My Jenome 385.4052LX200 isn't sewing most of the stretch stitch patterns, sews just a straight line.


Have you asked Janome, online? Or the seller of your machine? Most sellers will bend over backward, to help you with your purchase.

Instructions for making a buttonhole


The method will depend on your make & model machine, although the vintage sewing machine buttonhole method will work on all zig-zag machines (just requires manually measuring and adjusting the stitch length & width during the process):

Be sure there is a stabilizer between the fabric where the buttonhole is located so the fabric will not stretch or tear.

Why is my stitch all wavy on the bottom when i sew knits?


What you are getting is what's called lettuce edging.
How to Sew Lettuce Hem Two Ways

You could unconsciously be holding the fabric back when it is feeding through the machine so you are building in stretch. Or, the presser foot pressure could so high that the presser foot is actually pushing the fabric in front so it is building in stretch. If you have a presser foot pressure adjustment on your machine, you might try loosening it some. It would be helpful to use a roller foot or walking foot (if you have one) that will not impede the movement of the fabric but instead help the fabric move through evenly. Also, lengthen the stitch length and add a zig-zag. That will give the garment some give, but if the fabric does stretch, it will also go back to flat once you remove it from the machine.

Looking for free manual for Kenmore 12511. or instructions on how to a just machine to sew stretchy material


Sears carries a lot of Kenmore manuals, however, there is usually a fee. Have never seen one for no cost.

BTW--be sure to use jersey or stretch stitch needles (ball point) for knit fabrics. You probably should use either a zig-zag or stretch stitch so the threads don't "pop" when the fabric overstretches the thread.

search the internet for "sewing stretch fabric" or "sewing knits"

Elna 2005 I don't have the manual. Which setting is for the stretch stitch?


A special stretch stitch is not required to sew stretchy fabric. All one needs is a zig-zag that is wide enough and close together enough to allow the fabric to stretch without breaking the stitching thread. (Test it on a piece of scrap fabric you are using, give it a good tug and see if the thread breaks.)

NOTE: be sure to use a ball-point needle. A sharp needle will tend to cut the fabric threads and your stretch fabric will eventually develop holes and runs commonly found in knits.

There doesn't appear to be a manual for your machine, however, you can usually find a manual close to your machine model and the instructions will be similar enough to suffice. Perhaps you will find one with instructions for sewing stretch fabric:

How do I stretch sew on this machine the stitch is either too tight or looping and what do I put the feed balance dial on + or - to sew this stretchy fabric


IF YOU HAVE A ZIG ZAG STITCH, SET THIS ON A LONG NARROW LENGTH AND USE THIS FOR STRETCHY FABRICS. ALSO USE A NEEDLE FOR STRETCH FABRICS OR A BALL POINT NEEDLE, IF YOU HAVE ONE, AS THIS IS BEST.
