101  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: Stretch fabric getting sucked into the feed dogs - help! on: October 30, 2009 07:54:44 PM
I have managed to stop it from getting thread wads and being caught in general. Now its just skipping stiches occasionally. My local Janome dealer is ordering me the manual so hopefully that will give me more of a clue on the correct settings! Thanks for the help Sew-Classic.

Sorry I should have given more details... I'm basically using a test piece of fabric before I sew the real thing so I was starting with a straight stitch, then I was going to zig zag and I plan on using both of those stitches in the garment. I was using universal needle - it did say on the packet suitable for knitted and stretch fabric to be precise its 130R/705H size 11. I put a new one in.

My machine is a Janome Mystyle 28. I am getting thread wads on the underside of the fabric. In general before the getting caught in there and when the feed dogs are up they catch on the material a little. I threaded the machine the way I usually thread it and it wasnt a problem for cotton fabric so Im a little confused but I suppose I could be threading the bobbin wrong and I will look into that.

Thanks for the link... I have been googling and searching this forum for hours trying to find a solution, maybe I was using the wrong words or the wrong google! Damn google australia!

Hey, so this is my first attempt at sewing with a stretchy fabric (and I'm new to sewing) and it keeps getting sucked in and caught into the feed dogs. I made sure the foot pressure was on the lightest setting but other than that Im not sure what else I'm suppose to do... The machine used to be my mum's and I don't have the manual or alternative feed dogs - I do however have a trusty screwdriver that I have to keep using!!
