I am trying to teach myself to sew.... what is a serge stitch an how do I set my brother sewing machine to do it?


A serger (overlocker) is not a sewing machine. If you look at the inside seams of a purchased t-shirt, you will usually find a serge stitch that was created using a serger (overlocker). A serger/overlocker usually uses 3 or 4 threads to create that stitch. It also trims the fabric at the same time it finishes the fabric edge. The serge stitch is a chain stitch that, if you pull a particular thread, the entire stitch will come undone.

Your sewing machine is not able to create that same stitch. Your sewing machine may have what is called an "overlock" stitch, but it will use only 2 threads (the top and bobbin) to create that stitch. You would have to consult your owner's manual to see if it can make an overlock stitch.

My serger will not make a chain and won't sew. I've checked the threading, and it all seems okay. Any ideas on why it won't sew and make a stitch?


Usually it's because the machine is not threaded correctly. Consult your owner's manual. Remove ALL the thread and start over from the beginning. Make sure to RAISE the presser foot before threading. Thread each thread in the proper order (usually upper looper first, lower looper second with the thread tail draped over the top of the upper looper as the last step...), then thread the needles. Tug the threads to make sure they are each seated in the tension disk. Check that you are not missing any steps in any of the threading. It would probably help to use different colors in each one so you can tell which thread is causing a problem. If thread is breaking, check to make sure any of the threads are not wrapped around the spool pin or the thread tree.

If any thread breaks, it is good practice to remove all the threads and rethread everything from the beginning. It will save you a lot of frustration in the end.

To start off, set all the tensions to the halfway point. This is the standard factory setting for basic overlocking.

Troubleshooting:
If the left needle thread is breaking at the needle, try a new needle and make sure it is inserted correctly and all the way up. Give the thread a tug and see if it pulls through the tension disk. Could be looped around something or the tension disk is not working properly--piece of thread, lint, gunky, or defective/broken.

I'm not sure how to thread my machine, I lost my manual elna lock pro 5Dc


I would suggest that you buy a new manual for this as your overlocker has 5 threads that need to be threaded up correctly to form a stitch and there are several different stitches that can be made with this model such as a rolled hem, chain stitch, three thread overlock, four thread overlock and safety stitch with three thread overlock, lots to learn.

You can buy a manual here for $USD14.99: http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/instruction-manual-elna-pro5dc.aspx
or this website has a copy for $USD10.
http://www.sewusa.com/Sewing_Machine_Manuals/Elna_Manuals/Pro_4DC_DE_Instruction_Manual.htm

Always well worth buying the manual and saving a lot of frustration trying to guess how things work and it adds value if you are going to sell the item.

You can get some general overlocker threading tips from http://sewing.about.com/od/sergersoverlock/ss/serger.htm which may help you too.

Sould i use overlock thead on my brother embroidery/sewing maching


It is, of course, possible to use overlock thread in a typical machine. Generally speaking, you only want to use overlock thread to overlock ("serge"). The reason for this if that while typical all-purpose or sewing machine thread has 3 strings wound together, overlock thread has only 2. When you are using 3, 4, or even 8 threads at a time with a serger, each strand doesn't necessarily have to be as strong as when you are sewing on a machine with only 2 threads. So, you physically could use the thread, yes, but it will not be near as strong, and you will probably have issues with breakage while sewing as well. The cost savings you think you may be saving by using overlock thread (which is, after all, considerably cheaper per yard), well soon be overrun with extra time sewing due to broken threads and overall less quality in your garment as it will be made weaker.
