Question about Janome MC 4400 Computerized Sewing Machine
How do I adjust the tension on my janome mc 4400? Trying to zig zag satin stitch through a thick material (applique on a towel) using tear away stabilizer, but top stitches will not catch. If I test on a regular piece of cotton, the zig zag works, but on my thicker material, stiches are not sewn. help!
Before you go changing settings... make sure you are stabilizing the fabric correctly. Towels especially requires a stabilizer on top AND on bottom.

It depends on a couple of things. Depending on the fabric you're using you might want to use a stabilizer like an iron on tear away. If the stitches are bunching the stitch length might be to tight. Try going to 0.3. if the stabilizer doesn't work. With the stabilizer on, it will keep the fabric firmer so it won't pucker. Make sure you have the decorative stitching foot on the machine with the little indentation for the satin stitch to ride in. If you have the wrong foot on, this will cause bunching too. Let me know if this helps.
