Re: Hooping Tip Video

Thanks for the link, but that is way overboard and really the sort of thing I plan to try just with hooping a permanent stablizer as a frame for basting to the hoop.

Does anyone use the system shown in the link?  I don't like the idea of sticking or gluing things permanently and I don't like the idea of using glue on fabric.

The idea seems to waste fabric, use glue, an iron and her specific backing fabric - all increasing the cost of an already expensive hobby.  She also contradicts herself at several points in the video.

One idea that did occur to me while watching though was to use a couple of hand clamps (which we have in the garage anyway!) to assist with holding either end of the hoop! Will have to give that a try! :0)

I've always used Schmetz needles, and have them in 3 different sizes. Are Organ needles really better? What is the best for machine embroidery on my 12000?

I used to use something else, but switched to BackBlaze. I'm not sorry.

Jim, I’ve been watching this thread about backing up pcs to a cloud program.  I’m interested in the backup program you mentioned below, but I can’t tell where one link ends and another one begins .  Would you please share the link to the backup program you used when you had Windows Acronis True Image; thanks !

It will do a mirror image backup, allowing for easy restore to a new hard drive (or clone of an old drive to a new, larger drive). You can also restore parts of the backup, by folder and/or file.

Regard these backup programs, the ones I remember from the old  my marine seismic days were the ones where you backed up the whole operating system and files. If you wanted to restore it, you got another hard drive and copied everything to it. I’m looking for something where I have an option to back up the system, yet be able to get to specific directories and pull off specific files.  Is there such a beast out there?

Just make sure doing the maths right: Depending on the volume of backed up data and your network connection, a restore might take quite a while if your Mac's drive of e.g. 250 GB is completely gone. The transfer alone might take days. And as a German I have to state that I would have privacy concerns transferring all my Mac's data to an external company...

 

I'm using a TimeCapsule for "permanent" backup over my local network (which is a lot faster), and from time to time I'm backing up to two external drives which I swap and keep at a separate location (to prevent fire / burglary).

Cloudy, with a chance of data, Jim says:

Those are excellent points. BackBlaze will restore data via download, but in cases where a lot of data is involved (loss of hard drive) they will ship you a hard drive containing the data for a little more than the cost of the drive. All data that you back up to the cloud is encrypted with your personal key, so even if they get hacked your data is secure.

 

Remember - the most expensive backup is the one you don't have!

Ironically I did the download today and have not had a problem.  I was getting errors  on attempting to download then remembered to update through Dell support drivers, etc. I also remembered to do the current MBX driver download before the W10 and can now open and use the program.
Every situation is different. Thankfully, I'm good with 10.

I have upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 and have had no problems with my sewing programs BuzzTools, Designers Gallery, Embird, or Horizon Links.  Everything has continued to work the same as always.

Happy Stitching,

You're welcome.  I always found this interesting but too fussy for me.  It may give you some ideas.

I have been told that updating to Windows 10 from Windows 7 may crash some of my programs such as buzz tools, Horizon Link, etc, etc.  Advice please.   What experiences have you had?  thanks

Re: Hooping Tip Video

Anne Parker
 

Thank you for posting this Ceil

I would have liked to see her do it with a really large hoop.  She says it's easy for them too, but I find the large hoops are a problem for me when hooping fabric which is why I am thinking more of just hooping a permanent stabliser and using that to secure the fabric too - maybe tacking it into the hoop using the sewing function so I can keep control and tension on easily.

I have very small hands - I can wear childrens gloves (and shoes and clothes for that matter!) - and find that my hands are just not big enough to easily maintain the tension around the large hoops.

Anyone else got any suggestions?

I purchased BackBlaze the last time Jim recommend it and am very happy with it. I've had to use it a couple of times, as I get a little crazy  deleting stuff that's on my PC when cleaning up the files using my laptop. Restore does not work when you're working on a network, so BackBlaze was a lifesaver. Thanks, Jim!

embroidery files organizer

Charlene Kay Bergren
 

I'm not sure if I'm in the correct group to ask this question but I'm wondering if anyone has an excellent embroidery file organizer that eliminates duplicate file automatically and organizes existing files.  I used to have my computers in perfect condition folder wise, then I got a program that duplicated, moved and messed the whole file system up.  My own fault for not checking out the program more carefully.  But now, I'm wondering if someone can direct me to a great program - I'm hoping.  Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions.

Thanks, Jim.
I was looking at BackBlaze, Mozy, and CrashPlan.  I've read various reviews, and BackBlaze is said to be simple to use.  Your endorsement means a lot and that's the one I'll pick!  Thanks again. Ceil

HI

I use the cloud (Google drive) that is attached to my Gmail email account - I back-up my embroidery designs and other important files to there (as well as on an external hard drive). I must admit I do not back up my whole system.
