How do I drop the feed dogs for quilting on my Brother XL 4011 sewing machine

It should be included in the owner's manual. (An internet search did not turn up a manual for your machine, but a model close to your machine may operate very similarly.) You can also contact Brother Support.

This may help:

The other possibility is that the feed dogs on your model do not actually drop. There may be an accessory (darning plate) in your kit that covers the feed dogs during darning or free motion quilting. (Shown on page 38 of the following manual):

I have a jem 639 how do I cover the feed dogs

Probably best to consult your owner's manual. Either your machine has a lever or dial to drop & raise the feed dogs. If your machine does not have that capability, you would need a feed dog cover for your machine.

How can i do free motikn quilting with my machine

On page 35 of your manual (see link below), there are instructions for darning. It looks like your machine needs to have the darning plate installed over the feed dogs before you can perform darning or free motion quilting. If you do not have the darning plate, then you will need to get one.,d.cGU

How can i keep the feed dogs from dropping when I sew?

Need more info. What kind of Bernina are you using? Feed dogs normally go up and down when sewing to move the fabric forward. Is that what you mean? Or have you lowered the feed dogs to do free motion quilting or darning and now they stay down?

Free motion, but can't find the cover fotr the feed dogd

Set the stitch length to 0, stitch selector to straight stitch. Find a thin piece of plastic or cardboard and punch a smooth hole in it for the needle to go through. Tape the plastic over the feed dogs with the hole aligned under the needle, and you should be good to go.
The fake credit cards that show up in junk mail are perfect for this.

No feed dog cover can't find. like free motion

Set the stitch length to 0. That will keep the feed dogs from moving. Drop the feed dogs, if possible, and if not, cover them with a thin piece of plastic with a hole punched out for the needle to go through. Something like the plastic that supports raw bacon strips or an old credit card will work. Tape the plastic down all around and you'll be good to go.

I have a brother XL 5130 should I have either a plate or lever to drop the feed dogs? I also misplaced my manual can you send me the English ssection thanks Barbara

This machine does not have a feed dog drop, but it does include a feed dog cover that covers them so you can do free motion. The cover is a little piece of black plastic that kind of resembles this: 3d18346.png

Here is the link to the manual,
Let me know if you need more help, Chris

Dropping Feed dogs on kenmore model 19233

Pull out the removable table and you will see the drop down feed dogs switch lever behind the back of the machine. Move that lever to the left or right to have feed dogs go back to normal sewing mode OR for embroidery mode.

Dropping Feed dogs on kenmore model 19233

Remove extension table/accessory box by gentle pulling it away from machine. You are left with just the free arm. In the back of the free arm, lower left corner, you will fine the feed dog lever. Push the leaver to the right to lower the feed dog.Instructions for lowering and raising the feed dog are on page 48 of your owner's manual. Good luck!
