Re: Dropped embroidery unit.

Jim Stutsman
 

If there is no obvious damage then put it on the machine. Before you turn on the machine open the arm and make sure it opens smoothly. Then turn on the machine, choose a large design, and use the trace function to run the arm through most of its motion. If you don't get any scary noises or obvious hangups you are probably OK. Keep your hand on the power switch in case things go horribly wrong.


Dropped embroidery unit.

Good morning. I carelessly dropped my embroidery unit on the floor. I thought the case was zipped up and it was not.
i cannot see any damage,  and shook it and can’t hear any loose parts.
should I try to attach it to my machine and see if it works? Will it damage my machine?
i have tried to contact our local dealer but he is not open and does not return my calls.
thank you in advance for your help
Darlene.

I don't 'do' social media' except for 'support' and have advised against it since the 1990's.  I was hoping this mentioned Michael McKibben and Leader Technologies but it doesn't...terrible shame.  The 'real' story goes back further than 'social media' and, in fact, to at least the 'Civil War' but that's even more off topic...just as interesting, though.  Thank you for sending the link.

Today is especially meaningful for those of us in the United States, but I would imagine that wherever you live you remember where you were when you heard the news. So much has changed since September 11, 2001, that we can barely recognize the world we live in. Like me, you may be wondering "How did we come to this?" Last night I watched a documentary-drama on Netflix that goes a long way toward answering that question, and it raises some chilling concerns. It's called the social dilemma. While I have purposely avoided anything political on this list, this documentary applies to both sides of the aisle. It focuses on the one thing we all have in common, our humanity.

In full disclosure, I had a son who worked at Netflix, though he hasn't for more than a year. They don't need me to shill for them - COVID-19 has given them a huge surge of subscribers. They paid for the documentary, so it's not likely to be available on any other platform, at least for now. If you use Google, Facebook, Twitter, or even Pinterest you need to watch it. This post is NOT click-bait - I get no income from this list, though I do pay for it. I'm not looking for comments either. I just want you to know what's going on. Be aware, stay well.

I watched it and it is so eye opening! Very scary. I hope there id a solution to this problem. I vow to stay off of social media except for friends and just delete everything that does not have a reliable source and not forward anything that has to do with politics. This program shows how easily influenced people, especially children are affected.

I was very interested in this documentary.  I am like the daughter that doesn't want a smart phone. I prefer the computer. I do not use facebook except for some sewing and genealogy groups.  My personal account has never been actually opened.  My spouse has Alexa all over the house, two smart phones, a computer, and an iPad. I liked the part in the docu that showed the three guys that could track you 24/7 for everything under the sun, specialize the advertising and make money off me.  I have AD Remover to more or less divert the ads.
Also have you noticed the posture of the 13 to 35 year old's. Have you noticed the lack of proper manners with the device in public.  Have you noticed the lack of civil disobedience by our leaders as well as activists'. I don't need to know anyone's opinion of my daily life or my selfies.
Thank you for letting us watch this in our own private area of our house on TV.        Martie in ca

Thanks to all. Those previous conversations were what got me thinking I’d like to try hand look quilting. However, no where in the instruction book or addendums did it tell where to find the stitch on the machine. Or on you tube. Instructions for setting up were plentiful. Finally, I found it. Go to HOME, then the tee shirt, then to Quilting RW VZZ. Once you open that there are selections for Hand Look QU. I finished my small project and am pleased with the results.

As Faviola said, there's a large conversation thread on hand look quilting, ie which stitch, what threads to use, tension settings, etc. Use the "search" box at the top of the page and it should pull up a LOT of responses on Hand Look quilting.

Hand look! It depends on what you mean by that!
We've had this discussion before, do you want hand look quilting? Or hand look Embroidery?
Hand look quilting has already been explained, Hand Look embroidery is in Decorative Stitches Page 9 on the 15000.

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!

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

Cheryl Paul
 

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

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!
