The stiches on my machine change size. What am I doing wrong.


When you say they change size, what are you referring to? If you change the type of fabric on the sewing advisor the stitches will change in relationship to the type of fabric selected which can cause them to change size. The other issue may be in feeding the fabric to the machine. If the fabric gets caught on something and is not feeding freely, it can cause the stitches to elongate.

How do I change stitches on silvercrest sewing machine model875ouk


Do you mean the size of stitch or the type of stitch ?. Size is usually controlled by a dial with numbers on it, or a lever with numbers on it. Metric machines will have stitch sizes in millimetres, or 'mm', so maybe 0, 2,2.5, and so on. Others will have stitch sizes ranging from 0 to 20 per inch, with increments including 8, 10, and 12.

If it is the type of stitch, again, usually a dial controls this. It may have symbols on it, that resemble the stitch. Zig zag for example, nearly always indicated by Z shapes. If you have a pic of the machines front, fairly close up , I could tell you more. Some dials need to be pushed in to work, some need to be pulled out.

How do I get the stitch length to be consistent? It changes with speed


consistent stitch length depends primarily on tension settings. there are 2 different tension settings on all machines. 1. upper thread tension. 2. bobbin thread tension. since these work together to create the correct stitch length+width, having either of these adjusted inappropriately can significantly impair stitch quality. "knowing' your machine has a lot to do with knowing how tight or loose the tension should be for BOTH settings. the settings will be different for each type of stitch, for each type of needle used, and for each type of thread used, meaning tensions will need to be re-adjusted after each change. in other words, the setting for a medium-width zig-zag with a size 10 needle using mercerized cotton thread to sew light-weight canvas will be completely different than the settings for a regular straight stitch using a size 8 ball tip needle using polyester thread to sew silky lingerie material.

Skipping stitches


Change the needle; it could be blunt, burred, or a ballpoint on a woven fabric would all cause skipped stitches. If you hand wind the machine through a stitch and can hear popping, or squeaking, its blunt, change it.

A sewing machine needle needs to be replaced after 4-6 hours of sewing, so a new one for each project is a good rule of thumb.

This means that you are putting in the right sized needle for the project too, not just using what was in there from last project.

Invest in a packet of needles in every size, ball point and sharps, microtex, leather, and denim.

there is good information on needles on http://sewing.about.com/od/sewingmachineindex/ig/Sewing-Machine-Needles/Needle-Sizes.--94.htm too.

Inspiration 4205 stitch length won't change


Are you certain that the pattern selector is set for straight stitch and not buttonhole?

Turn the handwheel so that the needle is up and the take-up lever is in it's highest position. Then turn the pattern selector knob through all of the patterns back and forth a few times. Finally, select straight stitch and see if the length works. If not, need to take it to a repair person to determine the course of action.

Size of stitch


Sounds like malfunction with the feeddogs or stitch length balance. Without thread or fabric, turn the handwheel and watch the feeddogs (the toothy looking things under the presser foot which moves the fabric as you sew). The amount of distance they move with each revolution of the handwheel determines the stitch length. Watch to see whether they move from front to back. It may be that they are worn out or that they are just too low to adequately move the fabric as you sew. Take to authorized Husqvarna Viking dealer for repair. This is not something that can be done by the owner. Check Husqvarna Viking website for dealer closest too you.

BOTTOM STITCH IS ALWAYS LOOSE


If the top stitch is loose, then you need to tighten the bobbin tension: if the bottom stitch is loose, tighten the top tension. Hope this helps. It could also be the size needle and thread you are using for a particular fabric. Different fabrics require different notions.

How do i make a buttonhole on this machine?


I do not have a buttonhole foot, but I can tell you how I do it with the zig zag foot on the Singer 132Q machine.

1. Mark the spacing and size for the buttonholes with chalk or marking paper. This consists of a straight line with a perpendicular line at the top and bottom that lets you know how big to make the hole. There is probably a pattern piece to let you know what the spacing should be, and you can get the size of the hole for the top and bottom line by laying the button you are going to use on top of the line you draw with the pattern.

2. Make sure the bobbin has plenty of thread.

3. Put the zig zag foot on the machine.

4. Set the stitch size to 1 or maybe a little less. You want a tight stitch to hold the hole together.

5. Start at the top of the buttonhole with the perpendicular line barely visible in the zig zag foot. Think of it as placing the "T" made by the mark in the "T" made by the opening in the zig zag foot.

6. Set the needle pattern to #1 of the buttonhole pattern (2nd from the top). Make sure it is toward the top of the number to insure you get a wide zig zag stitch. If you are getting a narrow stitch, you may have to fiddle with it, but it will work. Stitch 4-6 times making sure the stitch is wide, and end on the left side of the stitch.

7. Change the needle pattern to #2 of the buttonhole pattern and zig zag stitch down to the bottom mark. Do not pull the fabric or you will stretch the stitch. Make sure your last stitch is on the left hand side.

8. Change the needle pattern to #3 of the buttonhole pattern (same as #1), and zig zag stitch 4-6 times ending on the right side this time. Make sure the stitches are wide.

9. Change the needle pattern to #4 of the buttonhole pattern and straight stitch back to the top mark. Be prepared to hand roll the needle the last few stitches to make sure you do not pass the top stitches you have made.

10. Change the needle pattern to #5 of the buttonhole pattern and zig zag stitch back to the bottom mark. Hand roll the last few stitches and end on the left side.

11. Raise the foot and remove the fabric. You are now ready proceed to the next buttonhole or cut the buttonhole open with a small pair of scissors or a seam ripper. Make sure you do not cut any of your stitches.



Make sure you practice on some scrap fabric of the same thickness (2 layers of fabric plus pellon) to make sure you have the size right before you sew the buttonholes on the garment.

GOOD LUCK.
