I am not new to machine embroidery. I purchased a new machine with a larger hoop size. When embroidering over previously stitched pattern - ie ribs on a dragons wing - the thread fouls and I get birds nests and loops. Any ideas.

I would use a larger needle, at least a 14 to go over previous stitching. A quilting needle may help, as they are designed to go through multiple layers. This may be all you need. Double-check the threading and tension as well.

Thanks for the advice. I am using a 14 needle and tension works fine on single embroidery. some one has suggested I speed up the sewing - any thoughts on that. I sew quite slowly normally.

No to the increase of speed, but do be sure to use an embroidery machine needle. Titanium coated EM needle may help the needle slide through the stitching. Slight increase in the size of the design may also help.

What type of thread are you using and what are you embroidering?

thanks to you and a Singer Consultant ( via email ) we have about 95% eradicated the nesting problems. I am using a SCHMETZ needle and the speed is as low as possible plus I have enabled the stitch limiter. My software does not give me the option of a less dense stitch.
I still have to try a few other things - but for now I am happy just to be able to embroider !!! Thank you.
