Question about Brother CS6000i Computerized Sewing Machine

1 Answer

Stitches I just purchased this machine and the manual says Always use walking foot for quilting - in the chart it says No to the walking foot for hand-look quilting ? I am having trouble using the quilting stitches because I don't understand the above and I see no difference in the stitches if I use the Walking Foot or the J foot. Help! Carrie

Usually a walking foot is for straight forward stitching only.It keeps the many layers from shifting for you. The "hand-look" quilting takes a couple stitches forward then one back. If you look close, you will see about every other stitch is thicker and stands out more.

I am using the walking foot for a quilting project that I am working on, however, the bottom stitching is just looping and can just be pulled away from the fabric.


Be sure you are using a brand new needle.

Remove the thread from the machine.

ALWAYS RAISE THE PRESSER FOOT and rethread the upper thread from the beginning. Make sure the thread path is correct.

Verify the bobbin is installed and turning the correct direction in the bobbin case and that the bobbin thread is threaded through the bobbin tension mechanism.

Set the upper tension to the midway point between high & low number--this may require some adjustment for your particular machine.

Pull the bobbin thread to the top of your sewing project before beginning to stitch.
How and Why to Bring up the Bobbin Thread

Re-test your machine on a scrap quilt sandwich (make sure the walking foot is installed correctly and that the presser foot is lowered when beginning to stitch).

Consult the owner's manual for instructions for presser foot pressure. The pressure may need to be adjusted because you are dealing with a sandwich that is thicker than regular fabric.

You may also try changing the type and size sewing machine needle you are using. Using a Top Stitch or Microtext needle will help the needle to penetrate the fabric sandwich easier. A Top Stitch needle has a larger groove to protect the thread as it pierces the fabric which helps prevent looping.

Also, verify the thread is not too small for the needle's eye.

HV sapphire 930 not feeding properly


When stitching together a quilt sandwich, it is recommended to use a walking foot on your machine. The walking foot moves the upper fabric in conjunction with the feed dogs. Sometimes, if the quilt sandwich is not too thick, a roller foot can also help but may not be sufficient for a quilt sandwich.

How To Use Walking Foot
How to Use Roller Foot

You may also check the presser foot pressure on your machine. This regulates the amount of pressure the presser foot applies to the fabric and the feed dogs. If the pressure is too strong, it will tend to push the upper layers of fabric, creating a bubble look. If the pressure is too loose, there is not enough pressure for the feed dogs to physically pull entire quilt sandwich under the presser foot.
(The pressure is adjustable depending on the types of fabric and thicknesses being sewn.)

My Aurora 440 is not feeding my quilted fabric through when stitching?


You probably need to adjust the presser foot pressure (see your owner's manual) and install a walking foot.

Machine well not work with the quilting foot what can I do


Basic Tips for All
  1. Always turn the handwheel TOWARDS you (counter clockwise) as turning it in the opposite direction (away from you, clockwise) may knock the timing out requiring repair from a service center.
  2. Always be sure your presser foot is in the DOWN position before sewing. Sewing with the presser foot in the up position will cause your thread to tangle and your bobbin to jam.
  3. Change needles regularly (after 16 hours of use) as dull/weak needles can cause damage to your machine and fabric. Only use SINGER needles on your SINGER sewing machine.
  4. Always be sure you are using the correct bobbin for your machine. Class 66, Class 15 and Class 15J bobbins look very similar. However, using the incorrect bobbin class in your machine can cause damage.

Why do stitches bunch when using walking foot on 3 layers of quilting fabric?


make sure that the thread tensions are correct for the thickness of material
remember that only the bottom foot walks and draws the material through so it may need a help and be pulled as it sews.
I find that women in sewing shops just love to talk about problems and how they can help so find a shop and discuss any problems with them

I am using my walking foot to stitch in the ditch my quilt. The foot is not pulling my fabric through consistently.


The quilted fabric may be too thick for the walking foot to move along smoothly. Try using a zipper foot which is much slimmer and can get close to the line of stitching.

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.
tally_girl_73.jpg Having a quarter inch foot is very handy to achieve perfect 1/4" seams for piecing.tally_girl_74.jpg
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.

I have just started learning how to quilt and I was told I needed a walking foot to quilt the sandwich together. I purchased one today, but I don't even know how to attach the foot. I also need to...


The foot is attached as normal, but when you're attaching it, the fork-shaped part that sticks out of the right-hand-side has to be hooked around the round pillar sticking out horizontally from the right-hand-side of the needle bar and that holds the needle securing screw. When the foot is down, you will see that the upwards motion of the needle bar raises the upper set of feed dogs on the walking foot - the whole purpose of the walking foot is to provide, effectively, a set of feed dogs on the top of the material as well as the toothed ones below the stitch plate - this allows multilayered or thick materials to be sewn as when doing quilting.
