Can anyone help me with the removal of fabric once i have finished stitching on my Brother 2340cv? It does not automatically release like others and you have to pull the threads and pull fabric? i have put holes in fabric and broken a few needles. What am i doing wrong? if anyone could make a short video, i would be so happy. This is making me nuts!

Thank you! I figured it out now! Someone mentionned disengaging the lower looper and it worked like a charm. Before i did this, it was like pulling taffey to get the fabric out. Now it slides out. Great info. Thank you all for making me happy with my new machine :-)

This is the best tutorial. The way she does it is so much simpler than even what is shown in the manual.

For the 2340 I use my long tweezers that has a bend at the tip. This bend proves beneficial because there is sometimes a few layers of fabric to the left of the presser foot that can interfere with your left hand trying to manipulate a straight tool and the bend lifts your hand up just enought to clear extra fabric. I insert this under the presser foot catching the needle threads and use 2 fingers of my right hand to keep the tension release buttons pushed to the right. I swivel the tweezers about a quarter turn towards me and the threads stay in the bend of the tweezers and pull forward about 4 or 5 inches, holding it taut until I snip the threads. Snip through all layers of thread close to the tweezers. This keeps you from having to stick the scissors or snips between the threads...faster. Then use index finger on right hand to slide looper tension release button while pulling fabric straight back. Snip and you are done. Snip top threads and knot and bury bottom threads. Voila! Perfect!

Thank you for this detailed explanation. I'm a new 2340CV owner and this is very helpful.
