    Louise,
    I too have many designs I keep on usb flash drives and can't pass up their designs when they go on sale. I'm going to have to re-arrange my folders again, rename them. Don't know if I'll do it by the day I ordered them or by group. Emblibrary right now has a cute clothesline that says "Autumn" and it is free and couldn't pass it up. Its the only site I go to and now with the Christmas Club going on its tempting to accrue the points so that one can gain a gift certificate. But I love their designs and always look forward to the new ones every Tuesday. K its been a while. Hope you are doing well!

    Thanks, Louise. I am going slightly insane with the deadline for filing insurance claims coming up fast and furious. We were going to rebuild and have jumped through many hoops and spent tons of money just to get ready to tear the house down ... but I'm now sort of thinking that we might just sell the land and get out. Adding to the fun ... my husband has been diagnosed with an aortic aneurysm and is scheduled for surgery on October 7th.

    I received an email from Ann the Gran and there was a link to information on how to organize embroidery designs. Thought others might find it interesting as well.

    Life is all about choices. We can look back and be forever sad because what was will never be again or look forward to all of the amazing things God has in store for us.

    I have had a machine for several years and used it rarely. If I am embroidering a Bible verse, what do I use for the colon between chapter and verse?
    I have a Brother Innovis 4000D.

    Question about Embird software: I have loaded the trial version, but it seems to be so limited that it's impossible to really tell how it's going to work. For those of you who have Embird, did you do the trial version first, and if so, did you have issues?

    UNLESS I am doing something wrong, which is entirely possible, even likely, there seem to be only a handful of image files I can access. I can't open any of the files I already have on my computer. And worst of all, I can't upload a user's manual unless I have a registered copy. The text tutorials on the website are not helping much since I can't access most of what they are talking about. I would really like to try this out before I spend the money for the full version.

    Hoping someone can help - I have a BL Unity and getting the tension right is killing me. I stitched a pattern - got through the first 30,000 stitches just fine. all of a sudden I start getting bobbin thread on the top. I changed the needle, increased the tension, no go. Decreased the tension, no go. Suggestions???

    So, I went to the Floriani show yesterday and I had so much fun. They had a new person this year, Kathi and she was the funniest and there is no way anyone could have ever fallen asleep in her class. I was doing really well. I knew I wouldn't be buying software because I have the 5D pro and with and my machine still having payments made, no new ones coming. Then I saw the new quilting software and would and did want to buy it so badly. Was very tempted especially after they got my credit approved to shop. But, there was something that I really wanted and I wanted to limit myself, so I used a little self control. Brother has a new scanner out and you can take any design, drawing and scan it into the machine, put a piece of fabric on the mat run it thru the scanner and out comes your cut design; how awesome is that. I'm thinking, how much time it'll save me when I'm doing the happy daisey quilt. Then this morning I'm watching Sewing with Nancy Z and they are doing 30 min doll clothes and I look at the pieces they've cut out, those will fit into my scanner, another time saving feature. It doesn't come out until Oct but the savings was great. I did also buy some stabilizer and a kit for their newest thread, 60 weight, which is great when doing intriqute designs or small fonts, it keeps them looking like they should. I still really want the quilting software but I will wait and also checkout Vikings. The thing that I do like about Brothers is that there is never an upgrade fee and no dongle to worry about. Now I have a credit card for Brother (Tidewater sew n vac) and Viking (Bella's) so I'm set to go. The next two things that I want to get once my machine is paid off is a regular machine to carry to classes since my daughter took off (approved by me) with my Kenmore and the other is a 10 or higher needle machine. The newest one now has the scanner and camera feature on them. Imagine what they'll have next yr when they come around again and my machines are paid off.

    It was great that the designs this yr was different from the ones last yr and so was the thread even though the spools were smaller this yr. I had a good time and learned lots and can't wait for my scanner/cutter that comes with classes. Yeah.
