You may need to use a certain type of thread for jersey knits and stretch fabrics also your machine should have a setting for stretch stitches to allow for smoother sewing

We have lost the extra manual for the necchi 6022 sewing machine. It had the instructions on how to create designs and what settings to use when using the serger foot in stretching/elastic material. I...


I'm a bit confused, this isn't a serger machine as far as I can see. So do you mean an overcasting foot where you sew a XXXXX type stitch along the edge of the fabric? The overcasting foot just helps you to line up the fabric edge and sew over it neatly.

if you go to this page http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/necchi-6022-sewing-machine-parts.aspx
there is an instruction manual for sale.

http://sewmamasew.com/blog2/2009/06/feet-feet-feet/ is also a great resouce on sewing machine feet with good photos of what they are used for.

Here is a video of overcasting foot in action http://www.sewingmachine-sales.co.uk/sewing_machine_info/video/34/adjustable-overcast-foot.html

If you are wanting to sew knit fabric then you just need to use a small zig zag stitch and a ball point needle to put elasticity into the seam. Or your model may have a stretch stitch, where the fabric is moved forwards and backwards during the stitch formation to add some elasticity.

Sewing elastic stretched onto fabric is a bit different with a SM, can be fiddly and hard to keep everything lined up nicely and stretched. Some machines have a little device which clips onto the needle plate in front of the needle that you can feed elastic through and tighten it to tension it, then just use a three step zig zag stitch to seam over this onto your fabric. But I don't know if Necchi has such a thing, your needle plate would need holes in front for it to clip into. Elna had these on their swiss machines in the 80's but haven't seen a similar device for a while.

Hope I've answered your question and not completely misunderstood your problem. Purchasing a manual is often the best way forward when a machine is unfamilar. Or www.sewing.about.com is great resource.

Thread is knoting at the bottom and bursting. The machine is only sewing with elastic thread. When I try sewing with straight stitch or zig zag it will knot at the bottom and burst.


Maybe you need to adjust your tension and double check your threading. I have never (in 50 years) sewed with elastic thread but I think a call to Singer customer service at 1-800-4singer may be in order.

1.check to make sure it's threaded correctly, sometimes the thread come off the thread take up lever on my mechanical sewing machine.
2.check the needle to see if it's bent
3.check to see if the needle is in backward
4.check the thread tension
5.check the bobbin to see if it's warped-i've gottin ahold of several of them

Brother XL2230 Elastic Overlock function not working properly


First of all check your needle size and utility, for the tension machine it must be the same on top and bottom example pull the top thread and the lower thread they must be the same.
When sticthing the elastic you must devide the amount of elastic versus the fabric : dise the amount before stiching
Hope this will help
Good day

The thread is knoting underneath when sewing


It sounds like you maybe using the wrong needle size for the material you are sewing, or perhaps it is the thread. I've found that not all threads are created equal and it may be too fine/heavy for the needle gauge your using.

Check out this site. All the Q&A answers in simple language, as well as a GREAT cust. support staff. (its a Brother after all!)

I hope this was helpful. Good luck and...
Happy sewing!

Can see alot of thread at the seam


Sounds like your needle threads are not tight enough.

Do some samples using different colored threads, if necessary, to see which needle thread is not doing the job. Then tighten in increments till you get the right tension settings.

It helps if you make notes of the correct settings on that material for the next time. Start a sample notebook, for the different materials you might use with tension settings for each, and if you do any fancy stuff with your serger, like pintucking, puffing, elastic application, ruffling and such.
