  2. New member with question about a Dial and Sew machine

    by , 10-30-2017 at 01:05 PM
    Just learning to sew and dug out very old sewing machine that was working fine when put away many years ago. Made a costume for a grandchild with basic stitching without problems.

  6. Bernina 200/730 Problem

    by , 10-19-2017 at 06:30 PM
    I have a Bernina 200E that was upgraded to a 730. While trying to stitch a design that I had loaded onto a Bernina memory stick the message " No room in memory and Switch the machine off and on". The action does not clear the machine. However, the memory stick that holds the preset designs will stitch from those designs but not the design that I have added. I should add that I have removed all the preset designs in the machine memory except the fonts. I understand that this machine does ...

I am also concerned that it may have been the batting that contributed to the problem. I am going to throw the whole thing in the washer and if this doesn't work, I will need to throw the whole thing
