There are a number of reasons you would want to have a Baby Lock products registered:
All of the Baby Lock multi-needle machines (EMP/BMP6/BMP8/BMP9/BND9/BNT10 /BNT10L) can read a design in .pes or .dst format. The design(s) can be sent to the machine directly from the computer via the special cable that came with your machine; you can put the design(s) on a floppy, an embroidery card or USB stick-depending on which model you have.
DST (tajima) embroidery files do not have colors assigned to the sections. You can go to your embroidery software or in your machine and change the colors the design if desired. Remember you can put any thread color in your machine.
Click here for a useful chart that contains bobbin thread recommendations for all Baby Lock embroidery machine models (EMP/BMP6/BMP8/BMP9/BND9/BNT10/BNTL). We feel using the recommended bobbin thread will give you the best results.
The jumpthreads are from the hoop moving in different areas of the design when using the same color thread. The machine is cutting the top and bottom thread at the end of each color.
Hoop your fabric and stabilizer as you would normally. Then take a piece of sticky stabilizer and put it under the hoop and wrap it around and over the outside edge if the hoop. The will help keep your fabric taut.
