      I need some help and advice please, I have embroidered one of the necklines and also a spring sewinf block. Some of the stitches are coming undone when the jump stitches are removed. How do I rectify this? Thanks

      Lotdotts1, apparently knots are not being tied between the jump stitches. I would use Fray Check before cutting the jump stitches to keep it from unraveling. Maybe someone else will have a solution for you. Fray Check can be purchased at any fabric store, JoAnn's, Hobby Lobby, or other places.

      I have had lots of problems with this as well. I cut the jump threads as close to the part it starts to stitch out and then pull the thread to the back side and knot it, if the tread is long enough. With some of the older designs, I leave the jump threads in if they are not very long. If the digitizing program does not allow the digitizer to program for locking stitches before the jump, this will happen. I did a big beautiful quilt when I first started machine embroidery, after just a short time the stitches came out so much the design looks terrible.

      Sounds to me they were not digitized with locking tie off stitches...unfortunate. I suggest you send a support ticket to Rob and ask if the set can be re-worked by the digitizer to fix this problem. Or, if you have software, you could probably add them yourself...are the digitizers the same person for both sets?

      The designs go back to 2009, so not sure that they had tie off knots back then or not and I'm not sure that the digitizer is still doing any digitizing.

      I am sure that there were tie off stitches back then. Don't know who the digitizer was but you are right, might not be still available...

      Thank you dragonflyer. I will look to see if it is the same digitizer. I do have Embird and still learning all about it. I was not sure if I was allowed to adjust it. I could have a look. Can I ask what a Support Ticket is? Sorry I live in UK. Thanks for all you help.

      Ok thanks, I am going to try another couple of designs to see how they work maybe on my other embroidery machine.
