It sound like it's your feeddog---check your operation's manual

sounds like the feeddog is in the wrong position

Fabric feeds crooked when sewing


Would suggest taking your machine for service. Could be the feed dogs need adjustment or realignment. Also, make sure you are using the correct presser foot for your machine. With all the new machines that have 7mm and 9mm presser feet (most older machines have 4mm or 5mm), using the incorrect width presser foot may cause the fabric to skew.

I was given a brother cs-8150. The manual says it will operate without foot feed. I tried to use auto sew and machine tells me to change speed controller mode to off. Where do I do that.


Not able to find any online instructions for your machine, so here goes. There may be some confusion as to what foot feed means.

I believe foot feed refers to the feed dogs. When you disable the feed dogs (drop them), then you must manipulate the fabric manually--used mostly for darning or free motion quilting. In essence the feed dogs are no longer moving the fabric for you. Instead, you manually move the fabric and control the speed at which it stitches with your foot control. Perhaps that is why you need to turn off the speed control because you will determine the speed with your foot.

Foot control refers to the foot pedal that you use to control the speed that the machine sews (much like the gas pedal in your car). Some machines have the ability to sew without the use of a foot control unit. To do so, there is usually a button or lever somewhere to start and stop the machine. When activated, the machine will continue to stitch until you stop it.

Hopefully this will help you find a resolution.

Fabric does not feed through machine


When you sew the machine must be set at the correct settings. If your machine won't straight stitch, turn it off at the power point and then turn it back on. Most machines reset to the default straight stitch setting. Secondly when you sew the presser foot must be down. This engages the "feed dogs" or the triangular looking "teeth" below the presser foot. As you sew, the feed dogs grab the two layers of fabric pulling them through, the thread above (spool) and the thread below (bobbin) meet to form the stitch. Finally, maybe fiddling around with dials and settings you may have dropped, or disengaged the feed dogs. Check with your manual on how to re-engage the feed dogs. Hope this helps and happy sewing. Remember, when all else fails..... read the manual.

Problem with brother vx-1120 will not feed fabric


This is usually caused by the feed-dog ( the metal teeth in the area below the needle) being down instead of up - run your finger under there (over the teeth) if they do not stick up above the base line of the machine, they cannot feed the fabric. If this is the case, look in your manual (or and online manual for your machine) and find out how to put the feed dog up. Other than this, some machines have a plastic plate which fits over the feed dog, so that you can do free machine embroidery, if this is the case, you should be able to remove this and the fabric will feed through

I have a brother B757, I am making curtains and the fabric at the bottom ends up being longer than the fabric at the top can you solve this


I found out that by spraying silicone on each side of joins that it made the fabric glide through the feed dog real easy, this really works well, make sure that the silicone is suitable for sewing machines.

The cloth does not feed properly


Make sure you have enough pressure on the presser foot, if you are sewing on a slippery fabric put some tissue paper on top of the fabric then sew.

Needle getes broken


Check to see if your needle plate is gouged or signs that the needle is hitting the plate. If so, you may be pulling a little too hard when the fabric is feeding. Sometimes when you pull too hard, it pulls the needle back and it will hit the plate instead of going into the needle hole and you will break needles. Try just letting the fabric feed itself and you simply guide it to make sure it stays in a straight line.

Brother XL-6562 sewing machine is not feeding fabric through properly


Oil might help but it sounds like you don't have enough pressure on the foot. You can take the casing off where the light is and there is a screw back there that controls the tension on the pressure foot. It is not meant to be changed by anyone but a professional. I've changed the tension but it wasn't easy. If you are still interested let me know and I will try to explain.
