Do I need to use tension with free motion foot


Yes, the tension setting for 'free motion' and for 'sewing' is the same AND there must be tension; otherwise the top thread will form huge loops on the underside and eventually totally jam. Also make sure that the presser foot is down ... it is often easily left up as the 'free motion foot' disguises it.
The stitch length is irrelevant in free motion as the stitch length is determined by how fast the fabric is moved by the operator while maintaining constant speed (or close to constant).
A couple more items to check: make sure that the 'feed dogs' are either lowered or covered (depending on your machine model) AND that the 'free motion foot' is installed correctly.
Enjoy free motioning.

Like the last pair of photos here? http://www.picturetrail.com/sfx/album/view/22521551 Clean the machine, rethread from scratch with the presser foot UP while you're threading the top of the machine, fetch up the bobbin thread, and hold the bobbin and top thread ends together behind the presser foot while you're starting each seam -- just for the first 2-3 stitches of each seam.

Have a brand new Singer 1507 that keeps jamming the bobbin thread. Have followed threading and winding bobbin instructions closely, but am still having problems with the bobbin thread jamming after 1-2...


I would try adjusting the tension on the machine - this sometimes causes the bobbin thread to jam while sewing. Re thread the entire machine including the top thread. Also it is recommended to use new thread as old thread can ball up after time. If no luck I would call the store you purchased the machine from.

How to use a blind hem stitch foot on the White overlock 2000


The blind hem stitch foot is actually just a guide to keep the folded edge of the fabric away from the cutters, and close enough to the needle, to catch a snippit of fabric to actually hem the item you are feeding thru the machine.
The trick is in the folding, and this vid clip is a good guide for the folding technique. Keep in mind that the 'lip' of fabric she is talking about will be overlocked, and your hem will have alot more 'give', providing a stretch that would be helpful for a stretch fabric.

Thread jams


Hi! I've had this happen to me many times and it is so very frustrating! First, take the bobbin out and also the bobbin assembly and clean the entire area of all lint, fuzz, little bits of thread....get it as clean as you can. Take out the upper thread too. Clean and oil. Change the needle. Make sure you're using the appropriate size and type of needle and thread for the fabric. Take off the needle plate and look for any nicks or scratches. If you've got them, you can get emery cloth from a good hardware store (often in the plumbing department) and polish them out (or mostly out).

Rethread the machine, carefully following the instruction manual. Use your basic, normal settings. Using a scrap of the fabric you're trying to gather, sew a seam and see if everything works ok. You may need to hold the top and bobbin thread firmly behind the needle as you sew the first few stitches (I find this little trick helps a lot to prevent birdsnests).

To gather, sew three parallel lines of long, basting stitches (you really don't need a special foot or special settings other than to make the stitch a long one). Don't backstitch, reverse, or lockstitch either end, and leave the thread long when you cut it. Pull the three bobbin threads and the fabric with gather nicely along them.

Something to keep in mind--if you're trying to gather very sheer fabric on a zigzag machine, you may need to replace the throat plate with the zigzag hole for a throat plate with a single, small hole for a straight stitch. I've run into this situation before, and ended up using one of my antique straight-stitch only machines to do the gathering.

If you don't have a throat plate with the single hole, you might try some light weight interfacing to give some density to the sheet fabric.


Hope this helps!

Tension Problem on Pfaff 2034, bobbin loops


Rule of thumb.. Loops on the bottom, problem on the top. Loops on the top, problems on the bottom.

Set your upper tension at 4, and rethread the machine from the top. Just before you thread the needle, but the presser foot down. If the thread pulls right thru easily, then the thread is not thru the tension wheel right. Because, if you can't pull the thread thru with the presser foot down, you have it threaded right.

My new ruffling foot keeps jamming my machine


Take the foot off and check for a small burr in the area that pushes the material through. If there is a burr, it will get caught, especially on lace. The burr can be removed with a very fine abrasive stone or the emery srea from a match pack.

Stitches


Usually a walking foot is for straight forward stitching only.It keeps the many layers from shifting for you. The "hand-look" quilting takes a couple stitches forward then one back. If you look close, you will see about every other stitch is thicker and stands out more.
