When purchasing machine embroidery designs there are a few things that you should keep in mind. The first thing you must ensure is that the design you are purchasing will fit into you embroidery hoop. When you are downloading from a website the design information should be displayed with the design. It is good idea if you know your hoop sizes in both metric and imperial. for example a 4′x4″ hoop is the approximate equivalent to a 100mm x 100mm.

As embroidery design downloads are available from a very large number of websites it makes it so much easier to simply grab that one design that you are looking for without having to pay $100 or more for a CD that contains a multitude of designs you may never use. However buyer beware, there is nothing more disappointing than searching the internet for hours 2 or 3 days before an event for that special design for a gift, finally finding what you are looking for, stitching it out and it is poorly digitized the design is useless and you don't have your gift. Here are some tips to help you avoid this very frustrating experience. Firstly I can't stress this enough and embroidery is not an embroidery until it is stitched out, so if you are not looking at a photograph of the stitched design be very wary. I am not saying that these designs will never be any good I am just saying you can't be sure. A design can look OK in the digitizing software but may not stitch well due to stitching order and other factors. If you look at the image of the design you should be able to see the sheen of the thread and you will see that it is stitched on fabric. If it is an image taken from the digitizing software you will be able to tell if you look carefully.

The next tip is this, if you have come across a website with a selection of designs that you like check for the free designs, most embroidery design websites will offer a selection of free embroidery designs, download one or two of the freebies and stitch them out. Mostly you won't get the digitizers best work in the free sections but you will get a good idea of the quality of the designs in general. It is a good idea to keep a record of where you got your embroidery design downloads from and bookmark the website. this way you will be able to find it again if you like the digitizers work.

Top tips for machine embroidery

H1: Top 10 Embroidery Design Tips for Beginners and Hobbyists Alike At Embroidery Allsorts, we’re always learning from our mistakes, and want to share what we’ve learned so you can avoid making the same ones. Here are our top  tips and tricks every embroiderer should know. And if you have your own leave a comment on this post. #1: Patience is an Embroiderer’s Best Friend. Things WILL go wrong. If you’re patient by nature, embroidery is a great hobby for you. If you’re not,embroidery is going to greatly help improve that area of your life. All you can do is learn from your mistakes, be more careful in the future and try again! #2: Make Sure Your Fabric Matches Your Design. A dense, high stitch count design on a lightweight fabric will completely ruin the fabric’s flow. Choose delicate designs when working with lightweight fabric. And when stitching a design on a towel or high-pile fabric, choose a dense design that won’t disappear into the pile. Last but not least, for stretch fabrics, don’t try anything too large. Remember, the fabric will stretch, but the embroidery won’t. #3. Understand When to Use What Types of Stabilizers. There are many different embroidery-backing choices today that will stabilize your fabric while sewing designs – both permanent ones and temporaries you remove once the design is done. While the best way to discover what stabilizers might be right for you is to try them yourself, here are some fabric/stabilizer pointers to get you started in the right direction. I recommend using “Cutaway” on unstable fabrics (e.g. stretchy or knitted); using “Tearaway” on stable fabrics (e.g. woven); and using “Washaway” on freestanding lace or garments, or some really cool 3D stuff with organza – this is, if you want to get rid of the stabilizer altogether once the embroidery has been completed. Again, like everything else, try some out and discover the possibilities for yourself. #4: All Bobbin Fills Are Not Created Equal. Every embroidery machine works best with different bobbin fills. Ask your machine supplier for their recommendations, and don’t be afraid to experiment until you find the one that works best for you. Also, bobbin tension can loosen over time, so make sure you know how to adjust this. There is usually a little screw that you can turn on your bobbin case. Your machine manual should have instructions on this. And if not, your supplier should be able to show you. #5: Thread Breaking is a Warning Sign. If your thread breaks, there’s usually a reason. Either your tension is too tight, or it’s not properly threaded. Your machine manual may give you some troubleshooting ideas, but here are some of mine. Don’t just rethread the needle and hope for the best. Check that you’re threaded properly the entire way, and also check the tension. If your thread is dry, you can use a very small coating of silicone spray on the spool of thread. But, remember, a very small spray will do. I don’t recommend you do what I once did and spray it all over your machine, up the wall and on your curtains! Also, remember to change your needles. If you have been using them for a while, they can get blunt and bent. If in doubt, change them! #6. How to Color Sort My advice is quite simple. Don’t! At least, if you can avoid it. Every machine embroiderer knows the pain it takes to keep changing the thread in your machine. That’s why, at eembroiderydesigns, we keep that in mind with our designs. Our goal is to have the least number of color changes necessary to create a great result.[...]

