Question about Juki TL-98Q

Open Question

JUKI TL-98 Q...What is the perfect setting for maching quilting (not free motion, straight stitch-grid pattern, feed dogs up)? I have corrected the bobbin tension but want to know the "standard" setting for the pressure foot and upper tension dial. my top stitch looks like a straight line and the bottom stitch looks good. Keep playing with and can't get that perfect stitch. I have cleaned, oiled, and replaced the needle.

I think you might have better luck if you use 40 or 50 weight thread.

SOURCE: stopping at midstitch while free motion quilting.

did you try cleaning the drive area of the machine? you may have a lot of buildup of dust,thread,fabric, etc. that nay be interferring with the mechanical drive. You might have to remove the cover to get to the inside to clean. Use a small computer vac to clean up and a small dry paint brush to clean parts. Or get a professional cleaning.

SOURCE: Needle Thread breaking after about 30 seconds of 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.

SOURCE: Can't free motion quilt on Juki-T98QE

You need to be using a free motion foot or a darning foot, the regular presser foot is not for free motion.

I lowered the feed dogs on my Juki TL-2010Q to free motion quilt and they won't raise. I cleaned under the throat plate. Help?


Have you tried sewing with it since you "raised" the feed dogs? The feed dogs will not raise until you begin to stitch.

How do I set 8900 for free motion quilting? D4S mode and QB-S foot


To do free motion quilting on most machines, install a darning foot or free motion quilting foot, drop the feed dogs, set the machine to straight stitch. (Because FMQ requires you to manually maneuver the fabric, stitch length is moot.) If your machine has the feature, setting it to Needle Down will also help. When you stop sewing, the needle will stop while penetrating the fabric. This prevents you from accidentally moving the fabric while trying to adjust before sewing again.

How do i lower the feed dog for free motion sewing??


Oooh, consult your owner's manual. Frequently, industrial machines are limited in their capabilities so your machine may not have the feed dog lowering ability. Some other domestic machines without the capability can use a plate to cover the feed dogs while free motion quilting, but that probably wouldn't be a good thing to try if your machine is not made for sewing without the feed dogs in use.

While trying to free motion quilt on my juki TL-98Q, it becomes very hard to move the quilt whenever I come to a seam. I have already turned the pressure foot dial to the lightest setting. I simply


I have never used a machine to free motion quilt. That said, I have had issues sewing over thick seams. Since your machine runs smoothly otherwise... I think it is the thickness of the seamed area that is causing your problem. It may be too late but you could try trimming your seams so the layers fabric graduate to full thickness. Or you could use a chop stick or popcicle stick to press down on the thickness as you guide the machine over the seam. I also suggest that you Fan your seam allowances where your blocks come together. You can see how that is done here. http://www.allpeoplequilt.com/videos/v/62207505/machine-minute-bulky-intersections-fanning-seam-allowances.htm

Free motion, but can't find the cover fotr the feed dogd


Set the stitch length to 0, stitch selector to straight stitch. Find a thin piece of plastic or cardboard and punch a smooth hole in it for the needle to go through. Tape the plastic over the feed dogs with the hole aligned under the needle, and you should be good to go.
The fake credit cards that show up in junk mail are perfect for this.

How to set 2140 for free motion sewing


Which model are you using? Creative 4.5?, On the newer machines it drops automatically once the embroidery attachment is hooked up. On older Creatives v2.x there is a slide lever in front of the presser foot on the front.

Needle Thread breaking after about 30 seconds of quilting


Make sure the feed dogs are dropped (or feed dog cover is on - I can't remember which way this machine works). The stitch length on the machine has no function so ignore it. (I set it to zero so the machine doesn't have to work as hard). Hopefully this is all that's wrong. If not, use a shorter setting for the stitch length on the regulator, oil the hook and move slowly and smoothly.
Good luck!
