i am very new to emboidering.  I was embroidering "SJA" sometime during the  A the needle broke.  it wasn't finished.  i took it out and undid the A, but now i don't know if i should undo the SJ also and start all over again.  is there a way to make sure that i get the A in the right spot? i really don't know what to do other than pick the entire thing out which it a huge pain in the butt.  thanks if you can help at all.

 Are you able to back your machine up to where the needle broke? Or have you already unhooped your design? If you've already unhooped the design then it's almost a given that you won't be able to get it just right again - so I would take it all out (not fun!) and start over. If you haven't unhooped it try backing up the needle to about 15 stitches before it broke. Most embroidery machines are equipped to to do this. Look thru your manual to see :o)
