Janome 8900

  1. Janome 8900

    I just got a Janome 8900 and while I love it I'm getting frustrated. When I do the decorative stitches sometimes it pulls my material down into the needle hole. Am I doing something wrong? Thanks,

    Have you tried using a wash-away stabilizer under the fabric. Your fabric needs to be very stable to create nice decorative stitches.

    I haven't tried a stabilizer but I will now. Thank you for your Suggestion.

    Let us know how you make out. It will help others that may be experiencing the same difficulty. I know it is a pain in the butt but it sure creates less aggravation in the long run.

    in a pinch you can even use typing paper to stabilize

    I wouldn't suggest this as removing it may distort the stitch and you will be left with bits of paper in the stitches.

    Ah, when removing any stabilizer, be sure to support the stitches with your fingers/finger nails-never just rip the stabilizer off!

    I have used tissue paper and that removes easily, I do not think I would use typing paper, way too stiff and thick.

    Mom, you are correct about using tissue, and any residue will disappear upon laundering. But I would never use typing paper under any circumstances.

    If the problem persists, it may be necessary to use strips of a firm wash away stabilizer. So much depends upon the fabric and and the chosen stitch. A test run is a good idea.

    I would look for water soluble stabilizer, it might be kinder to your stitches. Following, I think I'm going to be buying an MC 8900 soon
