It sounds like you are doing all the right things. Try feeding the material slower or if it looks like the stitches are too close together feeding faster. Until you get allot of practice in and are more comfortable with your technique, you can always use a heavier needle!

I have a Singer model 1120. I recently ordered an overcast foot, which I have been unable to use because the needle breaks What are the machine settings when using the overcast foot on model 1120?


On page 22 of your manual tells you exactly how to do it. I don't know which model you have A, B, or C, so I am not sure what stitch adjustments you make. But, if you do not have a manual go to www.singerco.com and download your manual for free, then enlarge the diagram and you can see it very clearly. Good luck, and happy sewing.

When attempting to sew rather thin material the main presser foot has not enough downward pressure to keep the material from sliding around. This is on a Singer 111W. Works fine on leather etc. I thought...


This machine was not designed to sew THIN material. It is an upholstery machine and it will never sew thin fabric very well. You can try a smaller needle(size 16 or less) and shorter stitches. There is also an adjustment to raise and lower the walking foot located on the backside of the machine. It can be recognized by the wing nut holding it in place and that it slides up and down when it is loose.

Have you checked your bobbin, mine sometimes gets the needle thread stuck underneath the bobbin and it all gets really tight and won't let the needle go down enough to sew.
