What should the tension settings be for Elna Club 4D overlocker


Hi Nikita86,

Do you perhaps still have a scanned copy of the Club 4D overlocker?

I need a manual for the elna stella air electronic type 57 sewing machine


You could try www.diplodocs.com or www.scribed.com, I think I've seen it on one of those sites. Is the 57 the TX model? If so, its got the most stitches of the Stella models, there was the ZZ, TSP, SP and TX, nice machine. If you can't find a free one you should be able to buy one from one of the sites like www.sewingpartsonline.com or www.whitesewingcenter.com

Elna stella air electronic


you could try www.Scribed.com or www.diplodocs.com for this one free, otherwise pretty sure it can be purchased at www.sewingpartsonline.com or relics which is www.sewing-machine-manuals.com.

Should be a blue or brown cover I think from memory.

What can I use for a blanket stitch on this machine?


A blanket stitch is traditionally done with a large needle and wool to a folded edge of fabric and is often done about 1cm wide, most sewing machines can't swing the needle this wide or take the heavy gauge thread you need for the blanket stitch effect, its a hand done thing.

I've got an Elna 634 overlocker, and want to turn


Just trim the fabric to the desired hem length plus one inch, then overlock around this raw edge with thread close colour match to the fabric.

You then have the choice of either stitching around with a stretch stitch on your sewing machine, or hand sewing.

Being lycra shouldn't change how you hem them unless the trouser leg is extremely close fitting and the hem seam is going to be under tension.

My first choice would be using a twin needle in straight stitch from top side but this finish can pop/break if the hem is under tension. But perfect for most knit hems.

If you hand sew then you can turn up hem allowance and put a length of fusible hemming web inside the hem allowance and press it to hold. Then do a back stitch hand sew around to hold hem in place.

If you sew with the regular sewing machine, then use either the stretch stitch or a very small zig zag, and a ball point or stretch needle.

On ready to wear you would see a coverstitch hem but your overlocker doens't have this stitch.

HI, I have an old Elna Stella, bought in Australia in 1983. The shank that holds the presser foot onto the column keeps slipping forward. This causes the needle to strike the presser foot at the back edge...


Are all your sewing feet in one piece that screw on? I'm struggling understanding what your foot is actually doing Lindy; is it because the nut loosens up quickly? or is it possible that the foot you are using is not an Elna foot?

Elna later changed to "Low Shank" clip on feet with the Air Electronic range and these should be interchangeable with your Stella. I found a good website for this, www.sewingpartsonline.com and he has the "Pressure Foot Shank" which is the later swissmade shank for the swiss made Elnas. I couldn't see a replacement screw to hold on the feet though but a sewing machine dealer might be able to track one down. Or try Ebay, still some swiss Elna stuff out there.

good luck
Carolyn
