Only sewing in reverse

All of a sudden about an inch from where i would be finished the seam the machine started to sew only in reverse without my touching the pedal.

If your reverse button has been stuck at all in the past then it may have just been sitting close to reverse for awhile and fell into that setting. Maybe your machine needs a good maintenance cleaning.

Where is the reverse sew button to finish off a seam

If this is an older machine, you might not have a reverse button. It's really hard to answer this without knowing what the sewing machine is, but until you find the answer, the best idea would be to stop the machine with the needle down, lift the presser foot and turn the fabric, put the presser foot down again, and do a few stitches along the line of sewing.
Happy sewing!

I am stitching a seam and when I finish it the thread is loose and it is like sewing a ruffle

increase the needle thread tension a bit
when approaching the end of a seam sew to the edge then engage reverse direction , sew back over the sewn bit for about 1/2" inch then forward sew again and cut the cotton when off the edge

Why is the fabric not feeding forward when stitching

on the front of the machine there is a lever/knob that sets the stitch size
if it is in the middle position ,the teeth will just go up and down and not back and forward
check that setting
it is used to seal of the threads when starting to sew and when finishing
start the sew for about 1/2" then reverse the feed then go forward again to complete the sewing
at the end of the sew do the same thing again before cutting the threads
this locks the threads as a knot so that the seam will not come undone

Sewing backwards

sewing backwards is primarily to lock the threads at the start of a sewing process ans so stop unraveling of the stitch
it should be about 1/2 " long so you start sewing 1/2 inch , reverse back to start then reverse and sew on as normal
finish of the stitch should be the same before you raise the foot and snip the cottons

My Huskylock 936 won't sew. I was sewing yesterday, 4 thread overlock. I finished a seam, cut the thread, proceeded to sew another seam. I put my foot on the pedal..and nothing.If I turn the machi

Good evening madam
It sounds like there is something wrong with the electrical system in your sewing machine. You can check the power and connections.
good luck

While sewing and finishing seam I went in reverse to knot. While resuming to sew again the machine began making beeping sounds and wont move forward to sew.

Raise the needle, make sure no thread is caught ( try clearing out the bobbin area), then turn off the machine, re-thread the machine, then power the machine back on. That should take care of it. ;)

I have a brother VX-950 sewing machine I have a pretty good stitch on top and bottom, put it is still puckering. I tried the tension. What elese should I try?

New needle and make sure it is the right sized needle for the fabric that you are sewing. If silky satin then use a size 70 or even 60 needle sharp. If microfibre then there are Schmetz needles called microtec that are perfect for this.

Also try shortening the stitch length a little. You may still need to finesse the tension a bit. I think this is a front loading bobbin machine so you might try adjusting the tension on the bobbin holder a little bit. It is hard with these as there is no "0' marking to set it to, its just trial and testing.

Also, are you pinning across the seam line at about 3 inch intervals?

If there is still some puckering happening, then perhaps, stop at the end of the seam with the needle in the work, and ease the fabric along the stitching line a bit to smooth out the seam, then do the reversing stitches at the end to lock off the seam.

Also press, press, press each seam. Always press on top of the seam, turn it over and press the underside of the seam, then lie right side down on the ironing board and press the seam allowances open. This sets the stitches into the fabric and finishes off the seam appearance. I always sew with the ironing press on beside me.

You may still be unhappy with the seam result after doing all this - if you enjoy sewing then consider shopping for a higher quality machine - there is a difference in stitching quality between a $400 and $2,000 machine. You could always take a piece of your fabric to a sewing dealer near you and test sew on a European machine, you should see a difference in the stitching quality.


My consew 230 sewing machine is not holding the thred on the needle. every time i thred the needle and step on the paddle to sew, the needle comes back out unthred, please help.

before starting to sew
1.make sure the top thread & bobbin thread have a thread tail of 3 to 6 inches
2.make sure the thread tails are pulled behind the needle toward the back of the machine

then put the fabric under the presser foot to sew

when your finished with the seam, after the thread is cut from the fabric,, leave the thread tail the same as above before starting to sew again

How do you prevent pfaff sewing machines from eating up the fabric at the begin of every seam? do you have to start in an 1/8 inch each time you start a seam, or can you start a seam right at the edge of...

This happens with other brands as well.

Hold on to the threads behind the presser foot and hand walk the first two or three stitches.

Some like to use a leader/spider.

Fold a scrap and stitch to the edge and then **** with the fabric you want to sew.

Remove the leader and use over and over and soon the leader threads will resemble a "spider".
