Aloha, The first run I made on the fabric was

Aloha, The first run I made on the fabric was great- every one since is offset. I can attach pics of the layout on my screen and what happened when I ran the machine if you tell me how to do that on thie site. I cannot figure out what is happening. It is like the first part of the design is fine, then the whole design is raised up a level on the fabric, so I get a 2 part design. Any ideas? Mahalo, margaret smile ~ nap ~ be happy!!

This type of problem should not happen. Have you use the onscreen trouble shooting options? I would suggest that return the machine. It is new so you will get a replacement or refund. This piece is defective.

When i do gathers on my machine i use the largest sticth,but the gathers r hard to pull. y/


Stitch length of 4, loosen your top tension by half a number and always pull up the bobbin threads.

If you need to gather yards of fabric then get a gathering foot. Janome make one - it looks like this
10_24_2011_6_57_47_am.jpg

This foot is for creating soft gathers in lightweight fabrics. The underside of the foot is raised behind the needle and has a thick bar in front of the needle to gather the fabric. This works great to create the gathers as you sew. You can also gather and attach a ruffle onto a flat piece of fabric simultaneously, run the flat fabric through the top groove of the foot and the underneath fabric is gathered and stitched to the top piece, you need to keep the bottom piece feeding smoothly though so it takes practice to guide it evenly. Once mastered it is great to ruffle on valances and cushion frills.

Other option is use a ruffler foot, these will make a little ruffle every 12, 6 or 1 stitch so give a set result, and to obtain a more dramatic gather. They look like this.
10_24_2011_7_04_39_am.jpg

The arm of the foot with a C'shape sits over the needle bar of the machine so it is moved up and down to activate the device. The little blade at the front moves backwards at regular intervals forcing a "tuck" of fabric into the feed to be stitched. Again you can ruffle and stitch to straight fabric at once but it is an art to master.

The weight of the fabric you are gathering is obviously the key variable, ginghams and poplins are lightweight so gather easily but if you need to gather something heavy like cordoroy it is going to be a battle and threads may break. If so, stitch two lines of gathers and don't try to do long runs, you'll just break a thread and have to start over.

Another good way is to zig zag over a length of perle cotton, taking care not to actually stitch the pearle at all. You can then gather up the fabric along it, this works well for heavier weights.

Can't get the Lock Cutter Attachment to work. The right hand cut fabric won't feed through the fabric just won't go through and get cut and over sewn


tally_girl_35.jpg have you got the little silver arm with a gap in it (see photo above mounted over the needle bar? This is essential as the movement of the needle bar going up and down is driving the blades in this attachment.
The walking foot attachment for sewing machines works the same way, you need to place the little arm over the needle bar to make this aftermarket accessory work as its not driven by the sewing machine motor, purely by the movement of the needle bar.

Saying that, I would be suprised if this attachment cut heavy weight fabric or several layers well, like many things made to imitate a purpose built machine (serger) there is no substitute for the real thing. It might be fine to just trim the fabric loose threads off a fabric edge but also you would need to watch that the trimmed bits are going somewhere and not getting into the seam or your machine. On a serger, the blades are working right beside a vertical drop off with a waste tray below and there is a lot of lint and fibres trimmed which quickly builds up. With this attachment, you'd have to manually ensure that the trimmed fibres are swept out of the way.

I hope this helps you to get it working though - 4 thumbs up if so. :-)

I don't think I am threading the machine correctly. Any help.  I wish I could get better instructions than the little picture on the machine.   I also need to be reminded how to wind a bobbin...


If the pic is anything to go by, loosening the fly wheel on the right side of the machine may allow you the wind the bobbin without running the machine. if this does not fix the problem, Try placing the bobbin in the winder and then sliding it towards the gaurd to lock it in place before running the machine.
The problem with the thread getting knotted on the undersurface is usually related to the fabric texture and the stitch size, if the fabric is sheer or soft, try setting the stitch length "longer" to avoid the needle draging the fabric with it while stitching. Use a piece of fabric other than the one causing the problem to determine if this iis the cause,
Good Luck.

Why would my Singer 6235 not feed the fabic:


h! there,
fabric moves forward when machine run due to movement of feed dogs,feed dog has a teeth, when your foot presser goes down attached to fabrics the pressure hold the fabric between pressure foot and feed dogs that why when machine run feed dogs pushed fabric when recieved stitch.try to check adjustment of feed dogs it maybe set at rest or neutral.reset it to upward towards needle.check also bobbins thread if accumulation was build up under feed dogs.regard and have a nice day.

Have a Necchi 3205FA and trying to figure out how to set it up for serging. DVD wasn't much help.


There is a serger attachment available for that model. When you attach it to the machine you must start the fabric from the top of the foot. The foot won't cut the fabric if you feed it under the foot. You will want to use the Wide zigzag, overlock, or hemstitch stitches. Set stitch length knob on #4 for overlock stitch #1-0 for hemstitch or zigzag. Set the stitch width to the maximum. Make sure the hook arm is inserted over the needle screw so that when the needle goes us and down the attachment will work. Start on the edge of your fabric by making a small cut about 1-2 cm deep and about the same distance from the edge as the cutting blade. This will make it much easier to feed the fabric over and then under the foot. Remember to start the fabric on top of the foot and then feed it under the foot before it reaches where the needle would penetrate.
