How to Use This Blog

Since we have lots and lots of videos here, you will need to know the best way of finding what you are looking for. Each post has the video(s) of the topic it is about. Many times there will be more than one video that is a continuation of the previous one. These videos will be posted together within the same post. To find what you are looking for, either use the search box or the list of categories posted in the right column.

Since the IQ system is constantly evolving, please keep in mind that some of the older videos may show features that have been replaced by newer ones.

Picture pattern - loading images.

A quick video showing how to load images onto iQ for picture pattern.
The pictures you load should be either .jpg or .png
I do not demonstrate the different modes of pattern generation. There are many variables so a take a few minutes to explore all the modes. The release notes for software version 12.10.13 have some very clear illustrations showing the different modes. Further changes can be made by altering other options on that page.

'Distance from needle' button on adjust page

This video shows how to use the distance from needle button when adjusting a pattern. It allows a panto to be sized accurately to fit in the remaining space on a quilt without having to cut the threads and move the machine.
When I am adjusting the dashed right hand edge, ofcourse, I could have simply dragged the dashed line into position but using the keypad is much faster and more accurate.
