    I am just starting a quilt with a horse theme to it. I am going to embroider a horse on some of the blocks and on some others the names of the horses I have had thru out my life. I will do 17 horse blocks to embroider and 8 blocks with names. I have searched and searched for a quilt design that will work with what I wanted to do and found one on the internet this morning. I am so excited!! I have had the fabric for several months and wanted to get started on this but just could not find the design I wanted. I am so charged up about getting to start this quilt. I washed my fabrics today and the last of it is in the dryer. I am going to start embroidering this evening if the weather gets better. It is supposed to storm and I won't have any of my machines plugged in when it is storming out. Anyway, that is my plan. I also have another horse quilt I will do when this one is finished. I found some beautiful fabric with horses on it at a shop in West Palm Beach. I have a stash of horse fabrics I have been collecting and most are nuetral colors but this one is really different. Can't wait to start that one too. And these will be for meeeeeeeee....lol. My daughter will not be happy about that but I will make her one later....if she is good. lol

    I have the Janome MC9700 & had the same problem. I used 2 layers of stablizer & it worked fine no more bobbin thread on the front. Maybe I have the wrong stabilizer???
    I don't know...but it worked for me

    I am new to ME (luv ME) and stay at my machine since I still get jams in the bobbin area. I can hear a 'clunk' sometimes and often notice the bobbin jam or the top thread shredding. As soon as I notice it I stop the machine to hopefully make cleanup easier. I would love to feel confident enough to leave the machine area during the 3+ minute stitching.

    Am I doing something wrong or is this typical? Should I just relax and let the machine stop itself? Thanks.

    I stay in the room but do other things, I have learned to know the different sounds when it is going to mess up. Saves restitching a whole design.

    I have 2 Brother machines. ULT2002D and a Duetta.
    I love to embroider my quilt blocks and then
    I hand quilt my projects so I don't accomplish a large number.

    I have a couple of the older design cards for the Bernina 180E embroidery machine. I was considering selling them on ebay or Craigslist. I have not sold anything on either site and was wondering if anyone has experience selling on either site and would suggest one site over the other?

    I have a Brother pe-150. It was my grandmothers. I can't use the PED software that came with it. Everytime we have ever tried to put it on a computer it gives the blue screen of death. I then have to take the computer in and get it fixed. Not sure why. Has anyone else had this problem?

    quilt'nmomma, Have you tried using the PED software on another computer? If it does the same thing, then it is the software. In either case, I would contact the manufacturer and let them know of the problem. I am sure they would help you out in everyway possible to get you to enjoy PED. I have the PED myself and it works fine.

    Just my thought(s)

    We tried it on my grandmothers computer 2 or 3 years ago and I tried it on mine Monday. Both times it shut the whole computer down and it had to be taken to the shop.

    I strongly contact company that manufacturer the PED and tell them your problem. PED are not cheap to begin with!=(

    I say "GO AFTER COMPANY"! =) Good Luck!

    I have a Baby Lock Ellisimo I love it. I do a lot of embroidery on it and also have other Baby Lock machines that I sew on also. Love, Love, Love, them.
    If you are afraid of your machine, go to a dealer and see if they will help you learn how to use it, that is the biggest part of it. Once you learn it you will love it.
