How do I sew on a silky material. Does the tension need to be changed?


Generally, every time a project is changed, the machine may need to be tweaked. When sewing finer fabrics like chiffon, silk, the presser foot pressure needs to be adjusted, the needle should be smaller (and a fresh needle), the thread lighter weight, and the tension adjusted so the top & bobbin threads meet in the middle of the fabric. When sewing finer fabrics, the fabric will sometimes pucker. In that case, setting the stitch length shorter and possible adding paper (like tissue paper or fabric stabilizer) to the fabric sandwich will provide enough body to prevent the puckering.

My new machine sewed fine in cotton material, but I am having trouble sewing on a silky top.


Machine settings usually need to be re-adjusted when the project materials change, ie the needle size & type, the type/weight of thread, the presser foot pressure, the thread tension, the stitch length, etc. Sewing woven cotton is very different from sewing silk or chiffon. Test on scraps of the fabric before actually sewing on the garment. Even adding tissue paper to the stitching will help prevent fabric puckering.

My 880 is puckering when I stitch


Puckering is usually a result of incorrect tension, ie too tight. Be sure you are using a new needle and thread that are compatible with the fabric you are stitching. A heavier thread like Coats & Clark cotton-wrapped polyester may be too thick for sewing silk. Another thing you may want to check is the presser foot pressure adjustment (the amount of pressure the presser foot applies to the fabric and feed dogs). This should be discussed in your user's manual. Something else that may help is using a walking foot or teflon foot that allows the fabric to advance smoother, rather than the presser foot "pushing" the fabric as it advances through the machine.

Another thing that may be contributory is the type of fabric. Some fine fabrics, ie silk, chiffon, have a natural tendency to pucker.

Thread keeps breaking, Silk Fabric bunching u[


Machine breaks needles
1.make sure you are using the right needle for your type of sewing machine.
Most machines can use generic Schmetz needles. There are cases where the machine will only use ones specified in the owners manual.
2.the presser foot may not be installed properly
3.use the correct needle for the type of fabric you are working with. To fine of needle on heavy fabric or to course a needle on silk or jersey can damage fabric. make sure the correct needle for silk is being used.
4.let the feed dogs guide the fabric & the feed dogs will work with the presser foot .
5.the needle is not all the way in -push all the way up against the stop

also clean under the needle plate & in the bobbin area for lint or loose
threads
check to make sure the feed dogs are completely in the up position

if none of these suggestions work then it's possible that the machine
is out of time & would have to retimed at a sewing machine shop

My singer HD 110 will sew a bit then suddenly the needle will slow down to a stop & the handwheel seems stuck, yet the motor is still running.


Hello there! Make sure your pattern selector is compatible with the presser foot. Good idea to test with a straight stitch setting: Tension: 4. Width:4-5. Length 5 after you insert a new needle and re-thread machine. Your previous needle may have become bent when machine malfunctioned. Use fabric compatible with needle size. Always raise presser foot when threading! Then always lower presser foot before sewing. Remember to use blue tip scarf needles with synthetic fabric silk thread 50. Purster thread 50, mercerized cotton thread 50-60; #11 or #9 for fine or lightweight fabric with silk thread 50 or fine Pollyester thread; #18 leather needle for leather, #14 - 16 denim . Jimmy Sweep out shuttle carefully with small brush for broken threads and lint.

Sewing very fine silk


You can try adjusting your stitch length this may solve the problem right away.
It could be the thread your using, I have had to switch threads before. Rewind your bobin, sometimes issues can occur by a poorly wound bobin.
You can also try to use a different foot (my machine comes with a satin stitch foot)and or slow the speed of your feed dog.
Sometimes a very fabric does need some sort of backing, a tear away, or wash away might be your only answer.
I hope this helped.
