I altered the stitch to zigzag and now it wont stitch straight or anything!

try changing the needle
rethread the machine top & bobbin
make sure the bobbin is not warped or damaged
adjust the top tension one number or letter higher till the stitch looks normal
if these suggestion don't help then the machine needs to be serviced

The zig zag stich on my Janome My Style 100 seems to be skipping stitches...

Yip go to the shed pick up the biggest and heaviest hammer you can find (I prefer a sledge hammer) you don't need to unscrew anything just make ure that it is unplugged from the mains and hit it as hard as you can ,it is important that you are standing at the side of it so the parts don't hit you ,wa la now it is completely goosed so when you take it to the recycle site it is of no use to any one else ,I find this very stress relieving ,

How can I program a full name into my 1+Husquvarna Sewing machine?

I have the #1 and it should be similar in programming if not the same.

Instructions for the #1 (1200) -- Programming Block Letters
(one model down from the #1+ Husqvarna)
From the machine instruction page for letters and numbers

  • .Fabric Woven-medium, stitch & tear
  • .Enter: Woven-medium on your sewing advisor
  • .Consult Info display: Presser Foot B

Insert Cassette B
  • .Touch SELECT function to PROG
  • .Advance to an empty memory
  • (->) means arrow: .Touch H-> U-> S-> Q-> V-> A-> R-> N-> A (STOP) -> REP

  • .Place Stitch & Tear against the wrong side of your fabric.
  • .Stitch the word HUSQVARNA. Easy!
  • .Now, program your name and today's date. Stitch on your sample.

Smaller sizes of letters
You can program a number of letter sizes by - the width before entering the letter. You may want to enter the first letter of a name at 6.0 width and the other letters narrower.

Correcting Errors
You may clear any single stitch but the first one on a program. When the cursor is under the first stitch and you touch CLR, the entire program is erased.

NOTE: The cursor designates the first letter to be sewn.

How do I make a "space" in between the lettering. How do I enlarge to do stippling.

with the lettering mode, there should be a code number you program in for each letter, number and for a space as well.

Stippling is usually done by free motion stitching with a special foot so its not actually a stitch pattern, just a straight stitch that you form into the stippled pattern by moving the item as it is stitched.

I have pfaff machine model # pfaff 230, problem is that machine cant get straight stitch, i dont have any operating manual , kindly advice how this problem solve, i shall be very thank ful to you if you...


It's just a fact that any machine that only does a straight stitch has a better straight stitch than any machine that will also zig zag. The more things they do, the less perfectly they'll do each one in most cases. A plain zig zag will have a better straight stitch than a machine that also does reverse-cycle stitches. The thing is that the more play they have to build into the needle area, the harder it is to keep it from moving slightly this way and that way when you don't want it to, like on a straight stitch.

You may also be having a combined problem when you're sewing very thick seams. If your entire presser foot is not perfectly flat on your item, it will not sew as well as if it were. This is even worse when you get to a junction of several seams, and your presser foot may be at an odd angle to get up and over the junction. You can use a Hump Jumper to help, or even a folded piece of something, but it's still not going to be as perfect as if you were on a completely flat surface. You can use a Sewing Hammer to pound things as flat as possible before stitching, which will help some. You may also get help with a different type of foot although it doesn't really sound like that's your problem.

If you have a control box, push the buttons so all the lights go off. Something is making the machine back-tack. I have seen the problem be a mechanical issue. In that case you would be better off taking it to the shop.
