Hi Everyone,
I have a Viking Emerald 118 and I am still learning about its stitches and when you should use them. (Wish this info was more detailed in the manual.) I have a stitch that is in the stretch stitch category. It is is 2 straight lines and they call it an elastic stretch stitch. I was wondering what it is used for.
Thank you!

Perhaps your dealer knows of a workbook for your machine, or will show you what the different stitches are for.

It is probably what I call a triple straight stitch. It has stretch because it is sewn first forward, then back and then forward. It is very strong but still can stretch, making great for sewing places like crotch seams or any place where strength with stretch are needed. I use it for sewing my polar fleece socks. I would suggest just sewing it out at the suggested settings to see what it looks like when sewn. If it looks like a heavy straight stitch, then this is what it is.
I have also used it to look like a hand embroidered lines. (it resembles a hand backstitch)

I was thinking triple stitch, too. That is one of my favorite stitches for heavier top stitching and I use it with my satin stitch appliqué to emphasize my stitching.
