I have a Elna air electronic 68, I am not able to use different function. Like thr preprogrammed.


Your AE 68 will have three dials across the front, from L-R, stitch selector, stitch width and stitch length. To sew any stitch with a sidewise needle movement, you will need to turn the stitch selector to that stitch on the selector, then turn the stitch width to between 3 and 4 and the stitch length to a similar setting, adjusting to get the stitch formation you need. To sew with the discs, set all the dials to zero, then insert a cam into the Elnagraph on top of the machine. Then turn the selector to the disc icon, and the stitch length around to the "S" and stitch width to 4.

Don't use reverse if using the elnagraph stitches.

The User Manual does not have a complete stitch guide. Does my Huskystar 207 have a stretch stich?


FWIW, a stretch stitch is simply a stitch that stitches forward a few stitches and then reverses for a couple and then stitches forward again. Having had a machine with a stretch stitch, I found that using a zig-zag is just as effective and uses much less thread as well as less time at the machine. If the fabric is very stretchy, you can merely decrease the stitch length and increase the stitch width to give the stitch enough space to expand with the fabric without popping.

How can i change the stitch type


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.

How do I correct stitch length mechanism to produce 6 stitches per inch?


the stitch length is governed by the cam action connected to the walking foot
that means that the stitch length is governed by the amount of material that is pulled through in the period of time that the needle comes up and goes down
normally the cam action is set by the stitch length lever/ reverse lever
if there is a necessity for a longer stitch, the cam would have to be changed on the drive shaft underneath
That will require a discussion with a sewing machine mechanic to determine if there are cams or other linkages that can be fitted to alter the stitch length for the manufactured maximum

What does C4 mean in knitting


I believe it means a 4 stitch cable or a stitch made with 4 threads. I found this on a knitting website and it might help:

"A 4-stitch cable will be made with 4 stitches, a 6-stitch cable with 6 stitches and so on. Most of the time these sets of stitches are divided equally.
For the 4-stitch cable the first 2 stitches are slipped purlwise onto a cable needle or double pointed needle whichever you prefer. You will knit the next two stitches on your left needle, and then knit the two stitches from the cable needle. The knitting stitches are crossed over each other and you have created a nice little cable stitch."

Here is a YouTube video for the stitch: How to Knit The 4 Stitch Cable

My new Singer machine ("Curvy") purchased last week (3/2014) has a page on stretch stitches. The way the book is written, it lists Straight Stretch Stitch on the same page as Ric Rac, HOneycomb, and...


A zig-zag is also a stretch stitch. Usually, a "built-in" stretch stitch will stitch forward a couple and then stitch backward and then stitch forward again (time consuming and uses a lot of thread--but suitable if that's what you want). Whatever you are sewing, whether it is a seam or finished raw edge and the fabric is stretch, you will need to use a stretch or zig-zag. A straight stitch will pop the threads as soon as the fabric has to give.

You can test your stitches on some scrap fabric and see what looks best.

An Over-edge stitch is just that, just a stitch over the fabric edge. It probably would not be suitable for sewing a seam.

Stitch width knob


What's the model? Do you have the stitch selector set on straight stitch, or on a stitch with a width component, like a blind hem stitch?
Some machines consider straight stitch to be a zigzag stitch of width=0, while others have separate settings for a straight stitch and a zigzag (or other) stitch.

Why straight stitch will not work but zigzag and herringbone stitches work on my machine.


it sounds like the machine needs to be checked at a sewing
machine shop to see what's wrong with the cam's or gear
that makes the stitches
