Question about Kenmore Drop-In Bobbin 505S-21BH Mechanical Sewing Machine

1 Answer

Machine quilting got a new kenmore (not computerized) for christmas last year and I'm now trying to machine quilt with it. there are no instructions and the embroidery attachment that I had for my old machine will not fit. I've tried dropping the feed dogs (no movement at all and the thread gets chewed up completely). Raised feed dogs and removed presser foot, nope, I want to be able to stipple which means my fabric needs to be able to move freely in all directions and it's definitely not doing that. ???

To stipple ,remove the ankle and foot, lower the feed dogs and, most importantly, lower the presser foot lever.
You can also buy a LOW SHANK darning foot which will help prevent skipped stitches. It must be screwed onto the machine instead of snapping on.

On my machine I find that my bottom and top free motion stitches are more uniform when I set my needle thread tension at 8 or 9. Also, you might want to use a top stitch needle.
