I just added my photos to Georgia From O hio. The quilt is machine embroidery appliqué.I used Anita Good Designs from her Butterflies and Bees and some other to fill in to make a 35 block quilt.   I also did the longarm quilting.

Re: Acufil webinar

Pam Davison
 

Here is the response I got back from Janome:

In AcuFil you print a layout template, showing how many hoopings are required for the design you have selected and a full size individual template of the design. 

Start quilting in the center part of your quilt, using the individual template for hoop placement.  Stitch your design.  Moving either to the right or to the left, continue using the template for fabric placement, stitch.  Our Educator likes to stitch in a circular arrangement, using the template for fabric placement. 

Depending on what pattern you have selected and the creativity of your quilt, our Educator finds that using the template for fabric placement as the quilting progresses is easier than trying to mark a grid on the quilt. 

 

Should your dealer be unable to assist you with the operation of your machine or with using an accessory, your dealer can reach out to Janome to find the answer for you.

I just sent Janome Support asking them to keep the webinars coming and to update the webinar with showing how to mark the fabric and how to do the first re-hooping.

I figure the most they can tell me is no.

What I did was use basting spray and did the sew in the middle lines then I started using th acufil to do the designs.

In reading about the Acufil they suggest staring in the middle and working your way to the outside.  At least that's what I've seen.

Gail,  I wondered about that too!  Seems though they just just started in the upper left hand corner.  I would think things would be better if you found the exact center and worked out on each side from there.
Has anyone else have any comments?
Thanks,

I just watched the webinar and thought it gave a lot of information.  One question I have is how do you mark your quilt to start with.  Do you draw the number of squares that you need for hooping on your quilt, then draw the center crosses in them?

Hoping to hear from you
Gail







Embroidered Toilet Paper

I added some photos as examples of some of what I've done.  It is very easy to do this and people love it!  The sockmonkeys/towels were for a woman at work who wanted a set for each of her kids and one for herself.  The Eagle Scout is a huge favorite and I do them for all the Eagles in our scouting district when they wearn the award. 


These are for looking at - but in a pinch if there's no other tp....  I recommend they keep the outer layer around the roll and it can be wrapped onto another roll after a trip to the store.  LOL

Re: Redwork on MC 12000 with Cotona

Well clearly, the 12000 knows it's job way better than I do. I changed to the yellow bobbin holder and to a size 11 embroidery needle, and the small sample stitched almost flawlessly. After a minute adjustment to lessen the bobbin tension, it is now perfect. I mistakenly thought the cotton thread would need much less tension and a topstitch needle.

I'll try the yellow bobbin holder but I thought that would have too much tension for this thread. Do you think this needs more or less top thread tension? I have the foot height at 3 mm. It's just so frustrating that only small areas do this.

I'm having difficulty getting a completely smooth stitch-out of the built-in redwork designs. The fabric is all cotton, coarse linen-like weave. The thread is Madeira Cotona in both top and bobbin. The bobbin holder is the regular, not yellow dot. Needle is topstitch 12, but I've also tried 11. Stabilizer is Ultra Solvy on bottom, with regular Solvy on top. I've tried all 3 sizes of designs and still have top thread looping on the underside in the design areas that have triple stitches when running vertically. The rest of the design seems to stitch out fine. And yes, I do use the lockout key when threading and loading the bobbin. Any suggestions on diagnosis, or adjustments?

Re: Screen Resolution vs screen size

blue_lak <no_reply@...>
 

It depends on so many things. Hi res on a 17" monitor should be just fine if you're not running digitizing software. If you are, then a larger monitor with the same resolution may be fine too. IMHO what's more important for really accurate representation is being able to calibrate for color, i.e. that it has either the software or has manual controls to fine-tune adjusting contrast, color, saturation, etc. If the monitor has that, then it's going to have good resolution by default. Calibrating isn't difficult but so few people are aware except those working in the graphics field. Another thing to consider is what kind of lighting you have in the room where the computer will be used. Nonglare/matte screens don't give nearly as sharp a picture as gloss screens, just like photo paper.

As the looping is only occurring in one direction you might check for a rough spot on your needle plate or on your bobbin case.

There is a washable tearaway that looks something like paper.�� I get it from Carolyn at anembroideredaffair.com������ This is a yahoo group and she sells items at discount.�� Don't know the manufacturer but if you go on her site you can find it, or contact her. �� If you don't want to use this, try several layers of vilene on the bottom. Increase the top a little at a time.�� As for the foot height I don't know what that would do. I was playing with the yellow and reg bobbin holder and it seemed that they are pre-set and that is the difference.�� As I am new with this machine would suggest you check with Jim or someone else on that issue. �� Keep trying, Claire S.

You just never know. I did a roll for my heart Dr. 7-8 years ago. Since then I have done logo embroidery on staff scrub tops and lab coats. I did a human heart and his name on the 1st. roll. Minimum investment turned to a money maker4.

I enjoy embroidering on toilet paper---the designs are usually stitch out pretty quickly since they are not dense, and everyone who has gotten one of the rolls I’ve done has laughed out loud when they see it.  It is just something different to do, and is usually a very unique gift—something no one else has given them.  While I don’t stitch on TP often, it is still a fun thing to do.
