Question about Baby Lock Ellure

1 Answer

Proper Settings I have a 6300 machine. I have used it only a couple of times. I find the manual hard to understand. All I want is to sew a straight stitch on ordinary cotton fabric. I need to know the best tension setting, stitch length and stich width, Also the setting on the dial on the front of the machine. I do not understand the numbers, like 2/14 and 3/17, etc. What should I set this on for a straight stitch.

A good standard tension setting is usually around 4.5.
If you find it to be looping on the bottom, raise your top tension. If it's pulling bobbing thread to the top, lower your top tension.
For straight stitch, your stitch width should be set to zero, although on some machines (and I believe your Baby Lock to be one of them,) the stitch width setting will change your needle position.
Stitch length is simply a matter of preference.

How do I use the patterns (marked pattern selection) on front of machine. User manual does not tell how and company does not have any other information on this.


It appears that your machine basically does variations of 2 stitches: straight stitch and zig-zag, plus buttonholes. Take some time to learn your machine by downloading the Workbook (Wkbk) and working through it doing the various stitches on your machine. You will eventually figure out how to combine different selections to achieve the stitches you want. The owner's manual will show you which basic settings will make which stitches.

Please explain to me how to adjust the numerical, digital buttons on my 7430 Singer sewing machine?


I just took a look at your user's manual, and boy--you're right, and I've been a computer systems engineer for about 30 years!

Actually, it's easier to figure out by DOING rather than looking at the description on page 35. Basically, selection is divided into two categories--utility, that is, stitches you would use for ordinary sewing, like stretch stitches, zigzag stitches, straight stitch, buttonholes, etc. That is located on the left column, with the arrow keys used for navigation in the middle. The display only shows 5 patterns at a time, so to see all of them, you have to keep pressing the down arrow. Once you have selected the stitch itself, you can then select the stitches width and length, and if it's available for that particular stitch, you can mirror (flip) the stitch, and use a twin needle (if it's available for that design)

The decorative and letter stitches are selected on the right column, and work he same way--they are displayed 5 at a time, etc, and selecting stitch width and length, mirror, and twin needle. However, additionally, you can choose to have the pattern sewn once (the default) or continuously.

I hope that helps!

Why won't my brother model 888 sewing machine , sew in a straight line I can only get it to do a zig zag stitch , I have lost the manual and this is quite an old machine although has been hardly used


The feed dogs under your pressure foot. Take a look. Is one side of the feed dogs worn more? If so you may need to replace your feed dogs. Just use a screwdriver and take out and order them or go to your local sewing machine repair shop and ask for some new ones.

I'm trying to get my mother's Singer Touch & Sew Deluxe 645 to sew a straight stitch. I don't want to buy a manual since the machine rarely gets used and I have limited time to "fix"


Not much information to go on. What do you mean it won't sew a straight stitch. It just won't sew a straight line? It won't form a stitch? What?

Hi. First, I'd recommend you get a replacement manual. They are really useful. Check out http://sewingpartsonline.com/sewing-machine-instruction-manuals.aspx.

I assume you have different stitches on the machine and a diagram of some sort showing what each stitch looks like. Find one that looks like:

---^---^---^--- (maybe on its side). That's the blindstitch. Some machines require you use a blindstitch foot with the stitch, but some don't. Without the user's manual, it's hard to say what your machine requires.

Good luck and let me know what happens.

Ordinary straight stitching/Husqvarna 2000 SL


ordinary straight stitching is normlly the first button (only one) in the stitch selection area. Look for symbol/picture showing a vertical broken line on the displays.

Ordinary straight stitching


When you turn on a #1 Husqvarna Viking the machine defaults all the electronic settings to do a straight stitch at a 2.5mm stitch length, that equates to approximately 10 stitches per inch. The top tension dial sets itself automatically and the only other dial is on the left side of the machine. That dial sets the pressure on the foot that holds down the fabric. It's normal setting is 6.

Stitches


Usually a walking foot is for straight forward stitching only.It keeps the many layers from shifting for you. The "hand-look" quilting takes a couple stitches forward then one back. If you look close, you will see about every other stitch is thicker and stands out more.

How do I change the stiches?


You can do all of these stitches by using different combinations of your stitch selector, stitch width and stitch feed knobs, for instance, on the panel I can see on your machine:

http://www.jo-ann.com/joann/product/images/52659.jsp?CATID=cat3122&PRODID=prd11333

Stitches 1, 2 & 3 are straight stitches, centered, left and right. Really basic stuff, not different stitches at all. 4,5,6,7 & 8 are zig-zag stitches of different widths. 9 is the widest zig-zag (no. 8) on a finer stitch length, etc...

I think you should try and get an instruction manual for your machine. After a lengthy search of my usual manual sources, I've determined that that this may not be so easy. I think you should contact White on their 800 number and let them try and help you... 1-800-331-3164.

If you found this helpful, please vote generously as I receive nothing other than acknowledgement for my time.
