Setting the machine to stop at color changes

The machine can be stopped at any time; however, if the machine is stopped while it is embroidering, it is better to go back a few stitches before continuing sewing to overlap the stitching. If the machine stops at a color change, it is not necessary to go back through the stitching before continuing embroidering.

 

Stopping the machine at the next color change

The machine can be set to stop before sewing the next color.

 

  1. While sewing the color before the point where you wish to stop the machine, touch key so that it changes to key.

    Touch [OK] to continue embroidering.
