You may want to make sure that your feed dogs are not in the lowered position. If they are in the lowered position, you'll want to raise them, and that should allow them to properly feed the material through.

HV sapphire 930 not feeding properly


When stitching together a quilt sandwich, it is recommended to use a walking foot on your machine. The walking foot moves the upper fabric in conjunction with the feed dogs. Sometimes, if the quilt sandwich is not too thick, a roller foot can also help but may not be sufficient for a quilt sandwich.

You may also check the presser foot pressure on your machine. This regulates the amount of pressure the presser foot applies to the fabric and the feed dogs. If the pressure is too strong, it will tend to push the upper layers of fabric, creating a bubble look. If the pressure is too loose, there is not enough pressure for the feed dogs to physically pull entire quilt sandwich under the presser foot.
(The pressure is adjustable depending on the types of fabric and thicknesses being sewn.)

What is a feed dog in memory craft 9500 and how to lower the feed dog


Sewing machines have feed dogs to pull the fabric through the machine. They are usually a pair of metal teeth that are situated in the needleplate and press against the presser foot. They grip the fabric and pull the fabric under the presser foot as the needle stitches.

You can find the drop feed dog instructions in the owner's manual:

Not feeding material.


Tension generally does not affect the feed unless it is way too tight. Most reasons for fabric not advancing under the presser foot is that the feed dogs have been dropped for darning. If the feed dogs are operating properly, as the handwheel turns the feed dogs should rise above the plate, move toward the back of the machine pulling the fabric, drop down, come forward and rise again.

The other possibility is that the presser foot pressure has been released so the presser foot is not holding the fabric down on the feed dogs. Some machines have a spring-loaded knob on the top of the machine, a dial, or something to adjust the amount of pressure the foot applies. Consult your owner's manual.

No knob to adjust presser foot pressure. Space between feed dogs & presser foot is too tight to pull a piece of fabric out with foot down. Diagonal seams get pushed out.


You should not be able to pull fabric from the machine when the presser foot is down. The presser foot should always be raised before removing the fabric.

Are you trying to darn or quilt something without the feed dogs activated? If so, there are special presser feet for that purpose that are shorter in height (ie darning foot) which allow more space between the presser foot and the stitch plate so the fabric can be moved freely.

If you use the darning plate, do you need to have the darning /embroidering pressor foot.


You really do need a foot (just a smidgen shorter than a regular presser foot) that does not contact the feed dogs in order to darn, couch, or free motion stitch. The whole idea is that with this method the feed dogs will not move the fabric, but you also need the foot that allows extra space for you to freely move the fabric manually.

Why does the backing gather up even though it is penned and sprayed with quilting spray


Presser foot tension is to low for the weight/finish of the fabric, or bottom dogs are worn.
  • The feed dog feeds the fabric under the presser foot while you guide the fabric.


  • The feed dog regulates the stitch length by how much fabric passes under the presser foot as the machine stitches.


  • It is important for you to not push and pull the fabric under the presser foot. Allow the feed dog to move the fabric, so that you do not bend and break sewing machine needles.
Hope this helps.

Presser foot will not feed and the thread wont catch


The presser foot is not suppose to feed. It's purpose is to hold the fabric in place as the feed dogs feed the fabric from the front to the back of the machine as stitches are formed.

Check the needle to be sure it is installed with the flat side of the needle shank facing the back of the sewing machine.

Refer to your manual to be sure the bobbin thread is feeding from the bobbin spool in the correct direction and through the guides.

Pull the bobbin thread up by lowering the threaded needed down and then back up. Pull both threads under the presser foot and to the back of the machine.

Set the stitch length to 2.

Place a scrap of fabric under the presser foot. Holding onto the ends of both threads, lower the needle into the fabric for the first stitch.

If the machine still does not stitch, the machine may need to go in for maintenance as the timing may need to be adjusted.

If the feed dogs are not moving, this also needs to be repaired by sewing machine service tech.

Fabric does not move forward


Either the presser foot does not have enough pressure on it or it is not lowering all the way to the fabric.
Remove the fabric.lower the presser foot.If the presser foot has no or little pressure look for the pressure regulator on top the machine or on the left side and see if you can make it tighter. Not all machines have this.Look to see if there is space between the foot and the teeth when you turn the handwheel. If there is space then the machine needs an adjustment.
