SOURCE: how to put on presser foot "p" to embroider

Not shure you can embroider on an MC4000, i think this is only a sewingmachine.

But to change presser fot:

If it a "snap on" foot, when foot lifted, press the "button" on the back of the needle bar (on the bottom) this would release the presser foot.

If is a large foot, you have to unscrew the screw on the left side of the needlebar, and change the whole foot.

SOURCE: The top spool of thread jams tight when I pull the

It sounds like the tension setting is too tight. The tension mechanism consists of two metal disks; the thread runs between these disks. When the pressure foot is down, the disks come together, trapping the thread between them. When the pressure foot is up, the disks separate and the thread can flow freely. (BTW, this is why you adjust the tension with the pressure foot down.)

Take a look at your tension setting and try loosening it. That should resolve the problem.

Let me know if this helps, ok?

SOURCE: can i raise height of presser foot

Not unless the model you are using has more than one height adjustment. This would be addressed in the instruction manual for the machine.

If you raise the heigth of the presser foot too much, the tension control will open and the thread will not form a proper stitch - you will get a loopy stitch that will not hold.

Intersecting seams where you may have 8 layers of fabric can be flatten somewhat with a nylon hammer, or lay a cloth over the seam and use a regular hammer.

I use this when hemming jeans - the flat-feld seams are super thick when turned under for hemming.

Use a longer stitch length when sewing thick fabrics.

Make a sample, replicating what you will be sewing to test techniques and adjustments to the machine before sewing your project.

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.

How to guide thread on kenmore 158.13201


Most machines are very, very similar, therefore, no matter what brand you own, there's basically the same steps to follow: 1. Place good quality thread on spool pin, back right-hand side of machine and raise presser foot UP. 2.Pull thread taut from spool.Make sure silver take-up lever raised to highest position. 3. Guide thread under first tension disc. 4. Hold thread taut, guiding thread into next tension disc. When you get to the take-up leaver (silver lever on right side of machine that has a hole at the top--hold thread taut guiding it from right to left through hole, bring thread down left side of it, and put thread into tension bracket, hold thread taut! Put thread in back of needle into another small bracket and pull thread towards you. Time to thread needle: put thread front to back into eye of needle. Put thread under presser foot and pull under the center of it a good 6".Lower presser foot on scrap of fabric to test. Turn hand wheel toward you to lower needle into fabric scrap. Use foot (or knee depending on machine) to start machine. Do not pull or push fabric but gently guide it. Jimmy Place fabric scrap under needle. Low

Hi. Here's how to attached the zipper foot.

To Attach the Zipper Foot
1. Loosen the large screw at the left of the presser bar and remove presser foot (You do not need to remove the screw).
2. Hook the prongs of the Zipper Foot around the presser bar from the back, and tighten the presser-bar screw.
3. If the raised edge (zipper or cording) is to the right of the needle, adjust the Zipper Foot by loosening the thumb screw at the back of the foot and sliding foot to the left of the needle. If the raised edge is to the left, slide foot to right.
4. With presser foot down, check its position by lowering needle into side notch, making sure it just clears the foot.
5. Tighten thumb screw to lock foot into position.
When raised edge is placed to right -- adjust foot to left of needle.
When raised edge is placed to left -- adjust foot to right of needle.

I can't get the tension on my sewing machine adjusted correctly. Right now the upper tension is turned as high as it will go and I've loosened the lower tension but I still have the upper thread looped...


It is possible that you threaded the machine with the presser foot down.

This creates loopy stitching because the thead never entered the tension control. Foot down = closed tension.

Put the settings back to their normal settings.

Raise the presser foot and re thread the machine.

When I attach the embroidery arm and turn on the machine I get an error to raise the presser foot lever even when it's already raised and it won't work at all. Works just fine without the embroidery arm...


My moms does the same. One way we got around it was to hold the presser foot all the way up and click the ok button on the screen. The other thing we did would be to hold the presser foot up all the way while turning the machine on while the embroidery unit was already attached. When I say raise the presser foot all the way up, I am talking about raising it up as if you were placing something really large under the foot, not just in the resting up position. Hope this helps - it is very frustrating! My sister has the same exact machine purchased at the same time as my moms, but she doesn't have this problem.

How do I install my darning foot?


First, raise the presser bar, remove the presser foot, the presser foot holder and screw.

Turn the handwheel to bring the needle to its highest position.

Place the darning foot on the presser bar and make sure that the metal bar of the darning foot is above the needle clamp and put the screw back on and tighten.

As the needle bar raises and lowers, the foot will hop up and down slightly.

Make sure that you always lower the presser bar when using this foot. Lower the feed dogs also if your machine has this feature.
