Whether you are just starting out with sewing or you are a seasoned sewing enthusiast, there are a few important functions of your sewing machine that you should know. These functions include the Thread tension dial, and Stitch selector dial. These dials should always be on your sewing machine.


To make a stitch, catch the top thread from your needle with the bottom thread of the bobbin. Bobbins are an essential part of the cheap small sewing machine. A bobbin of the present invention includes a first flange, a second flange, and a thread end housing positioned between the first flange and the second flange.

A thread come-off preventing unit is also provided. The fifth aspect of the invention consists of a protrusion section that extends from the flange on the main body of the bobbin and creates a gap between the second and first flanges. When the thread end of bobbin thread n tries to climb over the protrusion section, it cannot reach the gap. The gap is smaller that the thread diameter d bobbin thread, and the thread end Nt of bobbin Thread n is located near the housing surface 12a of the main body.

The thread end housing also has a thread passage groove 1″. The groove extends to 21 inches from the body. The protrusion section 31 projects from the flange of the babbin main body and projects from the outer flange to the other flange.

Feed dogs

The feed dog is essential to any sewing project, no matter if you are using straight lines or freehand. These tiny metal teeth sit on the stitch plate underneath the presser foot and help to pull fabric through the machine at an even pace.

They also help to provide a high-quality stitch. Some sewing machines have a special plate that covers the feed dogs. This is useful for freehand quilting or other free-motion sewing.

There are two basic types of feed dogs. They are either light-duty or heavy-duty. Light-duty feed dogs are generally lower in height. This allows the presser foot to be placed higher on the machine.

The best way to set up feed dogs in most machines is to place them in the “up” position. This allows for better control of fabric and precision. If you are using the “up” position, you should check your stitch length to make sure it is set to the right length.

If you aren’t sure about the proper settings, you can check with the manufacturer of your sewing machine. Also, make sure to check the position of the feed dog lever. If it’s not, you may need to adjust the machine to make it work. This isn’t the easiest thing to do, but a Sewing Machine Master repair technician can help you. You can find new ones online or ask your machine’s manufacturer to help.

Stitch selector dial

A dial is used to select a stitch for a sewing machine. It can vary from machine to machine. It could also be a button, or a touchscreen input.

When choosing a stitch, you should first look at the instructions. Your machine’s manual should tell you how to select the stitch you want and how to adjust the width and length of the stitch.

A stitch is the length that holds two pieces together of fabric. The length of the stitch will depend on the type of fabric you are sewing. This can range from a few inches to several inches.

A straight stitch, a stitch with a zigzag pattern, and a stitch with a buttonhole are the most common stitches. Machines will have different lengths and widths. To achieve uniform stitches, you can adjust the tension of your thread.

Changing the length of a stitch will move the needle up and down in a specified position. This is especially useful for knit fabrics as the stitch will remain in place even if the fabric is stretched.

You can also adjust the tension on your thread by turning the dial on your sewing machine. The dial should be lubricated to prevent a clunking noise when turning it.

Your sewing machine’s stitch selector dial may be stuck. This is most likely due to old oil, dirt, or debris. It may need to be cleaned to get it working again. It may be a good idea for you to replace the dial if it is stuck.

If you are using a computerized machine, you may have a menu screen that allows you to adjust the stitch length and width. It may also allow you to backstitch, which will make the seams stronger. A thread take-up lever may also be available on sewing machines. The thread guide is a small metal piece that allows the upper thread to feed smoothly.

Thread tension dial

Having problems with your sewing machine’s thread tension dial can be frustrating. You can read the instructions in the manual to learn how to adjust your sewing machine tension.

To adjust the tension of your sewing machine, you’ll first need to make sure it’s properly threaded. You can adjust the tension of your top thread on most sewing machines. Too tight thread can cause the seams to become distorted and pucker. Too loose thread will make the stitch appear stretched and uneven. If you’re unsure about how to adjust the tension of your sewing machine, use a piece of fabric to test the tension.

The tension dial is usually numbered from 0 to 9. Lower numbers indicate less tension. Higher numbers indicate tighter tension. You may have a loose top or bobbin thread around the base of your sewing machine that is causing problems with thread tension.

Depending on the make and model of your sewing machine, you may also have an adjustment screw on the bobbin case. This is a small screw that’s located near the thread openings. This screw is without markings and adjusts the tension of the bobbin thread. You can adjust this dial to achieve the ideal tension.
