Changing the embroidering position and Adjusting the angle
When the embroidery machine is purchased, it was adjusted so that the beginning of the stitching was from the center of the pattern. Therefore, move the frame and adjust the embroidering position so that the center of the pattern aligns with the needle drop point at the sewing position. If you need to align the embroidering position to the specific point, follow the procedure described in "Displaying the fabric on the LCD when aligning the embroidering position", "Aligning the embroidering position using the built-in camera" or "Aligning the embroidering position using the embroidery positioning sticker". In addition, the angle of the entire pattern can be adjusted if the fabric cannot be hooped evenly within the embroidery frame and the pattern is positioned at an angle on the fabric.

Example: When embroidering a T-shirt
Rotate the pattern 180 degrees. Pass the machine bed through from the waist of the T-shirt, not from the neck, and attach the embroidery frame to the machine. This will prevent the neck of the shirt from being stretched when the embroidery frame is moving.
