    Congratulations on your machine and the embroidery looks lovely. I got a 630 about 18 mos ago, only learned how to use the em unit about 7 mos ago. Still havn't loaded stuff on my computer yet. don't know how. I have been using it to make quilt labels for my quilt gifts lately.

    I was lucky enough to get a new "used" Bernina 200E from ebay about a month ago. I had a Bernina 180 which I sold today! I really hated to see her go out the door but my 200 is a lot faster. It's been updated to a 730 with the stitch regulator, etc. However, I would love to have their new one which comes out in a couple of months. However, I don't happen to have $12,000 laying around.... :D

    Thanks ya'll, the TP work was a joke for my DH...its laying in the basket next to the throne..I don't think I would want to use it. I'm thinking I'll make 1 for my Dad for Christmas that says " s**t happens" :lol: He has a very weird sense of humor (which I seem to have inherited now that I think about it :oops: )

    Hi there Patti, Glad Izy asked what TP ment, sorry having a DUH moment. Good idea for practice.

    Have found out what is wrong with my machine. Got a tiny little needle hole in the plastic bobbin holder. serves me right for not putting it in right.
    S**t happens. Oooooh thats another one to embroider.. LOL

    Makes nice embroidered labels...... for IRRīs. When you do words, use the hyphen to space out the words. I wondered how to at first, Just in case you hadnīt figured it. Just cut the "thread"hyphen with sharp scissors.

    Elle, I hate that you had the bobbin hole :cry: as my DH says every time I screw something up...we all must pay for our mistakes..LOL Hope you are all better now.

    I was planning to make the labels for the IRR, don't know exactly what it will look like quite yet though. My machine is for dummies...I have a space bar, but did get into that "where is the darn space" thing with my friend when we tried to use hers. I had to call the dealer :oops: :roll:
