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.

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.

When doing appliqueson a shirt, there small holes all around it. If you stretch stretch the shirt afterwards, it tears. What am I doing wrong?


Wrong needle perhaps? if the shirt is a knit then you should be using a ball point needle to sew it, probably a size 70 or 80 for jersey weight. You probably should back the project with a tear away stabiliser too to give the machine grip and hold the fabric while stitching.

And finally, check that you are using a good quality machine embroidery thread as these are glossy, fill the satin stich nicely, and are designed for this purpose.

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

Thread bunches under the material


There ARE still parts for your 7570 - amazing how rumors can get around!

Could be any number of things - from something as simple as a thread caught somewhere in the upper/lower tensions to the tension assembly to timing to any number of other things? You may have already tried some of these - hope this helps:

  1. Try "flossing" your upper tension - this is nothing more than running a heavyweight thread (such as upholstery or 12 weight thread) through the threading paths. Grasp the thread at the beginning of the threading path and the end coming through the needle and "FLOSS" (back and forth - just like you do your teeth). This will usually pull through anything that is gently stuck.
  2. Pretty much the same thing for the bobbin thread - if you're comfortable doing so, loosen the tension screw on the side of the bobbin case to make sure there aren't any little bits of thread fuzz stuck under the tension plate on the side of the bobbin case.
  3. Also remove the needle plate to allow you to better see the upper part of the bobbin system - if there are any bits of thread, etc. stuck in there, you may be able to see them and pull out with tweezers (turn machine off before you do this so the tweezers don't accidentally come into contact with anything).

If this doesn't work, you'll need to have a sewing machine tech look at it (I would recommend a Pfaff-trained tech as they're going to be the most familiar with your machine). The 2140/2144/2170 use most of the same parts - even the new CV still uses some of the same parts.

Good Luck,
Kim

Can you sew a normal zig zag on a scrap piece to check if the bobbin thread is being picked up.....if not, or only on one side of the ZZ, then your timing will need adjusting.

OR...

Are you using an old blunt needle ?

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.
