Avante 18 with pro stitches will move without stitching.
  • Ok my avante 18 Moves without stitching. When you starts were it picks up the bobbin thread it doesn't do it the needle does not go down. To pick up the bobbin thread It just moves over , than ask me to resume . The needle does not go up and down.the machine just moves like it is sewing. Need help
  • Dear Boxer,
    There could be a few things that it might be. First of all you need to turn it on in a certain order. You need to turn on the machine first and then the Pro-Stitcher. This will connect the Avante to the Pro-Stitcher. You can check to see if they're connected by looking at the Avante screen. If they are connected you will see the word Pro-Stitcher in the middle running length wise.
    Second thing you can check, is go to the Quilt menu and make sure that stitch function is activated.
    The last thing is to make sure all your cables are connected. Especially the small black one on the side of your Avante 18.
    If you still are having difficulties please give us a call.
