I've been learning how to sew by hand (for the first time) this week! I was given a Brother JX2517 sewing machine as a present to also learn on but I'm currently a little stumped. I've never used one before so I'm not sure if this is even something possible.. but I noticed the needle is placed a little to the right of the guide on the foot: when I start sewing it always stitches to the right of the guide. Is it possible to adjust the needle placement?
Also I can't figure out how to adjustment the pressure foot to allow me to sew in a circular motion. My mom (who is an avid sewer) was a little confused as well: on her old machine she was able to adjust the pressure to move the fabric to allow circular sewing.
Any help is definitely appreciated!
Hi polaris,welcome to Stitcher's Guild !
Iím not familiar with your nice looking Brother JX2517 sewing machine. I downloaded and looked at the Brother JX2517 pdf user manual here and didnít see any presser foot pressure adjustment dial or different needle positions lever.
Which stitch and presser foot are you using when "the needle is a little to the right of the guide on the foot" ? Can you post a picture with the stitch settings on your machine when that happens ?
When you say "sew in a circular motion",are you talking about free motion quilting ?
