Question about Brother PE770 Computerized Sewing Machine

1 Answer

Needle is stalled

I was in the middle of doing an applique and the needle just started stalling and the auto safety warning came on. I have turned it off and also hit the needle positioning button to try to un jam it but nothing is working. What happened was the thread was caught and it jammed.

SOURCE: Brother 2003D jammed

i am not familiar with the brother safety device myself. however things i would check might be to first check the manual for the machine. if not available try to turn the machine off if it is electronic in hope that it would reset itself. i would also totally unthread the machine and change the needle. embroidery machines need to have needles changed more often due to their high speeds.What type of fabric were you sewing on? Some of the newer machines are just not made to sew on very heavy fabrics and this might be causing something in side to spring. Try to stitch on a lighter fabric with a stabilizer under it

SOURCE: balance wheel is totally jammed

machine was working fine when suddenly it just jammed up. Everything seems to be fine, but the balance wheel is completely jammed rigid. I've looked at the shuttle and there are no thread jams at all. The needle moves fine from side to side with different stitch selections, but wont go up and down with the wheel.
I have tried looking in the machine, but I can't find any thread jammed.

How to applique with my Quilters Dream sewing machine


You should practice on scrap fabric until you can get the technique down well. There are different kinds of applique.


To cover raw fabric edges, you can do a smooth line of zig-zag over the fabric edge. Set the stitch width to a wide stitch and shorten the stitch length until the thread lays nicely next to each other with no gaps of fabric showing but also not so close that the stitches are on top of each other. There are methods for turning corners or curves that are nice for making a great looking edge.

Some tutorials may be helpful.

How can I use my Bernina 640 Artista to applique


Perhaps I'm not understanding your question. When doing applique, I use a very tight zigzag stitch with a satin stitch foot or open-toe embroidery foot (so the thickness of the stitches do not create buildup under the presser foot). Set the tension so the bobbin thread stays mostly under the fabric so the top thread is the only thread that shows on the top (sometimes threading the bobbin pigtail will help).

Fuse the cutout fabric to the backing fabric. Then zigzag so the raw edge of the fabric is covered by the zigzag (helps to use a thicker thread so the coverage is easier).

Some newer machines have the ability to miter corners. On my 930, I set the needle position to the outside of the raw edged. Then when I near the corner, I gently, but consistently, narrow the stitch width to an an outside point, since the needle on the outside edge, turn the fabric and gently, but consistently, widen the stitch to full width. This creates a nice mitered corner.

When making curves, stitch small lengths and then sink the needle on the outside of the curve, and gently turn the fabric to follow the curve and repeat while going around the curve.

Can this to freehand machine embroidery?


If you can drop the feed dogs (or have a plate to cover the feed dogs), the machine has a zig-zag stitch, and you have a darning foot or free motion foot, you can do free motion quilting, hand manipulated embroidery (monograms), and applique on a basic sewing machine. It will take some testing and quite a bit of practice. You can also use an embroidery foot to monogram and applique. You will want to sink the needle into the fabric at every corner and frequently when creating curves so you can move the fabric.

Search the internet for instructions & tutorials on how to set up your machine and the best way to accomplish what you want.

How do I change the stitch width when using applique patterns?


The stitch width should adjust up to at least 1/4" wide. When doing applique, set the machine so the needle is centered on the raw edge of the fabric. If your machine is not stitching wide enough to cover the raw edge, then perhaps something is amiss with the machine. May need to take it for service.

I am having trouble with applique on a memory craft janome 4800.


Upper thread breaks
needle may be in backwards
Raise the needle bar to the highest point, then loosen the clamp screw to remove the old needle, place the new needle in the clamp with the flat side to the back of the machine
Push the needle all the way up to the stop or as far as it will go, then tighten the needle clamp screw
upper tension may be to tight
the needle may be bent or damaged
thread may be hanging up in bobbin case--check area for loose threads or lint
check for burrs on the needle plate & on the bobbin case
