I haven't sewn on this model in about 10 years, so I am rusty. I don't recall a slide or switch to set the range of stitch speeds, so one of the things you need to do is learn to feather the pedal instead of just stomping it. You can often figure out how to block the pedal travel with a couple thicknesses of cardboard cut to shape, or a piece of pencil eraser to mechanically block the highest pedal pressure, but usually it's just better to learn to control the pedal. Finally, the best free motion quilting is often done with high speed stitching but moderately slow fabric movement.

SOURCE: Can't free motion quilt on Juki-T98QE

You need to be using a free motion foot or a darning foot, the regular presser foot is not for free motion.

SOURCE: I am having problems with

It is a timing issue. I have a TL98E. The needle bends a bit when free motion quilting, moving the needle away from the hook, thus missing the thread. Try to put in a larger needle, or have the timing changed so that the hook "kisses" the size needle that you want to use. Tammy

Properly balanced tensions are critical. The lower bobbin tension must be tight enough to pull the knots down. To which number is your upper tension set? It should be around three. Skipping stitches is an indicator of hook timing and hook/needle clearance issues.

SOURCE: needle thread breaks while quilting on machine frame

I posted question about top thread breaking when quilting (using walking foot). Finally solved my problem, my solution may help others. Decrease the presser foot tension to nearly 0. Had tried different threads, tension settings, needles. Nothing worked until I adjusted the presser foot tension. Quilting went like a dream, even through seams ect, also worked for attaching binding.

How do I set the Husqvarna 300 sewing machine to do free motion embroidery. Do I need the embroidery attachment and get the machine to embroider with or with out the card


You can do embroidery or you can do free motion. If you're quilting a quilt sandwich (fabric, batting, backing fabric), you probably want to do free motion quilting. Embroidery would work better on fabric (with a stabilizer) but without the batting and backing fabric.

For free motion, you want a free motion foot--your machine's manufacturer probably provided one in the accessory kit (called a darning foot) or there are many generic free motion feet available for purchase (ie Big Foot quilting foot...). The BIG difference with a darning foot or free motion foot is that the shank is shorter than other presser feet because there needs to extra space between the presser foot and the needle plate so the quilter can easily manipulate the fabric. Usually, free motion quilters will drop the feed dogs to avoid feed dog interference with the fabric's movement, however, some quilters don't drop the feed dogs--just whatever works best for you and your machine. In addition, I use a Supreme Slider on the sewing machine surface--a silicone mat that provides a slick surface to help the fabric move.

There are a lot of web sites and video tutorials on free motion quilting. Take some time to watch them and then practice, practice, practice! It's an acquired skill so the more you practice, the better you will be.

How to Free motion quilting on Janome 1600P QC


Be sure to use a darning foot (or free motion quilting foot).
Use a brand new sharp needle, ie top stitch, embroidery, or microtex work well.
Check that the thread, needle, and fabric are compatible--Caution, the needle eye should be the right size for the thread weight.
AVOID old or bargain bin thread!
Be sure to drop or cover the feed dogs.
If your machine has it, use the needle down feature.
You may need to adjust the tension for FMQ--I have to tighten the bobbin tension a little to keep the bobbin thread below the quilt surface (so I bought a special bobbin case and set the tension for FMQ and that's all I use it for.)

Lots of web sites that talk about how to free motion quilt. Then, it's PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE! I use a portable white board and draw free motion designs on it (while watching TV, etc.). The idea is to get it fluid without jerking, jumping, speeding up or slowing down, etc. When your hand and brain are able to work smoothly, then you can probably do free motion quilting. Practice on scraps of fabric and batting (preferably the same kind you will be working on). Cut up some 14 inch squares of fabric and batting and draw designs on them and see if you can stitch them. Some advice: don't watch the needle...look at where you are going in front of the needle. Don't expect perfection to happen overnight. Many quilters have been FMQing for years and still make mistakes. (I've made a few quilts and my stuff still looks less than professional, but it's all mine!)

The variable speed comes from the foot controller.

Is there a simple way to slow the speed down on a Juki DDL-8700??? My friend wants to sew, but it is way too fast for her .........any help would be appreciated.


On the motor where the clutch is you will see thge large pin with a nut on it, as you press on the pedal the pin engages with the motor, if you loosen the nut and unscrew the pin bit by bit and try the machine you will get to a point where you will have absolute control on the speed.

Needle thread breaks while quilting on machine frame


My friend and I both have the Juki 98Q but on different frames - we were both having problems (needles breaking, thread getting tangled) we removed the thin metal thing inside the bobbin case and have had no problems since (over a year now!).
