Question about Janome MC 4400 Computerized Sewing Machine
I am trying to sew 5" squares together for a quilt using the special foot that makes a perfect 1/4" seam. I am using a straight stich (Memo 02) in which the needle is to the far left. Every so often (I never know when) the machine locks up and reads "Machine stopped for safety reasons".
I then have to re-thread the machine. When the machine stops, it jerks the thread out of the take-up lever.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

Your machine has a timing problem and should be seen by a technician to repair it.It is possible that there is a loose part also.

Janome now has a darning foot ie it looks like an embroidery foot with a spring designed for the 1600 models. It is metal with a ring where the needle goes down through it. I removed the plastic lens inside the ring and this seems to have resolved the problem.
I usually pull my threads to the top so I can see where they are and not getting tangled underneath.
There are several good groups on Yahoo groups which offer support for starting out on quilting

High Shank Machines are all the Janome Embroidery models MC 8000, MC 9000, 10000, 10001, 11000, 200E, 300E, 350E....etc
If yours is not an embroidery machine, it has a LOW SHANK .....the higher shank allows for easier access for the embroidery hoop.
