MORE MRS. SANTA’S - you won’t believe the trouble I had with the 2nd Mrs. Santa. None of the written instructions matched the numbers on my machine for placement of the appliqué. I have written to them requesting help.

In the meantime I fiddled around with stopping/Starting my thread etc. and placing fabric where I thought it would work. So what happened - I forgot to sew her nose! So late this arvo I started it again and the same problem occurred the written instructions don’t correlate to my numbers on the Appliqué sections. As I said above I wrote to them and can’t wait to hear back. I took a photograph the one without a nose and the second one is still in the hoop, not finished yet.
We had 10 here for dinner, so I had a busy arvo!!! Love Chris



Hi Cuties, then there were Three! I’ve finished 2 Santa panels since “Mrs. Santa”. These are huge made in the 8x12 hoop.
In hindsight I wish I’d sewn out the 5x7. Never mind they will be made into something nice. Love Chris

Hi, on Kiwi Blog there is a good explanation why thread sequence is wrong on your machine. I download VP3, but use Artista software, and that is the problem. Hope it will help you.

I spoke with the customer service people most of Friday afternoon and my Husqvarna software Premier 2+ has an extra box that has a ticked box with color sort in it and I've never noticed it. I have the option to do it on my main page and don't use color sort anyway. So trial and error we found out the problem It was all sorted out Friday last week. Thanks, love Chris

Hi Lynnette, they all worked well once I had found out what was happening. The customer help staff explained it was a color sort issue. I never use color sort on my Premier 2+ software, but when I go to EXPORT the design a box comes up and guess what, there is another little box with a TICK symbol in it? So once I unticked that symbol, I've had not more problems. Love Chris

I just love these but yes, frustrating when a written instruction is not written precisely. I am one of these people that goes by 1, 2, 3 and what to do, also like pictures included to get it right. If I have a problem then I know a novice will have a real problem. I know sometimes just an oversight but sad to buy a pattern, a very great one at that and numbers on instructions be off. But you have managed to get them stitched out so cute and I wouldn't have even missed her nose.

Hi Patti, I wrote to SP and they told me to re download it, so I did. Then I thought I might run it through my "Real Player" which is part of my Premier 2 to see where each section is and each size 5x7, 6x10 and 8x12 all did the same thing. So I've just written again!!

What fun! I know there is a lot of work (and fabric, thread and time) in each panel, but these are fun. I hope we will get to see the something nice when you finish all of the panels.

More Santa’s, they are lovely. Went to next town this morning to get more fabric for my Santa’s and the shop was shut. V sad, better organisation required on my behalf. 😂
