Question about Janome Memory Craft 4800QD
My machine was fine whilst I was doing free motion quilting. When I then went back to the standard set up, it then would sew a few stiches and then grind to a halt and flash up E5 Error. When switched on and off would sew then do it again.

its the sensor on the bobinwinder who are loose. If you are handy. you can remove the top cover of the machine.
And on the left side of the bobinwinder you will find a micro switch. Probably you have to tighten the screw on it..

You're absolutely correct, you'll need to either drop the feed dogs (lever generally located near the bobbin case or on the outside base of machine) or cover the feed dogs with a plate (many machines have this included).
Then... you'll need to lower the presser foot - when you lower it, it should NOT touch the bed of the machine but sit slightly raised off the fabric surface. As you stitch the presser foot will lower onto the fabric to hold it taught as the needle penetrates.
Oddly enough it's easier to achieve smooth stitches when sewing at a faster speed, but begin by stitching fairly slowly until you get a feel for free-motion stitching. You'll be doing all the guiding and it may feel a bit strange and uncontrolled at first.
Position yourself at your machine so that when your hands on your fabric/bed of machine, your shoulders are relaxed (not all hunched up) and your elbows are slightly higher than the bed of the machine.
You'll want to stitch in a side-to-side or back and forth motion (as opposed to trying to turn the fabric.
Best of luck with this technique. Once you're comfortable with it, you're sure to enjoy the freedom of creating!
