I noticed the talk about threads. Since I am new to all this I would be interested in the pros and cons of the threads everyone is using. I have only been using Sulky so far and it gets expensive. I would like to see some comments on this...Thanks

No, Anna, it isn't just you. This site is relatively new to all of us. I buy my thread from Metroem.net and radiant threads. I usually pay less than $1 a spool including shipping and I love it. It shines like no other I have seen. Where are you located??

Is it just me? Every time I come to stitchchat I find a new area to explore and forget how I got there. Everyday is so new and exciting!
Got my order yesterday and had fun organizing all my new threads. I was amazed how quickly it came from dbs as I just placed the order July 30th.

Talk to Jan about continuos designs, I believe it was she who told me she loved doing it... of course, I could be wrong!

I'll see what I can come up with... what are you wanting to "not hoop"?.. lol
Comment by VelvaDawn on July 31, 2009 at 10:25pm
that would be great I am one of those people that has to read it and see it because sometimes stuff is really hard to hoop lol makes me so darn mad
Comment by TinkerTins on July 31, 2009 at 10:04pm
Sorry VelvaDawn...lol sometimes I am slow.... I'm not sure if you can find online instructions on how to do it... I just sorta learned by trial and error... I don't know if this is the "right way" ... but this is how I do it... I choose the type of stabilizer that is suitable for what I am going to embroider on. then I hoop only the stabilizer... I use spray adhesive and spray the hooped stabilizer... then place the item/fabric accordingly.. I hope that helps... if you would like a couple of pictures I'm sure I could come up with a couple for you... to show you how I do mine... Hope that helped!!
Good luck,
JJ

Heya, sorry Shari... I've not done any continues boarders... I don't know anything about that... there must be a video online somewhere to help learn... I do a lot of stitching without hooping, but have never heard of anyone stitching without a top hoop ("not hoop with the top hoop"... that one is beyond me too.... sorry... I have a 'thing' for putting designs in the corners of items...hubby's hankies, napkins.. that sort of thing... So sorry I couldn't help out...

Yaaa Velvadawn. It will be nice for your family and nice for your mother to be independent again.

Welcome Tubby, Hope that they got your machine fixed for you. I haven't found Brothers very helpful when I have had problems with their Brother's dealer in Rapid City, so it doesn't surprise me that they are taking a bit. The Brother's dealer in Rapid city had my machine, took it apart and cleaned it and when I got it back, it worked for a couple weeks and broke down. Since the warrantee was just done, I took it into the Sewing Center and found that when the Brother's dealer cleaned my machine he didn't regrease the insides. When I called Brother's up and complained about their dealer, they asked if I was charged for the oiling along with the cleaning. ??? Doesn't oiling come along with cleanings automatically? Other then that I have had positive experences with my Brother's.
