On the backside of your free arm there is a small lever which can be moved to lower the feed dogs.
When you want them back up move the lever the other way.NOTE!!
They will not go up until the machine has made one revolution.

Feed dog switch is at the back of the machine, use your lt hand and feel down the back behind the foot, it should switch to the left and right and drop the feed dog ( this is what feeds the fabric throught the machine) it needs to be dropped to use embroidery mode

My janome memory 9000 squeaks when embroidering


If it squeaks when you are embroidering and not when you are sewing, it's the belts on the embroidery unit. From use, they can become glazed, slick and then they squeak.

If it squeaks when you are doing either, it's more than likely an internal lubrication of the machine that needs to be done by a trained technician.

Can a memory craft 9000 embroidery machine embroider hats?


I have seen some clever ways on you- tube to make unusual shapes fit into the hoop, using clips etc. You can also buy sticky stabliser so the hoop holds the items without it being in the hoop. I'm sure you can also get devices to help you embroider hats, but i'm not sure they will fit the 9000. try an internet search for more information and possible devices

My Janome memory craft 8000 will only sew backwards and the screen shows step motor error. the machine is 19 years old. Is this fixable?


step motor error may mean the embroidery arm is out of position gently push it back home towards the machine and see if this helps. If the mother board is gone, they will not be able to replace it as its so old, but you may be able to get an 8000 or 9000 on ebayso you can still use your discs if you don't want to get a new machine

Does this machine have a low shank --- or high shank?


High Shank Machines are all the Janome Embroidery models MC 8000, MC 9000, 10000, 10001, 11000, 200E, 300E, 350E....etc
If yours is not an embroidery machine, it has a LOW SHANK .....the higher shank allows for easier access for the embroidery hoop

I want to sell my 1991 New Home memory Craft 8000 sewing machine


A good place to see what machines are selling for is Ebay. That's where I sold a sewing machine and an embroidery machine.

It helps to know your product and machine embroidery lingo.

What are cassettes? Floppy disks? These make the machine borderline obsolete.

Memory cards are still around, but most EM now have USB connectivity or USB flash drives.

Satin thread? Embroidery machines use Rayon or Polyester embroidery thread.

Having had the machine recently serviced is also a plus.

Janome mermory craft 8000 drop feed dog


I hate to sound dismissive but: read the manual. Duh. It is not as written above: drop dog........
The feed dog is the toothed pieces in the sewing machine deck, under the needle, which move the material away from you when you push the operating pedal.
Dropping the dog - ie making it inoperative - (see manual for how to on your machine) means the material has to be propelled by hand under the needle. This is especially good for freehand machine embroidery as it means you can move the material in any direction whilst sewing.
It can be easier to freehand embroider if your material is fixed in to an embroidery hoop to hold it flat while you work.

New home 8000 memory craft embroidery machine


Locate a Janome dealer and have him order them for you. The power cord can be purchased from Radio Shack if the dealer doesn't have one.
