How do u end the stiching


You shorten the stitch length and either reverse a few (5 or 6) stitches or stitch forward a few stitches. Some people will stitch in place but that frequently causes a knot on the underside of the fabric. You can also tie the thread tails together (especially when sewing fine fabric like chiffon, silk, etc.) and clip the tails close to the knot.

Elna machine puckers silk on zig zag stitching, Elna 2007


Yes, because a zig zag stitch is creating a wide stitch and the tension on the thread is going to pull the fabric within the seam together, you can't seam thin fabric with a wide zig zag. It will "tunnel together". If you are using this stitch to neaten a raw edge, then try using the serpentine or three step zig zag where the needle pierces the fabric 3 times in each leg of the zig zag, this will give better results.

I have juki 1541industrial machine . It started sewing upside down . Instead of nice stiching on top show side it on bottom. Any ideas


This is caused by the tension between the bobbin and needle threads being out of balance. If the knots between the stitches are on the bottom side, then you need to tighten your needle thread tension a little at a time until the knot is in middle of fabric. The reverse of this is if the knots are on the top, then either your bobbin tension is too loose or your needle thread tension is too tight. If this occurs, then loosen your needle thread a little at a time to see if knot goes down in middle of fabric. If it does not, then you need to increase the tension on your bobbin thread. This done by taking bobbin case out and tighten the small screw located in the middle of the spring on the side of the case. You only need a slight, steady pull on the bobbin thread - the more you put on the bobbin, the more you are going to have to put on the needle thread.

Why does my thread knot on the back when stitching in place?


Several things to try:
Pull thread tails (both bobbin thread and upper thread) straight back and when you lower the presser foot, make sure they are held down straight back. This may or may not be enough to solve the problem, but it is simple to try, and often works. You might want to hold the thread tails while you start sewing.
Use a starter--folded piece of fabric scrap about an inch long--and begin sewing oink middle of starter. Push the fabric you want to see right up to the starter and keep sewing from the starter right onto your project without lifting the presser foot or cutting the thread. When you finish sewing, cut the little piece of thread between the starter and your project.
Before lowering presser foot, use wheel to lower your needle once and then pull up bobbin thread to top surface of your project. Then hold both bobbin and upper thread tails, lower your presser foot, and begin sewing. Release the thread tails after a few stitches.
Hope this helps. Those nasty "thread nests" are a real pain.

sounds more like a foot pedal fault rather than the motor, try another foot pedal. It sounds as if yours is faulty

What setting do i use for working with silk on a brother xr52 don't have manual


You can download the manual for your machine from the Brother site, link is

There are lots of weights of silk fabric but I'll assume you are working with something soft and silky like a silk charmeusse or silk georgette.

You need to stitch seams with a straight stitch and use a new sharp needle size 70 or even 60. Change the needle every 4-6 sewing hours or if you hear squeaking or popping; throw away the blunt one.

Use a quality polyester thread like Guttermann, Mettler, or Metryosene. Start with stitch length on 2.5 and stitch width zero (straight stitch). The normal metal presser foot is probably best for this. If the fabric is see through you may wish to do french seams to encase the raw edges. This is where you sew wrong sides together, then turn and stitch right sides together, if you have never done this instructions are here http://sewing.about.com/od/techniques/ss/frenchseam.htm.

Also pay carefull attention to your bobbin winding, my tip for this is here
http://www.fixya.com/support/r10598580-winding_bobbin_correctly
as winding the bobbin smoothly and evenly is essential to quality stitched seams.

Always press every seam as you sew, dry iron, silk setting. Press each side of the seam, then press the seam allowances open, this sets the stitches into the fabric.

If you find that the seam is pulling up you can try loosing off the top tension by a half number (turn it down to loosen) and shorten up the stitch length a fraction to 2.2 or so. But you don't want it too small as if you need to "unsew" ie unpick, you'll never see the thread.

Use a lighweight interfacing if the pattern requires it; I'd use a fusible but very lightweight such as Pellon Featherweight.

Happy sewing.

When quilting by hand, how do you end the stitch?


Have you tried (needle still on) making one knot close to the fabric.
Pull gently and the knot will go to the inside.
Take one stitch; trim your thread.

Bernina Aurora 440 knotting below my fabric and into bobbin area.


Are you sure you have the bobbin the right way round in the holder....when you look at the bobbin and tug the thread, the bobbin should move clockwise.
Pull out the foot pedal and use bsr2 with the start/stop button.
Bring bobbin thread to top of work before starting to sew. This may help knotting problem
