Using the manual color sequence

■ Manually assign thread colors to all
needle bars
By specifying the thread colors used with this
machine, sewing can continue more efficiently
simply by changing the needle bar assignments after
a pattern is selected. With the normal method of
specifying settings, only a maximum of 9 needle
bars can be manually assigned thread colors;
however, with the manual color sequence, all 10
needle bars can be assigned thread colors.
(For details on specifying the settings, refer to
"Reserved Needle Bar and Sewing Speed Settings"
on page 143.)
■ Needle bar number settings
The needle bar used with each thread color can be
• Using the procedure described in
"Reserved Needle Bar and Sewing Speed
Settings" on page 143, the finished
embroidery colors can be checked in the
screen if thread colors are assigned to
thread spools.
In the embroidering settings screen, touch
→ A screen appears, allowing the needle bar numbers
to be selected.
From the thread color sequence display,
select the thread color whose needle bar is
to be changed.
• If the desired thread color is not displayed, use the
scroll bar on the right side to display it.
1 Scroll bar
Touch a number button (between
) to select the number of the needle bar
whose settings are to be specified.
→ The needle bar number for the thread color selected
in step
changes to the selected needle bar
If the needle bar number was specified with
reserved needle bar settings, the color of the thread
spool on the left side changes to the specified thread
color, and the pattern in the pattern display area also
changes to the color of the specified needle bar.
1 Needle bar number specified with reserved needle
bar settings
2 Needle bar set to a different number (needle bar 5)
3 If a color is selected by touching this key, the
machine stops before sewing the selected color.
■ Initializing thread color settings
With the manual color sequence, the thread color
information on the machine can be initialized each
time a new pattern is selected, and then the needle
bars can be assigned. This allows the needle bar
settings to be specified without being affected by the
thread color information from the previous pattern.
Precautions on the manual color
■ When embroidering a pattern
containing 11 or more colors
With the manual color sequence, the machine does
not monitor the timing for replacing thread spools.
Since the machine does not automatically stop and
no message indicating that the thread spool be
changed appears, as with the normal needle bar
settings, follow the procedure described in either
"Stopping the machine at the next color change" or
"Specifying pause locations before embroidering"
on page 140 to set the machine to stop with thread
spools that must be changed.
