On your sewing machine, it is possible to adjust the needle position to regulate the needle if it is not the same for the straight stitch and the zig-zag stitch. Normally this is an adjustment with the screw to align the needle in the correct position. On this type of machine, the needle position does not really move or can be adjusted. You can use this guide here from Kenmore on how to regulate your needle and adjust it. Just keep in mind if you try to do this one the needle can hit the feed dog and break on you. www.manualslib.com/.../Kenmore-385-16231400.html?page=36

Adjusting the needle on any machine can be tricky at times and not all machine (even same brand) work in the same manner.
