Thanks for the info Pam.  I am also looking hard at this machine for similar reasons as Ande.  My dealer has given me a heads up that it will be one of the machines on sale on Black Friday.

Thank you, Pam. My dealer does not have it, and if I order it, it is mine. Since I’ve heard nothing negative, I think I will go ahead and buy myself a holiday present:-)

They will be able to help you.

Hi there, Do you know there is a great APP for all questions about stabilizers and embroidery machines?  It is by FLORIANI STABILIZERS free APP..
it is super when you tap on the opening page & see STABILIZER ADVISOR.  You will pull up this page to see the uses.  Also  loo on you computer  for Floriani videos..  
I embroiderer  using  my favorite on bath towels, it is  WET N STICK TEARAWAY. , that way I do not hoop the towel, and get great results, just hoop  & wet, & embroider & after wet to take it off the fabric. 
I hunted  all over for a dealer in my area,  & at big quilt show in Houston I found  RED ROCK  THREADS in Pahrup NV..It seems they do not want to sell to a customers on line, so keep checking  & call around.& maybe someone has an answer to where to purchase Floriani on line .   I have ordered OESD , but I don't think they make a wet & hold product.   .

Re: Serger snarls

Thanks Jim.  It is the definitely closer to the center of the cone than my other colors and may have more twist in it.  I will double check the threading recommendations.

Double check your manual (page 30) for the options. Twisty thread may need to go through both holes. It wouldn't hurt to check the tension by pulling on the thread after it leaves the tension dial in the thread path. There might be some debris in there holding the tension discs open. It's unlikely to be anything to do with the guides. I've seen MANY serger problems in 25 years of servicing them, but never one involving the guides.

I use a stabiliser called Polymesh. I am in the UK and get it from embroideredjust4u.co,uk. The only supplier as far as I’m are in the uk. It is very sort and is left in the quilt.. I will try and attach a photo of a recent quilt made with the embroideries done in the hoop.

I just bought this machine and love it.  It really does go thru a lot of layers effortlessly and it is a solid machine.  You don’t have to worry about leveling out the foot – it just goes thru the layers without hesitation.

Does anyone have any experience with this machine?  I have made a few bags with which my S9 struggles at the end with all the thick layers.  The HD9 looks like it might handle it even if I use vinyl or leather.  There are very few reviews that I have found. The ones I have read are good reviews and so far have seen nothing negative.

Would appreciate any input.

Thank you,

Re: Quilt Blocks

Patricia Ward
 

When I embroider blocks for a quilt, I fuse Pellon  SF 101 to the quilters fabric for the embroidered block. This is a fine interfacing that really doesn’t make the fabric stiff but just gives it a little more body then starching. This is Pellons shirt interfacing. Then I use a medium weight tear away for the embroidery and this gives you a clean finish on the back. I leave the interfacing over the entire block on the back and just sew that into the quarter inch seam. 

This has worked very well for me in quite a few quilts and table runners.

Serger snarls

Pixey
 

I was recently working on a charity pillowcase project for our local quilt store and my 1100D serger was giving me some issues. I was doing a 4 thread safety stitch and it seemed that the two needle threads were tending to get twisted and snarled together between the tension discs and the needles. Presumably this was happening in the guide where they come together and make the turn from going across the machine down to the needles. I was using Maxi Lock serger thread but it is rather old and wondered if that could be playing a factor...though I have kept it in bins and it doesn’t seem fragile. Or it is likely I have a problem with the turning guides and I need to take it in and get my tech to look at it?

Thanks,

Re: Correcting text on IPad and IPhone

Pat
 

Re  the autocorrect to something you want to "fix" when typing see the screenshot below.  In the area just above your keyboard it shows, on the left, what you typed, then two of apple's "corrections."  If you want what you typed, just tap on the word you wanted (above the keyboard).  Otherwise, the word in the center will be used (which can be handy since in my case it knew which word I really wanted)  unless you tap on the third word, the one on the right.  If you tap on any of the three words, you can then correct as desired.  Don’t forget, holding the space bar allows you to move the cursor to exactly where you want!  That was a recently added nifty thing!  
Hope this helps.

Jim —

You describe the sleep/home button technique exactly how it works. If my nails are too short, I can’t press the sleep button at all, as it is below the case.  I don’t have an IPad pencil, but perhaps I should invest. Black Friday is right around the corner. 

I tried the three-finger pinch technique another 20 or so times. Maybe if I do my update to the newest version, it will work.

If by "capture" you mean take a screen shot, there are two ways that I use:

  • Press the SLEEP and HOME buttons at the same time. This usually works, but if the iPad is in a case (all of mine are) the SLEEP button is usually hard to push and you wind up turning off the screen. Then you have to turn it back on, touch ID, face ID, or pass code, and try again. Frustrating!
  • If you have an Apple Pencil (iPad Pro, and 2019 iPad Mini) put the tip of the pencil in the lower left corner, just outside the display. Do a short swipe diagonally with the pencil toward the top right corner and it will snap a picture of the screen. I now use this exclusively.


Re: New embroidery document

It worked like a charm.  I am using Horizon Link.  I could not find the Save As option--didn't know it's in the HL logo on the upper left.  I now have 2 versions of the same design and saved in my design folder.
Thank you so much.

Re: New embroidery document

Carole, 
Do a "save as" under file and then make your name just a little different .. something like bordercombine 1 

That way you will have the two different designs... 1. your original  2. your combined one you made.

Re: New embroidery document

Simple thing to do!
You don’t say which software you’re using but it works similarly in all the softwares that I know of.
Open the design, duplicate it, move it into position, center the whole thing in the hoop you’re using.
Then save it in the same folder the original is in but with a new name. 
For example if the original is ‘Oak Stem’ then name the combined design ‘2OakStem’ Or something that actually tells you what’s different about the new design.

In some software you ‘save as’, in some you ‘export’ the files.

Thank you! I have been experiencing the same issue with trying to change autocorrected words and not being able to get back to the right place in the word or line. I thought it was me! And thank you for describing the issue so well. It’s been making me nuts! Does Apple know about it?
