Generally, it is better to use monofilament in the top, not in the bobbin. There is also a problem with tension so our instructor had us tape a paper clip vertically about midway between the spool pin and the first thread guide on the top of our machine, set the spool behind the machine in a small cup and ran the monofilament through the paper clip and threaded as normal.

How do I adjust tension on a Janome 1600p-qc for machine quilting?


Adjust the tension the same way as sewing regular projects. You want the top and bobbin threads to meet in the middle of the quilt sandwich. When quilting, I use a lighter weight thread so I have a separate bobbin case whose tension has been tightened specifically for quilting. For other sewing projects using a standard thread weight, I use a bobbin case that is factory set and then adjust the top thread tension for each project.

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.

Thread disappears up into the machine and out of the needle when using automatic thread cutter


.
  • It may be that there are quite a few thread ends in the mechanism. Remove the needle plate and pick out any detritus you may find. The cutter normally clamps down on the cut end to stop the issue you describe.
  • You are advised in the manual to use the thread cutter on threads of #30 or thicker, so it might not grip the thread once it is cut if you have thinner threads than the mechanism can cope with (or the threads are slippery)
  • If you are piecing patchwork I'd advise having a little heap of small scraps next to the machine. Then you can run onto a small scrap at the end of each seam and start the next seam without having to cut the threads each time. You work like making a string of flags and cut them off later.

Is there a special type of monofilament thread to use?


I would suggest that you don't use this thread, it is too fine for the tension device on a domestic sewing machine, and they just don't like it. Too strong, too fine. Its best used in industrial blind hemming machines, if you look at RTW trouser hems you'll often see monofilament utilised here.

How to fix Janome 7700 bobbin jams ?


Check your upper threading, don't touch your bobbin tension, it has nothing to do with thread tangling on the bottom of the cloth.
