Most likely the stitch length is set to a very small stitch. The higher the number, the longer the stitch. If not that, then the feed dogs are not advancing as they should. If it is an older mechanical machine, something like this often happens because the machine has not been thoroughly cleaned and oiled regularly. The old oil dries up and restricts the moving parts.

I am new at sewing, my machine is sewing small stitches and then larger stitches, I need it to just sew small sitches


Check to make sure the stitch length gauge isn't loose allowing it to jump between longer & shorter stitches, or that it isn't set on variable stitching. Something that could create this too is if you're holding the fabric too tightly so that the fabric feed doesn't pull the fabric through smoothly & easily - allow the machine to pull the fabric through on it's own and control the speed with your footfeed, not your hands. Hope this helps! Have a good time!

Buttonholing - Bernina 950 (semi-industrial)


This sewing machine looks exactly like the Berninas that I own, although my are not industrial. You just use the dial to make each side of the buttonhole, only having to set the stitch length to super small. The way you make buttonholes is this:

Think of the buttonhole as a square-ish capital O, with the center of the bottom of the O as the point where the button shank will lie when buttoned. Place the marked buttonhole area under the buttonhole foot, with this bottom point directly under the foot, squarely in the center of the 'hole'.
-Turn the dial to 1 and the long left edge will sew in zig zag stitches; stop the machine at the top of the O.
-Then turn the dial to 2 and the top edge of the O will sew; stop the machine after half a dozen stitches.
-Turn the dial to 3 and the right edge will sew; stop the machine at the bottom of the O.
-Turn the dial to 4 and the bottom edge of the O will sew; stop the machine after half a doze stitches.
-Turn the dial to 5 and run half a dozen stitches; this is a line of straight stitches that will 'tie off' the buttonhole.

Try this with a plain piece of fabric. Just put the fabric under the foot and dial away. You'll see how the stitches stitch.

I'll send a copy of instructions from my manual to you if you want. Email me at: pink8006@yahoo.com.

Singer futura ce-200 problem, pattern mis-alignment


I have had similar problems in the past.
Do you hear a noise from the embroidery unit when the misalignment occurs ? If so, I suspect that your issue may be that you have some resistance under the hoop. Is there extra material that may be rubbing on the machine or catching somewhere. I have found that if I use some masking tape to keep all of the extra material from hitting any other parts of the machine or dragging under the edge of the hoop this error does not occur. FYI: I also stopped using the "optimize stitch speed" option at the same time. I believe that material dragging was causing the problem, but I still wonder about the stitch speed optimization feature.

Free motion quilting Viking Designer 1


I had the same dissatisfaction when I switched from the 1+ to the Designer 1. After some trials I am now happy. You need the springy free motion foot. Part #413 03 76-45. You take off the white shank and screw it on with the metal bar over the needle hook. In the set menu turn the SensorQ on, the free motion on, select stitch 1 from menu V and drop the feed dogs. It also makes a big difference to use the straight stitch throat plate which just has a small hole for the needle to go through. One other hint is that I often have to reduce my needle tension 3 or 4 steps. Hope it works for you.
