I have an Elna 945 which I purchased from a friend last Fall … she was afraid to thread it. I am trying to learn the machine by using different stitches each time I have to use the machine.
I am making a bathing suit skirt from Lycra and though I would use the cover hem (wide) stich on the bottom. I get a bump between the two lines of stitching that I know should not be there. I am also assuming that it has to do with tensions. This is a fully automated machine which I normally do not have to do any adjusting to the tension so I am not sure I am setting everything right.
The stictch seems to be correct just the bump in between the two lines of stitches. The manual says that the underneath stictch (which I have threaded with wooly nylon) should be slightly loose.
Any help that anyone could give me would be greatly appreciated.
