68836712ac8545abb48178772a5.pdf is the manual for your machine; look at p. 27. You want stitch 00, and then increase the stitch length with the up/down buttons on the control panel.

p. 24 of the pdf covers adjusting the top tension of the machine; you'll have an easier time of gathering if you reduce the top tension about 1-2 number setting.

I have a 12 sticher Kenmore maching that won't lay down the stiches? Everything is threaded but the thread won't go into the fabric


Check the needle, make sure it is not in backwards. Groove in the needle to the front. If you are sewing on a knit you may need a ball point needle/needle for knits.
