Download a free copy of your manual at www.brother-usa.com under customer support for home sewing and embroidery. It will tell you everything, their manuals are excellent. I downloaded mine and saved it, I love that I can enlarge the diagrams to see better for threading and everything. You should have an extra needle in your accessory bag, but I think that they are standard Schmetz 130/730 needles anyway. Look in your manual, Hope I brightened your day. Happy New Year to you.

I need instuctions on using different presser foot for ja nome schoolmate


Please add a comment with the specific model of Janome Schoolmate sewing machine.

Fpr the Janome Schoolmate S-3015, make sure that the needle is fully up and raise the presser foot. Then press the red button on the back of the presser foot holder to have that foot drop off. Set the pressure dial to 3 before attaching the new presser foot. For snap-on feet, align the pin of the presser foot (the horizontal bar in the middle of the foot) under the presser foot holder. Lower the presser foot holder (using the presser foot height lever) until it locks onto the foot.

For the zipper foot, you need to fit the rear pin on the foot into groove at the back of the presser foot holder. Then lower the presser foot holder onto the zipper foot.

These are shown on page 11 (14 of the PDF) of the manual. You can download the manual here: http://janome.com/en/machines/sewing/schoolmate-s-3015/ . The direct link to the manual is http://janome.com/siteassets/support/manuals/school-models/schoolmate3015.pdf .

For the S-7330, you need to again raise the needle and the presser foot. Press the lever towards (it moves slightly up, not down) the presser foot holder. Then line up the pin on the foot under the presser foot holder and lower the presser foot holder onto the foot so that it locks. This is also in that sewing machine's manual, here: http://janome.com/siteassets/support/manuals/school-models/inst-book-s-7330esf.pdf . See page 14 (18 of the PDF).

I hope this helps.

Presser foot stuck in down position


There could be a piece of the needle stuck in the bobbin area, try sliding the base plate off [not easy with the foot down i know] and see if you can clean it out.

Hyundai 8 stitch sewing machine confused beginner!?????


Not familiar with your machine, but an important suggestion for all sewing machines:

ALWAYS RAISE the presser foot when threading the top thread. If you did not do this, remove the top thread completely from the machine and start over by RAISING the presser foot and following the thread path. (Do NOT miss any thread guides or thread any out of order!)

Lower the presser foot and thread the needle. (The top thread will pull through the needle ONLY if the presser foot is raised!) RAISE the presser foot and pull at least 5 inches of thread through the needle. Insert your fabric. Lower the presser foot. Hold the thread tail gently in your left hand and with the right hand manually turn the handwheel one rotation. The needle should pull the bobbin thread up through the fabric.

While still holding the top thread tail, "sweep" under the presser foot with a stiletto, scissors, a nail file (anything that will fit under the presser foot) to pull the remaining bobbin thread tail above the fabric. Grab both thread tails and pull them under the presser foot toward the back of the machine. Now, you are ready to take your first stitch.

You can gently hold those thread tails while you slowly power the machine to take the first couple of stitches on your fabric.

Threading a needle


1. Turn handwheel toward you 2. Raise presser foot up 3. Pull thread from spool and pull taut under each tension disk. It's important to "feel" the "click" if you are new to threading machine 4.Make sure after all tension disks threaded that you put thread behind the slot in back of your needle. It's a little groove to hold thread securely. 5. Pull thread toward you 6. Thread needle eye front to back 7. Pick up thread under gently pull taut in front of you 8. Lower presser foot and turn handwheel toward you. A loop will form under the needle where needle thread has picked up the bobbin thread. Carefully take both threads that have made a single loop and pull toward you 9. Put threads under presser foot just lift put threads under and pull 5 -6 inches thread BACK and UNDER that presser foot Done! Hope this helps, my friend! Jimmy

I have a Singer 327K that stitches three or four good stitches and then stops completely stitching


it's very possible that when the needle broke the machine went out of time & would have to be retimed at a sewing machine shop

Needle does not align with the hole and presser foot


Sounds like a bend needle, try a new one, or else your needle plate and foot is for straight stich, put the machine in center needle postion, and reduce the zig zag to 0 or none.

Good luck and happy sewing, please rate my solution

My stiches are loopy I think I need to change the settings but don't know how to set them


I think that you will find that it is your top threading or your needle. Put a new needle in with the flat side facing the rear of the machine, now totally rethread, according to your manual, with the presser foot up. When you have done that, leave the presser foot up, now pull the thread, it should feed smoothly, then put the presser foot down, pull the thread , now it should barely move. This usually seats the thread in the tension discs. If you do not have a manual, go to www.singerco.com and download a free one under customer support. They also have great tips under customer support, frequently asked questions. Good luck

My knob that lifts my needle up and down won't turn and I'm afraid to force it there is no thread tangled up in it.


One thing I would try is, take a screw driver (short stubby straight) and open the throat plate under the presser foot, you may be surprised that a lot of lint is there, resembling a piece of felt, sort of, that should not be there. Clean it out and lube your machine as per your manual. Change your needle and rethread. Another thought is that the belt for your machine is disengaged, then you have to take the cover off and check that. Good luck to you, I hope that I helped. Happy New Year

check to see if the presser foot is loose
check to see if the needle is in backwards

I have problems with not be able to pick up the thread from the bobbin to start sewing


Make sure the needle is not bent and is installed with the flat side of the needle shaft to the back of the machine.

Thread the machine with the presser foot up, with the thread going into the needle from the front ,

Check the manual to be sure you have the bobbin inserted correctly into the bobbin case and the thread is feeding in the proper direction and through the guides on the bobbin case.

Hold onto the end of the top thread at the needle and hand walk the needle down and back up. This should bring the bobbin thread up. Take both thread ends under the presser foot and to the back of the machine.

Place a folded scrap of fabric under the presser foot, lower the presser foot and hand walk the needle down into the fabric and then use the power pedal to start sewing.
