Couldn't do that design on my little ol' machine. Why don't you ask them at Emb Library what machines they have stitched it out on??
They are very nice there and will answer your questions.
To answer the comment by pennyhal2...if you go the Embroidery Library's home page, there are blue tabs across the top..the last tab on the right says "Order History"..the tab to the left of it says "Help"...I hope the link below works...it should take you to the page that shows stitch counts for machines...
wow thank you xx
If you go to the help Tab along the top, they have a list of max stitches for several types of machine until recently I didn't know it was there..
I don't have a "help" tab anywhere. I tried Q&A, but no help tab there. I'd like to think that I'm not blind, but does everyone else have a "help" tab?
Hi pennyhal2...if you go the Embroidery Library's home page, there are blue tabs across the top..the last tab on the right says "Order History"..the tab to the left of it says "Help"...
To find out your maximum stitch count, load up a design of about 10 000 stitches and then go to your edit screen. Copy and paste that design until your machine shouts enough and then count up the stitches to that point. The only time I've ever exceeded the limit is when I've tried to put several designs in my 200mm square hoop.
I think Sue I have to done the same thing, but got an error message so turned of my machine and then re started lol
Good question. I do not have a clue. I tend to shy away from the high stitch count designs for time only. Go for it! Kay
I love that design too and have no qualms about stitching it out on my Babylock 6 needle. And I keep my machine at 600 stitches per minute.
With its top speed of 1000(?) st/min it will take at least 2 hrs, but that would be no problem for your machine. And those large multi-needle one don't need baby-sitting it - although I prefer to stay within hearing distance..
Oh mops yes I would stay close as well :-)
also wondering how dense this would be ??
It depends on the size , of course, but the EL designs tend to be rather dense as there is a lot of layering to get the beautiful colour details their flowers etc have. Enlarging the design a bit with constant stitch count does help to lower the overal density slightly, but would that still fit your hoop?
