am I right that the feed dogs do not drop on this machine?
Yes, this is correct....but you have to change the needle plate to a thicker one, so the feed dogs will be below the needle plate.

I have a MC4000 and a manual. To raise or drop the feed dog, remove the accessory box and feel at the back of the free arm there is a lever that will slide left or right to raise or lower the feed dog. I am not a quilter, but the manual says to use foot A (zigzag foot) and accessory L (quilter) which appears to be a guide. Cheers, Deb, Townsville, Australia

Janome now has a darning foot ie it looks like an embroidery foot with a spring designed for the 1600 models. It is metal with a ring where the needle goes down through it. I removed the plastic lens inside the ring and this seems to have resolved the problem.
I usually pull my threads to the top so I can see where they are and not getting tangled underneath.
There are several good groups on Yahoo groups which offer support for starting out on quilting

Are you threading it correctly? I've had this problem twice, the first few times the thread was wrapped around different items (below the spool holder and then around the needle) the other times I threaded it wrong. Double check that the machine is threaded correctly with the manual. I've missed a step here or there and it does make a difference.
