Hi' I'm Peter, I really don't think the length of your stiches is the problem. I was having a similar problem and one of the ladies at Hancock Fabrics told me just to adjust the tension on the thread and WOW something so simple made a world of a difference so give it a try you may have the tension set a little too loose like I did. Hope it helps let me know.

try rethreading the machine top & bobbin make sure to get ever thread guide
try chaning to needle, make sure the needle goes all the way into the needle holder-normally flat side goes to the back of the machine
check to make the thread is moving smoothly around the tension dial
if these suggestion don't help, then the machine probably could use a servicing

SOURCE: Janome Memory Craft 8900 QCP. Upper tread jamming in the bobbin area and around. Needle jumps randomly on one side. Was sowing quite thick material with straight stitch and it was fine. Then I decided

Did it break the needle when you changed stitches? Or did it just go straight to jamming.

Adjust the size of the stitch


Most machines have a little lever that you slide up and down or left to right with numbers on it. The larger the number, the larger the stitch. Just move the dial or lever to a smaller number.

There doesn't seem to be a stitch long enough on machine for basteing so I can gather material?


Try loosening both top and bottom tension. while longer stitches are easier, it can be done on shorter stitches as well. A bennifit to shorter stitches is the gathers will be smaller and easier to work with! Remember to reset the bobbin tension before sewing again.

Sewing a topstitch


Top stitching is usually done with straight stitch, ie stitch width on zero and stitch length on 2.5 but it depends on the application and the effect you are trying to get. Normal top stitch is where you might be stitching a facing down on the outside of a neckline, so you might want to stitch about 5mm away from the edge of the fabric. Always stitch from the outside of the garment, the finished side so you can turn on corners and control the fabric. If you have a clear pressure foot, then this will make watching the stitching easier. Not sure what your problem is with this technique so feel free to add more in comments if I've missed something.

I have purchased a gathering foot. What do I have to have my machine on (stitch length etc.) to get good results? Thanks. Kath


You need to use a straight stitch set to about 6mm. You may also have to loosen the tension discs to mid range.

My Memory Craft sews great until I start to quilt or use one of the different stitches and then the stitches either skip or become so tiney I can't pick them out.


Skipping could indicate you need to use a larger size needle.

Tiny stitches could be save reason, or the top thread is hanging up.

Sometimes the thread can wrap around the spool pin or catch on a rough surface on the end of the spool.

Be sure to use the correct size spool cap and if the thread is wrapping around the pin, a thread net can help.

Give the machine a cleaning according to the maintenance section of the manual for your machine, including cleaning the feed dogs, bobbin case, shuttle and surrounding area.

Make sure the feed dogs are up unless you are free motion quilting and the presser foot down.

This may seem elementary.........just trying to cover all the bases.
