The continuous binding pattern


Not sure what you are asking. Do you want to know how to cut your own binding? It is easiest to use a ruler and rotary cutter. Most often, the binding is cut on the bias. Bias binding wears better and has more flexibility when sewing it on.

There are some very handy methods to cut bias binding.

When sewing, mechanism sometimes binds. Bigger problem is when finished stitching, the hand wheel binds completely. Is there a mechanical problem or someplace to insert oil?


Hello Griff

Very likely the thread is kind of bound up in the bobbin area. Just turn the hand wheel a bit forward and backward several times -after you lift the foot. Apply a gentle pull on the fabric and it should "break" loose. Often teh thread is still stretched around teh bobbin and this releases it.
Feel free to reply to this post if this does not do it.

Mega quilter binds thread under fabric


If you have to manually set the tension on your bobbin, your tension may be too loose or too tight. When my bobbin is full of thread the tension has to be stronger than when it is almost empty. So tight when it's full and loose when it's nearly empty. I hope this helps. If this doesn't work try using a air can to blow out the dust in your bobbin casing and make sure the bobbin doesn't have any burs. It needs to be wound smoothly. Also check for thread hangups in the bobbin casing area. Also you may want to completely re-thread your machine.

Why would hand wheel be binding or stopping sew machine in one area


Needle may be having a hard item getting through a thick wad of fabric -- use a heavier-size needle. Or, threads have bunched up and need to be cut to release the machine. Check the underside of fabric for bunching threads in that case -- and adjust your top tension.

When i start to sew it binds up from the bottom


be sure to hold the top and bottom threads in back and away from machine as you start to sew. once you have sewn several stitches you can let go and continue sewing. sometimes this is all that is needed to avoid the "birds nest" on the bottom of the project.

Edge of fabric shows ripples, balanced stitch though both threads look tight


I would ease up on the pressure, and use a teflon foot or a walking (or even feed, same thing) to sew it.

I have a Euro-Pro 7500. I can't seem to sew a straight stictch without the thread binding up from the bottom of the material.


Do you mean the thread knots and loops up under or over the fabric? If so it sounds like you need to re-thread. You may have not put the thread into one of the tension wheels correctly. Keep the presser foot up when you do it.

check the needle to see if it's bent-roll on flat surface to see if it rolls correctly
blunt needle- makes popping sound going thru fabric
damaged needle-end broke off
try rethreading machine-some sewing machine bind up when the thread come off the thread take up lever
make sure there is no lint or loose thread in the bobbin area

The bobbin binds up underneath plate and stops


Hello, I have a Designer 1 and an SE.
You did not say what you are doing when this happens.

When this happens to me, it is usually because the feed dogs are unable to advance the fabric. If I am mending and using the zigzag and get a lump in the mend, the fabric hangs and if I keep sewing, I will get a huge nest.

I have found that listening to the machine can tell you when something is not right and you can stop it before you get a huge nest.

Here is what I would do-
1. Un thread the machine and re thread. Make sure you are in the take up hook. The silver metal hook that goes up and down and advances the thread.
2. Check that the bobbin is not wound too much. This can be adjusted by turning the white button adjacent to the bobbin winder.

Tension Problems with Janome DC3050


If your machine is binding. It sounds like you have a threading problem. Check your manual and rethread the machine. The A is for Automatic tension I would not change that. I would also notify your dealer and see if you have thread under the bobbin case. All sewing machines should be serviced each year.
