Embroidery file ? All beginning is difficult – So it was with me

All beginnings are difficult – so it was with me.

Tips for working with the embroidery file and embroidery machine.

My research revealed the following:

Since all beginnings are difficult, I was not always good friends with my embroidery machine. The threads broke, the bobbins got tangled, the embroidery pictures were often disastrous. And by that I mean embroidery pictures that I made with purchased Embroidery files  I have worked with. From self digitized Embroidery files I had no clue at that time. So I read a lot, tried it out and got to grips with this work. Today I would not want to miss my embroidery machine. A great embroidery image can really be the eye-catcher on your self sewn piece.

My research revealed the following:

  • The needle, embroidery stabilizer and fabric type should always match.
  • The different embroidery machines each require individual handling of the embroidery files.  

On top I always put awashable film wie z.B. Avalon. You can use a regular embroidery needle– or a jersey-needle. I always take the embroidery needle.

Take jersey, for example. Underneath, a cuttable fleece is suitable, which you simply cut off all around after completing your embroidery. The fleece you clamp tightly in your frame. Now you can put some spray adhesive on it and glue your piece of jersey or sweat. It is also possible to lay the piece of fabric loosely on top, then fix the whole thing with a basting stitch (if available). Another possible fleece is the Soluvlies. By the way, it is water soluble. I used it in three layers, which makes the embroidery look slightly plastic and is perfect for stretchy fabrics. Also make sure that you always clamp your stabilizer really tight. This will prevent it from slipping out of the hoop. Nothing is more annoying than a slipped embroidery picture or?
