SOURCE: I have the Mega Quilter and Quilters Cruise Control. My stitches are very inconsistent.

I agree to have the regulator check, & even having the whole machine checked wouldn't hurt.

Janome Memory Craft 8200QC Horizon. Can you get a stitch regulator? How does it work? Does it help to free motion stitch ?


You should check with a Janome dealer if your machine can use a stitch regulator. Machines that take a stitch regulator need the ability to plug into the machine, which is not available on a lot of machines unless they have the stitch regulator function. A stitch regulator helps some people. It still takes a lot of practice moving the fabric smoothly.

On my BSR, it has an "eye" that measures the distance the fabric moves under the presser foot so it can stitch at the specified distance. The faster the fabric moves, the faster it stitches, but the stitches tend to more uniform in length.

FWIW, I read a summary of the Janome 8200 QC Horizon and there was no mention of a stitch regulator.

Will the Fab u motion with stitch regulator work with a Pfaff 2046?


You should probably verify with either the vendor selling the stitch regulator unit or your Pfaff dealer. It would be best to get a guarantee before purchasing.

Speed control


I haven't sewn on this model in about 10 years, so I am rusty. I don't recall a slide or switch to set the range of stitch speeds, so one of the things you need to do is learn to feather the pedal instead of just stomping it. You can often figure out how to block the pedal travel with a couple thicknesses of cardboard cut to shape, or a piece of pencil eraser to mechanically block the highest pedal pressure, but usually it's just better to learn to control the pedal. Finally, the best free motion quilting is often done with high speed stitching but moderately slow fabric movement.

Viking mega quilter


Are you using a stitch regulator? Try it with the foot control first. More information would help to solve your problem.

My Husqvarna viking 18x8 quilter will not quilt side to side only up & down.


You might check your rear encoder - this is the one mounted to the bottom of the roller base. If it is not making contact or is not plugged in correctly on both ends your machine will have this issue. This encoder could need to be replaced. This mostly affects the regulated stitch mode, but can also affect constant stitiching as well.

I have a pfaff grand quilter and have used it to do six quilts and has worked great but the last quilt i did the top thread kept breaking every few inches i have tried everything but in the end took it in...


I had a similar problem with the long stitches. One of the encoders for the stitch regulator was not turning all the time when I moved the machine. My dealer gave me a new one and now the machine works fine. It could also be your cable from the encoders to the machine. If the wires (very fragile) get broken, either the machine won't sew when you go side to side or back and forth, or it will make the intermittently long stitches you mentioned.

It's important to have the foot raised when you thread the machine. If you have it down, the thread won't get caught between the tension disks, and it will be very hard to get consistent stitches.

Skipped stitches & looping on the bottom of Quilt


Try a different needle. Use a quilting or topstitch or even a metallic needle - one that has a larger scarf than normal. The scarf is the groove at the back of the needle where the thread goes while the stitch is being formed. Quilting threads often need more "room" there. I have been told that the Inspira quilting needles are good because they have a thread groove on the front and the back of the needle. Not tried them personally but might be worthwhile for you to consider.

For the looping, you could fiddle with your tensions a little either loosening the bobbin tension or tightening the top, or both. Only ever do this in very small increments. But the good news is that even the "professional" quilters do not have perfect quilt backs - just have a look at them at quilt shows!
