Re: Embroidery unit veil

My understanding of "veil" is that which is over a bride's face. I'm having trouble understanding how that relates to the embroidery arm. Any chance you could provide a photo?


Embroidery unit veil

Else
 

Hi every one

I have a Janome 15000mc and have previously had a bearing changed because there was a veil on the arm. 

It was a fault on the arm when I bought it and the dealer repaired on warranty, but now the problem has come up again. The veil is 1/8 - 2/8 inch on the outermost point of the arm, and makes my embroideries inaccurate. 

I wonder why this happens and can I repair it myself (or my husband - he is quite handy) ? 

Sincerely Else Marie

June, I think we all go through a 'learning process' that is unique to our individual situation, but I agree that is sure is nice when you can get the benefit of someone else's 'learning process' and not have to duplicate every mistake everyone else has ever made, and can feel more at ease using machines that might hold something of an 'intimidation factor' for us.

I couldn't agree with Cheryl more.

This is the 'greatest" group I've ever had the pleasure of belonging too. Not only do you get "tremendous" support, but you get "lot's of it" from, many, many people.

Sometimes it takes a village and this group is that and more.

I also love hearing the personal stories. Cheryl, Favy (spelling), Cat, to name just a few - you have almost "bared your souls" and I love each and every one of you.

Thanks for all of you!!!!!!!!!!!!

June

Hi Everyone,

This group is GREAT! I shared what I knew, asked a few questions and got such good responses. Like I mentioned I only ever did this technique in a long day and 3 or more hours of travel to get there and then again back home (we did stay one night) and did so many things that a person’s mind is boggled and this was JUST THE SERGER - a simple plain 4 thread Singer serger with bad tension on most days.

This was back in the 80’s when I was somewhere around 40 years old - had children somewhere between the youngest about of 6 - 10 and and the oldest being 13-17 with the 2 in between. I had a wonderful husband that can cook, and was tremendous with the children and didn’t mind his turn at lonely parenting.

I came home so overwhelmed that I didn’t actually do much of any of the things I’d learned, but did have a binder full of samples - which I may still have somewhere in my house, but sadly that particular serger is LONG gone, but I have a much better one now and the techniques are still rattling in my brain somewhere.

I so glad that some of you have “old” books to refer to and know where they are to help us out. I think I might be inspired to try some of these tricks again. I have 15 and 9 year old grand daughters (my little cleaning maids) that sew - some of this might be of interest to them in their world of sewing. They like to experiment and Ava (15) is really a good young sewist and her cooking skills are fabulous too. I guess “home schooling” might not be so bad after all. My other grand children don’t have the time to learn such things in detail.

That's great, June!  Sure helps to test/set-up with different color threads so you can see what each is actually doing and know which to adjust.  Glad you're feeling better about using your serger now.

Hi Everyone:

 

Once again, I cannot thank all of you enough for helping me thru this very frustrating time (smile).

 

But, I think I finally have success.

 

I spent a few hours today playing around with the settings (thanks to everyone’s input) & I think I now have a “suitable” flatlock stitch.

 

I’m attaching a photo.  I could not have gotten to this stage without all of you.

 

If anyone has any comments/thoughts, please share, I’m open to anything.

 

Also hoping everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving, Stay Safe!

 

June

More on Flatlocking! this is from an instruction book I purchased way back in 1993.
1) First set up the machine for a Balanced 3 thread stitch (either left or right needle) Wide width, short to medium length stitch.
2) loosen the needle tension almost completely
3) Tighten the lower looper until the thread forms a straight line on the edge of the fabric. The upper looper usually won't need adjusting
On the underside of the fabric The needle thread should look like a "V" intersecting with the lower looper thread
4) Always guide the fabric so that the stitches hang halfway off the edge of the fabric. That way when you open the seam apart there's room for the 2 layers to lay flat against one another

Nice find in that old book, Favy!  I have some old books I wouldn't trade for the world.

Thanks so much to Favymtz.

 

Love these tips.

 

I have taken a 3 ring binder and printed out “all” the great tips/hints I’ve received, hoping this will be extremely helpful going forward.

 

Thanks again!

Even More on Flatlocking!!
I forgot to mention that even though both Tracy and I said not to do a 4 thread overlock, the book also mentioned that it's possible to do a Flatlock with 4 threads if you loosen both the needles tension.
BUT, most machines can't be adjusted loose enough so that both the needle threads will allow the fabric to lay flat (as we've already mentioned.)
So if that's the case if we tighten both needle tensions slightly then the effect will be like a corded stitching.
I have not tried that, nor think it would be an effect that I would like.
It would be nice to take the time to make samples of all kinds of stitch techniques on our sergers just like we do when we make Stitch Book for our decorative stitches!
On a nice winter day...
