What fabric your sewing on like cotton you would use a different
needle than if you were sewing on stretch fabric.
it's also possible that a gear or decorative cam may be worn or
damaged, having the machine checked at a repair shop would
be a good idea

Brother embroidery machine has started shifting design outline between first colour and others, about 1/2 inch can't back up to correct starting point, doesn't respond.

Did it do this on more than one pattern? Has it stitched this pattern before correctly ? You can try turning the machine off and back on and let it reset. If it is only doing it with this pattern and it's the first time you have stitched it , try again after turning the machine off and back on. If it's not doing it to other patterns and you bought the pattern contact who you bought it from as there is a flaw in the design. Have them check and resend it. I have a converter program so if you get it in a different format you can change it to your format. Sometimes it is designed on a different machine and did not convert well. When I have this problem I download it in .hus and convert it for brother. There are several free preview programs that show you the design and stitch order and let you save it to different formats. If this isn't the problem I would call brother USA +1-877-276-8437 this is in TN. And open 24 hr. And explain to them what it is doing.

Straight stitch has peaks

Check your stitch pattern because you most likely have machine set to perform a blind stitch. chane your pattern setting to desired stitch and make sure you use appropriate foot attachment for the results you want. jimmy

Skipped stitches and getting worse

It might be that you have the wrong needle/ thread combination for the fabric that you are using. sharps for wovens, ball point for knits. the heavier the fabric and the thicker the thread the larger needle you need to use.
