Question

I'm told I need a free-motion foot to make a quilt

I do not know what a free motion foot is or whether the machine already has one. I have been using this machine for a few months now and love it but would like to try a quilt.

Whatever foot you get is NOT going to stay attached. This machine has a serious design flaw in that the pressure foot pops off.

Hi Knitalife: Katie B. here with SINGER. A darning & embroidery foot will do what you need to make a quilt. You'll want to use the darning plate that comes with this machine in order to do free motion sewing for quilting. The darning & embroidery foot is an optional accessory that can be purchased separately elsewhere.

I've been quilting with it and use a Singer walking foot. It does well without the foot but the walking foot is better.

I have tried this machine on a variety of fabrics and weights, including fabric over a heavy interfacing. It worked very well. I can't guarantee leather or denim with a size 12 needle but if you use a heavy duty needle I don't see any reason why it should give you any trouble

The number 4 is the largest stitch and you turn the dial clockwise to get there. You turn the dial counter clockwise to get the stitch smaller.

The stitch length dial may be turned either way depending on your desired stitch length.

I doubt it, maybe depends on how thick your fabric is.... mine didn't do well with thick fabric.

If you're going to try, do so with caution. good luck

answer 2
I wouldn't recommend quilting with this particular machine. It has difficulty handling thick material, and has issues with the bobbin thread tension on bigger projects. I recommend this machine only be used for those small repair type projects.

Question

Automatic bobbin winder is pushed to right but my machine does not disengage... why?

I just received the Singer Simple 23-Stitch Sewing Machine 2263. My first time out winding the bobbin, I followed the instructions exactly. But when the automatic bobbin winder is pushed to the right, the machine does NOT disengage, which caused me a bent needle that had to be replaced before I even stitched a single stitch! Is this a user malfunction? if so, what am I doing wrong? or a machine malfunction?

You should make sure the bobbin winder is pushed completely to the right. If the bobbin did not start winding then the bobbin was not engaged correctly.

Nope it doesn't. I had nothing but problems with this machine and returned it for the Brother CE5500PRW. I know there is a little price difference there, but it is well worth it!

Yes there is a handle and is very light weight. However, I still recomend purchasing a sewing maching case (not cabinet) to protect the body during transport.

Question

Stitching speed

Is this one of those machines that goes 0 to 100 and would be very difficult for a 7 year old to maintain a slow speed? I would like the Singer name but Michly has a slow/fast speed so might be better for a young child.

This is a slow machine compared to alot out there. However, the bobbin is difficult to thread. It is not a drop in like Brother sewing machines have. Also the tread winder sits on its side, and just makes it difficult to tell if the thread is coming out the right way. Not often do I dislike a product as much as I disliked this. I returned it and purchased a Brother

answer 1
to make the auto threader work properly you must always have the needle exactly in the right position or it will not thread. It is very tricky, but make sure the wheel on the right is perfectly lined up in the same position as when you are threading the machine

I was having the same problem.
*first make sure that the little line on the big side knob is lined up with the mark on the machine.Then make sure the clear plastic thingy next to the sewing machine's needle is switched down.Now push the clear platstic thingy all the way down (gently) and then it should work fine.I tried doing it slow but it seems to thread the first time when i do a quick press on it.Its tricky at first but just make sure the side knob is lined up, thats whats most important
