... not for a kiss ! ... :-)
Forgive my ignorance - I'm not a sewist - I just like the machines.
I just picked up another Elna blue-top - Star 62C -
- a quick cleaning & a few drops of oil - away it sews !
The 6 built-in stitches work OK ; I tried a few embroidery cams
& it seemed to sew OK.
When running it through various zig-zag widths & lengths
I noticed some fabric puckering. Bobbin tension felt a little strong
so I made that adjustment. The stitches improved but still puckering
the fabric. Changed the needle & presser foot. .. didn't help.
Any tips ? Feed-dogs seem OK - is there a way to make them
less agressive ? grasping at straws ..
Would the type of fabric or type of thread cause puckering ?
Any suggestions are appreciated. Taking it into a professional
isn't really in the cards for a $ 50. machine.
