Hi Susan,

You're absolutely correct, you'll need to either drop the feed dogs (lever generally located near the bobbin case or on the outside base of machine) or cover the feed dogs with a plate (many machines have this included).

Then... you'll need to lower the presser foot - when you lower it, it should NOT touch the bed of the machine but sit slightly raised off the fabric surface. As you stitch the presser foot will lower onto the fabric to hold it taught as the needle penetrates.

Oddly enough it's easier to achieve smooth stitches when sewing at a faster speed, but begin by stitching fairly slowly until you get a feel for free-motion stitching. You'll be doing all the guiding and it may feel a bit strange and uncontrolled at first.

Position yourself at your machine so that when your hands on your fabric/bed of machine, your shoulders are relaxed (not all hunched up) and your elbows are slightly higher than the bed of the machine.

You'll want to stitch in a side-to-side or back and forth motion (as opposed to trying to turn the fabric.

Best of luck with this technique. Once you're comfortable with it, you're sure to enjoy the freedom of creating!

Happy sewing,
Kim & Linnette

I need more info.
>Where is your presser fooot pressure set(1-9) it should be around 4?
>How fast are you free motioning (faster is better? from 1-10 10 being full speed.
>Is your bobbin threaded correctly (I need to cover the basics.)?
>Never never use a needle smaller than a 90/14 for free motion (I know everyone's an expert...but trust me)
After all this, it's OK to tighten your tension up on top a little when free motioning and getting eyelashes/spider webs on bottom. around 6 should do it though.

Is this a Janome MemoryCraft 9000? (I ask because the models seem to get mixed up in the threads)

If so, you can more than likely find accessories for the MC9000 either on eBay, your local Janome dealer (you can find the closest one to you @ Janome's website using the "Dealer Locator" feature) or even ... SEARS!

Sears contracted Janome to make several of their sewing machines (I think Janome might still be the actual manufacturer, but aren't 100% sure) and so the parts are compatible. You can even use a Kenmore Memory Card with a Janome MC9000.

As for oiling, if it's the MC9000 (much like practically all newer models) they don't need oiling. Though sometimes, you can dab a teeny-tiny amount of oil on the bobbin case if it needs it.

Can the presser foot be raised slightly on pfaff tiptronic 2030 to facilitate free motion quilting? There is not enough clearance with feed dogs down to freely move material to quilt. Thank you.


You need a special foot for free motion quilting--it is slightly shorter in height than a regular presser foot, which essentially provides space between the presser foot and the needle plate to manually move the fabric. Sometimes machines came with a standard darning foot accessory. Your Pfaff dealer probably has at least one style in stock. But there are other specialty feet you can probably use, ie Big Foot, clear free motion foot, C-shaped, oval, etc. You can also purchase a shank adapter (verify it is the correct shank for your machine) and use it with a kit of snap-on presser feet so you can have a variety of presser feet for different functions.

How do I avoid breaking a needle on a 26 foot beginning a free motion project after programing the foot choice and lowering the foot?


#26 is an embroidery foot. Why are you using an embroidery foot for free motion quilting? A #24 free motion embroidery foot will work but not the #26. Try using a darning foot that is just a smidgen shorter so there is space between it and the needleplate for you to freely move the fabric. (Adding a Supreme Slider sheet to the work surface of your machine helps make the fabric glide much smoother.) A standard presser foot is made to press the fabric against the feed dogs so the feed dogs will move the fabric. When free motion quilting, you would drop the feed dogs and move the material with your hands.

Depends which model Bernina you have (new or old style presser feet), which will work on your machine. There are also many generic darning/FMQ feet available that will work on your machine.

I dropped the feed dogs on my Necchi 535FA to free motion quilt, but the material won't move. What else do I need to do?


MAKE SURE THE DOGS HAVE BEEN DROPPED. YOU NEED TO ALSO HAVE A PRESSURE FOOT THAT IS ROUND; ABOUT A DIME SIZE. ADJUST THE PRESSURE ON THE FOOT. IF YOU'RE WAITING FOR THE MACHINE TO MOVE THE MATERIAL IT ISN'T GOING TO HAPPEN. THAT IS WHERE YOU COME IN. MOVE IT WHERE YOU WANT IT. I HOPE THIS IS HELPFUL.

How to free motion sew on Necchi 3537


Use the darning foot or the free motion foot, drop or cover your feed dogs and set your width and length to zero. Then test the tension. With these changes, sometimes the tension is off.

How to set 2140 for free motion sewing


Which model are you using? Creative 4.5?, On the newer machines it drops automatically once the embroidery attachment is hooked up. On older Creatives v2.x there is a slide lever in front of the presser foot on the front.

I'm looking for a darning foot to use on my Quantum CXL so I can do free motion quilting. Is there one available?


You will have to remove the adapter for the clip on presser feet to use the darning foot - http://www.sewingmachinesplus.com/pd60-4021.php same as you would to use the walking foot.

How do I set the tension on my Necchi 3101? I want to freehand motion quilt on it.


The tension is not changed.

You lower the feed dogs, or change the stitch length to zero and cover the feed dogs by taping an index card (make a hole for the needle) over them.

Be sure to use a darning or free motion foot and have the presser foot down when stitching.

I hav e Bernina 1150. When I attach the walking


Hi, when you quilt straight lines using the walking foot, you need the feed dogs up, to move the fabric in a straight direction under the needle. When you do free motion quilting, which is done with a darning foot, your hands move the fabric in many different directions. Since you want to be the one to move the fabric, you put the feed dogs down and you do the work. So when you use the walking foot, keep your feed dogs up. When you use the darning foot, feed dogs down.
