Do a Google search for Sewline 20 sewing machine manual. They are available for around £4.50 in the UK from a number of sources. The Sewline 20 is so similar to many other machines, so unless you are a complete newbie you don't really need to buy one. Set the bottom bobbin tension first, so that the bobbin, in the holder, drops like a spider on a thread. There is a screw that you tighten or loosen to adjust the spring pressure on the side of the bobbin carrier. Once the bottom tension is set you adjust the top tension, sewing on a scrap of material, until the stitches lock properly. The Sewline 20 is a sturdy well-built machine, very easy to clean and oil. Clear any fluff out of the needle plate area for starters if you got it pre-loved.

I bought a R-2000 never used Necchi at an estate sale. Did not thoroughly read the manual before beginning to sew. Now it will only sew a zig-zag--think I did not use the release knob before changi


since you bought the machine at a state sale it would probably be a good idea to have the machine serviced.
you should be able to go from straight stitch to zig zag with out any problems.
if you move the dials or knob & the machine will not do a straight stitch then it needs to be checked

We have lost the extra manual for the necchi 6022 sewing machine. It had the instructions on how to create designs and what settings to use when using the serger foot in stretching/elastic material. I...


I'm a bit confused, this isn't a serger machine as far as I can see. So do you mean an overcasting foot where you sew a XXXXX type stitch along the edge of the fabric? The overcasting foot just helps you to line up the fabric edge and sew over it neatly.

if you go to this page http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/necchi-6022-sewing-machine-parts.aspx
there is an instruction manual for sale.

http://sewmamasew.com/blog2/2009/06/feet-feet-feet/ is also a great resouce on sewing machine feet with good photos of what they are used for.

Here is a video of overcasting foot in action http://www.sewingmachine-sales.co.uk/sewing_machine_info/video/34/adjustable-overcast-foot.html

If you are wanting to sew knit fabric then you just need to use a small zig zag stitch and a ball point needle to put elasticity into the seam. Or your model may have a stretch stitch, where the fabric is moved forwards and backwards during the stitch formation to add some elasticity.

Sewing elastic stretched onto fabric is a bit different with a SM, can be fiddly and hard to keep everything lined up nicely and stretched. Some machines have a little device which clips onto the needle plate in front of the needle that you can feed elastic through and tighten it to tension it, then just use a three step zig zag stitch to seam over this onto your fabric. But I don't know if Necchi has such a thing, your needle plate would need holes in front for it to clip into. Elna had these on their swiss machines in the 80's but haven't seen a similar device for a while.

Hope I've answered your question and not completely misunderstood your problem. Purchasing a manual is often the best way forward when a machine is unfamilar. Or www.sewing.about.com is great resource.

I have a Necchi Logica 592 that I purchased new in 1987. The feed dogs do not raise to the proper position and the fabric won't feed through. I need a repair manual and the part (parts) to fix it.


If , you go to www.tias.com you wil be able to purchase a copy of a technicians book, the Sears Kenmore Sensor Sew 100 was the same machine, Necchi made it for them. Parts are going to be next to impossible to get. My motor is shot, but everything else is like brand new, boards etc. I bought the book and that is why I knew it was the motor. Sometimes, ebay will have one for sale, but they want too much. I am using mine as a doorstop, LOL, I paid $800 for it new in 19884. Good luck
