Husqvarna Sewing Machines - Page 3 - Popular Questions, Answers, Tips & Manuals

well the question is
do you want the machine to do something different to what you are doing now
It has lasted for 18 years and you must be happy with the way it has been working
Maybe all it needs is a good service from an authorized service agent to have any worn bushes /parts replaced
Machine today are smarter , fancier but far less reliable than older machines

Your tension is off. Start by using the sewing computer setting for thick fabric. Sew "test swatches" on scraps of the fleece you're planning to sew until your swatch stitches look correct.

It looks like there are a few stitches among the quilting stitches (Row 2) that are blanket stitches; these are all stitches with a stitch to the left and a line of straight stitch. Stitch patterns 16, 17, and 18 are the ones to check out. Stitch 17 might be closer to the look of a hand-sewn blanket stitch. Stitch 16 has two straight stitches for every stitch to the left. Stitch 18 has a one to one ratio of stitches to the left for every stitch to the left.

You can see the stitches available on the Husqvarna Tribute 140C on the product page: . The direct link to the list is here: . These stitches are also shown starting on page 44 of the manual, .

I hope this helps.

Hi, The machine has knobs for stitch length and width. Also, there is a small white button that drops the feed dog for darning. It is located below the knobs and locks in the down position, push it in and up slightly to get it to release and the feed dog will come up..
It is also possible that the stitch length is stuck in the Zero length position, which would require you to remove the back plastic cover to get at the mechanism for oiling. Be careful the old plastic will break easily.

interesting problem. you need to take it to a repair facility - this problem is NOT resolvable by a user.

If it's a mechanical machine, most likely the stitch width mechanism is frozen due to old oil. Apply a couple drops of liquid Tri-Flow Synthetic Lube to the stitch width mechanism and then direct hot air from a handheld hairdryer into the area. Repeat as needed until the mechanism moves freely.

Increasing the top tension (and possibly decreasing the bottom tension) will cause the top thread to pull the bobbin thread up.
