Hello, is there any such thing as an adapter so that this can use a USB instead of the floppy disks?

Has anybody upgraded to a newer hat jig? I cant get my machine to match the sewing field.

Hi Jana, I think your question might also be solved by Earl's comment below. Look for a little silver micro-switch located near the back left of the hooping arm when you switch to the hat jig.

Hello, I am trying to make a shirt for the first time but the machine keeps telling me to use the bigger frame even though I changes the size of the pattern. I also want to know is there a newer version than 2.00?

we have had our EMB6 machine for close to 15 years. I have had the same problem as you I think. When you are switching hoops, there is a little microswitch located to the back left of the hoop holding arm. You have to use the thumb screws to adjust the size of the arm to hold the hoop. Look closely and you will see this little silver switch. It is supposed to detect the size of hoop you are using so it can center the needle . That sometimes gets stuck and it thinks you have a different size hoop and it wants to realign to an off center position. Simply just move that switch with a small screw driver, or tool, then try it again. It should work, but if not, move that switch again and try again. Hopefully this will work for you

Hi Ayiesha. Babylock Palette is up to version 11. Is that what you were asking about? The EMP6 machine is not listed on Babylock's current updates page; I have not been able to find any reference to a newer version for the machine itself.

I've recently heard from a number of owners of older Babylock machines that the machine keeps telling them the hoop is either not attached or is the wrong size. I have made several suggestions to them, but I have never heard back that any of it was helpful.

Some of my thoughts were:

1. One possibility is the size of frame being used when the design was created and saved in software, versus the size of hoop that the design will fit in. Perhaps if it was saved with a different frame in the software, it is now looking for that frame size even though it technically doesn't need it. Two ways to check: 1. Re-open in software and verify the frame size being used while saving. Transfer the newly saved design to your machine. 2. Put a different size hoop on the machine (however many hoops you've got) and see if any of them change the er

2. Use your manual and follow exactly the hoop set up instructions

3. attach all of the embroidery parts, including the hoop, before switching to embroidery mode. (if that's possible with your machine)

4. is the design oriented the same way as the hoop? I mean, if the five inch side is the vertical one on the design, and the vertical side of the frame is only four inches, that might cause the machine to think that the wrong hoop is attached.

5. I've heard of files being saved in software in "edit mode" and then not being stitchable, even though they are your stitchable format. Does that make sense to you? It's not a software that I have personally used, and I'm not sure on that.

6. Another thing: only one USB device can be plugged into the USB hub at a time. If you happen to have anything other than the design stick in it, remove the other thing.

If you can find a Babylock machine dealer, or call the Babylock support number, 1-800-313-4110 that may be your best bet.

could you send me the manual for the emp6

Deborah did you find a manual for your emp 6 machine.

Heather B.

No, we can't, Deborah. We do not carry embroidery machine manuals. Unfortunately, EMP6 manuals appear to be hard to find at this time. My best recommendation would be to keep an eye on sites such as Ebay for a used copy.

I would be sooooo happy to either buy a copy of the manual or have you thought of putting on zip drive? I bought my machine used and there are no manuals. My Baby Lock dealer can't acquire a copy

I would love to have a copy. I just acquired a EMP6 from my school. I use a 4 thread babylock at home that I have had for 15 years and would not trade it for anything, I am looking to do shirts and hats for my school.

Hi, Gloria. EMP6 manuals seem to be getting hard to come by. Your best bet would be to keep an eye on sites such as Ebay for a used copy.

Hi Reba,

I haven't seen Fast Frames, but I understand they are metal. I suggest testing a magnet on one. If there's sufficient steel content in the Fast Frame bottom for a magnet to stick, then I believe you could use a snap hoop top with it. Snap hoops have their magnets in the top portion.

Then the next question would be to figure out which size(s) of snap hoop to start with.

And just as a tip, personally, I recommend the Monster variety. It is so much stronger that it works on many more things than the regular snap hoop. For instance, I'm not sure I would trust a thick towel to regular snap hoops, but I would use the Monster snap hoop without hesitation. I have both, and it's the Monster I default to.
