FAQs & Troubleshooting
One problem that may occur during embroidery is misalignment of the pattern. Misaligned patterns may result when the fabric is loosely set in an embroidery frame. Make sure fabric is set tightly in the embroidery frame so that it sounds like a drum if you were to tap lightly on the fabric.
