    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.

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.

Is a satin stich programed in the machine.


Perhaps newer machines have it, but usually the sewists programs it. All it requires is a wide stitch and short stitch length. The length is adjusted so the thread actually covers the fabric between stitches, but does not overlap itself. Even if the sewist has a programmed satin stitch but there may still be some required adjustments needed since the thickness of the thread will alter the way the stitch looks.

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

I don't know how to make satin stich Janome DC2010


As a general rule of thumb, satin stitch is obtained by selecting zig-zag, turning stitch width up to 3 or 4 and stitch length to 0.5. If you have a clear plastic open toe sewing foot, put that on to help view the area.

If you are doing applique (attaching pieces of fabric to another surface) with a satin stitch, you may also need to use tear away stabiliser underneath or interface the fabric first, it depends on what/where you are doing the satin stitch onto.

And a nice machine embroidery thread will give you a much silkier appearance than plain thread.

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!

There is one way out. Give the sewing m/c a thorough servicing job, Clear all the pieces of cloth/fabric/threads, etc Remove the bobbin and load afresh. Clear out the toothed sliders which pulls the cloth while stitching. the thread being used for stitching passes a sort of loop, the tension being controlled by how much the pressure the spring can exert such that depending on the material being stitched. Specially after stitching satin, which is tricky material to stitch in a sewing m/c since the cloth is slippery. Also clear sewing jam and the metal teeth like rack which pushes the cloth for the next stitch to start. This area if cleaned up properly and a little bit of oiling on the spring loader and the spindle assembly which moves up & down...............................sudeep
