SOURCE: Is this machine a high or low shank?

High Shank Machines are all the Janome Embroidery models MC 8000, MC 9000, 10000, 10001, 11000, 200E, 300E, 350E....etc
If yours is not an embroidery machine, it has a LOW SHANK .....the higher shank allows for easier access for the embroidery hoop.

How do you sew over a thick seam on a pair of jeans


You didn't mention your model, but there is a small jig you can buy that will lift up the presser foot to ride over the seam. It's called a "Jean-a-ma-jig," by Dritz, and It only costs around $5.00. You can probably find it at a local fabric store, or you can get it from eBay or Amazon.

I would like to know which foot attachment you use on stretch fabric


You would normally use your standard sewing foot, or usually called your "zig-zag foot" for sewing on stretch fabric, just as you would woven fabric. Or, you can buy a "walking foot" sometimes called an "even feed" foot that will help the top and bottom layers to feed more evenly together. If your model has an adjustable presser foot tension, (adjusts the "drop" strength of your foot that you will feel when you raise and lower the presser foot lever) you may want to decrease it some, and test a scrap to see how well it feeds the particular fabric you want to use.
You can also use an "over-edge foot" with certain utility stitches to give a 1/4 inch seam that looks similar to a serged seam.
You may want to find a book (I like to borrow them from my library) that shows various sewing machine feet and what they can be used for.
Don't forget to use ball point sewing machine needles for stretch fabrics. Good luck with your project!

My needle breaks 2 in a row


Don't pull your fabric as you seam as this is a sure fire way to break needles.

Also, make sure you have got the right foot on it for the stitch sequence it is sewing. For example, don't use a foot with a little hole in it when doing a zig zag as the needle will strike the foot. The general purpose clear plastic foot is usually a good one for most stitching.

If you are trying to sew something pretty heavy then this can cause breakages too as the machine may struggle to pierce through 6 layers of denim when you cross another seam. For example, hemming jeans, when you stitch over the side seams, your machine is trying to pierce probably 7 layers, the leg, plus the felled seam turned twice. It will struggle. You can help it by using a "Jeans-a-jig" a little plastic device you hold in front to get the foot up over the lump and give it grip. But take it really slow and sew one stitch at a time.

My CS6000i is freezing on sewing over seams and creating a terrible loud sound refusing to sew. it does not give an error message and once stopped it will be like it never happened, however I have to...


At Joann Fabrics you can buy a notion called a Jean a ma jig, it is something that you put under the rear of the presser foot so that the presser foot stays level and will go over the seam easily. Make sure if you use heavier fabric or are sewing on denim use a #14 or #16 needle so that it won't break. Good luck

How to use a zipper foot please? I have lost instructions and have no idea which is the zipper foot or how to use it can you help please.


  1. Step 1 To prepare the fabric for a centered zipper application, use the standard presser foot to baste the opening of the fabric shut using 5/8 inch seam allowance. Press the seam allowance open. Place the zipper teeth side down on the seam allowance and pin the zipper to the seam allowance only.
  2. Step 2 Release the standard presser foot from your machine. There may be a button or lever behind the foot that you need to press. Put the standard foot in its holder or someplace where it won’t get lost.
  3. Step 3 Decide which side of the machine you want to attach the zipper foot to. Zipper feet are asymmetrical, with one side that’s wider than the other. You’ll want to put the narrow side toward the zipper teeth, and the wider side away from the zipper teeth.
  4. Step 4 Attach the zipper foot to the sewing machine. You may need to line up the bar on the zipper foot with the presser foot holder, then lower the presser foot by lowering the lever. Raise the presser foot and make sure the zipper foot is securely attached.
  5. Step 5 Place the prepared fabric with the pinned zipper in the sewing machine. Lower the needle into the zipper tape and the seam allowance only, then lower the zipper foot. Stitch the zipper tape to the seam allowance. To sew the other side of the zipper to the seam allowance, remove the zipper foot from the sewing machine and install it on the other side of the presser foot holder.
  6. Step 6 Topstitch the outside of the fabric to each side of the zipper tape, making sure that the zipper foot is on the appropriate side of the machine for each side. Remove the basting with a seam ripper.
