Dear Jan,
I am sewing light colored lettering on a heavy dark blue fabric and the fabric is showing through. What should I do? -Anonymous

Dear Anonymous,

Try using two threads through the eye of the needle instead of just one. Remove the extra spool pin from your accessory storage area and place it on the auxiliary spool pin holder in the upper right front of your Memory Craft 11000 (Refer to page 10 in the Instruction Book). Thread the machine, one thread at a time. A #75/11 Blue Tip needle is normally recommended for Professional-Style Embroidery but depending on the weight of the base fabric, you may need to use a #14 Topstitch needle. Always test sew a sample before sewing on your project.
