From the main screen, click on the house icon, then click on the shirt icon, then the quilt icon, and it’s on that panel. That “shirt” icon hides a lot of cool things!

Where can I find the hand look stitches on the 15000?  

Thanks,

Thank YOU, for not only being honest but also what we may need to watch instead of having are heads stuck in sewing and embroidery videos.  I will watch thank you

Thanks Jim for the heads up on this and yes, I am sure all of us know exactly where we were 9/11/01. Still gives me chills.

Hugs to all. Please stay safe and healthy and also, be kind to those you come in contact with, both in person and online. J

Sounds like something in that circuit board. I think a visit to the sewing machine doc is required, sorry.

Re: shrinking cut away no show stabilizer

I haven’t noticed any shrinkage on other types of stabilizers, however one should always do a test before embroidering on your good fabric. It checks to see how the stitch-out will be, tensions and all things that may be a problem when you actually do your final product. Use fabric as close to what you will be using for the test and also the same stabilizer.

AcuEdit with Dropbox after getting a new ipad

Suzi Bohannon
 

After getting a new iPad and getting AcuEdit from iCloud.  Cannot find a way to get some new designs into acudesign from Dropbox.  Don’t seem to be able to see anything except emb and embrace folder.  After saying all that I admit I have not been able to use my software for several months, so very rusty brain.  

Is the problem possibly because it is  new iPad?

Even if they say it won’t shrink, I would not trust it. You can cut large squares of No show mesh, soak them in warm water and then dry them on medium in your dryer. Then you can use the stabilizer with much better results!

I discovered the problem with polyester mesh a couple of years ago. I would get all this puckering once I finished my project and tried to iron it. I searched online and I found an article that was posted by “Designs By Juju”, that said the same thing. Polyester no show mesh definitely shrinks.

Has anyone noticed any shrinking in other types of stabilizers? I was wondering if we should preshrink them as well.

Thank you,

I bought a LARGE roll of medium weight cutaway and it also shrank when washed/dried.  I now pull off several yards at a time and wash and dry it before I use it.  It hasn't seemed to shrink any more after the one wash cycle.  I've always wondered if that could be done with heat and bond type adhesive stabilizers.  Has anybody tried it?


RED FACED - I WAS WRONG! Mess stabilizer test - I gave wrong information

Charlene Kay Bergren
 

Hi Everyone – I am writing with a RED FACE – I WAS WRONG when I told everyone where I located the “No Show Mesh Stabilizer” made with nylon.  I had actually purchased it from Amazon and it is “NEW brothread”

No Show Mesh Stabilizer.  I had order several things that day – and got the packing slips mixed up – MY COMPLETE FAULT!

 

I DID NOT order this from DIME.  Please, please accept my apology for giving you the incorrect supplier. 

 

The label does say it is made of “100% embossed nylon”. 

 

I still have not used it – but will report on it as soon as I do.

 

I wanted to correct my unfortunate ERROR! 

 

Again, I’m so sorry!

Re: shrinking cut away no show stabilizer

I had the same problem with no-show mesh stabilizer. I was doing my homework from a class I took (and haven’t finished yet) and decided to use a fuse on no-show mesh to do rows of decorative stitching. I think that perhaps the problem started before I even started stitching when I fused the stabilizer onto my fabric. I was really PO’d when I saw the results of my work, thankfully it was only an 8X10 piece, but there were 2 of them. I pressed and pressed, used steam, Best Press - you know the drill and nothing worked. I took a picture of this and send it to my dealer, who was instructing the class and she suggested it was the stabilizer. She used “tear away” in class, but I didn’t want to spend time “tearing away”, and since mine was going to turn into a bunch of wall hangings instead of a “quilt”, I though the no-show mesh was a better option - ABSOLUTELY NOT. I will repeat the exercise with a better stabilizer.

It is disappointing though as the “no-show” is suppose to be a better support on t-shirts for embroidery and be less visible than other stabilizer and softer for embroidery on t-shirts. That hasn’t been my experience.

Line drying won’t typically shrink fabric or stabilizer because it is the heat of machine drying or ironing/steaming that causes the shrinkage process. 

From what others have shared.  You can either get it wet and throw it in the dryer or steam press it before using it to preshrink it.

I would say, if you wash it in the sink and let it line dry, I would think it would work o.k.  That is just a guess, as I haven’t used it washed yet.  I’m in the same mess.  DIME carries a nylon no-show that is not suppose to shrink.  Have it but can’t tell you the results yet.

I have had an issue with cutaway no show stabilizer.  After embroidery is finished and giving it a press the stabilizer shrinks.  what brand does not do this? and now that i have a large roll what is the solution for me? thank you

I've had the shrinking problem as well.  It's so disheartening! 
I cannot find 100% nylon no show mesh on the DIME site, nor do they say it won't shrink.  I wonder if they've changed the formula?
