I discovered a darning stitch today on a Bernina machine, and am just wondering if the f600 has something similar that you would recommend?

Ok so I've googled and found we have a darning stitch. will have to have a play!
Hmmm I cant quite work out how to get it to not be long, seems to only have one size length it'll do?

No suggestions? *sobs* I want to learn how to use it properly. the stitch length can be adjusted but the overall length seems to stay the same. which is about 4cm. no point if we only need a 2cm darn

The manual doesn't explain this feature, but it's probably similar to the darning stitch on a Janome. You can find the explanation on page 41 (or something close to that) here:

Thanks I'll have a look. on the Bernina 380 I used yesertday at work you stitched how long you wanted the overall darn, pressed reverse and that was the length stitched.
I've tried that on my machine and doesnt do anything, so will check the Janome and see if theres something there that may give an indication

That's interesting how the Janome does it, I will give it a go. It seems the slow speed means you can get a smaller overall darn on the janome, so I'll have to give that a go, nothing to lose by trying

From the Juki workbook:

Is a predefined program that automatically creates a set of seven lines. Width and length of program can be adjusted (cannot be made longer than the longest stitch on machine or wider than 7mm) Once the program ends, the program creates a jump stitch down and over to the left and begins next section of darning....rotate or move fabric as needed to sew additional sections. To keep darning in a more localized area, stop sewing after first section is completed. Program is most useful when overlapped to create a strong area and a closer weave of the original fabric. Automatic Lock/Trim option can be added. Then when reverse is pushed, lock stitches are added and threads are cut.

HTH!!

Hmm looks as though you cannot make it any smaller than the defined length within the machine. I'll grab a couple of photos

Actually now I re-read, it does work! I just went and made my stitch length shorter. (about 1.2 I changed it to. 2.1 was the automatic stitch length) and now it's shorter! fantastic!

THANK YOUUUUUU!
