On a sewing machine, it would be the stitch design selector in conjunction with the stitch length and stitch width selections. For a zig-zag stitch, a stitch width selection higher than zero will give a wide stitch.

Tl2000 and it is skipping stitches while quilting. I have changed the needle. I used needles 14 16 & 18 I have cleaned the machine. When I sew seams I have no problems.


Have you changed the type of needle--top stitch, embroidery, microtex? Sometimes that will help. Also, my skipped stitches occur in FMQ because the fabric is moving too fast for the machine speed or I have a jerky movement. It helps me to try slowing down the fabric movement or speed up the machine and practice making smooth, consistent movement. I've never done FMQ with a needle larger than an 80/12, so you might try a smaller needle to reduce the fabric grabbing the thread.

The stiches on my machine change size. What am I doing wrong.


When you say they change size, what are you referring to? If you change the type of fabric on the sewing advisor the stitches will change in relationship to the type of fabric selected which can cause them to change size. The other issue may be in feeding the fabric to the machine. If the fabric gets caught on something and is not feeding freely, it can cause the stitches to elongate.

How do I change stitches on silvercrest sewing machine model875ouk


Do you mean the size of stitch or the type of stitch ?. Size is usually controlled by a dial with numbers on it, or a lever with numbers on it. Metric machines will have stitch sizes in millimetres, or 'mm', so maybe 0, 2,2.5, and so on. Others will have stitch sizes ranging from 0 to 20 per inch, with increments including 8, 10, and 12.

If it is the type of stitch, again, usually a dial controls this. It may have symbols on it, that resemble the stitch. Zig zag for example, nearly always indicated by Z shapes. If you have a pic of the machines front, fairly close up , I could tell you more. Some dials need to be pushed in to work, some need to be pulled out.

Why won't it do decorative stitches?


Have you selected the proper stitch. Look at the decorative stitch line 1,2,3,or 4, then the number above the stitch. Your screen should say 1:24 for line one, stitch 24. Make sure you are using the recommended foot. Embroidery unit is disengaged. Then makes sure you have selected the proper weave or thickness of material button. If it still won't sew, try a different type of fabric button and try that. This will change the tension. The tension could be too tight or too loose for that stitch.

How do I get the stitch length to be consistent? It changes with speed


consistent stitch length depends primarily on tension settings. there are 2 different tension settings on all machines. 1. upper thread tension. 2. bobbin thread tension. since these work together to create the correct stitch length+width, having either of these adjusted inappropriately can significantly impair stitch quality. "knowing' your machine has a lot to do with knowing how tight or loose the tension should be for BOTH settings. the settings will be different for each type of stitch, for each type of needle used, and for each type of thread used, meaning tensions will need to be re-adjusted after each change. in other words, the setting for a medium-width zig-zag with a size 10 needle using mercerized cotton thread to sew light-weight canvas will be completely different than the settings for a regular straight stitch using a size 8 ball tip needle using polyester thread to sew silky lingerie material.

Have you turned the stitch width and stitch length selectors back to zero each before trying to change the stitch selector wheel? Really important to always do this.

Have you resolved this issue now?

Kenmore sewing machine #16227 needle thread making big loops on wrong side of fabric. Changed needle, cleaned, adjusted/readjusted and readjusted needle and bobbin tension. Will sew a decent stitch...


It is most likely because you have it on a type of stitch but did not switch the didstance that you want the zig zag to be. Just change you stitch or your distance.
