To embroider with your machine you need to remove the foot so you can free hand the material. If the foot is on you can not free hand in the direction you would like to move. If the foot is on you can only sew straight. If I get the right make and model # I will get you a manual to help you more.

Good Luck

Perhaps you could consult the manual located under this link: http://janome.com/documents/File/ManualFile/MC350E_Instr_book.pdf It's not exactly your model, but seems very similar in construction, and even the 9000 is mentioned inside. This should be able to get you started.

The presser foot may need to be removed or adjusted. For more info on that check here:

    1. What do I need to get
      started at free machine embroidery?



      • A zigzag sewing machine with a drop-feed control. (In other
        words, you have to be able to lower the feed dogs so they don't try to
        feed the fabric.) It's nice if you can vary the width of your
        zigzag stitches too.



      • An embroidery foot or needle with embroidery spring. An
        embroidery foot helps by holding the fabric down against the
        throat plate while nevertheless being minimal - it lets you see
        what you're doing because it has very little surface area. You can
        alternatively get a needle that has a kind of spring built into
        it, and the spring holds the fabric in place. These can be nice in
        that they're even more minimal than an embroidery foot, but
        they're also relatively expensive and if it breaks you have to
        replace the whole thing instead of using an ordinary cheap needle
        with the special embroidery foot. If you use the needle with
        spring, you don't use a presser foot while you embroider.



      • An embroidery hoop. There are two primary kinds of embroidery
        hoops on the market. The old-fashioned kind, usually made of wood,
        has an outer ring and an innter ring. You loosen the outer ring,
        separate the rings, place the fabric over the inner ring, place
        the outer ring over the fabric, tighten the outer ring, and pull
        the fabric tight in the hoop. With the modern type hoop, you
        squeeze a pair of handles on the inner ring to remove it, place
        the fabric over the outer ring, place the inner ring (still
        squeezed) into place and release the handles. The more modern hoop
        is faster and easier. The old-fashioned hoop provides better
        tension on the fabric.



      • Stabilizer. This helps prevent puckering and slipping while
        you're embroidering. There are a variety of types out there. Some
        are papery and are torn away from the embroidery when you're
        done. Only use that on the back side of the embroidery,
        as it's almost impossible to get it all off. Others are also
        papery and also tear away but are dissolvable in cold water,
        leaving only a few easy-to-remove fibers in the embroidery. Your
        authors like this type of stabilizer. There is also a transparent
        plastic-like stabilizer which dissolves completely in water. Your
        authors have this but haven't tried it yet, but hear it's very
        nice. It's expensive though.



      • Fabric... of course. Make sure that your embroidery
        hoop fits on the piece you're going to embroider on. If the
        piece is to be small, you may want to embroider before cutting the
        piece from the fabric.



      • Thread. Contrary to popular belief, you can use ordinary
        polyester all-purpose thread to embroider, but it can weaken the
        fabric you're embroidering on. (If you do use polyester, you may
        want to fuse some interfacing to the back of your embroidery when
        you're done.) There is plenty of gorgeous 100% rayon embroidery
        thread available.



      • Thread for the bobbin. This won't be seen on the surface, so
        you can use anything you want. Trying to find a way to get rid of
        that day-glo orange thread you can't remember why you bought?
        Stick it in the bobbin when you embroider. Some embroiderers feel
        that it's best to use a softer thread (like 100% cotton) in the
        bobbin so as to reduce the possibility that the bobbin thread
        will break the embroidery thread, but your authors haven't had a
        problem with this to date.





    2. How do I prepare the machine
      and fabric for free machine embroidery?

      Drop the feed dogs and set the stitch length at zero. (If you can't
      set the stitch length at zero, don't panic, it's not that
      important.) Install the fabric in the embroidery hoop (with any
      stabilizer[s] you intend to use) so that the surface of the fabric
      is at the *bottom* of the hoop. (Note that if you're used to
      embroidering or cross stich by hand, this means you're putting the
      fabric in the hoop backwards.) When you place the hoop on the
      table such that the fabric surface rests on the table, the right
      side of the fabric should face up. Install the embroidery foot or
      special embroidery needle with spring on the sewing machine. If
      you're using the special needle, remove the presser foot. Place
      the embroidery hoop in the sewing area. (Some machines can't lift
      the presser foot enough to admit some hoops - you may have to
      remove the presser foot temporarily, position the hoop, and then
      re-install the presser foot if you're using one.) Set the sewing
      machine for a straight stitch. Reduce the upper tension until
      stitches interlock below the fabric instead of above or inside it.




    3. How do I lock the thread at
      the beginning and end of my embroidery so it doesn't begin to
      unravel?

      Make several stitches in place to lock the thread.

Error message foot too high. To correct this, it is necessary to restart the machine. Unless it is impossible to continue sewing.What is the problem?


Hi,
Try taking your presser foot off and lower the presser foot lever. Does the error code go away? The machine won't sew without the presser foot to hold the fabric down, but without threading the needle, will the machine run without the presser foot? Now try the standard presser foot (usually J ) and if you get the error code then the sensor at the top of the presser foot assembly is out of adjustment. Without knowing more about your machine this is all I can suggest.
Good luck,
Bob

I am getting the message Remove Senso One-Step Buttonhole Foot I don't have a buttonhole foot in


If you have a presser foot, remove it and try installing a different foot. Your machine is looking for a specific presser foot that has a sensor on it. Make sure you are using a presser foot made for your machine.

Presser foot wont connect


It is most likely the presser foot you are trying to install was not made for your machine. There are so many machines available and most of those machines have their own presser feet, which are not interchangeable. Unfortunately, even a Singer presser foot is not interchangeable with other Singers. Some have screw attachments, others have lever attachments, some have long shanks, others have short, some are straight, others are slanted. You need to figure out what style presser foot your machine takes and then search for either the presser feet that fit or a shank adapter that you can then use snap-on feet (kits are available on eBay).

Why does it show error message indicating that pressure foot is up, when it's not?


On a Brother machine you will get the "EE" code if the presser foot doesn't go all the way down, and this can happen if you have the optional walking foot on the machine. Try removing the presser foot.

Presser foot stuck in down position


There could be a piece of the needle stuck in the bobbin area, try sliding the base plate off [not easy with the foot down i know] and see if you can clean it out.

The machine keeps giving me an error message with a diagram showing the foot should be down. It is, but it won't sew anything. I can thread a bobbin, so I know there is power to the machine. Also, when...


that presser foot with that black thing that is just flopping around... well when the presser foot is down that thing should be locked into the side hole. when you have the presser foot up, put it into the side hole, fiddle with it, move it around til you find that hole, then drop the presser foot it should be locked on it now. That T presser foot needs that.

Persistent E1 message


some machines have a presser foot sensor or switch which prevents the machine sewing if the foot is not down.

if your presser foot is down and you still cannot sew the switch or switch actuator is most likely damaged. you will require a tech to repair this.
