Sometimes the foot pedal sticks, tap on it a few times with your foot to get it to stop, if that doesn't work, unplug the machine for a few minutes then try, if that doesn't work then it will need to go in for repair.

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.

What is the proper quilting stitch for FMQ


Straight stitch. Doesn't matter what stitch length you set. The stitch length is determined by how fast or slow you move the fabric in conjunction with the sewing speed of the machine. FMQ means that you manually move the fabric, so the feed dogs are disabled and a darning or FMQ presser foot is installed on the machine. The darning or FMQ presser feet have shorter shafts than other feet, which allows space for you to manipulate the fabric.

Search the internet for Free Motion Quilting. There are tons of web sites and videos available.

When following manual directions to wind a bobbin, it starts out OK, but after several winds, the thread turns out with little loops on the bobbin. ??? Sylvia


Make sure that you are running the thread through the winder tension guide before it goes bobbin winder. Best to consult your owner's manual.

Also, it helps to slow down the winding process. Slower speed winds the bobbin more consistently and does not stretch the thread as much as a fast speed will.

Having difficulty with free motion machine embroidery on my Janome Mystyle 16, top thread keeps breaking. What can I do to stop the thread from breaking? Plus the stitching is very erratic,any ideas?


1. Set up for regular sewing (not embroidery).
2. Adjust the tension of the bobbin and the top thread so that you have a nice straight stitch.
3. Check your thread quality. Is it fuzzy or have small trails sticking out. No Walmart thread allowed. Only top notch embroidery thread allowed.
4. When you've been successful with the thread and tension go ahead and set up for free arm.
5. Sew free arm but remember machine has to keep up with you. If you go too fast you will be pulling the thread and probably will break the thread.
6. Your erratic stitch is caused by the speed at which you are moving the hoop. Going fast; then slow is going to make a long stitch and then a short stitch, etc.

I find my janome overlock machine is very slow ,i would like to know how to increase its speed


There is no speed seperate control on overlockers other than the foot control but most sew at 1500 stitches per minute, very fast compared to sewing machines.

What is your stitch length set to as this could be the problem. For normal four thread stretch seam you would want the length set to beween 2 and 3 so double check this - the length knob is usually a knob on the right side near the flywheel.

Hopefully, the above solves the problem for you but if not, please message again.

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.

My necchi sewing machine stitches too fast


A lot of machines have a speed control, either on the machine or the foot control. I looked thru the manual and did not find anything about speed control. Look under the foot control for a screw that may have a + and - . Otherwise, you may want to take it back to see if service can adjust it for you.
