Janome 4120 Question

calverttxApril 28, 2012

I want to use one of the machine stiches to quilt in a 7/8" wide sash. Do I have to repeat it severaL times the length or is there a way to program the machine. If I have to repeat how do you line it up or maybe this is a bad idea.

I appreciated any and all help.

If you can move the needle on your machine, you can try adjusting that way. On scrap fabric, practice where your needle is and where your raw edges line up on the machine. You can measure from your stitching line to the raw edges and make adjustments as necessary.

If you can't move your needle, you should have markings on the bed of your machine. Find the right marking and place the raw edges of your fabric along that mark while you sew. You can always do a test run here and double check the measurement before doing your project.

Does you Janome have a Memory where you can program your stitches? If you do all you have to do is program the pattern of stitches you wish to use and stitch. That is how mine works.

I have tried that. It seems to make the stiches longer and I need them wider. I just bought the machine on Friday and am trying to figure it out. The part I want to do is the inside border of a baby quilt. It is about 7/8" wide and 30" long. Since my old machined sewed only, this is a great experience BUT!!!!!!

Thank both of you for your help. I am determinrd to master machine quilting.
