Question about Brother InnovIs QC1000 Electronic Sewing Machine

1 Answer

I am working on a small quilt. Using the walking foot. When I turned the quilt over to check the stitches on the back I noticed they are very loose. I have never had this problem before. The back stitches have always looked as nice as the front. What is going on?

Check that the thread is tight around the bobbin. Make sure that the bobbin is in the right way around - the bobbin thread should double back on itself coming out of the bobbin holder. The bobbin tension adjustment is the small screw in the plate on the bobbin case that the thread passes under as it comes off the bobbin and goes out.

When using the walking foot how does the guide work?


Yes, you would set the guide at the distance you want the next row to appear. Set the guide to follow the previous row and then stitch with the walking foot to create the new row.

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.
What is Walking Foot Sewing Tips for Beginners
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.)

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

Bernina walking foot


Hm, just guessing here.

Have you checked to make sure the walking foot (u-shaped) bar is still attached to the needle bar? Are the feed dogs still in the up position and operating like they should?

Learn How to Use Sewing Machine Walking Foot

Something else that I've run across in my sewing adventures is that walking feet need periodic oiling to keep them operating. Just manipulate the walking foot with your hands and watch where there are moving joints. Then apply a small drop of good quality sewing machine oil to each joint. Work it in and then wipe off the excess so it won't stain your fabric.

Stitches


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.
