Hi, Can anyone please tell me the name of these stitches in this link and their basic function? Im especially confused about the jagged stitches and the one that kind of looks like a blanket stitch (is it a blanket edge stitch)?


Thank you

I'm looking for Janome 4052 or PRL25,contact me if you have one to sell or trade Smiley

3 >>Zig zag : against fraing or for stretch fabrics
4 >>Zig zag with smaller stitches inside the stitch  ,  , same as 3
5 >>blind hemming  for elastice fabrics
6 >> not sure but it looks like a stitch you use to sew elastic band onto fabric , like in nickers
7 >> never seen befor
8 >> That is just a fancy stitch ,

10>> Could be overlock stitch , you use it to  finish off edges

2>> elastic straight stitch , 3 stitches next to each other for extra strenght
