Edge To Edge design

edited August 2012 in HQ Pro-Stitcher
I have new Fusion with pro-stitcher and am working on edge to edge design and bobbin ran out but pro-stitcher continued to quilt. How do I get the Pro-stitcher to reset at point where thread ran out on design. I put the needle where I would like it to start stitching but what do I do next.....and does nayone know where that info is in the manual or any place else to find a step by step instruction.


  • What versison of Pro-stitcher are you running? The lastest version 12-08-0013 has some added functionality with this issue.
  • I have a Prostitcher and have problems with edge to edge designs. I am able to input the design for the whole quilt, quilt the space for the first throat space without any problems. The problem starts when I have to advance the quilt with the needle down and when I go to start it again the pattern jumps leaving a whole row unstitched and it goes to the second row. What am I doing wrong? Can anyone help?
  • When you are done quilting the first row, cut your thread. Move the machine to the left. Put needle down in next start point (zoom in to make sure you are right where you want to be). Drop your needle. Then advance your quilt. Place your clamps back on. Now hit the cancel icon. Go to Design, then to reposition and touch Start Point. Then stitch down your sides. Then touch run. It will take you to your next row, perfectly. The mistake I was making was that I was stitching down my sides before I was repositioning the next start point. Hope this helps. I watched the CD "Getting Started- Quilt Edge to Edge Designs" very closely to see my errors.
  • Thank you Quiltinginthekettles for the info .I too have repeatedly watched the video over and over but kept missing the point. Singingquilter Australia
  • Newbie here and having reposition troubles. The needle and the crosshairs are not in the same place. I made sure I was in the right spot to restart, reset the start point at the beginning of the row, then used the jump arrows to put me a few stitches before I truly needed to restart. Hit Start Point twice to make sure I lock it in, and either the machine stitches off at the wrong place of the design, or moves and starts way off!!!
  • CQuiltz,

    I am sorry that you are having problems with your HQ Pro-Stitcher. Make sure your motors are connected. Check and see if both your crosshairs are moving as you move your machine. Press the Half Stitch button at the top of the screen and see if that works. If that doesn't work then you know your motors are not connected. If your motors are not connected then go into Settings, Advanced, Communications then press the button at the bottom of the page that is on the right hand side, that says, Reconnect Machine. You may have to press the button that says Reconnect Motors.

    Once the machine is reconnected then you will need to Resposition your design. Place the needle at the start of the row you are working on. Then go to Reposition and press Start Point. Now your crosshairs and needle should be at the start point of the row you are working on.

    Once you have the design repositioned move the needle to the point you want to start stitching and go to Quilt, New Start/End and press Start Auto twice. Now you should be at the correct place to beginning your quilting.

    If this doesn't work sometimes you need to reboot the Pro-Stitcher. Before you do this make sure you have the design saved.

    Make sure that you turn on the quilting machine first then the Pro-Stitcher.

    If you are still having problems please call our Education team at 1-877-697-8458, M-F, 10-5 MDT. We would love to help you.

    Good luck,
