    to me when I am trying to make a template! I have read from several of you that sometimes you sew (without thread in the needle) to mark patterns...so I thought I would try that today. Do you also take the bobbin out?? I know I sound ridiculously stupid, but when I tried it...my machine did nothing but beep at me and tell me to "check my top and bottom for broken thread or empty bobbin". I did have a bobbin in there, but it was an empty one. Can I do this on my Bernina??? or do I just need to go back to my old Singer, Susie???

    Yes you can do it Sandpat. But you have to turn those alarms "off". Go into your settings and change them. Otherwise, it will not be a happy camper and will keep beeping at you....(Don't forget to change them back!) :-)

    Yes, and I ashamed to say that since I got the Bernina...Susie ( my trusty Singer) has been in hiding. :?

    Patti, my Janome does this, I staple papers together with a printed version on top, stitch on the lines, but my machine will only do 8 stitches before it stops and tells me blah de blah de blah....I resorted to use my other dinky machine which is not computerised :lol:
