It is skipping stitches.

Use a brand new needle that is a suitable type for the fabric and thread you are sewing. If sewing knit, use a ball-point needle. If sewing woven fabrics, use a sharp needle (ie universal,
Use good quality sewing thread--no old or bargain bin variety.
Be sure to install the needle facing the correct direction. On most machines, the flat side of the needle faces the back of the machine, however, if the bobbin loads on the left side (not from the front), the flat side should face the throat of the machine.
There could also be a burr somewhere that is catching the thread and causing the skipped stitch.

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.

The problem is actually with the upper thread not having enough tension on it. Check your upper tension setting,,,it should be set about mid range of its adjustment (4,5 or 6). To see if the tension is functioning correctly thread the machine and raise the presser foot to its up position and pull thread thru the needle. It should pull easily, lower the presser foot down to the fabric and now the thread should become harder to pull. If there is no change in the pull,then either the thread is not in the tension correctly ot the tension is not working,

How to sew Lycra on my necchi 522? I'm using a stretch needle. It goes up and down, fabric advances, but does not pick up bobbin thread - so no stitches!


Knit fabric sometimes plays a little havoc with machines. Be sure you are using a brand new needle. Also, ballpoint/jersey needles will usually work better with knit fabrics like t-shirt fabric. For very stretchy fabric like Lycra, you might want to try a Stretch Needle.

If it still will not stitch, check your machine on regular woven fabric with a universal needle. Could be your machine is slightly out of time, especially if you have recently sewn over & hit a pin.

How do I set the blanket stitch on my machine?


If you have the owner's manual, it should show the blanket stitch among the stitch selections for your machine. FWIW, a lot of vintage machines do not have a blanket stitch available, so don't be disappointed if your machine does not have it.

I have a Necchi 537L it was sold as a comercial machine that could do leather. Mine wont do soft paper! Whats up?


This is not a commercial machine and will give you trouble trying to sew upholstery,especially if you use heavy upholstery thread. You will get loops on the bottom.
It will sew only short stitches,No matter how long the stitch length is, because it only feeds the fabric from the bottom and it will stick.
It should sew regular fabric with normal threads with no problems. There is a pressure adjustment on the top of this machine which may be where your problem is located.Look in your book for instructions.Also, make sure the feed dogs are in the highest position. I don't know how long you've had the machine but if it has been awhile,remove the needle plate and clean the lint out from between the feed dog teeth.

I have a necchi 4595, and well I cannot figure out the straight stitch....the dial doesn't show one?


It's just in the front panel, where the drawing of all the built in stitches are, it's the drawing number eleven from the left, you'll see a zig zag (red) and a straight stitch (black) Select A group of stitches (knob with the arrow) and then select the eleventh stitch (same knob but use the dial, look the manual) and then select zero on your stitch width dial. Hope that helps :)
