I am embroidering/appliqueing a large 4-hoop design, where hoop 1 & 2 each have 29000 stitches. I made it through hoop 1 - no problem. On hoop 2 at ~ 16000 stitches the 200/730 went goofy and offset part of the design. Twice I tried to get back to where I left off, after resetting the center point. My problem is that I can't remember how to quickly move through the machine stitches. I can only move 1 stitch at a time. I thought you could move by color sequence, but that just seems to let you see the colors, not actually move to that stitch. Can anyone help me?

You are right, you can move through the colors but you must double tap the

color bar to actually stay on the color where you want to stop. This stumped

me for a while too.

Thank you so much. I'll go try that. You saved me so much time and frustration.

Martaret, also remember that you can nudge the hoop to your correct position. The button to do this is just above (or below) the broken thread icon. It looks like a hoop with arrows in 4 directions. This allows you to nudge the hoop over a little to make sure your stitching is lined up. Good luck

June, Has this happened before with your machine offsetting part of the design? Any idea what is causing it? I have been trying to get this problem fixed on my machine, and my tech says nothing is wrong with the machine. Dealer can't recreate problem, and we have elliminated all the user things of loose hoop, bumping the machine, and so forth. Your the first person I have come across having the same type of problem.

No idea what caused this. This is the only time it has happened to me. What a horrible time to happen. Like you, I didn't do anything wrong, no bumping or loose hoop. To complicate matters, I was using the mega hoop (magna megahoop & borders, so as I was walking through the stitches, the machine had me move the hoop position from 1 to 3 and 3 to 1. And no, the design did not slip in the hoop- the magnets are very strong. I was finally able to reset the hoop center position to where I had written down the original position to be and complete the design.

I'll also have to see about Kathy Alden's hint.

Thanks to Margaret and Kari I have completed the block and will soon post a picture

Hi June,

To quickly move through the stitches you should scroll the lower blue knob of the stitch length(straight stitch) after of course highlighting the motif properties icon(look like a spool on the screen),

Hope this answer your question

Hi June,

I posted before about to move quicklythrough stitches,by using the knob of straight stitch below and high lighting the stitch sequence(look like S) not the properties icon(Spool) sorry for the mistake

XOXO

June, if you want to go through an embroidery pattern rapidly, the quickest is

to step through the colors. To do this, alternately touch first the right

pointing arrow at the end of the stitch color bar, and then touch the center

colored part of the stitch color bar. The arrow allows you to select the next

color, and touching the center of the color bar confirms the selection so the

machine actually goes to that color. If you know for sure which color you had

completely finished, you can touch the arrow to move through all the finished

colors to get to the one where you were stitching or had just finished, then

touch the center colored part of the stitch color bar to confirm to the machine

that you want to move all the way to that color. Either way gets you to a

specific color more rapidly than rolling the knob.

When you have touch the "broken stitch" symbol [Bernina calls it the Sewing

Sequence symbol] and activate the process of moving to find the spot where the

thread broke, if you turn the top multi-function knob, it moves through the

design basically one stitch at a time. If you turn the bottom multi-function

knob, it moves through the design lots of stitches per turn, so it is faster.

This is helpful if you have a one-color design and moving by color is not an

option.

Hope this helps you.

Well, I guess there is never a good time for errors to happen. Real pain getting out bad stitches, then getting back to the right position. I will post what fixes my machine, when that day arrives.

I wish you all the best, and hope you never seeing this problem again.

I have just posted a picture in the Quilts album. The block is Sweet Sixteen designed by Joanne Winn for a class (Embroidered Applique)that I am currently taking at Quilt University. Joanne was kind enough to allow me to post a picture. I highly recommend her courses, you learn so much.

Thanks to everyone who helped get through my machine's untimely decision to go its own way.

Beautiful! I took a couple of her digitizing classes and learned so much nice that she owns Bernina software
