Start the stitch in the forward (normal) direction, then hit the reverse for a stitch or two. At the end of the stitch, reverse for a stitch or two. Always end a stitch in reverse.

I have a baby lock Elizabeth. When quilting with the feed dogs down, the fabric gets caught and shortens the stitches real small. What can I do to fix this?

Are you using the "Quilting foot"?
Stitch setting on stitch #3 and lengthen the stitch a bit that should help tons.

Sewing backwards

sewing backwards is primarily to lock the threads at the start of a sewing process ans so stop unraveling of the stitch
it should be about 1/2 " long so you start sewing 1/2 inch , reverse back to start then reverse and sew on as normal
finish of the stitch should be the same before you raise the foot and snip the cottons

Why does my thread knot on the back when stitching in place?

Several things to try:
Pull thread tails (both bobbin thread and upper thread) straight back and when you lower the presser foot, make sure they are held down straight back. This may or may not be enough to solve the problem, but it is simple to try, and often works. You might want to hold the thread tails while you start sewing.
Use a starter--folded piece of fabric scrap about an inch long--and begin sewing oink middle of starter. Push the fabric you want to see right up to the starter and keep sewing from the starter right onto your project without lifting the presser foot or cutting the thread. When you finish sewing, cut the little piece of thread between the starter and your project.
Before lowering presser foot, use wheel to lower your needle once and then pull up bobbin thread to top surface of your project. Then hold both bobbin and upper thread tails, lower your presser foot, and begin sewing. Release the thread tails after a few stitches.
Hope this helps. Those nasty "thread nests" are a real pain.

When "locking " a stitch, bottom thread breaks and/ or bunches up.

Make sure you hold thread in back of the lowered presser foot when you begin stitching, and that the needle is piercing the fabric so that the fabric isn't slipping down into the feed dogs (under needle plate area).Hope this helps you out,alexlefebvre.Jimmy

Need basic settings for Baby Lock BL450 Serger. Any idea where I can get it?? My book was lost. The threads don't wrap around the edge of the fabric. I've re-loaded 3 times following the diagram on...

Hi GailKelley,
I have the same model serger. I will make a copy of the stitches and figure out how to get it to you. I recently took my serger out of storage to start some projects. I always struggle threading it but love the look of the stitches when it is set up correctly. Be in touch. MnFriend

My singer 7444 makes beeping sounds when operated, the machine fails to start.

Ensure that your stitch width and your spacing are set to a green-light setting. Also, ensure that your stitch wheel will operate(It will lock in the case of a jam.), and check to see that the stitch you have selected is compatible with the kit load you have onboard, i.e. for buttonholing, ensure you have the automatic buttonhole foot attached and the buttonhole lever down. In all other stitches, ensure the buttonhole lever is in the full up position. 

The 7444 Precision is a "Smart" machine, and will not allow you to attempt a stitch that simply will not work with the wrong stitch spacing and width settings applied. Move the sliders slowly until each one lights up green, or at least does not light up yellow/orange at all.

Zig zag drops stitches

clean hook area first, too much lint under the bobbin case can do this for sure. Also, if you are using a heavier thread use a lager needle, top stitch thread needs a heaver needle or larger eye needle . A size 100/16 regular or 90/14 top stitch needle can really help if using heavier thread.

I can't find out how to put a space between words or names when embroidering on the Brother PE 700II. I am also not able to find out how to do this in any of the instruction manuals.

I am not totally sure but I do not think you can leave a space. If you are doing two or more words and want to leave a space then you would have to completely finsh sewing at the end of each word(cut the thread) and start the next word seperate. To continue sewing straight through the thread will remain attached and will form a stitch. Sounds strange but if you think about it, it is logical, with the machine threaded and sewing, every needle stroke WILL form a stitch. Other thing you could do is at the end of every word select an "underscore" and stitch this to whatever gap you need between words then start your new word. Once you have finished unpick the "underscore.
Sounds a bit complicated and time consuming but as I said I have never been asked this before and it is a guess at a solution.
Best of luck
