What size needle should I use for doing a rolled hem on satin fabric on my Janice memory craft 3500?


I would use a small needle, like a 70 so the needle holes are minimal.

Have a Kenmore 1357. Was working perfectly until I began sewing satin ruffle onto fleece. Seems to siege. Needle won't even try to go into material. Just goes to top of presser foot and stops.


Is it a mechanical machine (not computerized)? Did you oil the internal metal parts that rub against other metal parts? With an older mechanical machine, frequently the old oil turns to goo and sticks things rather than lubricates. Use only fresh good quality sewing machine oil. Hand rotate the wheel and place 2 drops of oil every place metal rubs metal (including the bobbin area). To help loosen things, direct hot air from a handheld hairdryer into the interior of the machine.

This process was used on an older Kenmore that had totally frozen, but it was working again within 15 minutes.

WHAT SIZE OF NEEDLES DOES IT USE!


Hi Rafael,

I assume this is a home sewing machine, not industrial.

The size of needle depends on the fabric you want to sew. Lightest needles are used for thinnest materials and heaviest are used for heavier materials like canvas.

The Singer site has a nice explanation about fabric weights and sewing machine needles: http://www.singerco.com/sewing-resources/machine-needles

Where can i find needles for a singer 306k machine ?


What type of material are you going to be sewing? Sew-Classic has 10 needle packages of the size 12 and size 14 needles for the Singer 306 for light (not fine) and medium weight material. (It's a 206x13 needle for the single needle. The twin needle is a 306x3.) See http://shop.sew-classic.com/206x13-Sewing-Machine-Needles_c46.htm .

http://www.allbrands.com/products/15221-schmetz-german-206x13-flat-shank-needles-100-size has some notes on alternative needles. The site has boxes of 100 size 14 and size 12 needles. (The size 14 needles are out of stock due to delays on the manufacturer's side.) https://www.college-sewing.co.uk/206X13-SIZE-90-PACK-OF-10-NEEDLES (size 14) needles in stock.

Unfortunately, I do not see any twin needles available for the 306K. I hope this helps.

How do i know that iam using a correct needle size.


Your needle size will be governed by how heavy the material you are sewing. The lighter the material than the smaller the needle size.

Why is my brother ls2160 is sewing fine on cotton but not on the material I am using. Its a stretchy silky kind of material. What am i doing wrong?


You may need to use a walking foot with your machine as stretchy fabrics are hard for the feed dogs to 'grip' and pull the material through under the needle.... you will probably need to change needle as well... there should be a helpful video on YouTube that will tell u all about sewing with stretchy fabrics and how a 'walking foot' works... hope that helps.

Bernette 66 is breaking needles by hitting the pressure foot


exactly what kind of material are you sewing and what size needle are you using?

There is no such thing as a "universal" needle, you really need to match the needle to the material.

What size sewing needles and brand are right for my riccar 2600 model?


It should tell you in the owners manual.
http://www.riccar.com/ftp/whitepapers/2600-Owners-Manual.pdf
Most needles are suitable for all machines. The size of the needle depends on the thickness of the material you are trying to sew. Usually the finer the material, the smaller the needle.

There is one way out. Give the sewing m/c a thorough servicing job, Clear all the pieces of cloth/fabric/threads, etc Remove the bobbin and load afresh. Clear out the toothed sliders which pulls the cloth while stitching. the thread being used for stitching passes a sort of loop, the tension being controlled by how much the pressure the spring can exert such that depending on the material being stitched. Specially after stitching satin, which is tricky material to stitch in a sewing m/c since the cloth is slippery. Also clear sewing jam and the metal teeth like rack which pushes the cloth for the next stitch to start. This area if cleaned up properly and a little bit of oiling on the spring loader and the spindle assembly which moves up & down...............................sudeep
