I would so much love to have your thoughts. I took my Janome 9400 in to repair yesterday. Since I got the machine in March, it has been skipping stitches when I use the ruler foot and do ruler or free-motion quilting, particularly while moving fabric backwards. Repairman could find nothing wrong with it mechanically. He adjusted the tension on the blue dot bobbin case a little. He stitched FMQ and it did beautifully (he used the hopping/darning foot...no skipped stitches. Before leaving shop, I tested FMQ using the little QO foot and no skipped stitches at all. However, when I changed to Ruler settings and ruler foot, it skipped horribly. We had a group meeting, repairman, woman who owns the quilt shop and sews a lot, and myself. We came up blank with what could be causing the problem. I have done everything suggested previously...blue dot bobbin case; purple needle; Janome bobbins; red needles; lower ruler foot; glider sheet. Do you have any input, please.
