I just paid a visit to my local dealer. First of all, YAY, they are now stocking the Floriani embroidery products and I was able to pick up a couple of packages of the chrome embroidery needles. Secondly, I was told that the most likely cause of my needles being bent was that the thread was catching somewhere. The owner said she has never seen a needle "bent" another way. Not to say it's not out of alignment after 3 broken needles, but with that said I DO remember that I was using a large cone of Isacord white, threading it up through the tall thread holder, down through the hook on the right on the machine and threading it normally from there. I also read when doing a lengthy design, so wasn't watching the thread. I will try another snowman design (dense) with a small spool of Isacord to see what happens. She said the "clacking" was the needle hitting the foot

FWIW, I use a tall separate thread holder and I have never run the thread through the loop on the top right of my 780. I believe that is for winding bobbins while embroidering. I take the thread directly from the tall thread holder to the first regular thread guide on the back left side of the machine and never have had a problem

i use the tack down stitch, but also use light weight heat bond and i cut my fabric as close to the size as i need so i do not have as much to cut away

This is just fantastic! It is so unique and so beautifully done! It must have taken a very long time to not only embroider the ladies on the skirt fabric but to also make the test embroideries first. Great work!

Thank you! It did take many days to do the embroideries but it was fun seeing them come to life.Martina :-}Enjoy My Sewing Blog ---Links-Are-Forbidden--- Apr 27, 2014, at 8:31 AM, caroledoyle@... wrote:

Martina,

I admire your work, not only for the completed embroideries, but for your patience in recording all the steps along the way and creating such a detailed tutorial! I'm not sure that I would have the patience for this any more, especially since I'm 5' even and I have a hard time getting clothes to fit me...I'm afraid I'd have to make it for someone else!

Thank you so much! It does take longer to sew a project because of taking pictures, but it is worth it because of people like you. Thank you!!
