This Embroider-Along will be a place of education and guidance?for the beginner. For my seasoned machine embroidery enthusiast?it?will be a place of reassurance and perhaps learning a few new tricks.

There are?four basics of machine embroidery?to?cover?in the Embroider-Along series?so you get?the best results when machine embroidering.

Choosing the correct stabilizer can make or break your project. There are hundreds of different stabilizers on the market?however, when broken down, there?are?just a few types.

The best way to choose stabilizer will depend on the type of material you are embroidering on. Will you be stitching on knit, woven, sheer fabric or a napped fabric? During my Embroider-Along I will cover which stabilizers are best based on the type of material?you are using in your project.

Needles play a huge part in stitch quality on basic sewing so you can imagine when your needle is going up and down 600-1000 stitches per minute it’;s even more important to get it right.

Just like stabilizers, needle selection can seem daunting?but there are just a couple of basics.?Needle selection depends on the material and thread type. Will you be using metallic, polyester or rayon thread? Will you be stitching on a baby Onesie or thick towel? These will be part of the topics of conversation in the Needles portion of my Embroider-Along series.

Using good thread in your machine is like filling your car up with the right gas. If you don’;t, it just won’;t work. There are many brands of thread, various weights and different fiber contents. When choosing?a?thread we?need to ask?these?questions:

An on-going conversation among machine embroidery folks is hooping. One of your stitching friends might say, “;I never hoop anything”;;?another friend might claim they hoop even the thickest of towels. Who is right, which is easiest?and?what will provide the best results? In the Hooping blog post portion of my Embroider-Along I will answer those questions and discuss?these?additional?topics:

My goal will be to show you the fastest?and?easiest techniques to provide you with results?which will impress your friends.

You can get a retro look without jettisoning all of your modern furnishings; in fact, a blend of older and modern pieces works very well, provided that your modern bedroom furniture isn't completely out of sync with the look that you're going for. Because of this, retro styles are a very good choice for redecorating on a budget – that and the fact that many of the pieces that you might want for this look can be found inexpensively.
