How do I do a basic satin stitch ? My machine only has patterned satin stitches


A satin stitch is a combination of a wide zig-zag and a short stitch length. Set the stitch width to the maximum. Then while stitching, shorten the stitch length until the threads lay next to each other so no fabric shows between the threads but the threads do not overlap. It would help if you have a satin stitch foot so there is space under the presser foot for the extra threads.

Need to do a satin stitch on Bernini 1630


Just set it for a short stitch length and a wide zig-zag. Test it and keep adjusting the stitch length so the thread will not overlap from stitch to stitch but also that the stitches are close enough so no fabric shows between the stitches.

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.

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.

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.
