SOURCE: Hi. My name is Sue. Could you please let me know

On a shop bought blanket this stitch would be done by a special purpose industrial machine that sews this wide stitch. If you catch it, it will unravel as one thread. Domestic am won't replicate this, can be done by hand with needle and wool.

SOURCE: I have no manual

There are several websites where manuals can be found:

http://www.tias.com/stores/relics/ has authorised reproductions of many Elna manuals for sale but not yours.

www.diplodocs.com is a free souce but no 1010 there.

www.sewingpartsonline.com is a great site too, and they have yours for sale $US15
link is
http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/instruction-manual-elna-1010.aspx

I don't know this model real well, but I'm guessing it is a front loading bobbin and bobbin case design maybe?? If so, you may well find that just looking at the instructions for any front loading bobbin machine will get you started,
try this link
http://www.sewusa.com/Threading_Diagrams/Threading_Pages/Elna_Sewing_machine_threading/Elna_225_threading_diagram.htm
These Elnitas 225, 244, 245 were front loading bobbin style but "made under licence" and sold by Elna. I think the 1010 may well be a similar design so see if these diagrams help get you under way.

Its always helpful to source the genuine manual if possible though so worth spending the money; manuals contain maintenance info as well as threading up, and different techniques and accessories usually.

Lastly, Blanket stitch. I presume you mean the big chunky stitch where you turn an edge over and it looks like a straight line with a diagonal stitch going to the folded edge at regular intervals like this.
tally_girl_77.jpg Some sewing machines do a similar "overcasting" stitch but it won't be big like you might want on polar fleece or a blanket edge. The commercial blanket stitch you see on blankets will be done by a special purpose industrial machine and it applies a single thread just as you would when doing a blanket stitch by hand. So look at the stitch selection dial on your machine and see if there is something resembling a blanket stitch but it usually would only be 4mm wide, the maximum your machine probably can stitch.

So if you want a genuine blanket stitch, its a needle and heavy thread hand job, there are instructions on how to do at www.sewing.about.com, link is http://sewing.about.com/od/beginner1/ss/blanketstitch.htm

I have an Elna explore 340 sewing machine. Fabric jammed while i was sewing. how do I remove fabric


Carefully cut any thread, turn the hand wheel gently to lift the needle up. Lift the presser foot up from the fabric, if the fabric is jammed in the feed dogs, and as the metal plate, take a screwdriver (some machines come with a special one). Unscrew the metal plate and use a seam ripper to carefully pull out the fabric or loosen them from the feed dogs.

I have an Elna SU Star Series and want to do a blanket stitch.


The owner's manual would have instructions for that:

Elna SU SP ST Sewing Machine Instruction Manual

However, a lot of older mechanical machines are not able to do a blanket stitch.

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.

Hi. My name is Sue. Could you please let me know if our Necchi sewing machine has a blanket stitch or not? The model number is 4825. Thank you


Hi Sue,

I found that the blanket stitch is also called a "whip stitch" or a "crochet stitch" and looks like this:

I tried to look for instructions or a manual on the web for your machine, but there's little to find. I did find a picture of the stitch selector - and it looked to me that the RED "D" or "F" :

steve_con_25.jpg

was as close as that machine was going to get to it. I'm not a sewing machine person - so that may not be correct.

Good luck!
