Question about Sewing Machines

1 Answer

I am having problems with multi format designs in that when I enlarge the jump stitches change to running stitches in the stitch out, how do I avoid this happening thank you

Picking up different softwares and converting them, doesn't work with PES, or VP3. I have a Diamond machine so it should read them but keeps giving me running stitches.

Conversion is conversion there is always some loss. Take design into your software and see how it converts.

How can i change the stitch type


On a sewing machine, it would be the stitch design selector in conjunction with the stitch length and stitch width selections. For a zig-zag stitch, a stitch width selection higher than zero will give a wide stitch.

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

How do I enlarge decorative stitches on a Bernina 830?


The only way (that I'm aware of) to enlarge decorative stitches is by increasing the stitch width and the stitch length. You might try a thicker thread that will cover more. The only other way might be to use embroidery software.

Hai Kim, Please change the correct size needle. Otherwise corrected the design in computer. For ex: stitches 12,702 decrease the design some 1000 or 2000 stitches.

WHAT IS THE BEST FORMAT FOR IMPORTING EBROIDERY DESIGNS


Each kind of embroidery machine will import differently; Bernina uses an ART format and only that. Many collections (designs) are multi-formatted with ART, PES, HUS, ***, etc. Your machine will embroider best with a specific format - your dealer should be able to tell you which one to use. If that is not possible, pick an easy/small number of stitches design and try several formats to see which one stitches out best.

Having problem downloading patterns from disc to memory card have spent hours trying


Judy, you mention memory card so I am assuming you are refering to a Compact Flash card that you insert into a PCMCIA adaptor.
The card must be smaller than 512 MB, any larger and the machine won't acknowledge it. You need a type 1 card and compact flash card adaptor, a compact card reader/writer unless you have an integral multi card reader integrated into your computer. The card format must be FAT, the older computer file format. Insert the card into the adaptor and insert into your machine, wait for the warning screen to clear, if the machine asks "format card" hit yes on the machines display screen . If there is no offer to format the card use the SET icon on the display screen, you need embroidery mode, then arrow forward till you reach the Format options, select ATA card, hit yes, it will warn you card contents will be erased, hit OK. Just say yes to any new questions. Wait for the warning screen to dissapear, when it does you can eject the card adaptor, now insert the card alone into your digital media card reader which should be inserted via a USB connection to your computer, locate the drive your computer has allocated to the card and open it. You will see two types of folders, ORD which are for combined decorative stitches you might want to save, those you put together in the machine, and EMB folders, those are where the machine expects to find designs,11 of each.
Only use them to transfer designs between the machine and computer or vice versa, don't use them to store all your designs in, you will over tax your machines on board processor.
To pop designs into them, open your design CD, select the design you want to stitch, copy it, now open the card in your computer, open the first folder, number 5, I think, and Paste into that folder. Use only JEF formats, your machine wont read any other format.
Don't transfer designs into the machines built in folders, you will severely constrict the machines memory to the point where it wont be able to access enough memory to stitch your designs. Use the compact card as an external drive, which it is anyway, the machine will still stitch the design as if it were in its own memory. To access the card in the machine, select embroidery mode, then the card icon and finally if needed the file icon.
Hope this helps you

Pfaff creative half-speed and thread breaks


YIKES - what a nightmare! We can approach your problem two ways, but to determine whether the problem is your machine or your design, I need to know if you have been using one design, or if you've tried to embroidery several different designs and are getting threadbreaks about every 10,000 stitches, no matter what design, needle, thread, and bobbin you use.

Here are some rules you should following whenever you embroider on your machine:

  • Change your needle and insert a newly wound bobbin every time you start a new project
  • Use a size Embroidery Needle - size 90 for most projects
  • Check the backside of your design - you should see alot more bobbin thread than embroidery thread. If you don't see enough bobbin thread, loosen your top tension. If the tension is set automatically, change it manually.
  • Your design might be the problem. Some designs have WAY to many stitches. If you haven't already, choose several different designs with different styles - for example, a monogram, a design that is mostly satin stitches, a design that is mostly straight stitches, and so on. Sew one or all over and over so you determine whether your thread will continue to break about every 10,000 stitches.
I hope this helps. Machine embroidery is so much fun once you've learned and practiced. I hope to hear from you - machine embroidery is not hard to learn, but there is a lot to learn. Thanks.







If you want to get right to work, skip the troubleshooting and answer as many questions as you can or have time for. It is possible that your problem is the design and not the machine. Try one suggestion at time so you what helps and what doesn't. Questions first:

  1. Is the machine brand new, or new to you?
  2. Do you have your manual?
  3. Do you been embroidering by machine for a while, or are you just learning?
  4. Does this problem occur with every design you sew, or is it one particular design that you are having trouble with?
  5. How many total stitches are in the design you are trying ot sew?
  6. What kind of thread are you using (rayon, poly, sewing?)
  7. Did you buy the machine from a dealer, and if so, does it have a warranty?
  8. Have you taken lessons on how to use your machine for both sewing and embroidery?
  9. Are you familiar with embroidery backings, needles, and threads and how to choose which to use for a particular project?

Desgin stitch out on Futura 250


It sounds as though the design is stitching but the machine is skipping stitches. If this is the case, be sure you hoop the tear away in the hoop with your fabric.Make sure the fabric is taut. Use a new needle and a good quality thread.If this doesn't solve your problem, try the design on a different type of fabric.
