Once I set up my design card and select design, the needle moves

Once I set up my design card and select design the needle moves along the stitches so I loose some stitches before I start to embroider. I wonder what the matter is.

Hi, and welcome to FixYa. If I understand your problem, the needle goes in and out of your fabric, and the embroidery hoop moves, but the machine does not actually start embroidering your design right away....did I get it right? If have time to answer a few questions, I can give more accurate instructions.

  1. How long have you had your machine?
  2. How long have you been doing machine embroidery?
  3. Do you have a manual for your machine?
  4. Look at the back side of your design - do you see lots of bobbin thread, or hardly any?
  5. Have you taken lessons for your machine or for embroidery?
  6. When your design is finished, can you where the machine skipped stitches?
Here a couple of things you can try (if you have already):

  • Make sure you use an embroidery needle, not a universal. In most cases, you should use a size 90. Change your needle after each project. A blunt need can cause your machine to skip embroidery stitches anywhere in the design.
  • Rewind or replace your bobbin. Make sure you use bobbin thread in your bobbin when you embroider - it is thinner and gives you better tension. If pre-wound embroidery bobbins are compatible with your machine, I recommend that you try one and compare the result with designs sewn using the bobbin thread you've been using.
  • Normally, you should loosen your tension a little bit when you embroider. When you look at the back side of your embroidery, you should see more bobbin thread than embroidery thread.
I owned an embroidery business for several years, and I have six different embroidery machines of my own - so with a little more info from you, I think I can help.

    Hi - just wanted to check in to see how you're doing? Is your machine still skipping threads when it starts?

How do I fix my loose bottom tension?


Remove the thread from the machine. ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot and rethread the machine from the beginning. Verify the path is correct. The standard tension setting is the midway point although you will most likely need to tweak this for your particular machine.

If you are still having problems, you may need to readjust the bobbin tension.

Cant embroider on toyota quiltmaster 50


The Quiltmaster 50 can only do free-hand embroidery. Use the darning foot. Set the machine for a satin stitch with a stitch length of 0 and lower the feed dogs. Manually move the hoop to stitch your design. (Trace the design on the fabric and place on a stabilizer if needed. Center the design in an embroidery hoop and move the hoop under the needle. In my limited experience, all fabrics need stabilizers. Some require multiple sheets of stabilizer.)

Personally, I have trouble moving any fabric under the pressure foot. This is mostly a matter of practice. You have to make a lot of scrap piece trials.

This site has the manual for the Quiltmaster 50 (European version): http://www.home-sewing.com/WebRoot/Store/Shops/homesewing/4AAF/95FA/5ED9/1505/56BA/4D44/240A/754B/QUILT50_0020_EFNI_0020__0020_679111-CEA10.pdf . See page 37 (49 of the PDF).

I hope this helps.

(who actually cheats: I either use an embroidery sewing machine or I use a late 1960s Singer Sewing machine with its Monogramming accessory. This has pre-programmed designs on little discs. That's why I don't practice free-hand stitching.)

Needle up down moves the embroider


It's okay - it's supposed to do that! The Needle Down button has a different function when you are in Embroidery mode i.e. you have the emb. unit attached.
It moves the emb. arm forward for two reasons: so you can cut top-side jump stitches more easily between colour changes (you touch the button again and the emb. arm returns to under the needle so you can finish the design); and secondly so you can "park" the embroidery unit when you are finished. You can then turn the machine off, remove the emb. unit and replace it in the carry case. If you DON'T do this, the emb. arm is not in the right position to fit into the moulded carry case properly.

The Broken Thread message usually means that it has started the colour, but the thread has been pulled down underneath instead of making nice locked stitches. Hold onto the thread end until the machine has stopped and beeped for you to cut the thread. This usually solves that problem. Sometimes the thread gets pulled out of your hand so just back up the stitches a few and start over, holding the thread more tightly. Don't tug on the thread - just keep a firm grip.

