Thank you for watching the videos I’ve done about machine embroidery! If you have additional questions, I first ask that you go through the playlist of previous vids as I may have answered it already. Because I’m *not* a sewing machine tech / expert I cannot provide 1-on-1 assistance with your machine or guide you through specific issues. Please reach out to the Brother Product Support Center.
