Hoop Storage?

Nyssa Lanzafame
 

I have a vague recollection that Diane had posted a tutorial or the likes regarding how to make a bag to store and hang our hoops in.  I always thought i would get to it eventually, well it looks like i have found the opportunity!  But now i cannot find the post LOL!  i tried seaching here, and files, and on the website...have i lost my mind too?
If someone can point me in the right direction id be grateful thank you!

Check to make sure the thread is still in take up lever
Also reset bobbin case and check for any nicks on bobbin case

Hi Kelly,

First make sure you have the case seated properly. Then if you are sure that it is in there correctly, take it out and examine it closely to see if there are any nicks or scratches on it. Thread can get caught on those. Third, make sure you are using the correct type of bobbin, preferably made by Janome.

Rethread the machine making sure the thread is securely in the take up lever. Use only Janome bobbins and we when you insert the bobbin the thread is coming off the left side. The thread coming off the bobbin looks like  a P for pretty.

I recently had this problem and it turned out to be that the thread had come out of the take up lever.   I would say rethread completely double checking that the thread is indeed in the take up lever and try again.  Good luck!

Hi Everyone,

I hope you are all not going stir crazy due to the quarantine!  So, I have a MC 11000 that is newish to me. It has been serviced not that long ago, but started acting funny today by getting stuck right at the beginning of stitching; almost like I was "tacking".  Then the thread broke so I cleaned out the entire bobbin area which was pretty clean except a little thread was caught.  I put a new bobbin in and every time I try to pull up the thread from the bobbin, it is getting caught.  I don't know where to start my troubleshooting on this!  Any ideas?  Thank you!

Superior Threads doesn’t carry a line of Rayon threads. They have an article on their  website which explains why.

Mah_jongg----I think poly vs rayon thread is a personal preference. Rayon has a higher sheen, but it is not as strong as poly. Rayon also is sensitive to chlorine bleach (maybe non-chlorine bleach as well--I am not positive). It will turn a dull tan color in the presence of chlorine bleach. So, if making garments or household items that will possibly be bleached, I always choose polyester thread exclusively. I just completed a pair of pillowcases for a dear friend's birthday gift, and used only poly threads on the white pillowcases. Even if I reminded her at the time of giving them to her, I do not know what her laundry habits, or anyone else in her household would be. Better to be safe than sorry, so stick with poly for items that might be bleached. Don't forget, some laundry detergents already are "with bleach", so even if they don't add bleach to the load, it might automatically get bleach contained with the detergent.   For the higher sheen and delicate look for wall hangings, outer garments that will be dry-cleaned, pouches and other small accessories, you can probably be safe in choosing rayon.  By the way, my former embroidery machine was a Pfaff and I used both poly and rayon in it. It especially loved Coats and Clark POLY  embroidery thread, available at JoAnn, and a great buy with their frequent bargains. But my newer Janome 500e does not love the Coats and Clark brand. Just so you know my personal experience.  
Happy stitching!

Re: Now Hump Jumper

Kathy Strabel
 

Nancy---If you are having lots of trouble sewing over thick seams, you might try decreasing the downward pressure on the presser foot. Especially if you also are using the walking foot and having that trouble over thick seams. In addition to using the "hump jumper" or "height compensation tool" .  I was having a terrible time with the hook that holds the walking foot attached popping out of its slot when going over thick seams. But loosening the pre-set default pressure by 2 full clicks and using a hump jumper, that happens much less frequently. In fact, even when I am not going over thick seams, I change the default pressure down 2 clicks. The default setting is just too tight in my opinion. I use mostly quilting cottons, which are not all that bulky, but still I get better stitch quality with the lower pressure setting.  Hope that helps/

Re: Program the Cutter Pedal?

thank you soo much! this might save some time if i am only but seems like i can only use it if all the seams are the same lenght.  I am going to play with it! :)
 


Re: rayon vs poly thread for embroidering

I myself only use poly thread. I had a bad experience with rayon. I did a robe and
washed it and the rayon thread ran, so I don't use it.
Just my two cents.

Starting to like my 550e machine. Not as user friendly as my 10000 though, but the embroidery results are so much better. Anyway, was looking to get opinions on which thread is better to use. Rayon or poly thread. Google reviews are about 55/45. My sewing dealer says poly, plus its gaining in popularity.  Running low on thread and interested in knowing if I should order my needed colors in rayon or poly.

thanks,

Press the home button and press the sewing advisor, looks  like a t shirt, and select patchwork. You can choose the locking stitch or lock-a-magic. You can sew the same length seam without touching any buttons and change the length anytime. It will lock or reverse at the beginning and end and cut the thread.


Re: Program the Cutter Pedal?

Press the home button. Open the sewing advisor and select patchwork. You can select the lock-a-matic or locking stitch. It will lock the starting stitch and at the end of the seam press the reverse button and it will automatically cut.
Follow the directions on the screen. You can sew the same length without touching any buttons. You can change it anytime.
