The only thing I can think is the stitch selection is not compatible with the presser foot you are using.

You can probably ask your Bernina dealer.

50 year old elnas made stitches by cams. look to see if the machine has a cam in it. you can see this by opening lid on top of machine. cams are black with red or white showing the pattern of the cam. could also have broken cam stack gear. That would require technician with elna experience

SOURCE: How do I do a stretch stitch?

The bes way to hem a t-shirt on a household machine is to use a double needle, straight stitch. You will see two straight stitches on top and zig zag on the back. Just make sure the zig zag catched the top of the hem.

How do I setup Bernina virtuoso 150 to do blanket stitch


Check your machine's stitch options. A lot of older Bernina machines do not have a blanket stitch option. Although, you may find another stitch that will work.

Hi I'm new to sewing! Does my singer have a blanket stitch


Your machine is a beginner model with only 8 stitches. Looking at the photo of the machine, it does not appear to have a blanket stitch.

Usually, only more advanced (and expensive) machines with more stitches will have the blanket stitch.

How to do blanket stitch


Usually, your machine would need to have a blanket stitch selection in order to perform a blanket stitch. If your machine does not offer that option, then you are probably out of luck unless it is a highly advanced computerized model that you can create your own stitch designs.

Can I sew a Blanket stitch with my Bernina 930 Record machine?


Once upon a time, a blanket stitch used to be a long wide zigzag stitch. If you are referring to an electronic stitch version that would look like the inverse of a blind-hem stitch, then no, this is not possible on the 930 record machine.
What is nowadays called a blanket stitch used for quilting applications requires the machine to stop feeding during the stitching cycle to allow for the single stitch to the left and then back again. An electronic step motor machine, common to all newer Bernina machines can do this and or similar functions. That being said, don't be thinking about getting rid of your 930. Better to get one of the newer units for occasional blanket stitching and keep the Swiss made 930. The Bernina 930 is a lifetime machine. Computers machines are not lifetime class machines by virtue of being computers. Electronics are short lived.

Can I go from straight stitches to zigzag stiches and back in the same seam?


Hi Susie,

I can't tell whether you mean straight stitching and then turning your work 180 degrees to stitch atop the straight stitches in zig-zag, or continuing around the corner of your straight stitched side using zig-zag. But you can do either. You can mix up straight and zig-zag stitching at will.

Just ease up to a stop, ensuring the needle is positioned down inside the work when you stop.
Lift the foot.
Adjust to your desired stitch setting.
Lower the foot.
Turn the wheel toward you manually to ensure the stitches will be placed where you want them, and
Slowly engage the power again (via foot or thigh lever).

Hope this helps.

My Viking 500 suddenly stopped running. The machine comes on and will sew and then won't start. Stitches are fine. The computer shows something wrong with the foot. The symbol for the buttonho


The foot pedal has nothing to do with this. You machine is telling you that you have the wrong presser foot on the machine for what you are trying to do.


Do you have your manual? Mine tells me what foot goes with which stitch.

I have no manual for my Elna 1010 sewing machine. My question is how do I thread it and is there a blanket stitch on this machine. Thank you. Joan


There are several websites where manuals can be found:

http://www.tias.com/stores/relics/ has authorised reproductions of many Elna manuals for sale but not yours.

www.diplodocs.com is a free souce but no 1010 there.

www.sewingpartsonline.com is a great site too, and they have yours for sale $US15
link is
http://www.sewingpartsonline.com/instruction-manual-elna-1010.aspx

I don't know this model real well, but I'm guessing it is a front loading bobbin and bobbin case design maybe?? If so, you may well find that just looking at the instructions for any front loading bobbin machine will get you started,
try this link
http://www.sewusa.com/Threading_Diagrams/Threading_Pages/Elna_Sewing_machine_threading/Elna_225_threading_diagram.htm
These Elnitas 225, 244, 245 were front loading bobbin style but "made under licence" and sold by Elna. I think the 1010 may well be a similar design so see if these diagrams help get you under way.

Its always helpful to source the genuine manual if possible though so worth spending the money; manuals contain maintenance info as well as threading up, and different techniques and accessories usually.

Lastly, Blanket stitch. I presume you mean the big chunky stitch where you turn an edge over and it looks like a straight line with a diagonal stitch going to the folded edge at regular intervals like this.
tally_girl_77.jpg Some sewing machines do a similar "overcasting" stitch but it won't be big like you might want on polar fleece or a blanket edge. The commercial blanket stitch you see on blankets will be done by a special purpose industrial machine and it applies a single thread just as you would when doing a blanket stitch by hand. So look at the stitch selection dial on your machine and see if there is something resembling a blanket stitch but it usually would only be 4mm wide, the maximum your machine probably can stitch.

So if you want a genuine blanket stitch, its a needle and heavy thread hand job, there are instructions on how to do at www.sewing.about.com, link is http://sewing.about.com/od/beginner1/ss/blanketstitch.htm

I want a loose button-hole type of stitch to do my first applique by machine. I have put the needle to one side, put on foot #20 -- and now what stitch?


This depends entirely on your model of machine and the kinds of stitches it is designed to make. Not all machines will make the kind of stitch you describe. My machine has a buttonhole stitch, but with slanted bars, and it really doesn't give the right look.

Check your machine manual and look for a stitch that gives you the look you want--you might have a "blanket stitch" option. If your machine doesn't offer a buttonhole or blanket stitch that gives you the look you want, you may want do use a narrow zigzag satin-stitch. You can also do a straight stitch very close to the raw edge of a fused applique but it won't look as tidy.
