Are you using a fabric stabilizer to prevent the t-shirt fabric from stretching?

Also, be sure to Always Raise the presser foot when threading the top thread. Knots could be bird nests.

Thread bunching up ? What type thread should i use ?


Where is the thread bunching up?Make sure you have the correct thread for the needle size and material. Make sure that the thread is not old and that the needle is not bent. also, check the top tension in relation to the material being used. You could clean out the feed dogs in case there is lint jammed in there too. :)

My janome M/C 500e when I do any embroidery the bobbin thread comes through to the top of the material


Adjust the bottom tension, it needs to be looser. The top tension may also be too tight. Try loosening them just 1/4 turn and see if that helps.

Cotton is loose/looping under material?


Sounds like bird nesting.
The #1 thing is to install a brand new needle (old, worn, nicked, or bent needles can create a lot of havoc).

Remove all the thread from the machine. RAISE the presser foot and rethread from the beginning verifying that it is threaded correctly. Make sure the bobbin is loaded and threaded in the bobbin case properly.

Janome mb4 restarts in different place after stop to replace broken needle


My machine is a bit different than yours but there is a way to back up your Janome 10 stitches at a time. Here is a thread that I initiated at the janome embroidery forum that should help you. Digimad included a detailed help for me. It should direct you to get you going again. Do join the forum the gals there are generally a great bunch and very helpful.

Thread is knotting up on bottom of fabric causing it to stop


1.check the needle & see if it's bent--if so replace
2.lay the needle on a flat surface & roll the needle over if it doesn't roll true replace
3.check for blunt needle-if needle makes a popping sound when needle penetrates fabric
4.needle is not all way up in holder
on my mechanical sewing machine sometimes the threads come off the take up lever, that causes the thread to bunch up under something I'm working on
also check thread in bobbin

I want to sell my 1991 New Home memory Craft 8000 sewing machine


A good place to see what machines are selling for is Ebay. That's where I sold a sewing machine and an embroidery machine.

It helps to know your product and machine embroidery lingo.

What are cassettes? Floppy disks? These make the machine borderline obsolete.

Memory cards are still around, but most EM now have USB connectivity or USB flash drives.

Satin thread? Embroidery machines use Rayon or Polyester embroidery thread.

Having had the machine recently serviced is also a plus.

I have a Kenmore 148.13110 Sewing Machine (1975) I would like to thread the machine, and it seems like the clothes advancing mechanism is not moving/advancing the material, why? Tony


the feed dogs are what pushes on the material from underneath. perhaps they have been lowered ? You do that for free hand or embroidery work,
look for a lever at the back, behind the bobbin area. That's where they are in the janome, which is related to the kenmore somehow; good luck

after 8 years of sitting, the machine needs to go to the shop so that areas that are inaccessabe to the sewer can be cleaned and serviced by the tech. also check the upper threading of the machine. the tension is changed if threaded incorrectly. bunching under the material is caused by several different reasons. I would first have the machine cleaned and serviced by the tech, and let them know it has been 8 years since use. we all begin walking by taking one step at a time.
