How do I attach or remove the embroidery frame ?

Attaching the embroidery frame

After hooping the fabric in the embroidery frame, attach the frame to the embroidery machine. Embroidery frame holders A and B are included accessories with this machine. Install embroidery frame holder A when an included embroidery frame is to be used.

  • If the embroidery frame is not correctly attached it may hit the presser foot and damage the machine, or cause injury to the user.
  • When attaching the embroidery frame, make sure that the "start/stop" button is lit in red. If the "start/stop" button is flashing in green, the embroidery machine may start sewing. If the embroidery machine accidentally starts operating, injuries may result.
  • When attaching the embroidery frame, make sure that the embroidery frame does not hit any other part of the embroidery machine.
Before attaching the embroidery frame, check that there is enough thread in the bobbin.

 

Adjust the width of the embroidery frame holder to the size of the embroidery frame, and then attach the embroidery frame to the machine. As an example, the procedure for attaching the small embroidery frame is described below.

Removing the embroidery frame

After sewing is finished, remove the embroidery frame, and then remove the fabric from the frame.

  • When removing the embroidery frame, make sure that the "start/stop" button is lit in red. If the "start/stop" button is flashing in green, the machine may start sewing. If the machine accidentally starts operating, injuries may result.
  • When removing the embroidery frame, be careful that the embroidery frame does not hit any other part of the machine.
  • Do not lift up the embroidery frame holder with extreme force, otherwise it may be damaged.

 

  1. With both hands, grab the left and right sides of the arms of the embroidery frame holder, and then slightly lift up the frame. The pins on the arms of the embroidery frame holder should come out of the holes in the sides of embroidery frame.
