Isn’t machine embroidery fun. Just spent ages getting my fabric set up on the frame. Taken it upstairs and put the frame down to remove what was in the machine and the frame and fabric popped apart... half an hour gone from setting it up. Then start to sew and discover that I have embroidered the frame and fabric together. Yes machine embroidery is a great way of spending time. 😂

Oh my! I think that all of us have done this at one time or another. Didn't damper my love of embroidery though! It would take much more than that. Thank you for the chuckle! (not meant as a chuckle at your misfortune) I can look back now on my own mishaps and laugh.

Well I know I make mistakes and yesterday it was frustrating that the hoop sprang apart I also laughed

Been there-done that! Some days/weeks that is how it goes for me with everything I attempt. Hugs. Nan

Oh! Caroline, I laughed at your post, I'm sorry. I did that years ago and I patiently unpicked it all. I think Meg said Pauline (nonna57) did it too on a large embroidery and unpicked it. If at first you don't succeed, try, try again! Good luck with it, love Chris

I too laughed. As it stitched there was a different noise so I looked underneath, realised what had happened and took the frame out and proceeded to unpick. I was using my PR with this disaster. It’s now sewn - correctly

Guess we've all been through this at one time or another. So sorry, I know it is frustrating.

Luckily I realised very early into the stitch out

Yep, I agree that machine embroider is so much fun that I need to bring my Elissimo in for treatment. And it is probably my own fault. Vertigo and machinery can be so much fun. Well, it seems we are all practicing patience in too many ways lately. I think my patience grade is failing.

I feel for you. I have only done this once - taught me a big lesson as I do not have much patience

I haven’t learnt from previous experiences. My unpicking skills improve as the years pass
