Janome My style 16 - stretch stitches

Okay, bought the machine second hand, had it serviced and it works beautifully only how do I turn the dial around to "stretch stitch"? I feel like I'll break it if I force it around there to about 7 o'clock so was wondering if you perhaps push/pull the dial to turn it?
I thank, in advance anyone who might help.

    Thankyou Georgi for your spot-on solution!!!, I've given it that bit extra push and it does turn around to the green triangle. I just wasn't brave enough to force it until I heard for sure.
    Must have coffee before resuming sewing...going cross-eyed now.
    Happy sewing to you too. ;)

I just bought the same machine off ebay, and wanted to get a jump on ordering a 1/4" quilting foot. Could you tell me if I need one with a high shank, or if the ones online that "snap on" will work?

Thanks for your time!

Usha flair model


If you check on your machine, there will be a switch or dial (depending on model) that also has a blue color. That is probably for stretch stitching. You will have to change the switch or dial to the stretch stitch setting and then you will get those stitches. No need to change the needle plate. You will only need to change to a ball point needle if you are stitching on knit. Otherwise a regular needle will be fine.

My Kenmore sewing machine model number is 17630, & when I try to set the stitch length from a Straight Stitch setting to a Straight STRETCH Stitch setting, there isn't any difference. I have the length...


Take a look at the stitch length dial. If you turn that dial counter clockwise (to about 7 o'clock), it will set to stretch stitch. Then all of the stretch stitch features will work. When you want to go back to straight stitching, just move that dial back to what ever stitch length you wish.

Machine will not sew forward without backstitching


You have selected the Stretch Stich (SS) mode on the stitch length regulator, just turn the knob around until you have a number 1 - 5 and that should be it.
The model number will be the last digits on the metal compliance plate with voltage etc.....looks like:
V / 1234 / 123454321 / 2016

This then would be a Model 2016

Skipping stithes


Try practicing on a test piece before moving on to the quilt. Batik fabric is beautiful! I would check the thread size and needle. I tried quilting with invisible thread and had the same problem. The minute I changed to 50 wt.thread and a new needle the problem disappeared. I've found that 40 or 50 wt. thread works best on my Janome.

Darning would normally be done with the triple stretch stich, the one that is a zig-zag broken up into three stitches right and then three stitches left. See-through Zig-Zag foot. Zig-Zag set at it's widest. Feed set to about 1/16-1/8 inch (1.5-3mm) and darn by sewing forward a bit, adjust fabric, and then backward by pressing and holding the reverse button. Continue back and forth until you've created a darned box. For extra strength, turn fabric 90 degrees and repeat over same area.
