The embroidery unit needs to be calibrated. Can only been done by a trained dealer. you can relax, it is not a major issue and shuold not cost you a arm and a leg. Ask the dealer to also calibrate your touch screen and download the working hours on your machine.

SOURCE: monogram larger

The machine you have does not offer the ability to do monograms larger than 7mm (a little bigger than 1/4 inch). You could use a free motion or darning foot and with practice do your own free hand.

SOURCE: kenmore sewing machine model 385 16764

There's a website called managemyhome.com which is sponsored by Sears. It's free to join. Go to the Home Manager column and choose Owner's Manuals from the drop down menu.

You can type in the brand name (Kenmore) and model number of your machine. Not all of them are in there but, I did find the one for the 1950280 question. It's a pdf file.

For the 38516764 question, please double check your model number. I received either no response or a Kenmore Elite dishwasher manual in response to my query.

Need help, I keep getting error c 12 hoop size is smaller than embroidery data, I have the right size hoop on for the embroidery design I' using.


Perhaps the machine is not recognizing the hoop you have installed. Could be a computer component or software glitch or something wrong with the hoop itself.

You might try contacting a local machine dealer for support or contact the online manufacturer support.

Ready to stitch embroidery letters but nothing happens. The start/stop button and the number 10 design on the machine blinks. What is wrong?


Make sure the machine is on a solid, level surface. Also, it may not work if you don't have the correct foot on the machine.

Machine is saying design is bigger than it should be


You can use a larger hoop or it may be the design itself. Check who you bought it from, they may have made a mistake when they digitized it.

Calibrate the embroidery hoop


Note
The embroidery hoop can only be calibrated with the oval hoop.. You'll find the instructions for each machine in the relevant user manual.

Brother PE770 Hoop size programming stuck on small hoop option


Your machine would be able to perform 5 X 8 embroideries. The hoop size on this machine is recognized by the machine itself, depending of the embroidery file size. So it the embroidery is small, it will indicate that the small hoop is needed.

But U can use the large hoop, position the embroidery where U want then perform another embroidery on the sams hoop.

TRICK : the embroidery size exceeds the hoop? reduce it in X and or Y using this function on the machine

I bought a large hoop for my machine. But I still


From what I have been able to find out about this model, the embroidery area is limited to 4 x 4.

A larger hoop cannot change the built-in configuration of the machine's computer.

You can use a larger hoop, stitch out what you can and then re-hoop to finish - this is not easy to do.

Measuring the distance between the letters and then centering the last letter to match the previous stitching can be done, but it takes a little practice.

You can make a template using tear away stabilizer.

Stitch out the first 5 letters. Carefully remove the stabilizer - this is going to be a portion of the template.

Hoop another sheet of tear-away and stitch out the last 5 letters (these will partially overlap the first 5 when finished). Remove as in the first step.

Overlap the two templates (tape them together) and this should help you align the letters when you have to re-hoop.

Testing and a bit of practice is how I do it.

There is editing software for splitting designs and if you are interested - check Embird as it seems to be the most reasonable.

Why can't I resize any embroidery pattern? If my machine does it, then how do I do it. Also, I bought the larger hoops for my machine and my patterns still can't be used on my machine. The machine says...


The embroidery area is programed into the embroidery machine to be a certain maximum area.

If your machine is limited to 4 x 4, then this is the maximum that can be stitched.

However, there are options. One is software to split the design into two or more sections that will fit within the limitations of the EM.

You have to stitch each section, re-hooping each time, or if your machine will accept a re-positionable hoop, this may save re-hooping.

Embird is a very popular brand that many home embroiderers used.

If you do a search, you will be able to sign up for a free trial of this software.

Sorry to inform you but your machine only sews 4" x 4" . The arm on the machine can only move 4 inches up and down and 4 inches left and right.
The size of the hoop does not affect this. If you have a multi position hoop you can sew multi 4 x 4 areas without re hooping.
