New Discussion Board - Thanks To YOU!

A sincere thank you to the AmayaUsers Community who pitched in, donated and allowed us to purchase and install a brand new discussion board.  It's been a long time coming but you'll find better features, streamlined login and mobile browsing among other items.  In the process, we changed where things are located so if you have the site bookmarked, be sure to update.  Also, the new system doesn't have a separate user name and sign in name... which means to log in now, simply use your username to start posting.  If you missed donating the first time around, we're still accepting help keeping the site running. Simply click on the "donate" button on any page of the site to help out.  Enjoy the new boards and if you have any issues, see this thread!

MelcoMart Closes - Diverts Business to Madiera

Melco's MelcoMart has closed it's embroidery supply business - and is diverting users to the Madeira USA website.  Melco will continue to sell, service and supply parts for its embroidery machines thru ShopMelco.  Madeira USA will take over the sales and fulfillment of embroidery thread and supplies and supply thread for new embroidery machines shipping from Melco.  It would appear (to the dismay of many AmayaUsers that ARC thread is going away as the Madeira site gives users a conversion chart rather than offering ARC.  For those looking to change thread suppliers, we also recommend looking into AmannUSA who sells the popular Isacord brand.

Melco Embroidery Systems announces AMAYA XT

Melco combined customer feedback with industry demands and created a solution that will revolutionize the embroidery industry. Melco Embroidery Systems proudly announces the new AMAYA XT embroidery machine and operating system. Melco combined customer feedback with industry demands and created a solution that will revolutionize the industry.

The new AMAYA XT now has the smallest cylindrical arm with new cap frame and cap driver allowing for the largest cap sewing field in the industry. This also allows for sewing small areas such as pockets, children's, garments, golf club covers, and a wider variety of caps and visors.

The AMAYA XT OS (operating system) can still be used with a single head machine or a multi-head up to 30 embroidery machines through networking by Ethernet. When any single event occurs, such as a thread break, bobbin change, or hoop change, every head in the configuration comes to a stop.

With AMAYA each head operates independently so an individual head never stops the production of the remainder of heads. AMAYA is uninterrupted by thread breaks and uninterrupted by component failure.
