Good call Sue. As far as I know, the limit of 78 color changes is still true for the 12000. I'm also wondering whether Zena hit the limit in the software that converted the design to JEF format, rather than in the machine itself.

Apart from the limitation on the number of stitches there also used to be a limit on the number of colour changes ( not actual colours). Maybe thatâ€™s something you ladies that have problems could look at ?

Odd. In the time since I stitched out the first design with more than 100,000 stitches I have stitched 2 others in the 90,000 range in the 230 X 300 hoop. Neither the machine nor HorizonLink had problems accepting either of the 90,000 stitch designs.

Today I tried to stitch out an Embroidery Library design on the 230 x 230 hoop. It had 55048 stitches, this was too many stitches for the machine. I reduced the design to 49273 and the design stitched out fine.
