Are you thinking of buying an embroidery machine? 
Do you own one, but rarely use it? 
Did you buy an embroidery machine, but haven’t taken the embroidery unit out of the box? 
Let Marta explain seven things that will simplify machine embroidery.
1 hour 43 minute DVD
Here’s what you’ll find in this video::
  • A tour of machines — Overview of the machines plus a tour of the latest technologies with Brett Moore at Portland, Oregon’s Montevilla Sewing Center (which made us want to trade up!). Be sure to tour your local dealer!
  • Needles and threads—choices and characteristics  What needles to use. What makes it an “embroidery needle” and what other options do you have? All about embroidery threads—fibers, size, uses.
  • Stabilizers — Oh, the confusion! There are so many! Cut- away, tear-away, water-soluble, and melt-away—uses for each. Also, Marta’s secret favorite stabilizer most stores don’t sell.
  • Designs — Built into the machine; designs that come with the machine; designs to buy and use with your machine. Stitching out the designs for reference; making a notebook of stitched-out designs.
  • Test Samples — Why test? Size, color, stabilizer, density of design. Testing made easy. How to hoop. Specialty fabrics like knits and terry cloth. Special challenges: ready-mades and pattern pieces not large enough for the hoop, such as pockets.
  • Design Placement — On ready-mades, on fabric to be embroidered before cutting out the pattern pieces, and on a tablecloth. Avoiding seam allowances and mirroring designs.
  • Now Embroider! — Marta embroiders a child’s very small T-shirt. She shows the finished embroidery on a child’s taffeta dress, placing pattern on already embroidered fabric from the previous segment, and mega hoops.
  • Creative Ideas — Marta shows inspiring embroidered jackets, blouses, dresses, and home-dec items in the introduction. At the end are tips for embellishing a round tablecloth and a jacket lapel.
