SOURCE: need help in using the grace sure stitch regulator

I am having irregular stitches on the forward/backward motion. I am using a Janome 16000 P on a Gracie II frame. (I purchased this as a used productin a private sale) Do I need a darning plate to effectively use the Sure Stitch regulator in a free motion mode or with a template?

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.

Stitch regulator not working properly


it would be a good idea to have the machine checked, the stitch
length regulator need to be checked to see if it's worn or a gear
that move the part is worn and may need to be replaced.

Shredding thread


have you checked to see if the needle is inserted into the needle
holder correctly
have you checked to see if it's the correct size needle for the machine& for the fabric
check for burrs in the needle plate area & on the bobbin case
if these suggestions don't help then it's possible that the machine
needs to be checked at a sewing machine shop to see if the
machine could be slightly out of time.

Machine sews fine when it is set up on a table, but when it is on the Gracie II quilting frame and operated by their stitch regulator, the stitch quality is very bad. It varies from fair to very bad - I...


Use a carpenter's level to level up your frame, and be sure to keep the quilt leveled up to barely above the throat plate on the machine, and level front to back. Check the connections on the regulator sensors. If even one is not making good connection, you'll have skipped or broken stitches.

Model 385-15343600 Serial 71073690 The stitches are very, very small all the time regardless which of the tension used (bobbin and needle).


The stitch length dial needs to be set to a lower number (number of stitches per inch) to give you longer stitches. The tensions do not regulate the stitch length, the feed dogs regulate the distance the material is advanced between stitches. Also, make sure the pressure foot is applying enough pressure to keep the material in firm enough contact with the feed dogs.

I have a Janome 1600P QC drags on a Little Gracie 2 frame


Sorry for your headache. It is the frame. If it is not level, balanced, you have hell to pay. Also it there is a nick in the grooves of the carriage tracks this will cause a machine problem. You may be able to repair the frame, or level it about the old level the table trick, put something under that part.

Good luck

Needle Thread breaking after about 30 seconds of quilting


Make sure the feed dogs are dropped (or feed dog cover is on - I can't remember which way this machine works). The stitch length on the machine has no function so ignore it. (I set it to zero so the machine doesn't have to work as hard). Hopefully this is all that's wrong. If not, use a shorter setting for the stitch length on the regulator, oil the hook and move slowly and smoothly.
Good luck!
