Question about Kenmore 15218 Mechanical Sewing Machine

Monogramming I just bought a new machine that I was lead to believe could monogram by the product description. Actually it comes with a monogram foot and according to Brother I have to monogram manually! Any guidance or tips on how to begin?

    The machine is the Project Runway Limited Edition. Your post was helpful to me - I'm going to practice and see what I can come up with. Thanks for the tips.

Hi there!

Bit of a con eh?

Is it the Innov-is 700E ? as featured here?
http://www.brothersew.co.uk/brother-innov-is-700e-embroidery-machine-193.html

Most machines can embroider.
The foot advance claw need to be disengaged, then a frame is needed to hold the material flat.
Select a zig-zag stitch, mark out your pattern and away you go!

Basically filling in your marked design with zig-zag stitch.

If it is the computerised version - ask the store for a demonstration.

Hope this helps, If so , rate as fixya!
if not - ask and I'll do the best I can.

Thanks for using Fixya! (I don't get paid for this you know. I just like helping folk)

Can this to freehand machine embroidery?


If you can drop the feed dogs (or have a plate to cover the feed dogs), the machine has a zig-zag stitch, and you have a darning foot or free motion foot, you can do free motion quilting, hand manipulated embroidery (monograms), and applique on a basic sewing machine. It will take some testing and quite a bit of practice. You can also use an embroidery foot to monogram and applique. You will want to sink the needle into the fabric at every corner and frequently when creating curves so you can move the fabric.

Search the internet for instructions & tutorials on how to set up your machine and the best way to accomplish what you want.

How do I set the stitch length and width. Have been doing as the manual said and doesn`t seem to work.


Sometimes you also need to change the foot as well for monogramming. Do check this in the manual.

When I am monogramming with my Elna 8600, the thread continually breaks, what could be the problem?


The top thread breaks
1. the needle thread is not threaded properly
2. The needle thread tension is to tight
3. The needle is bent or blunt
4. The needle is incorrectly inserted
5. The needle thread & the bobbin thread are not set under the presser foot when starting to sew
6. the threads were not drawn to the rear after sewing
7. The thread is either to heavy or to fine for the needle
8. Try a different spool or cone of thread

How do I activate my dongle for 4D Monogramming and Vision software when it is not working?


There should be a code in the software booklet that makes the program read your dongle.

How do I activate my dongle for 4D Monogramming and Vision software when it tells me that I can't?


I don't have 4D, so this is a guess, but I do use a lot of different embroidery design software programs. That message sounds like possibly the software has not been installed. If you're positive all was completely installed, It might be a good idea to call 4D support for their advice. If you are installing on a new computer be sure the software is compatible with your operating system. You might need to uninstall and reinstall and if so this PDF for 4D Installation Instructions might help: http://www.learn4d.com/media/How$20to$20install$204D$20Monogram$20and$20Vision.pdf

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.)

I I my brand new brother xr-7700 manual says to look on page 49 -50 for monograming but NOTHING THERE


I think that you will find that monogramming is done free style, we used to lower the feed dog and put our piece to be monogrammed into an embroidery hoop then use a satin stitches and sew whatever we wanted. You can call Brother. I downloaded your manual (after looking at your manual) I see what you mean

The instruction book is fine, I am wondering what stitch length you have selected . I think, maybe you should call Singer at 1-800-4singer and talk to Customer service. I looked at your manual, and why would you have purchased a side cutter foot for this machine? Where did you buy it, have them teach you how it works. If you bought from a dealer, like Joann's fabric they give lessons for free on the machines that are purchased from them. And their prices are very competitive.
