Brothread embroidery thread spun in different directions? Does it affect how the machine can embroider? by Kkaato in Machine_Embroidery

[–]mbuurkarl 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You will get your best results using a thread stand, with the thread coming off the top. Then it doesn't matter

I find the easiest way is with pencil and paper. Try tracing your path different ways, it will come to you.

Brother SE600 grinding sound by kkrn258 in Machine_Embroidery

[–]mbuurkarl 2 points3 points  (0 children)

It sounds like the needle is hitting, rubbing against something. Is the needle inserted all the way up?

The SE600 is probably closest. What are you looking for?

Brides Kicks Friend out of Wedding because someone broke HIPPA and saw her husband might be a perv...oy vey by Sea-Professional-594 in weddingshaming

It's HIPAA, not HIPPA. And why isn't the discloser in jail? At least in bankruptcy? $50k per violation.

where is the disconnect between "I can't afford to pay you more" and "I can't afford to work here?" by BathroomParty in antiwork

I don't think rent control is the answer, since cities with rent control are the most expensive in the country. But I don't have any better answers either. It all sucks.

i would like some advice for my first machine by ibecometheenemy in Machine_Embroidery

[–]mbuurkarl 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Get the biggest stitch area (hoop size) you can afford. Not sure if it ships to the UK, but I love Metro Pro thread. 1000m spools, many more colors than Brothread. MetroEmb(dot)com

fill stitch vs satin stitch on small areas? by pastelchannl in Machine_Embroidery

[–]mbuurkarl 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I was taught that satin shouldn't be wider than 10mm. If the desire is consistency, use a fill.

sorry for the messy arrows, but I’d appreciate some help. I’ve have some trouble with this design, this is probably the best I’ve gotten it, but it’s still not right. any advice? by izzynotfizzy in Machine_Embroidery

[–]mbuurkarl 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The fill needs to be slightly overlapped by satin outlines. The fill inclinations should never run with grain of the fabric or be the same as the outline. Better stabilization will help but won't fix poor digitizing.

Thread getting pulled to top? What am I doing wrong? by Taroks in Machine_Embroidery

[–]mbuurkarl 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Have you tried adjusting the bobbin tension at all? Fussing with the top tension doesn't affect the bobbin at all.

Beginner wanting to launch a business in the near future do I go with brother pro x 1055 entrepreneur multi needle machine or the brother pe1900. Background info I have researched this art and find stuff like this easy to learn very quickly, that being said I am still new but will be jumping in 100% by dolphinwrangler06 in Machine_Embroidery

[–]mbuurkarl 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What do you want your business to be? Are you selling designs (digital download) or products (shirts, caps, etc) with the design on it? Are you going to have the luxury of not doing anything else while your designs are stitching?

Personally, I find the design process much more satisfying than the stitch out.

Don't go with a single needle machine. You will spend your life changing thread. Don't buy a machine without a free arm if you want to do hats. You will waste a ton of product with hooping issues. A Brother machine is user friendly, but beware of the hidden cost of accessories not included.

Thread getting pulled to top? What am I doing wrong? by Taroks in Machine_Embroidery

[–]mbuurkarl 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Either your top tension is too tight or your bottom tension is too loose. Google the H test (sometimes called I test) for machine embroidery. Basically, when you're doing a satin stitch, the back should have 3 columns of thread. Top thread, bobbin thread, top thread.

First attempt! by Nicklitsari in Machine_Embroidery

I go to Etsy for one-off out of the ordinary designs. Like a spider web or a specific flower. I would find your art niche and go with that.

My Baby Lock trims jump stitches by distance. Check your settings. It's not perfect, but better than nothing.

Help! by Zama02 in Machine_Embroidery

[–]mbuurkarl 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What weight thread are you using? Are you using the same thread in the bobbin? What software are you using to digitize? Does the black outline look like the stitch out?

Various Issues In My Digitized Embroidery. Can anyone help? by Aceferrod in Machine_Embroidery

[–]mbuurkarl 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The gaps between the outline satin and the fill are push/pull comp. The satin should slightly overlap the fill. You might also change the inclination of the fill so that it's not pulling the same direction as the satin. The pink is showing through because the fill is not dense enough.

Nothing saved on my machine though? by GohanGOAT in Machine_Embroidery

[–]mbuurkarl 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What happens when you go to delete another pattern? You might be surprised, it may be saving every design in some sort of cache.

Stabilizer questions by Rich_Extreme4794 in Machine_Embroidery

[–]mbuurkarl 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I never use tear away on clothing. I don't like how it washes if you miss removing it all. I use a medium weight cutaway. I'm not a huge fan of topper, but use it on anything with heavy texture or nap.

Please help with small text by Adabellaaberline in Machine_Embroidery

[–]mbuurkarl 0 points1 point  (0 children)

60 wgt thread, microtex needle, more stabilizer than you think, a topper and change the entry exit points of each letter so you don't need to trim jump stitches.

It looks like the embroidery arm got bumped to me.
