Question about Baby Lock Ellure

Open Question

Machine is making a clicking noise while sewing. The stitches are still normal and so is the embroidery stitching. I thought that maybe I needed to change my needle because it seems like that's where it is coming from, but that did not make it stop. Any advice would be helpful, I live over an hour away from the nearest service dealer. Thanks so much!

Check the easy stuff first:
Make sure the needle is inserted in the machine properly- a good rule of thumb is the flat side of the needle should go to the opposite side of the last thread guide. Also make sure the machine is threaded correctly.

the needle is in correctly with the flat side to the rear of the machine, make sure to thread the upper and lower portions of the machine correctly.

the needle is in the machine correctly- all the way up into the needle bar, make sure that it is threaded correctly, etc. If this all checks out ok, take the bobbin case out of the machine. There are two ears on either side of the bobbin case- turn the left one to the left and the right one to the right. Remove the silver ring, and inspect the piece of metal that the ring came off of (looks like a circle with the top cut off). You have to locate the hook which is the piece that looks like a half moon inside the big round metal piece. Locate the tip of it, turn the handwheel toward you until the needle is in the lowest position, at this point the tip of the hook should be flush with top of the left side of the cut off circle. If this is not so, your machine needs to be re-timed. If that is the case.

SOURCE: I need to satin stitch around the edge of a project

Try using the zig-zag setting, but adjust the stitch length to .3 or .4 (very small).
good luck!

You have to have the computer program to merge patterns.

My sewing machine will not make decorative stitches?


Is it an embroidery only machine. Typically embroidery is done with the needle in a fixed position while the hoop is moved around.

Why is my machine making a clicking noise when embroidering


The reason for clicking could be one of so many issues from one that could be resolved with a slight adjustment to one that needs a technician's hand. Start with where the clicking sound is amplified.

If it's louder at the top, coming from inside, it would definitely need a tech. If it's coming from the pantograph (the embroidery unit arm that holds the hoop), it could be a fraying cable (call a tech) or maybe just the hoop isn't set into the grooves properly.

If it's clicking only when the needle penetrates the fabric, check to see if the needle is damaged or dull and change it; or if the sound is evolving from further down in the bobbin area it could mean that the hook is not meeting with the needle properly and it needs to be timed (call a tech) but first check to see if maybe the bobbin's in backwards or if the needle is seated correctly.

If it happens only when you stitch one particular embroidery design, it could mean that the design is stitch intensive - lighten the density and remove unnecessary stitches.

If you switch from regular sewing to using the embroidery unit, make sure you have made all of the necessary adjustments to settings on the machine like lowering the foot feed and whatever else is required of your model (check your manual).

Bottom line, make sure you have everything threaded right, bobbin area and all thread paths clean, a new needle properly seated and all other things set right and if that doesn't solve the problem, call a tech.

Embroidery not working correctly


Well, before I did all that (which may be necessary), I would take a piece of UNWAXED dental floss or hand embroidery floss and floss between the tension disks. You mentioned that you were suddenly breaking threads; there may be lint or loose threads or both seated between the disks, preventing the thread from seating properly. Then,
I would take the embroidery unit off and try to do some sewing with it, to see what results I got. If you can catch and bring the bobbin thread to the top with the top thread, I am doubtful that your timing is off. Sew a line of both straight stitch and zigzag stitches, and see if the stitches are balanced. If not, you may have a bobbin tension issue, and if so, most bobbin cases can be adjusted.

I think you'll find, though, that things will improve considerably when you have cleaned out the upper thread path and tension disks. Make sure when you do that, that your foot is raised, so that the disks are spread. Oh, a drop of sewing machine oil wouldn't hurt either--generally you should put a drop of oil for every 5 hours of embroidery.

How to stich embroidery


That would depend on if you have a regular home sewing machine or a embroidery machine. I'm going to assume that you have a regular machine.

There is something called free hand embroidery. you lower or disengage the feed dogs, take off the presser foot. Some use a darning foot and others just leave the foot off. Hopefully your design is already marked on the fabric. Place fabric in a regular hand embroidery so they fabric is right side up but the hoop makes it sit down in the rings. (make sense) Fit your hoop on the bed of the sewing machine, under the presser foot/presser foot bar. Lower the presser foot lever. (important for tension) and select stitch style and length. you may need to adjust tensions too.

Begin stitching, take a couple stitches... then reverse a couple... then snip the loose ends. Continue to stitch, guiding the hoop so that the needle follows the design. Start slowly and as you discover how your hand movements effect the length of the stitches... you can speed up and slow down as you need to create your design.

Free hand stitching


Drop your feed dogs, remove your normal foot... replace with embroidery or darning foot... or leave without a foot. stretch fabric in a hoop..... set your stitch.. and sew as you move the hoop.

Cant embroider on toyota quiltmaster 50


The Quiltmaster 50 can only do free-hand embroidery. Use the darning foot. Set the machine for a satin stitch with a stitch length of 0 and lower the feed dogs. Manually move the hoop to stitch your design. (Trace the design on the fabric and place on a stabilizer if needed. Center the design in an embroidery hoop and move the hoop under the needle. In my limited experience, all fabrics need stabilizers. Some require multiple sheets of stabilizer.)

Personally, I have trouble moving any fabric under the pressure foot. This is mostly a matter of practice. You have to make a lot of scrap piece trials.

This site has the manual for the Quiltmaster 50 (European version): http://www.home-sewing.com/WebRoot/Store/Shops/homesewing/4AAF/95FA/5ED9/1505/56BA/4D44/240A/754B/QUILT50_0020_EFNI_0020__0020_679111-CEA10.pdf . See page 37 (49 of the PDF).

I hope this helps.

(who actually cheats: I either use an embroidery sewing machine or I use a late 1960s Singer Sewing machine with its Monogramming accessory. This has pre-programmed designs on little discs. That's why I don't practice free-hand stitching.)

HI,
Did you make sure that you raised the feed dogs? There is a sliding button on the front that you have to move sideways to let the feedogs come up. If not the fabric is not being move right and that may be the reason of the wrong stitching.
Also, are you oiling your machine appropriate?
