Machine embroidery adds design details to quilts, garments and home decor. It can be done with either a special machine, or use your home sewing machine to create patterns and designs on textiles. Common designs are monograms, florals, quilt labels and more!
You can purchase designs and load into your machine to stitch out, or use a computer program to make your own embroidery design. With a home sewing machine, you can draw or trace your design onto fabric and use a variety of stitches to create your embroidery design.
Before embarking on a project, make sure to have some stabilizer so that your fabric doesn’t stretch in the process, and the right color threads available to make your design. Using a hoop helps keep your design symmetrical.
