SOURCE: White Superlock 2000 ATS--setting for lettuce edge?

Hi, getting a lettuce edging on knit is not in the settings . To get this effect, you need to stretch the fabric as you feed it thru the machine. Try it on a scrap first to get the right effect, then try it for real,

How to sew Lycra on my necchi 522? I'm using a stretch needle. It goes up and down, fabric advances, but does not pick up bobbin thread - so no stitches!


Knit fabric sometimes plays a little havoc with machines. Be sure you are using a brand new needle. Also, ballpoint/jersey needles will usually work better with knit fabrics like t-shirt fabric. For very stretchy fabric like Lycra, you might want to try a Stretch Needle.

If it still will not stitch, check your machine on regular woven fabric with a universal needle. Could be your machine is slightly out of time, especially if you have recently sewn over & hit a pin.

How do you start embroidering a design where the thread breaks on a Bernina Artista 180 sewing/embroidery machine?


Most machines have a stitch counter, stitch forward and step back features. Check your manual and embroidery machine's screens for this.

IN case you have misplaced your manual I found this one for you. It's big so allow time to download.

When doing appliqueson a shirt, there small holes all around it. If you stretch stretch the shirt afterwards, it tears. What am I doing wrong?


Wrong needle perhaps? if the shirt is a knit then you should be using a ball point needle to sew it, probably a size 70 or 80 for jersey weight. You probably should back the project with a tear away stabiliser too to give the machine grip and hold the fabric while stitching.

And finally, check that you are using a good quality machine embroidery thread as these are glossy, fill the satin stich nicely, and are designed for this purpose.

After lowering the feed teeth I am unable to raise them manually with the dial. They do raise with a mechanical "clank" as I begin to sew. The feed teeth are on the extreme right off the slot openings....


If you have been embroidering, the feed teeth will raise themselves next time you do regular sewing with a clunking noise - not really loud, but you can hear it. The feed teeth on my Des.1 are on the far right-hand side too so I think that this normal. So long as they are not fouling on the coverplate slots and the material is being fed properly by the feed teeth, your machine is fine.

I HAVE A BROTHER ULT2003D SEWING/EMBRODERY MACHINE IT CAME WITH NO MANNUAL IM ABOUT TO EMB. A 100% POLYESTER SHIRT AND DONT NO WHAT TENTION TO SET IT ON THANK YOU C.C.


I would try embroidering on a scrap of like material to get the tension you want. My Brother (different model) manual doesn't say any specific tension setting for embroidering but just says to set the tension right for the fabric to be worked. If the fabric is stretchy, I suggest using a little looser tension than say cotton, just make sure it doesn't pucker the fabric.

Pockets


Dear sewer:
The only way I have found is to take the pocket off the shirt and re-sew it after you have finished embroidering it. Notrub
