Auto Baste will baste the rectangular outline of a design
If you have ever wanted to embroider a towel, you probably floated a layer of water-soluble stabilizer over top of the hoop. The problem is that this could use some anchoring stitches before the embroidery starts - this prevents the stabilizer from moving around. There used to be kind digitzers who would put various versions of 'basting files' out for us on the internet. Later, some machines had the feature built-in. But have you noticed that if the baste is the same size as the design, you can trap some of the basted threads under the design. The Auto-Baste solves this by making the baste stitching ever-so-much-bigger than the design. And it is adjustable.
