SOURCE: How do I change the stiches?

You can do all of these stitches by using different combinations of your stitch selector, stitch width and stitch feed knobs, for instance, on the panel I can see on your machine:

http://www.jo-ann.com/joann/product/images/52659.jsp?CATID=cat3122&PRODID=prd11333

Stitches 1, 2 & 3 are straight stitches, centered, left and right. Really basic stuff, not different stitches at all. 4,5,6,7 & 8 are zig-zag stitches of different widths. 9 is the widest zig-zag (no. 8) on a finer stitch length, etc...

I think you should try and get an instruction manual for your machine. After a lengthy search of my usual manual sources, I've determined that that this may not be so easy. I think you should contact White on their 800 number and let them try and help you... 1-800-331-3164.

If you found this helpful, please vote generously as I receive nothing other than acknowledgement for my time.

SOURCE: Bernina Bernette 600 Deco embroidery machine

It could be that there is a loose piece of thread, or some fluff which is obstructing the tension gauge. Try blowing around the theading area (or even run the hoover pipe near it to see if you can **** it out). I cleared mine by folding a piece of non fluffy material and rubbing gently between the tension dial and machine.

Good luck

SOURCE: can I transfer a pattern from brother 4000d machine to usb

Welcome to Fix Ya!
Are you trying to transfer a built-in pattern from your machine to a USB flash drive? I'm not sure if built-in designs can be transferred in their original form. You might try editing the design a bit, save it to a memory space, then save it to the memory stick. If you have a manual, it should describe how to move designs from your embroidery machine to your computer, and vice versa.
If you are other readers have time to rate my answer, you'll help me become a better expert. If you can give me more specific information about what happens when you try to upload a design from your machine, and whether you have a manual feel free to leave a comment and I'll check back with you.   Cheers, Ginny

Does the brother inovis v-5 have a basting function


A basting stitch can be done on most any machine. Just extend the stitch length as long as possible and loosen the top tension so the bobbin thread lays flat on the underside of the fabric.

How do you machine baste on a brother PE 830DL I am wanting to embroider on stretch material and I was told to float the stretch material and baste it to the tear away in the hoop thanks


A basting stitch is just a matter of setting the stitch length to very long. If you want to remove the basting stitch after your project is complete, you can also loosen the top tension so the bobbin thread will pull out very easily.

Wondering if a wash-away fabric spray adhesive will work just as well.

How can I do basting stitch for machine embroidery?


Some machines have a built-in basting stitch. If yours doesn't have it, the closest you can get is setting the stitch length to as long as possible. To make the basting stitch easy to remove, loosen the upper tension. Then to remove the thread, just grab the bobbin thread and pull.

My thread broke and now my needle wont go up or down what can i do?


If the needle wont go up and down at all when you turn the handwheel, it's most likely due to fluff and general muck has got into the basting stitch mechanism - this is a frequent failure on Artista models that have the basting stitch option. Try gently pushing the needle bar up at the same time as turning the handwheel ... with any luck the basting solenoid clutch will re-engage with the hole in the needle bar. If this works, it's only a temporary fix and tells you that your machine is overdue for a service !!!! Getting the gunge out of the basting mechanism needs to be done by a Bernina service agent. Trouble is, some embroidery patterns use the basting mechanism to raise the needle-bar out of the way whilst the hoop moves to a distant point on the embroidery, so if you 'fix it' using the above method, it may well fail again when you try to do another embroidery. Sorry !

Fix button won't work in embroidery mode


Just to make sure you know what "Fix" does in Embroidery Mode - you press it before you start your embroidery then when you press Start, the machine will baste a square or rectangle the size of your embroidery before moving back to the centre ready to start the actual embroidery. It is not used to Fix stitches in embroidery mode (like it does in regular sewing mode) and it must be used before the embroidery is begun if you want the basting. Is this problem you have? It will not do the baste stitch?
