Yesterday, while machine quilting, I heard a clank. Now the feed dogs won't feed the fabric. The feed dogs seem to move back when I start sewing; it seems as if they stayed forward before...


Did you check to make sure the feed dogs weren't inadvertently dropped. Most sewists drop the feed dogs for free motion quilting or darning.

How do I drop the feed dogs for quilting on my Brother XL 4011 sewing machine


It should be included in the owner's manual. (An internet search did not turn up a manual for your machine, but a model close to your machine may operate very similarly.) You can also contact Brother Support.

This may help:

The other possibility is that the feed dogs on your model do not actually drop. There may be an accessory (darning plate) in your kit that covers the feed dogs during darning or free motion quilting. (Shown on page 38 of the following manual):

How do I lower the feed dog on the singer stylist 776 so that I can do free motion quilting


If there is no lever to drop the feed dogs you need a darning plate. It goes on top of the needle plate. Also called a 'feed dog cover'.

I purchase a free motion feet but it says to do so you have to lower the feed dog does the 7422 have a button to lower the feed dog and where it is located because i could not find onew can i do free...


You don't actually have to lower your feed dogs, lots of people FMQ without lowering, or you can tap a small piece of heavy paper (like an index card) over your dogs and poke a hole in the paper for your needle to go through which effectively takes the feed dogs out of commission too.

I need to drop my feed dogs on my 7258 singer and they don't drop


I believe there is a plate that will cover the feed dogs. It is grey in color and in your attachment box.

Why when i put the feed cover on i cant move the fabrice at all there is no room between the foot and the cover. i am trying to quilt together my quilts. thank you brenda g


I'm assuming your machine has a little plate you put over the feed dogs rather than a knob which disengages the feed dogs from moving to do free motion embroidery or something.

If this is the case there probably isn't enough room for your quilt sandwich under the foot.

You could try using a free motion embroidery foot rather than the regular foot with the feed dogs up and see if that allows you sufficient movement.

It would look like this:

It may take some practice still to get a smooth stipple if that is the effect you are going for.

You may find some other ideas on quilting websites to get around this problem or in a Yahoo group for quilters. I've only ever quilted in straight stitch using my walking foot so it feeds the quilt smoothly for me, never tried FMQ.

Is it possible to lower the feed dogs (for machine quilting) on a Singer model 5932 machine?


No, your model has a feed cover to go over the feed dogs for free motion embroidery.

Manual is here http://www.singerco.com/uploads/download/444_5_8_10_16_22_dial.pdf

It is covered on page 21

I own the singer advance 7442 and want to lower the feed dogs in order to use a quilting foot to machine quilt.However I don't have my manual and I need to know how to lower my feed dogs.Can you help me...


The 7442 does not have feed dogs which can be dropped. You need to use the "Darning Plate" which came with the accessories.

Frame quilting with janome 1600 db


am I right that the feed dogs do not drop on this machine?

Yes, this is correct....but you have to change the needle plate to a thicker one, so the feed dogs will be below the needle plate.
