I understand that the wave stitch is possible to do on the Imagine. Does anyone know how to do this? I think it has something to do with holding a certain thread, or threading it a certain way. It was demonstrated by Margaret Tully but I can't find it anywhere.
There are two Imagines, the regular imagine and the imagine wave. You would know it if you have the wave version. Not what you wanted to hear, but that's the way it is. Your manual would clearly state it and there is a dial that has to be turned to convert to the wave stitch.

I had to replace the Needle Plate on my Babylock Ellegante machine and when I turned on the machine it told me to Turn off power and replace the Needle Plate. which I had already done. How do I fix that so I can sew. thanks Jan [email protected]
I have the same problem with my Imagine and am trying to find someone with some real knowledge. I think the problem is that the forks holding the thread are not opening up as wide as the stitch width and this causes puckering. if you serge just off the material your stitch will probably be perfect but your blades will not touch the fabric. My sewing repair shop thinks I used my machine too much and that I should send it to babylock which would cost 500 to 600 . How silly is that. I am trying to find out how to adjust the forks or someone who can do it for me. If you find something please post answer.
I "THINK" I have my machine threaded properly but it will not make a chain stitch. I followed the thread guide for the narrow three spool set up with the right needle setting. why would the machine not catch the chain ????
Here are rhe directions from the manual of "Image" model BLE1AT: 3 Thread Rollled Edge
With the stitch selector set on "D", a narrow edge can become a rolled edge. Remove the left needle and the corresponding thread. Clear the stitch fingers. Turn the stitch length adjusting dial clockwise into the rolled hem range and set the dail at 1.5 Set the stitch width to 3.5
Hope this will be of some help. Good luck and have a great day! Lisa
I found my answer by going to the dealer here and asking questions. They were very helpful and friendly. Said that if I need any more help to let them know. I bought a Bernina from them about a year ago. I really like it.
Make sure when you thread the machine you have the thread seated into the tension assembly on top, then make sure you have the threading ports locked and the switch in the proper place for each looper threading, the machine will only partially thread if you do not have the port locked and it will even still sew although not properly.
