It is great that you where able to save and finish your Towel Don't be to critical what it looks like Nobody else will notice Stay safe hugs Ursula
Sorry to hear about all your troubles! When I do a towel, I do not hoop the towel, only the stabilizer and then pin the towel all around the embroidery area. Towels can damage your hoop and put strain in the screws. Happy embroidery
That is what I do too, not just for towels but everything
Been through all that myself Sarah. What a pain!!. Thing is when it usually happens it is on something I am doing for someone else on something they purchased. Bummmmer!
Lillian, you are so right that was exactly what happened
I feel your pain...been there done that...glad you were able to save the towels...
It was a good save but my heart was in my mouth I was in such a state
I have had that kind of week also. Started monogramming some towels for a housewarming gift and the first turned out perfectly. The second looks fine except for the black grease that somehow appeared when I turned my back on the machine! Tried using Dawn but to no avail. Also when I look at the design it's off center. Guess I will have to (hopefully match) get another towel. Is it a full moon (LOL)?? Hugs. Nan
Hi Sarah, been there, done that. Threw it away and began again, did the same thing again, threw it away and third time lucky and that's with the Santa letter hanger!!!!!!!!!!! AAAAGGHHHH, Love Chris
Yikes! I've had that happen and sometimes I just have to throw out the project and start over.
When it happened to me, the thread stopped pulling off the spool and, because of that, the thread tension caused the thread to pull the stabilizer right up off the hoop taking the hoop with it breaks the needle. So, if you haven't, I'd suggest rethreading everything too.
I have also had a thread catching in the spool and doing quite some damage. I was lucky to be able to turn off immediately
What a naughty machine! It must have missed the memo that it acts up only when you have left the room. I'm so glad you had the patience to take out all of those missed stitches and re-hoop to almost 100% perfection. That is a talent and shows your tremendous experience.
Karen, you are too kind. It was my fault entirely . I will make sure that it never happens again
I do think that our machines have a mind of their own and throw the odd hissy fit to keep us on our toes. I look forwards to seeing your finished creation that caused the problems. Congratulations on getting the better hand and completing the work.
I was in such a state. These are towels that do not belong to me. When I post, I will not be telling you which towel gave me trouble
