What are the stitch numbers


There are lots of numbers in sewing! I suspect you are referring to the numbers that some sewing machines assign to each stitch. So, for example, a straight stitch might be #1, zig zag stitch #2, hem stitch #3, and so on.

Different sewing machines will number their stitches differently, though. My suggestion is for you to take a plain piece of fabric and a contrasting thread color and just sew a few inches of every stitch on your machine. Number them, and keep the swatch for reference!

Another "stitch number" on a sewing machine could be the tension number (that's the dial usually at the right side of the needle). This will determine how the stitch lies on (or within) the fabric. Another number will set the length of the stitch, so you can have tiny little stitches or very long ones or anything in between. Yet another number will set the width of the stitch, so you can go from a very narrow zig-zag to one as wide as your machine is capable of producing. That width is limited by the opening of the plate on your machine, usually about 5 mm.

Hope this answers your question, and isn't too much information!

My Kenmore Mini Ultra sewing machine won't sew the button stitch. I have followed the instructions on the manual but still the thread does not get sewn onto the fabric. Simple straight stitches are ok


it's possible that there could be a problem with the gear or cam that does the button hole stitch

try a different needle--one for the fabric being sewed
try a different bobbin --make sure the bobbin is not warped or damaged
try different thread-- use EVERY thread guide

make sure the bobbin is wound correctly--inserted correctly in to the bobbin case--and turned the right way.

What are the types of sewing machine for t-shirt making?


almost any machine can be used to sew tee shirts. all you really need is a stretch stitch and overlock stitch which event the most basic machine has these days. try using an old shirt that you no longer wear and try different stitches, stitch lengths until you are satisfied with the results,

Not problem-question


Different stitch lengths are used depending on what you're sewing. I would say 2.5 is the "normal", "average" stitch length for basic sewing. If there are certain types of fabric you're using that ravel or come apart easily, you would use a smaller stitch length, which means more stitches per inch. If you want to just baste fabric together without having a permanent seam, you woould use the highest number, to have the least amount of stitches per inch.

Setting stitches on my 19233 Kenmore


Just as soon as you can. Electronics have a shorter warranty period than mechanical problems.

How do I change the stiches?


You can do all of these stitches by using different combinations of your stitch selector, stitch width and stitch feed knobs, for instance, on the panel I can see on your machine:

http://www.jo-ann.com/joann/product/images/52659.jsp?CATID=cat3122&PRODID=prd11333

Stitches 1, 2 & 3 are straight stitches, centered, left and right. Really basic stuff, not different stitches at all. 4,5,6,7 & 8 are zig-zag stitches of different widths. 9 is the widest zig-zag (no. 8) on a finer stitch length, etc...

I think you should try and get an instruction manual for your machine. After a lengthy search of my usual manual sources, I've determined that that this may not be so easy. I think you should contact White on their 800 number and let them try and help you... 1-800-331-3164.

If you found this helpful, please vote generously as I receive nothing other than acknowledgement for my time.

Sewing machine straight stitch is not straight


It sounds like it is making a blind stitch, does it look something like this? -----v-----v-----v-----v-----v If so it might be on the blind stitch setting instead of the straight stitch! ;-)
