I just got my Juki F600 yesterday and am playing around with it today. The brochure says that it does sashiko style stitches with invisible thread. Has anyone tried this and if so, how does it work? I'm fairly new to decorative sewing, so not familiar with it. Also wondering which stitch pattern do I use?

Thanks.

This has to be the "hand-look quilt stitch" that is now being called a sashiko stitch. I don't have your machine but it will look like a straight stitch with a space in the middle. You would use invisible thread in your bobbin...loosen your machine's top tension a tad and use regular thread on top. you can lengthen your stitch length some to suit your tastes. Invisible thread is much finer and more suitable for that technique than it used to be so you will be able to achieve better results. Many machines have this stitch and it was a selling point several years ago but it is slower than regular stitching and not used on big quilt projects so "sashiko" stitch is a better term for it. The biggest thing to remember about your decorative stitches is to always use stabilizer behind the fabric. It makes a huge difference. This is not necessary with the sashiko stitch bc it is done w/ batting between 2 layers (quilt sandwich). Thank you for my reminding me of this stitch...i kinda forgot it was an option!

I've played with this and the Juki Rep put the invisible thread in the top and regular thread in the bobbin. you have to use stitch #65 on the 123 setting. I just did a stitch out and I didn't have to change the tension or anything, it works beautifully. I love the Machine more and more...

Yes, I also saw this done with the invisible thread on the spool pin, and the regular thread in the bobbin. I couldn't remember what setting it was on, though, so thank you! I am thinking of doing this for jacket topstitching.

I also saw this with the invisible thread on the top for the Juki hzl-85 which I am looking at as my new travel machine if the Pfaff Passport is too expensive when it finally comes out. The Juki does a lovely job with it and if you use quilting cotton thread on the bottom and lengthen the stitch just a tad it looks like real sashiko from a distance. Especially if you do white or light thread on dark fabric. Jukes are specifically made to accommodate this stitch (since Juki is in Japan , the home of sashiko)

Good luck and happy stitching!

OK, call me old fashioned and out of touch, but "hand-look quilt stitch" is an absolute contradiction in terms. There is nothing hand looking about it, and the back of the work looks like a real dog's breakfast.

If you want hand-look stitches, sew them by hand. If you want to use a sewing machine, stick with what it does best, and stop pretending it can do something it can't.
