Check tension and threading - this sounds like your bottom thread is not in tension.

Elna machine puckers silk on zig zag stitching, Elna 2007


Yes, because a zig zag stitch is creating a wide stitch and the tension on the thread is going to pull the fabric within the seam together, you can't seam thin fabric with a wide zig zag. It will "tunnel together". If you are using this stitch to neaten a raw edge, then try using the serpentine or three step zig zag where the needle pierces the fabric 3 times in each leg of the zig zag, this will give better results.

Raw edge zig zag stitch bunching underneath


When zig zagging over a raw edge, the tension on the thread will pull in the fabric, especially in lightweight cottons or even lighter organza. Its not the best edging method for very light weight fabrics. You can try using a smaller zig zag, loosening off the top tension a little bit. Or if your machine has it, use the triple zig zag or serpentine stitch, where the needle goes through the fabric three times to make up each zig stitch, this stitch is better for edging most fabrics and is my preferred stitch.

I have an Elna SP sewing machine I bought in 1973 now it will only sew straight lines It will not make the zig zag. ? i live in Lebanon but have connections in Denmark, have can I get help ?


You need to check the camstack in the top of the machine to see if it is split or it may just need some oil on the selecter in the top.

I have and Elna su sewing machine and i can't get it to zig zag. Please refresh my memory on the settings i should have it on.


Depends on which SU you have, but you need to move the stitch selector to Zig Zag, then set the stitch length to 2.5 and the stitch width to at least 2.

On the earlier models the stitch selector is a wheel inside the flap on the top of the machine, on the air electronics, it is a coloured dial.

If this doesn't help, check if you've inadvertently moved the needle position to the side setting.
