While prepping the last video shoots for the Baby Lock Destiny 2, I found something specific in the manual, that made me slap my head.
Basically, for the settings screens, screens 1, 2, and 3 are specifically sewing settings. Yep. I could have made one video showcasing all three of those screens. Covered more territory, much quicker. So screen 1 covers presser foot height, pressure, and stitch width. Screen 2 covers needle position, type of stitch, and multi-function foot controller. Screen three covers more presser foot functions, automatic functions, and reinforcement priority for stitching.
So then screens 4, 5, and 6 are general settings.
Screen 4 is for needle position when machine has stopped, machine volume, brightness of display, and light over the needle/sewing area, and bobbin/thread sensor options. Screen 5 is display. Machine shut off, screen savers, spool stand, calibration. Screen 6 is purely functional. How many stitches you’ve sewn, internal machine number for your machine and embroidery unit, and which program version is currently on your machine. That’s it. See…4, 5, 6 are general machine settings.
And finally, screens 7, 8, and 9 are Embroidery Settings.
The embroidery settings I had to defer pretty much to later. I have used the machine for embroidery, but every single option said “See page…” for instructions. Screen 7 you select embroidery frames, thread color display, speed during embroidery, tension, and foot height. Screen 8 is for display functions during embroidery. Inches vs. mm. Background color, stitch width, brightness. Screen 9 utilizes the machine camera function, which I am stupid excited to learn about. I may even try in-hooping a design mid-stitch just to see if I can get it back using the camera function. Maybe. I might not be that brave.
And those, in a nutshell, are the settings screens for the Baby Lock Destiny 2 machine. Which sews like a dream but is still intimidating. I’m scared to yell at it. You know, when something doesn’t go as planned. Ok, maybe that’s just something I do.
