[amayausers] Re: secrets to hooping a visor?

MessageWhen you hoop your caps and visors, do you have the teeth dig into the 
insection of the bill and the cap or do you use the stitch line on the cap 
front as a guide?
Maybe that's why I was struggling with the hooping?

  LuAnn,
  Just finished a gob of OTTO visors. The 1st thing I noticed was that when 
hooping them the sweatband is thicker than those on regular caps. They are 
tough to get under the little guide on the WACF. By starting at one side or the 
other I was able to get them to slide under then I could slip them around to 
get them centered. Sewing field in real small, keep this in mind. After I got 
the 1st one hooped I noticed the retaining strap was not aligned very well, the 
visor was pushed too far onto the WACF. I took the top of the visor and gently 
pulled it back so the strap was even. Did not clamp the sides, just let them 
float. Sewed 76 of them with no issues/lost goods. Hope this helps.

    Is there a trick to hooping visors? They do not hoop as easily as a cap.
    If anyone knows any tips, I sure would love to hear them!

    Thanks...

      Ed,

      When my customers tell me all I have to do is put the shirt on and hit 
start I just give a big grin and tell them "yeah, something like that".  It 
makes me chuckle :)

        Debbie,
            Whatever you do, know that embroidery is a trade that takes years 
to get really good at.  Not unlike many others.  If you are on a fence (so to 
speak), consider how much time you will be willing to devote to continued 
training- not only this one training class you will be taking.  And this 
includes all those late nights spent sewing, tweaking, sewing, tweaking, 
sewing, tweaking,....  if you know what I mean.  We've had some customers of 
ours comment .. "That's all you do.. push the green button and the machine does 
all the work.  How neat!"  I wanted to go crazy at that point but I held back.
            If you do wind up getting out of the business, I wish you luck in 
what ever you decide to do.
            Oh yeah, where are you located.  Folks on the list will want to 
know.
        Take care,
        Ed Orantes

            Hello to all!

            My name is Debby and I own a home based embroidery business.  I own 
TWO Amaya machines bought in July 2003.  This is my first "posting " to this 
web site and I have been reading every posting trying to learn as much as I can 
about the Amaya's.  Although I own the equipment I have only recently started 
trying to learn the embroidery side of the business.  My partners were 
responsible for doing the actual embroidery in the past and are no longer 
involved in the business (sigh)...so it' pretty much a "one woman" show at the 
moment.  

            I am trying to decide whether to sell the machines or to "learn the 
trade" myself.  I am absolutely OVERWHELMED by what I have to learn in order to 
continue this business.  So, if anyone is interested in acquiring my equipment 
I would definitely consider the offer.  I am scheduled to attend a training 
session this week.

            In the meantime...

            I would like to know how I can tell if I have the newer hook 
assembly that has been mentioned in this e-mail.

            Secondly, I struggle with thread breaks on PIQUET shirts (60/40 
blend).  I can sew out the same logo on denim or backing or twill without a 
problem but as soon as I try to put a simple two line text logo on this 
particular shirt I have MULTIPLE thread breaks despite adjusting tension, 
needle depth, changing needles, changing thread, etc.  

            I have not tried using Solvy on piquet...I'm going to try that next 
to see if that helps.  

            Any suggestions on why I would have numerous thread breaks on a 
piquet 60/50 blend shirt but not on another material would be most appreciated.

            I have already learned a great deal from your postings.  Thank you. 
 Perhaps one day I will be able to give back to the group.

            Debby

            I reduced my thread breaks by 90% when I changed the hook assembly. 
It's amazing how much smoother it stitches now. Wish I had known to do it a 
long time ago.
