SOURCE: IDT foot bunching up fabric

Hi Gramma Rosie,

The bunching up of fabric is due to either:

1. Obstruction in front where the fabric has to move forward (in which case you should tug a bit on the front end of the fabric as it goes ahead.)

2. The pressure foot (that pinches the fabric between the advancer teeth and itself), is either too loose or too tight. (It depends on how thick is the fabric and how many layers of fabric are you trying to pas between the IDT foot and advancer teeth) For that you need to tighten or loosen the rotary bolt on top. Its generally connected to the foot like a shock absorber having a high tension spring.

3. The fabric advancer teeth are not moving sufficiently. This you need to rectify by adjusting the up-down lever at the right that is rsponsible for fast & slow advancing of the cloth & accordingly the stitches will be longer or shorter.

I don't think it should be too much of a task for you to solve.

Good luck Rosie.

SOURCE: where to buy another creative blank pfaff 7570 card

I purchased a new Pfaff embroidery machine in 4/2000. A creative blank card came with the machine.The card worked fine. I purchased another blank card- Centennial PCMCIA SRAM Recharge card (bought on internet-site ? can not remember) to use when I started another project before I finished what was on the Pfaff creative card. About 2 years ago the cards( Pfaff & Centennial) couldn't hold a design over night.I tried to recharge the cards-not successful.. Now in April of this year the cards couldn't accept a design at all. In trying to transfer a design from my computer to the embroidery machine-a symbol appeared-- Computer-line connecting with- the sewing machine but no design transferred. A friend's husband suggested I bought a new creative card ($69.00) & am waiting for it to arrive. The cards that you buy with designs already on them -the machine can read and I can sew them out. No luck though with the blank cards. Denise

I have a Pfaff creative sensation and is using the hoop 350x360 and wants to applique a tablemat. Size of the design is 348x247. Error message Colour block placed on both hoop sides not allowed

Probably because the design is too close to the hoop size. There needs to be some space around the edge to allow for the presser foot without hitting the hoop.

Are pfaff 1475cd sewing feet compatible with pfaff 1151 machine

Hi. Some Pfaff machines have something called an "IDT" which looks rather like a small, black walking foot behind the pressure foot, to help feed the fabric evenly. Pfaff machines with this IDT need "IDT" pressure feet. (I can't find a listing of which machines have this and which don't, so you'll have to look at your machines or check your manuals.) If both machines have the IDT, then the feet are compatible. If neither has the IDT, then the feet are also compatible.

Hope this helps!

Happy Sewing,
