My machine is adding loops under my stitches when I try to stitch a straight stitch, I am trying to machine stitch a quilt top!


Quilting is a bit more finicky than regular sewing. Be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the top thread. FWIW, I use a separate bobbin case for FMQ that I have tightened the tension to keep the bobbin thread from coming to the top of the sandwich, but I tend to use a finer thread for quilting so adjusting the bobbin takes care of it. In your case, however, it sounds like the top thread is staying under the fabric. I would try tightening the top tension. Also, install a brand new needle--a top stitch, embroidery, or microtex needle seem to work well for me. Test well on a sandwich made of the same fabric and batting and get it adjusted well before sewing on your quilt. Sometimes sewing speed will affect stitches under the fabric, or even on top.

When quilting more than 2 fabrics, the feed dogs won't push the thicker fabric through. What else can I do?


So you are quilting but not free motion quilting... Generally, a walking foot is used when just doing straight stitch quilting. It has feet that actually walk at the same time the feed dogs are pulling.

How do you set up a brother XL-5700 for free motion quilting


Be sure to have a darning foot or free motion quilting foot (this presser foot is shorter in height so when you lower it, it will not press the fabric to the feed dogs). The foot must allow space under it so the fabric can be manually moved.

The last step is to lower the feed dogs so they are not interfering with your manual manipulation of the fabric.

Lots of web sites about free motion quilting.

I want to free hand machine quilt - but it won't work when I drop the foot


You need an embroidery foot, that doesn't lay on the fabric like a normal foot and allows free motion of the fabric. If you are using one, be sure it is the appropriate foot for your machine and that you have pushed the appropriate button or place on your machine so that the machine will place the foot in the correct position.

You need to drop the feed dogs, install a darning or free motion quilting foot (make sure the presser foot is lowered). Because you will not be using the machine to move the fabric, the stitch length selection is of no importance. Make sure the stitch width is set to zero. You should test FMQ on a scrap quilt sandwich of the same makeup of your project, ie quilt fabric with batting sandwiched between. The upper tension should be set so that both threads meet in the middle of the quilt sandwich. Because it is FMQ, some extra adjustment may be needed.

Once the tension is where you want it, you can practice FMQ until you can move it smoothly in conjunction with the machine speed.

Practicing on a white board with erasable markers is a handy way to learn to move smoothly. The most difficult part of free motion quilting is learning to move the fabric smoothly. Do NOT lack for practice as that is the only way to improve. Those people who make it look simple have been doing it for years!

HV sapphire 930 not feeding properly


When stitching together a quilt sandwich, it is recommended to use a walking foot on your machine. The walking foot moves the upper fabric in conjunction with the feed dogs. Sometimes, if the quilt sandwich is not too thick, a roller foot can also help but may not be sufficient for a quilt sandwich.

You may also check the presser foot pressure on your machine. This regulates the amount of pressure the presser foot applies to the fabric and the feed dogs. If the pressure is too strong, it will tend to push the upper layers of fabric, creating a bubble look. If the pressure is too loose, there is not enough pressure for the feed dogs to physically pull entire quilt sandwich under the presser foot.
(The pressure is adjustable depending on the types of fabric and thicknesses being sewn.)

I have some spots of superglue on a lovely shirt, is there a substance which will remove it?


Probably not without damaging the fabric because these glues are so hard. 2 products I would try if you can get them where you are:
1. tea tree oil
2. Eucalyptus oil.

These will react with normal glues and break them down without harming the fabric or taking out any colour. I have not tried either of them with any of the super glues so I cannot say if it will be successful with such super tough products. I would also test them on another piece of similar fabric spotted with the glue before using them and that will tell you if they will work on the SG.

Other than that you would need to try various strong solvents to see if they would break down the glue and enable you to remove it. The problem is you may end up with a stain, loss of colour or some damage to the fabric if it is a sensitive fabric. If you test some of these on an old piece of similar fabric you have spotted with the glue you will be able to see which one worked without harming the fabric.

If you can buy a bottle of dry cleaning fluid (I cannot remember the technical name) you may be able to move it using a liberal amount of that product or just soaking the areas with the spots in the fluid. Be careful handling it as it is pretty toxic.

Applying steam (from a boiling kettle ) to areas of the fabric affected may soften the glue a little and enable you to roll it off the fabric if it is not heavily impregnated. Whilst this can work with some of the softer glues it may not with the SG. I would also test it first on another piece of fabric
