You can soak the fabric in vinegar and salt water... Gently swirl the fabric around in the solution, change the water with fresh water, and if the colour still comes out, drain and repeat as necessary until the colour stops coming out.

What is the factory serting for the thread tension on a Janome Memory Craft 3000?


Factory setting is usually the midway point between high & low number. Sometimes it is specifically marked on the dial with a red line or a different color. Of course, this is only the general setting. Every machine is different (especially after use) so this setting needs to be tweaked. Even different kinds of fabric will require a tension tweak. The tension is correct when both threads meet in the middle of the fabric.

Do you need to wash fabric before laying it on the pattern?


Depends on the fabric...cotton shrinks quite a bit and some fabrics should not be washed, like some wools. And make sure you lay the pattern on top of the fabric...you have to be able to see the pattern to cut it.

When sewing after 5 mm the top color cotton is building under the material and stops.I opened it up clean the dust and still the same. can some one give me a hint please . thanks."?"


Remove the upper thread completely. Install a brand new needle. RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning. Confirm with the owner's manual the threading pathway is correct. Set the upper tension to the midway point between the high & low number. Retest.

Correct tension is when the upper and bobbin threads meet in the middle of the fabric. If bobbin thread is showing on the top of the fabric, loosen the upper tension. If upper thread is showing under the fabric, tighten the upper tension.

Make sure the thread, needle, and fabric are compatible.

Can you restore colour into fabrics if it has faded


Yes, but that would require some serious dying by hand. This isn't something that would normally be answered in a Sewing machine repair area. But google dharma trading company. depending on the fabric buy fiber reactive (natural plant fibers such as cotton, linen or rayon) or acid dyes (natural fibers such as wool, silk and some man made polyesters) About $5+ a color

If it has lots of colors and you are trying to be frugal you might try permanent markers. Bic has a good artists set under the name of Bic Mark-it.

When you work with either dyes or with markers, be sure to place something between the layers of fabric so you won't get bleed through.

Good luck.

Stitches missing on the bottom of fabric, forming big loops, while top of fabric stitches are normal


It sounds as if you have a tension problem. Let me give you instructions for adjusting the tension on anysewing machine. Be sure to have a scrap piece of the fabric you are using andthread the top of the machine with a different color of thread than thebobbin-it'll make it easier to see what's going on. Thread your machine with the presser foot UP. The disks that control the tension (threadgoes through them) are tightened up if the foot is down. Change the machine tension with the presser foot DOWN.Because the disks won't be engaged (see above) if the foot is up, the diskswon't move. Start at the middle setting, 3. Go up to tighten, decrease toloosen. Each machine is different, even 2 different machines of the same model.The best thing to do is start at 3 and use a different color in the top andbobbin thread so you can easily see what changes to the tension do to yourstitches. Now use a straight stitch a sew 3 or so inches. Take a lookat the top and bottom of the fabric. You don't want to see any (or at least notmuch) of the other color showing from the other side. Loops on the bottom of the fabric means you need to tighten(increase) your top tension. If you're stitches on the bottom are causingpuckering, then you need to loosen you're top tension. For the most part, youreally don't want to touch your bobbin tension-leave that to a repairtechnician. The factory setting shouldn't be touched except by someone whoreally knows what they're doing. Keep sewing a few inches at a time until you have the resultsyou want. Now you're tension is where you need it!

Pulls bottom colored thread to top...how do I ajust New Home 8000 trying to zig zag and bottom thread pulls color to top....


The bottom thread is the bobbin thread and it is suppose the pull the top thread slightly to the bottom/center of the layers of fabric.

Try a lower tension setting and a tear-away stabilizer or sheet of printer paper under the fabric to see if this will help hold the top thread down into the fabric.

Singer 301a...sews on top of fabric nicely...bottom is just loose loops of thread...it's like the bobbin is not sewing...I put 2 different colors in to see...top is perfect...on bottom of fabric I see the...


This is a tension adjustment problem. It's good to use two different colors of thread, like you did. From your description, the top thread (needle thread) tension needs to be tighter. As you tighten the tension of the top thread, you'll see that the top thread pulls the bobbin thread up into the fabric so it's no longer laying loose on the bottom of the fabric.

You'll need to have the pressure foot down when you tighten the tension. Tighten it a little, sew a practice seam, check to see what the stitch looks like. Tighten it a little more, sew, check, etc etc--until both top and bottom look the same--you shouldn't see much (if any) of the bobbin thread color on top of the fabric or the top thread color on the underside.

Let me know how this works for you, ok?
