How do I avoid breaking a needle on a 26 foot beginning a free motion project after programing the foot choice and lowering the foot?


#26 is an embroidery foot. Why are you using an embroidery foot for free motion quilting? A #24 free motion embroidery foot will work but not the #26. Try using a darning foot that is just a smidgen shorter so there is space between it and the needleplate for you to freely move the fabric. (Adding a Supreme Slider sheet to the work surface of your machine helps make the fabric glide much smoother.) A standard presser foot is made to press the fabric against the feed dogs so the feed dogs will move the fabric. When free motion quilting, you would drop the feed dogs and move the material with your hands.

Depends which model Bernina you have (new or old style presser feet), which will work on your machine. There are also many generic darning/FMQ feet available that will work on your machine.

I dropped the feed dogs on my Necchi 535FA to free motion quilt, but the material won't move. What else do I need to do?


MAKE SURE THE DOGS HAVE BEEN DROPPED. YOU NEED TO ALSO HAVE A PRESSURE FOOT THAT IS ROUND; ABOUT A DIME SIZE. ADJUST THE PRESSURE ON THE FOOT. IF YOU'RE WAITING FOR THE MACHINE TO MOVE THE MATERIAL IT ISN'T GOING TO HAPPEN. THAT IS WHERE YOU COME IN. MOVE IT WHERE YOU WANT IT. I HOPE THIS IS HELPFUL.

There is a loud squeaky noise when machine quilting a meandering stitch with a darning foot. The feed dogs are down, stitch width is 0, length stitch is 2.5. The machine does not squeak when using regular...


Is the darning foot aftermarket or genuine darning foot for your particular model...If it is aftermarket, it may not be the correct length. What is you model?

Can a Bernina 801Sport be used for quilting?


Any sewing machine can be used for quilting.

For free-motion stitching, the presser foot has to be lowered or covered and you need to use a darning foot.

Refer to your manual for lowering or covering the feed dogs.

If you do not have a darning foot, you need to contact your local Bernina dealer to see if the have a foot for your model of sewing machine.

You can buy after market presser feet for Bernina, but you also need an adapter. Check sewingmachinesplus.com or Clotilde.com for these items.

How do I set the tension on my Necchi 3101? I want to freehand motion quilt on it.


The tension is not changed.

You lower the feed dogs, or change the stitch length to zero and cover the feed dogs by taping an index card (make a hole for the needle) over them.

Be sure to use a darning or free motion foot and have the presser foot down when stitching.
