I don't think you have an evolve, dear. It's a serger. If you put this question under the right product, you will get helpful answers. All I can think is that your machine wants the feed dogs lowered manually? I have no other suggestion.

It seems the problem is the excess pressure of the foot when down.. it must somehow be related to thread tension.. can I change foot pressure?


Depends on the make/model of your machine. Most machines do have a pressure adjustment for the presser foot. Sometimes it is explained in the owner's manual.

Newer machines have a dial somewhere. Older machines will have a screw at the very top of the presser foot bar (sometimes under the top cover). Turning the screw right will increase the pressure, left will release it. Other machines have a plunger type projection on the top left of the machine. Pushing the plunger down will increase the presser foot pressure. To release the plunger, press down on the ring that encircles the plunger.

The pressed foot lifter won't hold the material, I can push it up down turn it around this is not right


Are you saying the presser foot has very light pressure on the fabric? If so, most machines have the ability to increase the pressure the presser foot applies to fabric and feed dogs. It depends on your machine's make & model where & how that pressure is adjusted. Older machines usually have a large skrew or knob at the top of the needle bar that tightens down on a big spring, thus the tighter spring increases the pressure. Newer machines sometimes have a dial usually located on the top left or side of the machine head. (Consult your owner's manual.)

I am using my walking foot to stitch in the ditch my quilt. The foot is not pulling my fabric through consistently.


The quilted fabric may be too thick for the walking foot to move along smoothly. Try using a zipper foot which is much slimmer and can get close to the line of stitching.

When I put the presser foot down and begin to stitch, the needle just keeps sewing in the same place, and the presser foot won't allow me to easily move the fabric.


You might want to see if the drop feed control is down. There's a switch (for my Singer machine, you have to take off the removable sewing table/storage, and the switch is behind the machine)...if the drop feed is down, you can't see the "teeth" as I call them which grips the fabric.

Another idea is to back stitch (reverse sewing lever) a couple stitches and then try sewing.

Make sure the foot speed control is hooked up correctly. https://wiki.artisansasylum.com/images/0/0f/Sewing_Machine_--_Singer_3116_--_Manual.pdf This is the manual for your sewing machine model you posted. Good luck.

Hi the pressure foot in my toyota RS2000 does not move when i try to sew. What could be the problem


check the feed dogs that are under the needle plate to see if there up or down,, if they are up you can feel them when you slide your finger over them,, only if there up can the machine sew,

the pressure foot holds the fabric against the feed dogs & the feed dogs move the fabric

What is pressure foot on sewing machine. where is pressure foot


This is the foot that comes down and holds the fabric layers under the needle.

There will be a pressure foot lever to raise and lower the pressure foot at the back of the sewing area, it usually operates vertically, although some makes have a lever that works horizontally.

The pressure foot needs to be lowered BEFORE you start stitching as it activates the top tension and also helps with the stitch formation by holding the fabric firmly as the needle moves up and down.

Cloth will not move forward


Cogs are feed dogs.

Check your manual to see if there is a pressure adjustment for the presser foot.

This may be a nob on top of the machine directly over the presser foot.

Turning the adjustment left/less or right/more pressure.

Also, refer to the manual for cleaning the bobbin and feed dog area as lint may be causing a bit of the problem.

Very old Necchi sewing machine - sews in place


sounds like the feed dogs may be down or not working. Watch to see if the little teeth are moving under the pressure foot when you stitch( try to run unthreaded and with foot up no fabricto check) May be a button to turn up the feed dogs.
