Hello cuties,

Have you ever stopped to consider how many stitches you have embroidered while creating all our projects. Yesterday I had a probelm with my machine (my fault) and while going through the machine info I saw what my actual stitch count was. In the almost three years (end of Oct,) since I purchased my Happy (are you ready for it) I have embroidered almost 45 million stitches. No wonder I am tired lol. Take a ganger and tell us how many you have.

WOW Michelle that is amazing! Makes me wonder how many stitches I have digitised since I started. Impossible to tell really as there are nearly always revisions and alterations that get deleted along the way. I definitely don't stitch as much as I digitise.
Hugs n roses, Meganne

After a lot of looking I eventually found the counter on my Husqvarna Diamond which is 7yrs old but it only does the hours 482 .I wonder what that equals in stitches?Your machine has averaged about 1.25 million stitches per month since you purchased it .

Yes I uess that is about right. The repairman was in yesterday and he told me I was running it to low, 750 - 800 stitches a minute, he says I show be up to 1000 stitches a minute. Youpee I can do it even faster. Told me this machine can work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and still not get tired, just the owner will lol,

I think on the Husqvarna, you can only check the hours and not the stitches, I may be wrong

Yes, on the Husqvarna's you can only read the hours. I think my technician can work that out. Love Chris

That is also a lot of stitching

I haven't take a count in about a year. I now have had 4 machines, one of which I sold with over 35 million stitches. I hope you enjoy another 45 million stitches and complete many more projects.

My 4- needle does not display dtitch count and my Husqvarna machines only counts hours not stitches. 500 stiches per minute equals 30,000 st/hr which is not top speed on either of them. A couple of hours a week does not sound very impressive, the corresponding stitch count far more so.
But 45 million means you have been doing more than just a couple of hours each week!

I wish I knew how to see it on the Janome's My first 300E has been a real work horse and still going strong.

marianb by marianb 29 Sep 2016

I don't think we have one on the 300e, can't find it anywhere.

michemb by michemb 29 Sep 2016
