Dan,
Oh yea....presser foot adjustment. The job of the presser foot is to hold the material down until the needle breaks free on it's initial up-stroke.

The only other thing to be aware of when setting presser foot heigth is the type of material you are sewing on. If it is leather, suede, velour, velvet, etc...and if the presser foot is leaving a footprint from battering the material, then raise it a notch or so and slow down the machine a bit.

For most materials that you will be sewing on, including caps (XT ONLY) all the way down and up two clicks is the norm. Running too high of a speed on too thick of a material with the presser foot too low may even result in cutting of the material from the battering taking place.

Sweatshirts or anything with loft to it, needs to be "Compressed" by the presser foot, not just touching the top of it. Think of taking the material between your thumb and forefinger and squeezing all of the air out of it...same thing with the presser foot....

Just remember the job of the presser foot is to HOLD that material DOWN until the needle breaks free from the material on the upstroke. If the material is allowed to lift, called "flagging", then thread breakage and fraying is a sure result.
