    Which machine will give me a beautiful blanket stitch? My Elna is to fancy for a simple stitch.
    Thanks

    I purchased an inexpensive brother just for the blanket stitch because my older fancy pfaff didn't have one! And it works well for that!

    My Bernina Artista 630 has a great one and what I love is that it also has a double blanket stitch.

    My Elna 7200 Quilters Dream Pro has a nice blanket stitch and my Singer Quantum Futura CE-200 also has one but it only looks good with thinner thread.

    The Brother CS6000i - about $180 at Walmart.com and it has 60 stitches including several blanket/applique stitches.

    Plus it now comes with a walking foot, a free-motion quilting foot and a case, in addition to all the other feet and accessories that it usually comes with. :)

    I have this machine and it's really a good one for a quick task.

    Thanks closer to my price range. My Elna 6003 was recommended by my mother-in-law, to bad it does not have a good blanket stitch

    I have a Kenmore Elite that has a wide and narrow blanket stitch, both are very nice looking. You can find the same stitch on a Janome 2010 and other Janome machines as well.

    I just got this machine this past fall, although I had the usual 'lessons' I cant remember how to do most of the things they showed us.
    What stitch number # the blanket stitch do you use?? Do you adjust anything?

    Good morning,
    I have a Janome 6260; the blanket stitching is wonderful. I use it often. It looks like it might be out of your price range, but if you found one for sale, might be worth it. I like to use it with varigated thread on some of my smaller pieces. Pumpkin12

    I use stitch #45....stitch length 2.7........stitch width 2.5.

    If I want a heavier look.......I use #59.......stitch length 3.0.......stitch width 3.4. Hope this helps!
