I can't find an image clear enough to actually see the stitch selection on the front of this machine.

Does it have a stitch that looks like three or 4 straight stitches, then one zig zag, then more straight stitches? This is the stitch you want to select to do a shell tuck.

Then hold your fabric with right side up and turn edge under about 8mm and seam along the edge using this stich so that the zig zag stitch goes over the folded edge each time to the right. This should pull in the folded edge a little giving a scalloped edge.

Just do a couple of trials to work out the best position for the folded edge on the needle plate to get the effect right, probably just the edge of the normal straight stitch but it varies for each machine. If your machine does this stitch with a variable adjustment on the width of the zig zag part, then you could finesse it with this too.

Hi I need to sew a fleecy backing to a crochet item which settings do I need for the wool not to strech? Thanks


I would put the fleece on the bottom. pin the wool item to top with pins fairly close together so it says where you want it. sew with the wool side up and use a normal stitch setting but go very slowly and tuck the wool bits under the sewing machine foot so it does not get caught on a loop of wool. remove the pin just before you are going to sew over it and it should keep your wool centered on your fleece. hope this helps good luck.

How do you position the needle/ with which lever or dial? location?


Your model doesn't have a specific needle position adjustment. But you could try this - set it to the shell stitch or lingerie stitch on the stitch selector but leave the stitch width setting on zero, this may move the needle to the left most position with any luck.

Other possibility is to put it in a step of the buttonhole sequence, but again leave stitch width on zero and see if this moves the needle bar to the right or left for you.
