I was able to embroider 5 quilt blocks, no issues with too dense designs! I first checked each one and reduced all the dense areas, it really worked!



check out the edges of the elephant...see the white bobbin thread that got pulled to the top?!?! It was the very end of the bobbin, once I re-filled it, it didn't happen anymore. Besides the obvious of not using the bobbin when it gets that low, is there anything I can do to avoid this in the future? It was the only time I used gutterman poly thread, all the rest of the designs I used Isacord and Auriful, and did not have these issues except for the elephant.

So glad youwere able to figure out how to change density. Your animals are cute. Does your machine have a low bobbin sensor?

Yes my machine does have a low bobbin sensor, and it tells me with plenty of time to find a good stopping point. This happened before the machine told me the bobbin was getting low.

I wonder if it was the thread?

I wonder if your top thread was getting snagged and pulling the bobbin thread up.

My guess is the elephant might by a digitizing issue. I once did a practice stitch on a Martha Pullen design that had a big gap like that elephant. I had to back into my software and make adjustments to the design to fix it. My guess was that something might have been lost in the translation between formats.

iPad's auto-correct is my enema.

It was something about the thread I think. When I tried to use it again, with a different bobbin thread, it wouldn't pull up the bobbin thread at all, I tried to baste it 4 times, just got a strand of thread on top, then the needle broke!

I put in some different thread, same bobbin thread, no problems!

So weird....

It's not a gap, it IS the bobbin thread that got pulled to the top. On the underside is the top thread, just along those edges. You can see on the ear where I changed the bobbin and it didn't do it anymore!

The white just happened to work with the elephant, so I left it instead of making a new one.
