The most common fault on sewing machines is bad threading or poor needle. Start with a fresh needle even if you have just changed it. Make sure its up as far as it will go. The Long groove should be facing you and the flat to the back away from you. A thicker needle is less likly to cause skipping. If the fabric flapps as it sews it may skip (flagging). If the fabric is stretchy, that can make it skip... solve by sewing a tape in for support. If that fails undo the needle clamp screw and pull the needle down slightly by say about 0.5mm. Tighten the clamp screw firmly. Turn the machine by hand to make sure the needle is not striking the parts within the machine. Test sew again. If that dont work all you can do is take it to an engineer. Dont let him sell you another. Its what they do. If they try, go elsewhere.

Please how do I work a zig zag pattern on my manual operated singer sewing machine


Hello, Annelien -

Unless your manually operated sewing machine has switches to realign your sewing machine needle to make zig zag stitching, as is demonstrated in this YouTube video (starting at around 6:30 minutes in the video):
https://www.fearlessmakers.com/manual-sewing-machine-works/
you cannot. Note: The machine in the video is a Necchi brand sewing machine.

Without knowing the model number of your manually operated Singer sewing machine, I cannot try to find operating instructions for it to determine if your machine has zig zag stitching potential.

Best wishes.

I have used my machine for over five years, never had a problem until today, the arm wheel at the side is suddenly stiff to turn and its not sewing a zig zag I was doing.


Try unpluging it from the power. It may need to resent . Try a basic straght stitch and see what happens. Then go back to your Ziz zag stitch.

White sewing machine won't stop the zig zag stitch


my suggestion is take the machine in to a sewing machine shop
to be check to see if something inside is broken or come loose
knowing the machine is in good working order gives peace of mind
instead of wanting to through it out the window
and get a instruction manual
Go to the singer website for a free pdf manual
Go to the home page
Go to customer service--click on it--it will show a small menu--click on instruction manual
In the box put the model number (example w265) & click search

Trouble sewing lycra fabric using a zig zag stitch


You have the machine set for blind hem stitching. Change the stitch selector to stretch stitch, which is a single, in line stitching zig zag stitch.

Skipping stitches while zig-zagging


If you have put a new needle in then the chances are the machine has gone out of time, you can either take it in to the repair shop or you can contact me and I will attach timing instructions drivewithken@blueyonder.co.uk
