Just put it on STRAIGHT stitch and insert your needle flat side to the back and you're off!

How to thread with double needle


You'll need to use two separate spools of thread. Machines that take a twin needle will usually have separated thread guides and two separate tension disks. Just make sure the threads are not twisted when threading. Might be better to thread one all the way through and then thread the second.

How To Use Twin Needles

Be sure to check the width of your stitch when using a twin needle. Because the needles will be wider than a single needle, it is very easy to hit the needle plate if setting it too wide.

Twin needle tension problem


Hi, Tania
Chances are that you're using a universal point twin needle, designed for sewing on woven fabrics. Twin needles also come with a ballpoint which is what you need for knit fabrics
A ballpoint or stretch needle has a rounded tip that will separate the knit fibers as it penetrates the fabric instead of breaking through them. A universal needle may not catch the bobbin thread on both needles when used on knit fabrics; this is necessary for proper stitch formation.

Code E8 on brother Model Ns40


Yes the manual for Brother sewing machines are available from their support site: http://www.brother-usa.com/manuals/default.aspx?ProductGroupID=3#.TyH3fIFtNG9 . I believe the NS40 is the Brother Innov-is 40. The direct link to the manual is http://www.brother-usa.com/ModelDocuments/Consumer/Users%20Manual/UM_Innov_%C3%ADs%2040_%20NEW%20Limited%20Edition_EN_1114.PDF . An E8 error means that a stitch was selected after the twin-needle setting has been selected. Cancel the twin-needle setting and then select a stitch. Then if you are using a twin-needle setting, adjust the machine for the twin-needle setting.

I hope this helps.

Skips a few stitches when using a double needle. I'm using a recently acquired old Pfaff Hobbymatic and have used a double needle before on a Singer. When I tried sewing, it will stitch but then skip a...


firstly are you using a regular twin needle on a knit fabric? this could cause skipped stitches.
is the twin needle quite old and possibly blunt?

Is the Hobbymatic a model that requires a slanted twin needle, there are two types of twin needles as the computerised machines need the offset style. You can distinguish between them by the plastic block on the needle shaft where the twin needle points are set, either red or a deep brown colour.

If none of the above apply, then it is possible that the timing sequence is slightly off so that one of the needle's thread is not getting caught during the stitching.

Timing is an adjustment that I leave to the technician to address. But if you want to have a go yourself there may be some videos on you-tube for your model and how to make this adjustment to it.

Using twin needle with Janome dc3050


you can just use the straight stitch.If you want to use a fancy stitch you have to be careful that the throw, as I call it is not too wide as you could break the needles and put the timing out. Also use a longer stitch than normal.Also use the stretch twin needle.

Have you looked at your manual or bought the more expensive book from your dealer? I have found my book for my Evolve a VERY good investment (70 bucks, but worth every penny these past 2 years!)
Baby Lock have very good cust. service either on the web or right at your dealer. Most dealers will give free lessons upon request.
I hope this helped

Twin needle


Any universal twin needle should work, there is no attachment. Just don't set your stitch width too big if you are in zig-zag!
I hope this helps and good luck.
