Question about Janome Memory Craft 9000 Computerized Sewing Machine
I'm trying to embroider a towel. Using the P foot, but have broken 3 needles in a row! The foot is on tight, and so it the needle - and inserted correctly. I am new at using this machine, but everything's so automated - feed dog position, tension, etc - I can't imagine what might be wrong. Tried switching needle sizes up to a #90 - broke right off at the top (bent, too). They almost get stuck down in the feed dog area when this happens. Have I threaded it wrongly? Help!
Hi there check the race for needle piercing mark if it is pierced you will need a new race this piercing although tiny will cause this problem
always use janomes blue tip needle avalon on top backing paper below.
i am sure youre problem is a damaged race
good luck mary h

I think you may have to use some sort of tear away paper on top of the loops so the needle doesn't get caught, as well as stabiliser underneath. I just checked the manual for my janome and that's what it says for towelling.
