Step Nine: You may run the machine without the upper thread to check proper placement. Note that on the diagram the X-marks are green to make them more contrasting. These marks are sewn by the 'zero color', which is not on the color card. After they are embroidered, the machine will stop and embroidery of the actual design will begin.
