I've borrowed a memorycraft 300e from a friend. I've used it without incident for a few days but suddenly without any issues now whenever I turn the machine on I get an error message that says to "raise the presser foot and needle bar warning 01" and to turn off the machine and turn back on. Even if the presser foot and needle bar ARE already up. any suggestions?

Did you check the needle down button. Be honest and return it. Price one and wonder why you borrowed something so expensive. She may know what to do. But dont tinker or try to fix it. It seems like a fixable error. You probably afraid to tell her. But you stressing yourself out. If you borrow it you probably know a cheap embroidery machine is about $500. Just get it back and maybe she won't snap its probably something simple.

First, I would make sure the embroidery unit is unplugged if you r trying to sew and check the bobbin winder to make sure it is off. Also look for thread in the guide, these machines are very sensitive and when the slightest bit of thread gets caught in the tension of the threading format, the computer will automatically turn on error message.

Won't sew! Loads of top thread bundles up around bobbin casing.


First... make sure you are threading it correctly. It MUST be threaded with the foot up.

Do a test seam. Make sure you put the presser foot DOWN when you sew.

Make sure you grasp and hold the bobbin and top threads as you begin the seam. (this is good practice for any seamstress on any machine.

If you still get loops, tighten top tension.

Also check the bobbin case for burrs. drag a finger nail along edges to feel for it catching. If you find one take a small bit of extra fine sand paper and file it off.

Good luck

I have a Pfaff 418 and suddenly the bottom thread keeps snapping after about 5cm. I've altered the tesion & the timing and it's still happening. Any ideas??


try changing the needle
try rethreading the machine
clean under the needle plate & in the bobbin area for lint or threads
if these suggestions don't help, then the machine needs to be checked
to see what wrong with it

I just bought a Janome 9700 and I was wondering what kind of needles work best. I have hear that the Organ Titanium are really good. What are your thoughts? Thanks!


I've been sewing for over 30 years, I used organ needle before, but not the organ titanium, you said you just bought the machine, did it come with a instruction manual? if it did then it should tell which needle to use.
I have 2 necchi sewing machine & one babylock serger & I use SCHMETZ universal needle on all my machine, I never had any problems sewing with them, I make clothes & quilts & even upholstery some.
happy sewing

My footup and footdown button is stuck and I keep getting an E1 error on the screen. Do I need to take it in for repair or is there something I can do to fix it? Machine will not sew because of the error...


Turn the machine off first and unplug.

If you've got a manual, look up the page for trouble shooting, this error message may be listed iwth a solution. I'd also suggest that you remove and clean out the bobbin holder. This is the little black piece you put the bobbin into. It has possibly dislodged if you've had a jam up. You will need to unscrew the two screws holding the needle plate down, take out the needle and pressure foot to give yourself some room too. Put the bobbin holder back into position lining up the red markings on the holder and the stopper, your manual should show images of this.

Once its all back together, turn on and hopefully it will reset to normal mode.
If you've done all this and the error message won't stop showing, then yes, you'll need to take it in for a service.

I have a Janome Memorycraft 300E I have scanned a logo onto a memory card but I can't get the machine to accept the card is there a book I can get to help me with the programming many thanks. Wendy caple


Cannot just scan into machine. Need to digitize any image before you can sew it. Need digitizer, customizer or pay someone to digitize it and then put on card.
