Quilting on Janome MC 4000

I want to quilt and have lost my user's manual. Is there a way to disengage the feed dog so that I can quilt without having to twist the whole quilt all over the place? Also, if this is possible, what presser foot should I use.

Thanks,

Cindy Davis

I have a MC4000 and a manual. To raise or drop the feed dog, remove the accessory box and feel at the back of the free arm there is a lever that will slide left or right to raise or lower the feed dog. I am not a quilter, but the manual says to use foot A (zigzag foot) and accessory L (quilter) which appears to be a guide. Cheers, Deb, Townsville, Australia

How do I drop the feed dogs for quilting on my Brother XL 4011 sewing machine


It should be included in the owner's manual. (An internet search did not turn up a manual for your machine, but a model close to your machine may operate very similarly.) You can also contact Brother Support.

This may help:

The other possibility is that the feed dogs on your model do not actually drop. There may be an accessory (darning plate) in your kit that covers the feed dogs during darning or free motion quilting. (Shown on page 38 of the following manual):

How do I lower the feed dogs foR free motion embroidery. I have a jANOME harmony 2039


Look on the back of the machine behind the bobbin area. See if there is a slide switch. If not, your manual will tell you how to drop the feed dogs. If you can't drop them, you may have gotten a neede plate that will cover the feed dogs so you can do free motion embroidery and quilting.

Manual for brother vx757 free please


A manual feed is used primarily in freehand embroidery, quilting, and shoe repair. With manual feed, the stitch length and direction is controlled entirely by the motion of the material being sewn. Frequently some form of hoop or stabilizing material is used with fabric to keep the material under proper tension and aid in moving it around. Most household machines can be set for manual feed by disengaging the drop feed dogs. Most industrial machines can not be used for manual feed without actually removing the feed dogs.

Feed Dogs on Janome 1600P


I recently purchased a Janome 1600P-DB and in order to do free motion quilting I had to cover the feed dogs with an index card. I also cut a small section out of the card to allow for the thread and needle to move freely. Standard tape was used.

Frame quilting with janome 1600 db


am I right that the feed dogs do not drop on this machine?

Yes, this is correct....but you have to change the needle plate to a thicker one, so the feed dogs will be below the needle plate.
