    I have tried the satin stitch food that came with the machine, it does not help. I have tried every combination of settings on stitch lenght and width as well as tention. Can you send me a picture of the correct foot? Do you have any other ideas? Is it possible that MY machine is screwed up and will just not do it?



    Thanks

    Thanks, the info you provided is pretty much the same as what is in my owners manual. I still can't get it to work, thanks anyway.

It sounds as though the design is stitching but the machine is skipping stitches. If this is the case, be sure you hoop the tear away in the hoop with your fabric.Make sure the fabric is taut. Use a new needle and a good quality thread.If this doesn't solve your problem, try the design on a different type of fabric.

Some machines will start out by sewing a straight stitch all the way around the buttonhole area first and then will zigzag/satin stitch along the sides. Bar tacks will be the last stitches sewn - hope this helps!

Your threading might be the problem, follow the advise in your manual for your fabric. or go to singerco.com & see what they advise in your model or another one for tensions on satin. You may need a walking foot to do the job, You can take a scrap piece of fabric and try using tissue paper under your fabric to stop the slippage, then tear it away. We did that when I was learning to sew, and it worked. Good luck.

What is the setting for satin stiches


Depends on your machine and the thread you are using. A satin stitch is a zig-zag with the stitch length set so the fabric is not visible between the stitches but the stitches do not overlap.

What number is satin stitch on Piaf quilt expressions 4.0


A satin stitch is simply a zig-zag stitch that is shortened enough so the threads lay next to each other without laying over another but also without any space (fabric) showing between. Keep in mind that the thread weight will cause the satin stitch to differ.

What can I do to widen my satin stitch when it is to narrow for the applique


Hello,
Unless you have and know how to use digitizing software, will you be able to add width to the satin stitches when doing applique. You need to cut the applique fabric larger than the cut-out-line so the applique fabric will held down properly. Some Commercial or higher end home embroidery machines can re-interpret the embroidery design and widen the satin stitches in a design without software. 6f3dbcfe-19c3-4021-b143-de10c9a89868.jpg

On satin stitch setting, machine is only stitching left side


if the fabric is thin then it needs something with it to make it strong enough to handle the stitch,,I suggest trying a washable stabilizer or interfacing & see if that will help the stitch to be normal

Look on page 46 of your manual and you will see the correct way to satin stitch. Also, you should use a stabilizer, like interfacing or good old fashioned gift tissue paper. If, you don't have your manual handy, download one for free at www.singerco.com and it will tell you how to clean and oil your machine, change your needle. Your machine should not be noisy, try placing it on a towel if you are on a hard surface. Good luck, it is not hard, you just need a little practice on some scrap material.

Buttonhole making instructions from the manual of the Singer Simple do not seem to be accurate. The tension is incorrect and the machine is only sewing down one side without creating the satin stitch/...


Some machines will start out by sewing a straight stitch all the way around the buttonhole area first and then will zigzag/satin stitch along the sides. Bar tacks will be the last stitches sewn - hope this helps!
