"+" or "–" key. Increase the value when using the same
threads on the bobbin and needle.

The low bobbin thread warning level can be adjusted with

e Maximum embroidery speed
The maximum embroidery sewing speed can be set from
400 to 800 spm in 100 spm intervals by pressing the "+"

control slider even while running the machine.)
Reduce the sewing speed when sewing patterns with
narrow zigzag stitches that tend to warp at high speeds.
r One stitch stop on/off
When this function is turned on, the machine sews one
stitch and stops automatically so that you can bring the
bobbin thread up before sewing.
t Consecutive color grouping on/off
If an imported stitch data file or design files of a pattern
combination contain consecutive sections in the same
color, these sections are automatically grouped together
as one section when opening the file or saving the pattern
combination as the file or going to the ready to sew
window. This function is invalid when combining the built-
in designs and external sourced designs.
Turn this option off if you do not wish to group the
sections together.
