Step 4: Use your arrow keys and reposition the embroidery design so it is in the upper, left-hand corner of the frame on the screen. Leave a little space between the design and the edges of the frame on the screen. You do NOT want the design butted up against the top and left edge.

Prepare your embroidery hoop, select your thread(s), and go to the ready-to-embroidery mode and start stitching! If your machine keeps starting/stopping for thread changes or from design to design, let me know and I'll post the page number of the manual for continuous color (multiple colors) or single color option (one color). Or maybe a blog post will be easier . Until then...
Happy Sewing and Embroidery!