Designer 1s often cut the bobbin thread too short so that it can't make those nice locked stitches when it starts. You need to take off the hoop, open up the bobbin cover and use your stylus, the tip of a pair of scissors, tweezers (whatever is to hand) to pull the bobbin thread out a little. Instead of cutting it on the bobbin thread cutter, just let it hang outside by 1/8" or so. That way you can be sure there is enough bobbin thread available for the stitch to lock. Don't use the scissors button on the machine after every colour change. Sure, it makes for a tidier back of the embroidery with less work for you afterwards, but if it means you are taking the hoop and bobbin cover off after every colour change then it is not worth it in time-saving.
If your machine is doing this - cutting the bobbin thread too short - mention it to your tech. when you machine goes in for its next service. He may be able to tweak the bobbin cutter so it does not cut so close.

My kenmore 385 won't feed fabric


Check to see what pattern is selected. Be sure it isn't the buttonhole.Select straight stitch.Move the stitch length setting to 4.Turn the handwheel and see if the feed dogs move forward. Press the reverse lever and see if they move backwards. Select straight stretch stitch and turn the wheel to see if the feed dogs move forward and backward.Check the presser foot release on top of the machine and make sure there is pressure on the foot.
Sometimes the reverse assembly on this machine stops working because it has the wrong type of grease on it and it turns into a hard gummy mess that won't let it work.

Pfaff creative half-speed and thread breaks


YIKES - what a nightmare! We can approach your problem two ways, but to determine whether the problem is your machine or your design, I need to know if you have been using one design, or if you've tried to embroidery several different designs and are getting threadbreaks about every 10,000 stitches, no matter what design, needle, thread, and bobbin you use.

Here are some rules you should following whenever you embroider on your machine:

  • Change your needle and insert a newly wound bobbin every time you start a new project
  • Use a size Embroidery Needle - size 90 for most projects
  • Check the backside of your design - you should see alot more bobbin thread than embroidery thread. If you don't see enough bobbin thread, loosen your top tension. If the tension is set automatically, change it manually.
  • Your design might be the problem. Some designs have WAY to many stitches. If you haven't already, choose several different designs with different styles - for example, a monogram, a design that is mostly satin stitches, a design that is mostly straight stitches, and so on. Sew one or all over and over so you determine whether your thread will continue to break about every 10,000 stitches.
I hope this helps. Machine embroidery is so much fun once you've learned and practiced. I hope to hear from you - machine embroidery is not hard to learn, but there is a lot to learn. Thanks.







If you want to get right to work, skip the troubleshooting and answer as many questions as you can or have time for. It is possible that your problem is the design and not the machine. Try one suggestion at time so you what helps and what doesn't. Questions first:

  1. Is the machine brand new, or new to you?
  2. Do you have your manual?
  3. Do you been embroidering by machine for a while, or are you just learning?
  4. Does this problem occur with every design you sew, or is it one particular design that you are having trouble with?
  5. How many total stitches are in the design you are trying ot sew?
  6. What kind of thread are you using (rayon, poly, sewing?)
  7. Did you buy the machine from a dealer, and if so, does it have a warranty?
  8. Have you taken lessons on how to use your machine for both sewing and embroidery?
  9. Are you familiar with embroidery backings, needles, and threads and how to choose which to use for a particular project?

How do you use the Plus Hoop on a Husqvarna Viking "Rose" Sewing Machine?


The plus hoop is a multi positional hoop that allows you you to embroider designs up to 4" x 6". It is essential for monogramming and lettering using your Rose. The Rose hooping system is the same as the 1+, the Scandinavia 300 and 400.

The designs you use must be formatted for the plus hoop. That is, the design has already been divided into two or three elements. Each element is an individual design. For instance, say the design is a long stemmed rose. It would probably be divided something like this: design 1: the flower and the top part of the stem, design 2: The middle part of the stem and the leaves, design 3: the bottom part of the stem.

You would hoop up your fabric to be embroidered, attach the hoop to the machine, set the hoop to position 1, select design 1, stitch out design 1, set the hoop to position 2, select design 2, stitch out design 2, set the hoop to position 3, select design 3, stitch out design 3. You should have a complete design when you're done and everything should match up perfectly!

The hoop is divided up into three squares, 4" x 4". Position 1 square overlaps position 2 square and position 2 square overlaps position 3 square. This overlapping allows the designs to stitch out more smoothly.

I hope this helps. Let me know if you have further questions. Carrie
