when I sew straight back and forth the machine sews well.When I sew side to side the stitch lengths are long, the bobbin thread is not catching.I just bought a stitch regulator, thinking that would help,but it doesn't.It has to be something I am doing wrong,because when I take the machine off the frame I have no problem.I'm very frusterated with it. Any help?
I am just getting used to this machine, i am using my walking foot to quilt my quilt, i am having trouble with the tension under the quilt(the bottom) The thread pulls out very easy underneath my quilt, what tension control do i use to correct this? thanks
I'm not an expert but it sounds like the needle top thread is too loose. I would try tightening the top tread first . The bobbin should just stand up and sit in the palm of your hand whilst gently pulling the thread up with your other hand . Here is a link to some helpful information. http://www.manualslib.com/manual/514811/Janome-1600p-Qc.html?page=32
I always try adjusting the top tension first though. If you do need to adjust the bobbin only adjust the screw in tiny increments. Cindy Needham has a great online craftsy class " Design it , Quilt it" and explains how to adjust bobbin tension which I found really helpful. Good luck with your quilting :-)