What Causes Embroidery Machine thread to break?The machine isn't properly threaded; Re-threading the machine making sure the thread has gone through every one of the guides and the tension properly.There may be burrs in the needle's eye, on the thread guides, needle plate or the hook; Change the needle and try buffing the thread guides and needle plate. Buffing may alter the timing, so it might be wise to replace a defective hook.Dry Hook; As it becomes drier faster, the hook requires routine lubrication. The hook assembly needs to be oiled every 4-8 hours of machine running time.Needle to small; You might have to convert to a larger needleToo much Adhesive spray; You ought to be using exclusively Embroidery designed adhesive sprays, do not over use them. Too much adhesive build-up on the needle can make them drag and break threads. If this is happening you should examine the way you use your adhesive sprayImproper timing; If a machine isn't timed effectively, it can cause many problems besides thread breaks. Including, broken needles, poor stitching or at times no stitching.Old Thread; Thread can be brittle with age and long contact with light, air as well as heat. You should keep your thread within a cool, dark place to lengthen shelf life.Bruised cone; A bruised spool of thread can come about when the thread falls on the floor, causing the lower winding of thread to loosen and catch when the thread spools off. It is possible to take off the affected part of the thread or switch the cone.Machine speed; Many of the designs add to the stress on thread. You should lower the machine speed when neededLint build up; A lint build up on the tension discs, needle plate or bobbin cases could cause breakage. These areas should be cleaned regularly with air or maybe a brush.Bent needle; This may happen after the needle hits quite a hard object such as a Hoop, needle plate or the hook. If this happensyou need to replace the needle and look for burrs as well as the timing.Improper tensions; If the tension is too tight, you can get pulling, puckering and thread stress. If your thread is too loose it may cause the thread to accumulate and loop. You must alter the tensions to realize a flat smooth look.Using Tape for loose ends; Using tape can leave a residue and this can cause friction and thread breakage.Embroidery Design Chickenpuss in boot embroidery designembroidery design porpoiseembroidery design dolphincat in barrell embroidery designembroidery design cat and house embroidery design alligatorembroidery design brown chicken flying duck embroidery designclown fish embroidery design embroidery design duckdinosaur embroidery design dog embroidery design dog embroidery design snake embroidery designsembroidery design catsembroidery design black catbeaver embroidery design[...]

There are two different types of machine embroidery, the first is the use of a standard sewing machine to embellish an item using stitches. The second type is my favorite, it is using a computerized embroidery machine to create embroidery designs. The first time I saw an embroidery machine stitching out a design I thought it was magic, and I still do. The interesting thing is that if my friends drop by and I have something in my machine they will stand there sometimes for 1/2 an hour and watch my embroidery design stitch out. This of course leads me to the firm conclusion that it must be magic.Machine embroidery is much faster than traditional hand embroidery. A simple towel can be turned into a magnificent personalized gift just by embroidering a name on it. You can find embroidery designs on the internet, there are many sites that have downloadable embroidery designs in most of the popular machine embroidery formats. Most of these sites will have a selection of free designs for you to download. If you have something in particular in mind it may be a bit overwhelming surfing through the millions of designs out there. So be very specific when you ask Google a question: "Embroidery designs baby's first Christmas." This will save you a good bit of time.Most good sites will display a photo of the actual embroidery stitch out. If you find a site that show a jpeg of the design from the digitizing software you won't be sure that the digitizer has test stitched the design. This is important because and digitized design is not an embroidery until it is stitched out.Due to the push pull affect of the machine while stitching a design it may look quite different once it is stitched out than it did in the software. So if you come across a site shows images from the software and not a photo approach with caution. See the images below.Photo of stitched out embroidery designs.Image taken from embroidery digitizing software.If you are really creative you may want to create your own designs. This will take some patience to learn as the good embroidery digitizing software is quite complex and it is a good idea to make sure you can get some education in that specific program. The manuals are quite large and will instruct you on the various functions of the software, but they won't teach you how and why to apply them.Happy stitching allowFullScreen='true' webkitallowfullscreen='true' mozallowfullscreen='true' width='320' height='266' src='' class='b-hbp-video b-uploaded' FRAMEBORDER='0' />[...]
