Do feed dogs were out


They will wear over time, especially if they are allowed to stitch with full contact to the base of the presser foot (in absence of fabric). (I have an older machine picked up at the thrift store that has permanent gouging to the base of the presser foot because the machine was run without fabric between it and the feed dogs.) Feed dogs also can become clogged with debris--dirt, lint, oil, etc. In addition, feed dogs may need to be adjusted in height if they don't rise above the needle plate to contact the presser foot--this should be done by a professional. Something else to check is if your machine has a presser foot pressure adjustment feature. Most new machines have this function. Older machines also may have it internally although the manufacturers weren't very good about letting users know since they didn't want users making mechanical adjustments to their machines. On some older machines, it is a vertical projection on the top left of the machine that is spring loaded. Pressing it down will gradually increase the pressure on the presser foot. HOWEVER, when using this adjustment, it should be released completely (press down on the outer ring of the projection) when finished sewing or when not used regularly as the spring collapses over time and will no longer work efficiently. Same thing with the presser foot lever--the presser foot should be stored in the lowered position with a soft cloth (scrap fabric) between it and the feed dogs. I've seen a lot of older machines at the thrift store with the presser foot in the "up" position. This is a no-no if you want to keep your machine at its best working condition.

What Pressure Adjustment on Sewing Machine

It seems the problem is the excess pressure of the foot when down.. it must somehow be related to thread tension.. can I change foot pressure?


Depends on the make/model of your machine. Most machines do have a pressure adjustment for the presser foot. Sometimes it is explained in the owner's manual.

Newer machines have a dial somewhere. Older machines will have a screw at the very top of the presser foot bar (sometimes under the top cover). Turning the screw right will increase the pressure, left will release it. Other machines have a plunger type projection on the top left of the machine. Pushing the plunger down will increase the presser foot pressure. To release the plunger, press down on the ring that encircles the plunger.

I need instuctions on using different presser foot for ja nome schoolmate


Please add a comment with the specific model of Janome Schoolmate sewing machine.

Fpr the Janome Schoolmate S-3015, make sure that the needle is fully up and raise the presser foot. Then press the red button on the back of the presser foot holder to have that foot drop off. Set the pressure dial to 3 before attaching the new presser foot. For snap-on feet, align the pin of the presser foot (the horizontal bar in the middle of the foot) under the presser foot holder. Lower the presser foot holder (using the presser foot height lever) until it locks onto the foot.

For the zipper foot, you need to fit the rear pin on the foot into groove at the back of the presser foot holder. Then lower the presser foot holder onto the zipper foot.

These are shown on page 11 (14 of the PDF) of the manual. You can download the manual here: http://janome.com/en/machines/sewing/schoolmate-s-3015/ . The direct link to the manual is http://janome.com/siteassets/support/manuals/school-models/schoolmate3015.pdf .

For the S-7330, you need to again raise the needle and the presser foot. Press the lever towards (it moves slightly up, not down) the presser foot holder. Then line up the pin on the foot under the presser foot holder and lower the presser foot holder onto the foot so that it locks. This is also in that sewing machine's manual, here: http://janome.com/siteassets/support/manuals/school-models/inst-book-s-7330esf.pdf . See page 14 (18 of the PDF).

I hope this helps.

The presser foot doesn't sit all the way down in order to sew correctly. Can I adjust it myself? How?


Has that particular presser foot worked in the past? Do the other presser feet work?

If it hasn't been used before, check that it is the correct foot for the machine. Is it perhaps a darning foot or free motion foot? If so, those particular feet are made to Not rest on the feed dogs so that the fabric can be manually moved without the use of the feed dogs.

If none of the presser feet work with the machine, then the needlebar has probably shifted. It may be best to take it for service as it may require specific tools and gauges to adjust it properly.

Can I do freehand embroidery using this machine?


Most any sewing machine (zig-zag capable is probably better but a straight stitch can be used) should be able to do manual embroidery/applique. The lady in the video states she's using an embroidery foot, but in reality a darning or free motion presser foot may be better. Most embroidery presser feet actually press down on the fabric making it difficult to move the fabric manually. A darning or free motion presser foot is actually shorter and allows space for the fabric to move freely.

Don't forget to lower the feed dogs!!!

Lots of web sites and videos on the internet!

I have problems with not be able to pick up the thread from the bobbin to start sewing


Make sure the needle is not bent and is installed with the flat side of the needle shaft to the back of the machine.

Thread the machine with the presser foot up, with the thread going into the needle from the front ,

Check the manual to be sure you have the bobbin inserted correctly into the bobbin case and the thread is feeding in the proper direction and through the guides on the bobbin case.

Hold onto the end of the top thread at the needle and hand walk the needle down and back up. This should bring the bobbin thread up. Take both thread ends under the presser foot and to the back of the machine.

Place a folded scrap of fabric under the presser foot, lower the presser foot and hand walk the needle down into the fabric and then use the power pedal to start sewing.

You may not be using the correct presser foot for your machine.

You may be using a low shank when your machine needs a high shank.
