Make sure the thread is running off the bobbin the right direction and is under the auto-tension tab. On the top thread, make sure the tension is tight enough, the needle is the right length,in the right direction and is sharp.

I have a Necchi 3205 Royal series machine. I was sewing denim and it jambed and bent the needle. I replaced the needle and now it won't pull the bobbin thread up. I have tried several different needles...


Hi, I've got a necchi sewing machine too, not the same model as yours.
you said you were sewing denim & the machine jamed & bent the needle, it's sounds like the machine is out of time, sometime it doesn't take much to get them out of time & would have to be serviced by a repair shop with the tools needed to fix the timing.

My cousin has a machine that straight stitches fine but skips when you zig zag. I have changed her needle, dust out underneath, made sure that it was threaded correctly, changed thread. My question is...


Yes, it sounds like you've gone through all the usual trouble shooting so timing is probably out just a bit which means that the needle and rotary hook are not getting close enough to each other during the zig zag.

Probably best getting a sewing machine technician to give it a service and reset the timing.

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.
