Can you sew upholstery covers on a bernina 750qe


You probably can, however, if I had this nice Bernina, I wouldn't risk it. Instead, go find an old metal, mechanical sewing machine, like a Nelco, Singer, Kenmore. I have an old metal Nelco and a Pfaff 260 that I use to mend horse equipment.

Threading a nelco 5102


Machines generally thread similarly. Just be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the top thread.

Do you have experience with a Nelco Sierra 234F Serger? How is the quality of stitching, how easy is it to use and problem free is this machine? Are you still able to get parts for the machine?


As far as I am aware, Nelco hasn't been made for quite a few years--probably since sometime in the 1970's is my guess. I have an old Nelco sewing machine that is a tank of a machine and sews nearly anything I throw at it. But for finer work, I prefer my Bernina--probably because it has more stitch selections, sews a straighter stitch, and I know it better.

If you aren't able to have the machine demonstrated to you and you can test it to your satisfaction, I'd be reluctant (Actually, that goes for any used machine, not just Nelco!) The following may be helpful:

FWIW, I have an old Nelco J-28 that was passed on to me by someone who started quilting with it and advanced on to a career making wonderful creatively designed scenic quilts. It is a basic machine with straight stitch and a few zig-zag stitches. It's a tough metal mechanical machine and has been used to repair horse equipment (fly masks, etc.) and upholstery. The only thing that is perplexing to me is that it is a left needle position machine, ie the bobbin loads on the left side, the needle faces the left side, and the needle home position is on the left side and swings from the left to the right. All my other machines are center needle position so it takes some adjustment whenever switching to the Nelco--but that is a personal thing and in no way reflects on the machine and its usability. The good thing--since it is a mechanical machine, it can be maintained with frequent oiling using fresh good quality sewing machine oil and regular cleaning.

The best advice ever provided--Always Raise the presser foot when threading the upper thread and make sure the machine is threaded correctly.

How to thread the Nelco A2?


To find a user's manual, search the internet for:
Manufacturer + Model + the word "Manual"

Search YouTube videos for threading tutorials:

With your Nelco, be sure that you install the needle properly. Frequently, Nelco machines take the needle with the flat side facing toward the throat of the machine--not toward the read like most other machines. The upper thread will thread through the needle's eye from the left toward the right. They also are a left needle position machine--meaning, the standard position of the needle when sewing straight stitch is at the left side of the presser foot, not center like most other machines.

My mother"ssewing machine willnot pick


I saw Nelco on this website http://www.sewusa.com/Sewing_Machine_Manuals/Nelco_Sewing_Machines.htm

purchasing /obtaining a manual is always very helpful when working with a sewing machine.

However, simple stuff to check, is the needle in the right way, with the scarf (groove) to the back?

Is the needle new and the right type of needle for this machine? Sorry, I don't know a lot about Nelco however, most machines use 130/705H system needles, but there is always the exception, especially with something 40+ years old so it pays to check it out.

And lastly timing, the needle needs to be down at the lowest point as the rotary hook comes around to catch the thread. If this isn't happening, then it could be that the timing is out on the machine. It's never happened to me but it can happen. But I'd suggest you try changing needle, check threading path and bobbin firstly.

Good luck.
