Question about Singer 7436 - INGENUITY
Purchased this machine to try to do simple stipple quilting projects with free motion sewing. I can lower the feed dogs, but the machine doesn't seem to want to sew - the bobbin thread just knots up behind. Is this not something the machine will do? There are no directions in the manual, so any help would be appreciated.
You need to set the stitch length to '0', use some stabilizer to help stiffen the material slightly (you can use it to trace your design onto as well) and try using an embroidery hoop this sometimes helps.
When you start you must push the needle down through the material and up again using the machines wheel and pull the bottom thread through from underneath. Do a couple of stitches to fix the thread and then go.
The most important thing to try and get right is the machines tension, this can sometimes be trial and error I am afraid. My machine tension works best on about a '3'.
