Subject: Bernina 1030 twin needle how to question Date: 8/31/13 8:40 AM

I am considering buying a Bernina 1030. I cannot get it to sew well with a twin needle. Do other people use a twin needle with this machine? Would a thread stand help? I put both threads through the final thread guide, would it help if I left one out? Thank you!

I was taught in a Bernina class that when using a twin needle, the thread on the left thread holder went through on the left side of the tension disk and through the left needle, and the thread on the right holder went through on the right side of the tension disk and the right needle. Only one thread goes through the final thread guide (just before the needle). I always put the left thread through it, but it may not matter. Note-this was the instruction for an 1130 and a 1630, but it seems like it would apply to your machine. Also, the left thread unrolls from the back side of the spool and the right thread unrolls from the front side (the spools unroll in opposite directions). Hope this helps!

I used to own a Bernina 1030, and loved that machine (traded up to a B 230 for the blanket-stitch for applique). I did use a twin needle when I had it. We've been sewing knit maxi skirts at the store where I work, and some of the ladies' machines occasionally skip stitches. We've been telling the ladies to bump the needle position one notch to one side or the other, usually to the right. And loosen both tensions (upper and lower). Also, try using a walking foot if you have one.

Good Luck!
