Re: embroidery problem

Jim Stutsman
 

As long as the fabric has not been removed from the hoop, you should not have a problem. Just replace the hoop and touch the - (minus) key until the needle is back to the point of the first removed letter. Then push the START key.

I was in the middle of embroidering a quilt label ( small square hoop) when the bobbin thread became too loose and messed up the stitching.  I stopped the machine, removed the hoop, readjusted the bobbin, and took out bad stitches before returning hoop to machine.  Now, how do I start back to restitch the letters I took out?

It's easy you judt go hook it back up to the machine and the machine will ask if you want to start where you left off and press I believe cancel and it will start all over!

I use Stitch Buddy on my Ipad and my Apple laptop.  I easily transfer the designs with a USB memory stick.

I like the StitchBuddy app. He did a good job on it, and you can put designs into it via DropBox. In fact, for most people, the free 2GB DropBox account could hold your entire design "stash" and it would be safe in the cloud in case of hard drive crash or other disaster. There are just two flaws in StitchBuddy:


1. You cannot send designs from the StitchBuddy app to the machine, even via an external USB device. This might be changed in an update, as other companies now support sending designs from the iPad to the AirStash.


2. At $30 it's one of the most expensive apps. It's worth the price, but I think the price might scare off a lot of potential purchasers. Poor sales means it's less likely to have updates in the future.

Jim what do you think of Stitch Buddy's app? I'm thinking I can put designs in my dropbox on my laptop and I should be able to access them on the ipad to work on etc. There was an update on Nov.9/13.

Thanks for your help! Looks like I have a 'project' for myself to get
upgraded to MBX. After all, I've only had that upgrade sitting in it's
box for a year!!! LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

get to choose to leave it out. You may find it useful, as you can do more
with images using the Corel side.

3. MBX 4 is a major upgrade to Digitizer Pro with lots of added features.
Each iteration of Janome's Digitizer series brings it a little closer to
the full Wilcom product. It's well worth upgrading. >

Re: Counter

Ms Pat,
Not sure I understand your questionabout the needle. I use 75/11 or 80/12 both sharp point and ball point depending on what I'm sewing. I move up to a 90 on heavy fabric or leather and down to a 60 for small lettering.
Happy sewing.

That makes sense, I was just curious as to why (which you explained) I might need to know the stitch count.  I remember many, many years ago before the stitch intensive designs we have now, that I believe one of the other companies decided that "X" amount of stitches was the "life" of the machine...  too bad the machine they made was more durable than they imagined!
 
Tony, as long as you're around.  I just broke a needle  (LOL) what is the needle system I'm look for?  It doesn't say on the package and currently my manual is buried under a mountain because I'm trying to get my sewing room set up for the new (12000) baby :) 
 
Thanks in advance!

Stitch/hour counters work both ways for the consumer and technician. As a certified tech I use this information to track machine use during a "service cycle." This tells me how much the customer has used the machine. Does it change what gets serviced in the machine? Definitely not. It can dictate how closely I look at the more durable parts in a machine. I have 2 customers that have the same machine and are about the same age. One machine has 4,000,000 stitches. The other has 28,000,000.
For the consumer side, if you are interested in a used machine which of the above examples would you favor? Knowing how much a machine has been used will effect the resale value. If I have "sewing hours" I have a known figure to estimate how long a machine has been used. This information can provide a dealer data necessary to give a "trade-in" value.
Hope my two cents helps.
Happy Sewing.

resequence tool bar

VLS
 

Because messages are not posted right away I continued to try to figure out how to turn the resequence toolbar back onto the right hand side of the screen, I was finally successful in doing it, and I bet I never forget in the future if it ever disappears again, how to turn it back on.

MBX tool bars

VLS
 

I just got MBX and when I open a design in easy design my resequence tool bar is not there.  Im watching the first of the lessons by Trevor that came with the software.  He is explaining the resequence window but like I said I can not find mine.   I do see on the menu bar the view option but when I go to the drop down menu resequence is not listed so what else would it be called so I can turn it on.

Re: Questions about installing MBX 4.0

Jim Stutsman
 

1. We've been using MBX 4 in a Windows XP virtual machine with no problems. As long as you have a good video card and monitor you should be fine on XP.


2. Unfortunately the Corel software is tightly bound to MBX and you don't get to choose to leave it out. You may find it useful, as you can do more with images using the Corel side.


3. MBX 4 is a major upgrade to Digitizer Pro with lots of added features. Each iteration of Janome's Digitizer series brings it a little closer to the full Wilcom product. It's well worth upgrading.

Jim--

I have a couple of questions about installing the update from MBDigiPro 3
to MBX 4.

1) My laptop has XP. The MBX 4 box only lists Windows 7 for an operating
system, which is why I haven't installed it yet. Will it run on XP or do
I need to upgrade the laptop?

2) I understand there is a bunch of Corel stuff in the update. Is it
possible to install just MBX without the Corel stuff??? I doubt I would
ever use the Corel parts, or are they an integral part of MBX now.

3) For most of what I do, I have had no problems using DigiPro with my
12000, as I am able to make any size hoop in the program, and have added
in a 230 x 230 and the 230 x 300 as hoops for the Other Machine category.
Are there any new "special gotta haves" in the MBX 4, such as there were
when MB superceded plain old DigiPro??

Thanks for your help and expertise!!
