Question about Sewing Machines
Settings are pretty much the same as a single thread, BUT BE CAREFUL with zig-zag/decorative stitches as the twin needle will strike the presser foot, needle plate, or bobbin case. Boom--one broken, expensive needle! And possibly a piece of needle in your eye! Check to make sure the twin needle will fit through the holes in the presser foot and needle plate. Some twin needles are wider than others. Also, be sure to thread one thread completely and then thread the second so they do not become twisted.

On what machine?

The site shows a twin needle setting.
Have you looked at your manual or bought the more expensive book from your dealer? I have found my book for my Evolve a VERY good investment (70 bucks, but worth every penny these past 2 years!)
Baby Lock have very good cust. service either on the web or right at your dealer. Most dealers will give free lessons upon request.
I hope this helped

you can just use the straight stitch.If you want to use a fancy stitch you have to be careful that the throw, as I call it is not too wide as you could break the needles and put the timing out. Also use a longer stitch than normal.Also use the stretch twin needle.

Twin needles can be used on any machine. Just make sure you use the correct presser foot......one that allows both needles to work without hitting the foot. Also.........you cannot zig-zag or use any other fancy stitch with a twin needle.......it is strictly for straight sewing. You have to use 2 spools of thread .....thread your machine with both threads as if they were one thread but separate the threads when you get to the needle. There is no change to the bobbin. Happy sewing. I can't be bothered to go to all this trouble so I just sew 2 rows to get the same look. Ofcourse you have to be very good at sewing perfectly straight seams doing it this way. Try both methods on a scrap and see which method you prefer.
