The Memory Craft 350E makes it easier than ever to do professional looking embroidery on a stand-alone machine.
With the ability to import designs via USB, more accurate editing tools, a faster microprocessor, and an automatic thread cutter, the MC350E is a step up from its predecessor. But like the popular MC300E, it does beautifully precise embroidery without the need for a bulky, external attachment.
- Auto thread cutter trims top and bobbin thread at the push of a button and at the end of each color during a stitch out.
- USB port and ATA PC card slot. Bring in designs using a USB memory key, flash memory card, or from a PC Design Card.
- Choose from four different hoop sizes. From the optional 2" x 2" Free Arm Hoop up to the optional 9.1" x 7.9" Giga Hoop.
- Compatible with Digitizer and Customizer lines of embroidery software.
- Create sophisticated embroidery layouts without software. Designs are easily imported, edited, and moved to the desired position using the controls on the backlit LCD touch screen.
- Rotation can be controlled in 1 degree increments.
- Design resizing, which ranges from 90% to 110%, can be scaled 1% at a time.
- Faster onboard processor, enabling MC350E to complete onboard functions in a fraction of the time.
- The motion of the upper shaft is now smoother and quieter thanks to the addition of a new system of bearings.

Fran, whenever thread gets caught anywhere in the thread path or skips stitches, it can break or create slack (loops) in the top thread that can (not frequently) get caught in the tension assembly, check spring, take up lever, thread guides or even in the bobbin area.. Fabric not tight enough in the hoop can cause flagging (fabric riding up and down on the needle) which can cause skipping and loops caught. Or too dense a design. Or thread too thick for the needle eye. Or fabric too thick for needle size.
Okay now you said something about the burrs. How is this done?
Feel around the rim of the black plastic bobbin case for any burrs or snags that can catch top thread and hold it down underneath. If you find any, they have to be polished off with Crocus fine emery cloth from the hardware store. Needle burrs can also be found on the presser foot opening, needle plate hole, or metal rotary hook rim or hook point. When top thread gets caught in upper tension, check spring or take up lever, it can pull the needle into the foot, plate, rotary hook or bobbin case causing burrs. If needles ever deflect in the material, it can cause a burr on the parts. This is how needles can get burred.
