Remove extension table/accessory box by gentle pulling it away from machine. You are left with just the free arm. In the back of the free arm, lower left corner, you will fine the feed dog lever. Push the leaver to the right to lower the feed dog.Instructions for lowering and raising the feed dog are on page 48 of your owner's manual. Good luck!

Be sure and lower the presser foot lever as this controls whether or not you have any tension. My guess is you get a lot of loops under the fabric before it stops .

Pull out the removable table and you will see the drop down feed dogs switch lever behind the back of the machine. Move that lever to the left or right to have feed dogs go back to normal sewing mode OR for embroidery mode.

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.

If you can lower or disengage the feed dogs you can stitch free motion.
If the the feed dogs cannot be adjusted as described, you can set the stitch length to zero.
You can also tape an index card over the feed dogs and punch a hole where the needle needs to enter the needle/face plate.
A darning or free motion foot is needed.
Take a presser foot with you when shopping for the foot as it is important to match the shank length.
Newer sewing machines are low shank and the older ones long shank.
You can also order online at Clotilde (see "which foot to use" for a guide).
