    Question for Brother PE-770 owners

    Do any of you know if this machine has a basting function where you can baste around the edge of the hoop to help stabilize the fabric? I've looked all through the manual and can't find anything but I keep hearing that it has this function. I'm hoping some of the great people here on this board will have an answer.

    I did a search and found this on Eileen's Machine Embroidery Blog. http://dzgns.com/blog/2012/07/whats-...r-bucket-list/

    I didn’t think I had a basting stitch either on my Brother PE770, but one day was looking around & when I went to the built in “frames” I was to pick the frame & then a stitch for the frame. Low & behold there was a basting stitch, so I picked the rectangular one for my 5 x 7 & the square one for my 4 x 4 hoop & they worked just fine. Learning new things all the time about my machine.

    Hope this helps. I had the BL Ellure Plus and it was great.

    Thanks for the info. This was exactly what I was looking for. I'll check it out on my machine. You would think they would put that in the manual.
