    VE2200 help

    I donít know where else to post this so I hope you will bear with me. I have a Brother VE2200 embroidery machine which I really donít use a lot so I am not as familiar with it as I should be. I am trying to add a basting outline to a design. I can follow the manual up to the point where it tells me to select the basting stitch icon - but there is no icon on the screen to select. I hope this makes sense for someone! Any help is appreciated.

    Can you post a screen shot of your machine?

    Is there an "edit" button on the screen? Select it a second time. The icon may appear. It is almost as if you have to edit the edit.

    Do you have a preferences page on the machine? Check through the settings to see if there is a "distance" around the design that you need to set.

    PS: the box may be a pink flower with a stitch around it. It may not be in color though.

    It may also be an upgrade for the machine. Do you have a local dealer to ask about the button?

    Check this video. I can't see the page number but it looks like you should have the button.

    Thanks, Rhonda! I had the machine in embroidery mode and it needed to be in edit mode for the baste icon to show up. I didn’t realize that just adding a basting stitch outline is considered editing the design I really do need to become more familiar with my machine. Thanks again and standby for more questions! Color me embarrassed.

    You are welcome!

    Trust me! That is one of the hardest buttons to find for others too. Some of us at the LQS had troubles with it on our Dream Machines. We now know it well. LOL!

    You need to be in embroidery edit function to do basting stitch
