Straight Stretch Stitch

Straight Stretch Stitch

The Straight Stretch Stitch can be used to reinforce seams of sportswear in stretch and non-stretch fabrics, and for curved seams which take a lot of strain.  This stitch is stronger than regular straight stitch because it locks three times – forward, backward and forward again.

Applications


Stretch Seams

This stitch can be used to reinforce seams of stretch fabrics. The stitch is stronger than a regular straight stitch because it sews the same stitch three times - forward, backward and forward again. Because the stitch stretches, it's a good choice for seams on medium to heavy weight stretch fabrics. The stitch will stretch with the fabric when the fabric is stretched. Use a Ball Point needle to help prevent skipped stitches on stretch fabrics. Learn more about needles on the SINGER website.

Heirloom Stitching

This stitch can be used to create a delicate heirloom look for fabrics such as organza, organdy and batiste. Use a SINGER Wing Needle (additional accessory), which creates little holes each time it makes a stitch. Use lightweight thread in the needle and bobbin, as regular all-purpose thread is too thick and will "fill up" the holes. Learn more about needles on the SINGER website.

Decorative Stitching

Use this stitch to embellish your sewing projects with a single row, multiple rows, or even in combination with other decorative stitches. Experiment with various types of thread such as rayon thread, all-purpose thread, metallic thread, topstitching thread, or even 30wt and 12wt cotton. Be sure to use a needle that is appropriate for the type of thread you are using, and stabilizer to help support the fabric and stitches. Learn more about needles and stabilizer on the SINGER website.

Reinforced Seams

This stitch can be used to reinforce seams of heavy woven fabrics, such as denim, canvas, and duck cloth. The stitch is stronger than a regular straight stitch becuase it sews the same stitch three times - forward, backward and forward again. Use a SINGER size 16 or size 18 needle for sewing these types of heavyweight fabrics. More information about needles can be found on the SINGER website.
