Question about Vacuums

Open Question

I have a pfaff select 1530 bought aprox 2003. I would like to free motion quilt. Have bought an open toe quilting foot and have lowered the feed dogs. The quilt just doesn't move freely. It is very hard to manouvre. I have tried a friends machine to free motion quilt (not pfaff) and it is smooth and free flowing. I hasve tried changing the tension and stitch length. Can you suggest something.

This might sound too basic for you but check that the thread is tight around the bobbin. Make sure that the bobbin is in the right way around - the bobbin thread should double back on itself coming out of the bobbin holder. The bobbin tension adjustment is the small screw in the plate on the bobbin case that the thread passes under as it comes off the bobbin and goes out. This might not be exactly the same as yours but should give you an idea of the position.

What year is my singer sewing machine? AH251729? how do I purchase parts for it, like the zig zag attachment?


The Singer vintage machine site indicates that the AH251729 was made in 1947 in Elizabeth, NJ. For details see http://www.singermachines.co.uk/faq/tell-sewing-machine-age-from-two-letter-serial-number/ .

Look on the front of your sewing machine and locate the model number of the machine. Go to http://www.singerco.com/support/replacement-parts-chart and locate your model number. (Use the drop down menu and locate the group. Press Go and then find the pdf with the correct model parts list.) You can look up the exact part number and order them from the Singer Service Center online.

Alternatively, you may be able to find them at any Singer Authorized retailer. Just look at your machine and determine the type of shank that connects foot to the machine. (High Shank and Slant are common Singer foot designs on older machines.) Get a zigzag foot for Singer machines with that design. (If they don't have that, you can probably get a current foot and an adapter. We got an overedge foot and the high slant foot adapter for my Singer sewing machine (purchased in 1969) in the 1980s.)

I hope this helps.

Hi, I have a silly question. How on earth do I thread my Brother Xr-65 sewing machine?!! I have misplaced the users manual during my recent move. It seems to take thread a little differently than my...


The XR-65 and the XR-65T are the same except that the T indicates the sewing machine was sold with the Quilting Table and some accessories for quilting.

To thread the sewing machine, first lift the presser foot and use the handwheel to raise the needle to its highest position. The thread take up lever should be at its highest point. Place the spool of thread on the horizontal pin secured with the appropriate cap. Make sure that the thread comes off the spool from the bottom front, (Also check that the catch (for holding the thread when not in use) on the spool is at the back of the pin.) Then bring the thread to the thread guide at the back of the machine then down past the reverse lever and back up the the thread take up lever. Wrap the thread around the take up lever so that it slides into the slot and then goes through the hole in the take up lever from right to left. Bring the thread down again and place it behind the guide above the needle. Then thread the needle from front to back.

Brother has the manual available for download: http://welcome.solutions.brother.com/BSC/public/files/dlf/doch000061/xr52c65txl64526562ug01enesfr.pdf . See page 31 (43 of the PDF) for the pictures of the upper thread path.

I hope this helps.

The tension of the thread on top and bottom is not equal. How do you adjust the bottom thread to make it equal to the top?


Hello

First locate the sewing machine tension gauge. Sometimes its called a knob or a button or found on your Touch Screen if you have a computerized machine. Refer to your manual if you can't find it.

Either your needle thread is too tight or your bobbin thread is too loose.

First check that your bobbin thread hasn't slipped out of its tension spring in the bobbin case.

If the bobbin thread is correctly threaded through the tension spring, then decrease your needle tension by 1 number. Test by stitching several inches on your small quilt sandwich. Keep decreasing the tension until no needle thread is visible on the quilt top.

If sewing machine tension problems occur during the middle of a quilting session, again, first refer to the checklist above. Once you're satisfied that your sewing machine is threaded properly and your needle is not the culprit, then adjust the tension as outlined above.

If you have just started testing your quilting thread choices and you are using different threads for the needle and bobbin, you will in all probability make adjustments to your tension.

Make a small quilt sandwich from the materials used in your quilt to make this sandwich. It doesn't have to be pretty or even pin basted. It should be just big enough to test some of the stitching you plan to do on your quilt.

Hi I have been lucky to have been given a Huskystar 224 which I am delighted with but the person who had it before me has lost the Overcast foot. Zipper foot. Blind hem foot. Transparent...


Oh yeah, the overcast, zipper, blind hem, and button foot are widely available - as are lots of other fun feet (such as rolled hemmers, roller, teflon, fringe, pintuck, cording, pearls/piping, felling, flower stitching, walking, freemotion quilting, you name it.) You just need to look for low shank attachments - that's what the 224 takes. Congrats on lucking out with such an amazing machine! As for the automatic buttonhole foot, I did see one on Amazon (search 'low shank buttonhole foot") that would probably work, but haven't tried that one so I don't know for sure. Happy sewing. :)
