UGRR in Indiana

My 4 times great grandfather Charles Hull served in war of 1812 
For his service, The president granted him a 100 acre homestead in southern Indiana.
He Married Pruea Judd from TN. Pruea's father built the KY and TN UGRRs
Pruea and Harriet  Tubman traveled Indiana to assign the safe houses.
Years ago the Indiana DNR commissioned the writing of the Indiana Underground railroad its eastern routes and passages.
Chapters 2 and 3 are about the Hull's.
I met the author in Facebook. she added to my story.
My mother would set my Shirley temple curls with sugar water, bees chased me all the time.
We would go down for a reunion everybody went outside after to play .
Not me the bees kept me inside I would sit under the table and listen to them talk about 'Aunt Mary' [really was Pruea]
I was the only one to hear it, one day grandpa found me under there and made me swear to never tell what I had heard .
When I was 60 I decided it was time to tell.
Nobody believed me so I bought each of my siblings a copy of the book.
After each dinner I would get other relatives aside and ask to confirm what I heard often they would add a bit.
Aunt Amelia never went to the dinners our step grandmother kicked her out when she was 15 so she never returned.
She enriched with more details.Pruea died 13 years before the civil war began She had already built the UGRR and helped hundreds to freedom.
My whole life I kept the secret even when the black kids would tell me I owed them for what my ancestors did.
Pruea and Charles had 5 sons all five served in the civil war.One was captured and the POWs were sent home after the war on the steamboat
Sultana he was on it when it exploded still to this day our largest maritime disaster, bigger than the Titanic.

Re: Calibration issue

Jim Stutsman
 

If you turn the machine off, wait a minute, then back on, it will re-center as part of the self-test. If that doesn't work there is a calibration option in Settings. However being off 2" in either direction is huge, well beyond anything you can calibrate. That would require service.


Re: printing a recipe?

I digitized the recipe with an easy to read font  divided into four steps.  One Step for each corner. Made for my grand-daughter.
I'll add the noodle recipe photos Any time you see a red line or dot It is an alignment point or leveling line.
I found the center of each corner made a cross for alignment for hooping the flour sack towel.
When I digitized the steps each design had a center alignment cross.
When I hooped the corner I used the placement plastic to get it centered on a 5 by 7 hoop.

Calibration issue

Mary E
 

I was doing quilting in Accuquilt and a small pair of scissors fell to the back of the machine between the arm and where you depress the switch to open the arm. I got to it fairly quickly but I am wondering if the calibration got knocked out, because now it seems to center up about 2" to the right and 2 " lower than before. I am working on a client job and can compensate but have to be careful that the needle holder doesn't hit the magnets while stitching. 
my question is, is this a fairly easy fix or am I looking at a whole new arm? I have a lot of jobs in the queue and i need my embroidery machine!
thanks

Hi Vicki,
Yes, I would REALLY like to know how exactly you embroidered/printed the family recipe onto a flour sack towel

Re: monofilament thread

Patricia Ward
 

I would use the regular or red bobbin.  Applique is a decorative regular sewing stitch so that is why I suggested that.

Re: Puckers in embroidery

 

Joyce:

I avoid using fusible polimesh. What I do is I hoop the item, if it is not a  shrink fabric, with medium weight tearaway stabilizer then if it presents puckers I float under the hoop a sheet or two of light telar away stabilizer. If it is a stretching fabric I use the cut stabilizer and also I have used , with excellent results a piece of an old pillow case or bed sheet and in the top, a transparent water  soluble stabilizer.

Hope this can be of help

Thanks for all the tips on preventing puckers on embroidery projects.
My sampler is finally finished the fourth time.  It has some ripples
but no nasty puckers.  I have fusible polymesh.  Is there a way to preshrink
it before use?  I know it peels away easily, so should I iron it onto some
scrap fabric first, then remove it for the project??

Thanks everyone,
Joyce

I don't fully understand your question Roberta. Wash Away stabilizer on t-shirts, of course!
Printable type? I don't know of any reason why one would use a Printable Type Wash Away Stabilizer for embroidery of this type. Usually that product is used when doing hand embroidery, and in that case is because it's the pattern that is drawn onto the stabilizer so that the hand embroidery can be done.
Wash Away Stabilizers are ANY stabilizers that dissolve with water, and there are several available.
Film type in at least 3 weights, Mesh type in various weights/quality and sticky back, and the paper type that can be drawn or printed on.

Fusible No Show Mesh: I do the same thing, pre-shrink it! Obviously you don't touch the fusible side with the iron, if you pre-shrink by blasting it with steam. My preferred method is to soak it in very warm water.
Actually I only buy fusible, it's a more versatile product, Fuse if you need it, don't fuse if you don't want to fuse.

Here is a video that Jennifer Tryon did of taking a photo with iPad and then moving it into AcuEdit to trace over the original recipe with the open. You can then export it to your machine using wifi. It may have been on the Janome Classroom or Janome sewing.

Suggest using electric quilt fabric. It lasts and lasts

Fave:

Are you suggesting that wash-away stabilizer can be used on t-shirts? I assume that you are referring to the printable type? What brand do you use?

Favymtz:

I heartily agree with you about no-show mesh stabilizer. When I first started using it, which was mostly on t-shirts, I would always get puckers around my embroidery after washing the completed item. I always thought it was my error.

However, when I finally discovered the problem and changed my preparation for hooping by pre-shrinking the stabilizer, the problem was solved.

I would like to know how you deal with fusible no-show mesh?

Thanks in advance,
