when the tension dial moves on it's own, it's time to have the machine checked, to see if there is a part damaged or broken

Um, difficult to say. Could be something dislodged or broken. Probably worth taking it for service.

Check to make sure you have not accidentally set the machine to wind a bobbin. That will prevent the needle bar from moving.

Otherwise, it is probably time for service.

The built-in character size is usually restricted to the same width as the widest zig-zag your machine will make--most machines are 5mm or 9mm.

Spaces are usually made by programming some straight stitches between words (begins around page 73 of the manual).

There are no user oil spots on the elna 7200. It does require lubrication. It is important to take these modern machines in for service by a professional regularly.

You could try using a seam jumper when crossing bulk, this is a little plastic device that you put in front and behind the pressure foot to keep it level as it goes over the bulk. This then means the machine can keep feeding the fabric evenly. WIthout it, the feed dogs arent getting enough pressure, the machine slows and can't feed the seam, your needle may deflect and strike the foot, and broken needle may be the result.

Here is a link to one called a Jean a Ma Jig, http://sewing.about.com/gi/dynamic/offsite.htm?site=http://www.clotilde.com/store/

Also, try bashing the seam you are wanting to sew across first with a hammer and always trim the seam allowances inside the seam if you can. If sewing denim, use a denim needle with blue coating, it helps it pass between the densely woven fibres in this fabric.

However, it may be that your machine just hasn't got the strength to stitch through more than 6 layers, many wont. Especially if you use buttonhole twist thread to get the read to wear jeans seam finish. I often resort to using my old SInger 20U industrial straight stitch when altering jeans.

A blanket stitch is traditionally done with a large needle and wool to a folded edge of fabric and is often done about 1cm wide, most sewing machines can't swing the needle this wide or take the heavy gauge thread you need for the blanket stitch effect, its a hand done thing.

when you buy a new sewing machine, in the box there should be a bag or storage compartment with accessories for the machine, and a operation manual.
