Best Machine Embroidery Designs

Multi Thread Machine Embroidery Designs Available For Your Projects

Time is always a major obstacle for me. I keep so busy that there isn’t a lot of free time to fit in anything else. Urgent matters force me to give up other tasks or activities. Sometime, my wants take precedence. Like this week when I should be preparing for a yard sale. Instead, I took time to finish setting up my new sewing room.

It is important that I have my embroidery machine available both for my own projects and to test the machine embroidery designs that I create. So, the machines are all in place, foot pedals matched to the correct one and power cords in place. Wouldn’t you just know it; I can’t find any of the tools and equipment that allows me to get designs into the embroidery machine!

It looks like those items are still out in the garage in plastic bins that I haven’t gotten to yet because I was concentrating on the cardboard boxes. So, I took time from unpacking and organizing to set up the sewing room and didn’t have all of my equipment to begin with! What a waste of time for both sets of tasks. And, yet, all of my embroidery supplies are organized, so I can’t complain too much.

I still haven’t found my smaller embroidery machine. I’d love nothing better than to tear the garage apart until it’s found, but that would be a time-waster when my first priority should be the yard sale. The garage is my staging area, so creating chaos in there will not help me. What if the machine should still be missing? I’ll waste time being upset about it instead of concentrating on the odds and ends I hope to sell in a few days. Like I said, time is a big thing in my life.

Back in my corporate days, I had a boss constantly tell me to work smarter, not harder. Because my tasks took up every moment of every day, all of it beyond my control, it was truly a stupid sentiment from him. When it comes to my personal life, though, working smarter is something I very much can control. That is why machine embroidery is so important to me. It allows me to create beautiful items quickly, adding charm to my life in little ways. Doing it by hand may be more satisfying, but it would take too much time to get anything done. Harder or smarter? Utilizing machine embroidery designs is definitely smarter!

I must say that walking into my newly organized sewing room does give me a thrill of joy and accomplishment, even if my main embroidery machine is nothing more than a large, white decorative piece. When I do find the missing equipment, it will be ready to go. I guess that’s still better than having everything on hand but not having it in order enough to use it.

Either way, I think I deserve a trip to my favorite online embroidery design gallery. I just know there will be a great new free embroidery design there for me to reward myself with. I’ll worry about time later. Much later.

Take Little Time to Study Embroidery Designs

It was early afternoon today when my son and I realized that we hadn’t seen our two kittens since early morning. On any normal day, this wouldn’t have been much of a concern. On a moving day, though, all bets are off. Especially when the kittens’ favorite hiding place is inside the couch and those couches have been fully encapsulated with cardboard and tape.

It’s not a good feeling to think of what could have happened. Luckily, with the help of the movers, we were able to find them and remove them from the couch before it began its 12-week journey. The scare was horrid, but the joy at finding them soon overshadowed it. Still, I was rattled for quite a while.

I find myself responding like this more often these days when creating my beloved machine embroidery designs. Once I get the machine set up and going, I tend to do other things until the next color stop. If I leave the room, I keep an ear open for audible changes that could signal disaster. After four years here in Greece, my embroidery machine is making strange noises more and more. Taking it to the dealer for service is something I look forward to.

The problems got worse and worse as the noises became more frequent. I became flustered thinking that I was somehow forgetting my knowledge of machine embroidery. I thought the mistakes were my fault, instead of the fault of a machine that needs some tender loving care. Regardless, each mistake or problem makes me more jumpy than the last. Finally, I watched every stitch as it formed. That, along with listening closely, helped me to finish more projects.

When I become nervous about something, I do a lot of research on the subject until I feel certain that I can overcome any issues. With embroidery, I end up at my favorite embroidery design gallery instead. It’s so much more interesting than reading about a million and one machine problems. I’d much rather be finding new embroidery patterns! And I’m always guaranteed of finding a new free embroidery design for my efforts. Much more fun than research!

Now that I’m an experienced embroidery artist, I think I need to remind myself of the lessons I learned as a newcomer. It’s important to take time to get the project hooped properly. Take a little more time to study the embroidery designs before they stitch so that I am familiar with them. Then, just stitch. If it gets messed up, it gets messed up. There will always be some flaws or issues with machine embroidery, so it’s important to just go with it as much as possible. Agonizing over mistakes or what ifs will only suck all the joy out of the endeavor.

One thing that I do enjoy about watching every stitch form, though, is the knowledge I gain in how each embroidery design is created; how the beauty forms. If mistakes didn’t occur, I probably wouldn’t remember to take the great opportunity of this. Much like my cats hiding in a sofa and scaring me so badly, mistakes in embroidery offers a wonderful silver lining.

My number one tip is to just enjoy the calm after the storm, although dancing in the rain can be fun, too.

Striking Machine Embroidery Designs and Supplies

A couple of months ago, the thought of leaving Greece to go back to our home in California was quite distressing. We decided to stay for one more year. Then, career plans changed, and we are returning home after all. However, now that it is real, instead of just being thought about, I find that I am looking forward to returning home.

First, there are all the different foods that I love that I can’t get here; simple things like non-dairy coffee creamer and real donuts beckon me. Fast food and Chinese take-out are guilty pleasures that I can’t wait to indulge in again. While I love Greek food, nothing beats a greasy burger from one’s favorite joint.

Mostly, though, I’m looking forward to going home where I can go shopping and find all the wonderful  embroidery supplies  that make my heart sing. Here, I can get some thread for machine embroidery, but it’s just not enough! I need stabilizer and embroidery designs and Peltex and Mulberry Paper and everything else. When trying to find those things here, most of the shopkeepers think I’m trying to sell them something. It’s funny to hear the words “no thank you” when I’m trying to buy something, but it gets frustrating, too!

I do have a wonderful embroidery design gallery that I can visit online for my shopping needs, so I haven’t had to do completely without my supplies for the last four years. They offer machine embroidery thread, top quality discount embroidery designs, patterns, tutorials and anything else I can possibly need. Still, I like to browse the shops sometimes, too. It’s just not possible to meet my friends for lunch and shopping online!

When I was last in California, I actually didn’t do much shopping at my local shops, preferring the selection and pricing of the design gallery instead. Instead, I would go to the local shops to see and feel everything they had to offer. Then, I’d go home and order online for much better pricing. While purchasing new machine embroidery designs online, I’d also pick up a couple of fabulous free embroidery patterns or designs as well. The shops don’t offer that!

Another thing that I am looking forward to is being able to pick up an embroidery magazine that is written in my native English. From time to time, I would buy a Greek magazine for the pictures and inspiration. For the most part, I could follow along with the pattern by using the diagrams, but it would be so much easier if I could read it! The beautiful projects made the magazines worth it, though.

As my life gets turned upside down from an international move, my love of machine embroidery is keeping me grounded. When I finish a task here, I allow myself some time to stitch a little project or do a bit of shopping. I’m looking forward to setting up my new sewing room wherever we end up. And, even more, I’m looking forward to being an embroidery artist in America again. I guess there really is no place like home.
