I recently got a Brother SE-400 and I love it! I make patches and I managed to make a few before I started to have issues. The original design is below. My first try went like this... (if you can't tell, it's bent like a bowl) This is what it looks like when I flattened it using my fingers... (there's still considerable puckering around the text) Then I tried it again, this time with a lower tension. It started out fine, but by the time it got to the yellow (the third color), it was puckering again. When I tried to do the black, it had puckered so bad the needle was only going down in one spot. It was unable to move. I used 3 layers of iron-on stabilizer and I sewed them together in a desperate attempt to stop the puckering. It's not necessarily that the fabric around it is puckering, its that the actual DESIGN is. I use medical tape to keep it from sliding around in the hoop. I still have puckering!! What should I do?
So my Brother SE400 is all of the sudden not filling in the letters it embroiders correctly. Hoping that maybe by the pictures you might be able to tell me what's happening. Some details: I've successfully used this design before (third picture of red initials is correct). I bought the font off of etsy. The only difference between the red initials and my incomplete black ones is that I changed thread brands from Coats & Clark to Sewology (Coats & Clark is a cheap brand from Walmart, Sewology is supposed to be nicer?). I was using a 4 on the tension dial and also changed to 3 and 2 in trying to fix the problem. Thoughts? Surely someone else has had this problem and recovered? I've posted the front and back (in black), as well as my successful use of the font in red.
I am need of help ASAP. Order due tomorrow. We are sewing a design that is letters PRMS and had it custom digitized. Upon sewing on polo shirts inside the R and top part of the S it is breaking fabric down and causing a hole on both letters. I have changed the tension and backing but still doing it. We have sewn this same design on dress shirts with no problem. Digitizer is saying that it is not the file. Appreciate any suggestions anyone has. Thanks
