I had this problem on my jerome machine and when I took it to the repair shop he said it was caused by cheap cotton, changed the cotton and it worked OK.

I am trying to replace monofilm panels in a windsurfing sail, using a Singer 457 zig zag sewing machine. I cannot create a good zig zag seam when the monofilm is sandwiched between two canvas layers.


Joe, you might try a larger needle than you're using. You might also want to try a larger leather needle. You machine should take needles up to a size 18.

It sounds like the needle you're using is having a problem picking up the bobbin thread, and that might solve it.

Singer Sewmate, the zig zag stitch is perfect on the bottom of the fabric, but lopsided on the top, how do I fix this?


This could be a combination of two things, to much down pressure on the spring loaded foot on top or the fabric distorting it, the other is a top stich tension issue adjust tension in and out to see if this improves the stich.
good luck

TRADITION 2250 SINGER SEWING MACHINE HOW TO ZIG ZAG


From the pattern selector (the bigger dial), select the zig-zag stitch. Then, using the stitch length dial (the smaller dial), adjust the stitch length. The closer your stitch length is to "0", the more dense will your zig-zag stitch be.

My new Singer machine ("Curvy") purchased last week (3/2014) has a page on stretch stitches. The way the book is written, it lists Straight Stretch Stitch on the same page as Ric Rac, HOneycomb, and...


A zig-zag is also a stretch stitch. Usually, a "built-in" stretch stitch will stitch forward a couple and then stitch backward and then stitch forward again (time consuming and uses a lot of thread--but suitable if that's what you want). Whatever you are sewing, whether it is a seam or finished raw edge and the fabric is stretch, you will need to use a stretch or zig-zag. A straight stitch will pop the threads as soon as the fabric has to give.

You can test your stitches on some scrap fabric and see what looks best.

An Over-edge stitch is just that, just a stitch over the fabric edge. It probably would not be suitable for sewing a seam.

Zig-zag settings


you probably shouldn't be using a zig zag for that application. But the multi-stitch zig zag.

Please look at page 40 of your manual for information.

As for needle breaking check to make sure your need is the correct one for the thread and fabric. Also make sure your pressure foot is the one recommended for the stitch. Consider this... most thicker fabrics require a longer stitch.
