Is a satin stich programed in the machine.


Perhaps newer machines have it, but usually the sewists programs it. All it requires is a wide stitch and short stitch length. The length is adjusted so the thread actually covers the fabric between stitches, but does not overlap itself. Even if the sewist has a programmed satin stitch but there may still be some required adjustments needed since the thickness of the thread will alter the way the stitch looks.

Please explain to me how to adjust the numerical, digital buttons on my 7430 Singer sewing machine?


I just took a look at your user's manual, and boy--you're right, and I've been a computer systems engineer for about 30 years!

Actually, it's easier to figure out by DOING rather than looking at the description on page 35. Basically, selection is divided into two categories--utility, that is, stitches you would use for ordinary sewing, like stretch stitches, zigzag stitches, straight stitch, buttonholes, etc. That is located on the left column, with the arrow keys used for navigation in the middle. The display only shows 5 patterns at a time, so to see all of them, you have to keep pressing the down arrow. Once you have selected the stitch itself, you can then select the stitches width and length, and if it's available for that particular stitch, you can mirror (flip) the stitch, and use a twin needle (if it's available for that design)

The decorative and letter stitches are selected on the right column, and work he same way--they are displayed 5 at a time, etc, and selecting stitch width and length, mirror, and twin needle. However, additionally, you can choose to have the pattern sewn once (the default) or continuously.

I hope that helps!

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.

Stitch length for zig zag satin binding 8mm equals what number?


Neat zigzag stitches are usually achieved at "2.5" or below.
Closed up zigzag stitches (close together) are referred to as a
satin stitch its likely you will want to set for 1.5 or at most 2. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/user-manuals/3116-singer-parts-SEWING+MACHINE-manual Look for page 40 in the owners book or scroll down and if you see numbers not on the page but on the scroll bar look for 47. It has some great pitures that can help you out.

Not stitching correctly after using pattern selectors - zigzag very messy stitch


Describe in more detail a messy stitch. It may be the cam follower that creates the patterns is not aligned and is contacting two different cams at the same time. The machine then sews both patterns at the same time. The solution may require an expert.

Bernina Arista 730 Check hook system - This won't sew correctly and is frustrating as I just used the system last night to do embroidery.


The 730 rotary hook is a bit sensitive to adjustment and cleaning. Make sure that the hook is clean and if you haven't oiled it for a while, give it a drop of oil (do you know where to put it ... many dont !) Check your needle is OK and, again, if used for a while, just put a new one in anyway. Load-up with different colours of the same type of thread top and bottom and sew-off a sequence of zig-zag, starting with the default and increasing the width and reducing the length until you get to a maximum width satin-stitch (dont increase the bobbin or top tension as you do it). Once you've done that, let me know what it looks like. The colours should be equal top and bottom, but maybe just a bit of top coming through to the underside on max width satin stitch. You'd also be advised to sew-off using pattern number 437 and the figure '9' - this will check the balance of the machine. If the '9' is not perfect, or the top section of the pattern 437 is not dead-central on the top of the triangular part of the pattern, the balance may need adjustment. Let me know how you get on.

Elna 2002 -


The question was regarding the Elna 2002 not 2007 and it wasn't a problem. I just do not understand how the pattern selection works. Thank you.
