Put the pedal backwards so you are pressing on the big open end of the pedal. It gives you greater control. Practice a couple of times first because it feels awkward,

Tension issues on my singer quantum 9960


A #16 needle seems pretty big for FMQ. Are you also getting pin holes in the fabric? Try using a top stitch, embroidery, or metallix needle.

Eyelashing is often a result of moving the fabric too quickly. Try speeding up your sewing speed or slow down the fabric movement. The object is to get the stitch speed equal to the fabric movement--and keeping it consistent. I tend to make swirls too fast which causes eyelashing.

It could also be tension. Be sure to ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the top thread.

Tl2000 and it is skipping stitches while quilting. I have changed the needle. I used needles 14 16 & 18 I have cleaned the machine. When I sew seams I have no problems.


Have you changed the type of needle--top stitch, embroidery, microtex? Sometimes that will help. Also, my skipped stitches occur in FMQ because the fabric is moving too fast for the machine speed or I have a jerky movement. It helps me to try slowing down the fabric movement or speed up the machine and practice making smooth, consistent movement. I've never done FMQ with a needle larger than an 80/12, so you might try a smaller needle to reduce the fabric grabbing the thread.

My Singer Sewing Machine runs too fast. Is there a way to slow it down?


what type of machine do you have. I have two that I operate with buttons and it has a little slide button to speed or slow down I don't know why it should run to fast with a foot pedal because you control the speed with your foot you may want to check to see if there is any trash that has gotten in the foot and somehow not allowing the foot to come back up

Speed control


I haven't sewn on this model in about 10 years, so I am rusty. I don't recall a slide or switch to set the range of stitch speeds, so one of the things you need to do is learn to feather the pedal instead of just stomping it. You can often figure out how to block the pedal travel with a couple thicknesses of cardboard cut to shape, or a piece of pencil eraser to mechanically block the highest pedal pressure, but usually it's just better to learn to control the pedal. Finally, the best free motion quilting is often done with high speed stitching but moderately slow fabric movement.

foot pedal are connected correctly to the machine.if they are
then the machine and power cord and foot pedal need to be

The thread keeps breaking while free motion quilting.It is a janome 1600p about 15 months old.It has been doing this for about a year and I have brought it into service at least 4 times for this...


Tough one! Did the machine ever work when it left the shop? if the shop said its working and its been in 4 times there could be a communication issue. I use schmetz brand quilting needles and have found some threaedds are so poor quality they cause this problem. Try a BEST quality thread, size 40 or 50....no bigger to start. Some folks buy big cones of thread and by the time they are used up the thread is brittle and weak. Work slowly...set the speed controller on the front of the machine at 1/2 to 2/3 speed and hold the pedal down to get a even speed. Dont move the fabric to fast, a slow smooth movement is whats needed. Practice on the same fabric and backing as you are trying to sew on. Bring it back to the dealer and ask them to try it. then you will have a better idea of whats what.

Machine does not sew steady or fast...have to pump foot pedal


Machine is slowing down if it has to change the speed. So if design contains a lot of long stitches or not optimized it will be sewn slow. If your software is surely updated to the latest version and still machine is sewing slow then probably you need to optimize your design.

P.S. Software Live Update you can find under "Help" submenu.

Free motion quilting skipped stitches, breaking threads


Might be that you need to lower the tensions quite a bit, you'll have to juggle with top and bottom tensions though, and experiment for just this operation with the Sensormatic.
