What type of needle and where can I buy?


If you buy a "universal" needle at a sewing shop or even at the walmart, it should get you going.

What foot should i use for quilting. i have a brother vx-1435


Your best option will be a "walking" or "even feed" foot. Your Brother dealer should have them in stock.

Brother Innovis 1e isn't stitching properly when the feed dogs are down


Skipped stitches
1. The needle is not inserted correctly
Remove needle & reinsert needle( flat side towards the back of machine)
2. The needle is damaged
replace with new needle
3. The wrong size needle is being used
Choose a needle to suit the thread & fabric
4. The foot not attached correctly
Check & attach correctly
5. If the above suggestions don't help then the machine needs to be checked
For a timing problem.

Try a different needle, you may have to the wrong size and your machine is working to hard to overcome it, maybe overheating.

Uneven stitches while machine quilting.


Are you using the right size needle and thread? Also, check tension recommended by your manual. Let me know if that helps, because I can ask my sister who has that machine

What needle do I use with the Janome 1600P which I am using with the Super Quilter frame? I've had three different suggestions from 3 different quilting shops. Please help me. Leslie


The needle HLX5 is proper for the 1600P, if it is a 1600 PDB the the DB x K5Q1is the correct needle. Normally a size 14 or 16 is good for quilting.

Bobbin thread is getting all tangled up and not even stitching. It was stitching fine earlier. I have the foot on it that does the quilting. I am puzzled, I changed the bobbin, the needle,...


Check the needle to be sure it is installed with the flat side to the back of the machine.

Try sewing with general purpose thread to see if the machine is stitching as it should. Thread with the presser foot up.

If it is, then re-thread (presser foot up) with the nylon/clear thread. Tighten the tension as you test.

Skipped stitches & looping on the bottom of Quilt


Try a different needle. Use a quilting or topstitch or even a metallic needle - one that has a larger scarf than normal. The scarf is the groove at the back of the needle where the thread goes while the stitch is being formed. Quilting threads often need more "room" there. I have been told that the Inspira quilting needles are good because they have a thread groove on the front and the back of the needle. Not tried them personally but might be worthwhile for you to consider.

For the looping, you could fiddle with your tensions a little either loosening the bobbin tension or tightening the top, or both. Only ever do this in very small increments. But the good news is that even the "professional" quilters do not have perfect quilt backs - just have a look at them at quilt shows!
