The main thing to know if it is a low shank or high shank machine. More than likely it is a low shank, so it will be easy to get a darning presser foot. Your machine will either be one that the feed dogs drop down or you will have a plate to cover the feed dogs because the feed dogs are not used for darning. Now the next thing, get an embroidery hoop to hold the article that you are going to darn, also some stabilizer material (tear away is great or use gift tissue paper) and you free style sew the holes. I think that you should look at your book to confirm what model you have. Amazon sells a darning foot for $12.99 or maybe a local shop can sell you a universal one that fits Singer etc. Try a JoAnn Fabrics and take your machine with you to be sure that it fits, if Sears is closer try them.

I don't know how to use the darning on my bernina 950. Can you advise


You need to use a darning presser foot--there are several designs of darning feet made by Bernina or generic brands (be sure the generic model has the appropriate attachment for your particular Bernina). You can find metal or plastic, clear or solid foot, open or closed toe, spring-loaded hopper or not, etc. Drop the feed dogs. If it is thinner fabric (lighter weight than denim), it sometimes helps to put the fabric in an embroidery hoop (upside down with the fabric next to the needle plate). If the hole is small, you can use the little hoop that should have been included in your Bernina accessory kit. Then you manually move the fabric back & forth, up & down under the presser foot while stitching.

How do I set up my Janome 1600p-qc for free motion quilting?


You will need a darning foot or free motion quilting foot for your machine (these feet are shorter than the regular feet which allows space between the foot and the needle plate to manually manipulate your fabric). Then drop the feed dogs and, if your machine does not have that capability, there should be a cover plate included with your machine that snaps over the feed dogs. Install a brand new needle in your machine, set it for a straight stitch, and test the stitch. Sometimes, the upper tension needs to be loosened a bit so the bobbin thread does not poke through the top of the fabric.

Then...practice, practice, practice...

FWIW, I've found it helpful to use a "Supreme Slider" on the base of my machine. It is slick and allows the fabric to move easily. Special gloves are helpful too because your hand will become dry and begin to slip on the fabric. Using cheap rubber gardening gloves works for some people.

Bobbin thread will not catch unless the foot is down?


Ashleigh--Your machine will work satisfactorily ONLY if the presser foot is down. When the presser foot is up, the tension disk is released, therefore, no tension = a big knot of thread.

To free motion quilt, you should drop the feed dogs. Install a darning foot (this foot is shorter in length so when it is lowered, there is a space between the presser foot and needle plate). The space allows the fabric to be moved easily while stitching.

Some sewists will free motion quilt without a presser foot (if they don't have a darning foot), but that is very dangerous as one can easily sew through a finger. However, even when sewing without a presser foot, the presser foot mechanism needs to be lowered in order to properly form stitches.

No knob to adjust presser foot pressure. Space between feed dogs & presser foot is too tight to pull a piece of fabric out with foot down. Diagonal seams get pushed out.


You should not be able to pull fabric from the machine when the presser foot is down. The presser foot should always be raised before removing the fabric.

Are you trying to darn or quilt something without the feed dogs activated? If so, there are special presser feet for that purpose that are shorter in height (ie darning foot) which allow more space between the presser foot and the stitch plate so the fabric can be moved freely.

I have an old EuroPro Sewing Machine and lost the user manual years ago.I am trying to figure which accessories to use for quilting. Can you tell which accessory and where it goes and other recommendations...


Try this website, it has lots of good info on feet and where you would use them. http://sewmamasew.com/blog2/2009/06/feet-feet-feet/ This should help you identify the feet youve got. Many machines will have a zig zag foot with room for the needle to swing, a zipper foot, a blind hem foot and a buttonhole foot as a basic selection. There are lots of others too for specialised techniques such as rolled hem, overcasting or tuffting.

For Quilting though you actually can get away with just a straight stitch foot to piece the fabric and a walking foot if you are going to machine stitch the layers and batting together. This is a walking foot.

Lastly, if you want to try stippling or free motion quilting, you'll need a special foot, and it will probably look a little like this.

How to use a darning foot


Remove yourcurrent presser foot from your sewing machine, and attach the darning foot asyou would any foot. Darning feet look different, depending on the manufacturer,but most will maintain a "C" or "O" shape using eithermetal or clear plastic at their bases.

 

Drop the feed dogs, or use a cover plate on your machine if feeddogs are not available. If this is not possible, adjust the stitch length ofyour machine to zero or as low as your machine will allow.

 

Slide your fabric or quilt sandwich into place below the darningfoot. Lower the lever of the darning foot, and hold onto the upper thread withone hand.

 

Take one complete stitch, and pull up the upper thread to bringthe bobbin thread to the surface. Take multiple stitches in the same place tosecure the threads.

Run the machine as you free-motion sew or quilt your fabric piece,using your fingers to move the fabric instead of the feed dogs, until yourstitching is complete. Replace the darning foot with your preferred presserfoot when finished.

I am trying free motion quilting on my europro 7500 but fabric does not move freely even though I have attached the plate to cover the feed dog and the darning foot. Can you help. Am I missing another step


It sounds like you are doing as you should.

If the darning foot is not "springy" enough and is holding down too firmly, you might look for a "hopping" foot.

I use the Supreme Slider and gloves to help me better move the quilt.
