Attach a stabilizer material to the reverse

fabric to be embroidered.
It is not necessary to attach a stabilizer mate
rial to fabric whi
is already sufficiently stiff. For thin, knit
and stretch fabric whi
may move in the frame, attach the fabri
c to a non-wov
stabilizer material before embroidering.
The stabilizer material should be fram
ed along with the tab
for the best results.
There are many types of non-woven
stabilizers available on tI
market. The goal of the stabilizer is
to prevent stretch
movement of the fabric. Best results for
stretch, knit or hg
weight fabrics will be obtained by usin
g a light weight no

Its a good idea to place a piece of stabi

01/22/2008
Thin fabrics such as organza or cotton batiste.
After selecting your fabric, place a piece of stabilizer fabric
within the frame beneath the fabric being embroidered.
We also recommend using a spray-on stabilizer first, allow it to
dry or iron to dry then use a non-woven stabilizer with it in the
frame.
Stretchab’e fabrics such as jerseys
Adhere a piece of iron-on stabi!izer material which is slightly
larger than the frame onto the fabric to be embroidered. and
then stretch it over the frame area.
SA517 (X80914-0O1)

/
A stabilizer material that can be torn away without affecting the
embroidering is ideal.
Use the smallest frame possible that can still accommodate the
pattern being embroidered, as this will give better results.

The recommended lower (bobbin) thread is
#60 #90 synthetic thread.
For thin and stretch fabrics which are difficult
to embroider, use non-woven stabilizer.
If embroidering on a thick fabric with stabilizer
(see page 18), it is recommended that a
stronger 90’14 home sewing machine needle
be used.

Caution
• This machine is equipped with a thread breakage sensor. Accordingly, if the upper thread
is
not threaded, the machine will not operate even if the “START/STOP” button is pressed.
In addition, a loud noise which is different from the normal operation noise is generated
by the
needle bar holding mechanism during layout changes. layout change tests and also when
the
embroidery frame travels a lot during embroidery. This sound is normal and is not the
result of
a malfunction.
• It the power goes off during embroidering:
• Turn the power oft and unplug the machine. Damage may occur
if the machine is on when
the power comes back on.
• To start again, while the main power switch is oft, plug the unit in. Then
turn the main power
switch on and select an operation. Refer to page 54, using the “HELP” function to get
back
to the point where the machine went off.
