10 Machine Embroidery Tips for Beginners

Starting a new embroidery project can be a big challenge unless you have someone to help you throughout the process. Here are 10 machine embroidery tips that will help you enjoy the process.

  1. Relax – You have invested in an embroidery machine and all the supplies that you need for your project. Being nervous is understandable, but if you take it one step at a time, you will do fine. Keep in mind that mistakes are natural and they offer you more opportunities for learning.

2. Grow – Learning is a continuous process. The further you explore your craft, the more understanding you will get of how to make things work well together. Try to research online often about your type of art project. You might be surprised at how much information is available and what you can learn from the experience of others.

3. Take Your Time – You must practice in order to perfect a design style or pattern. Allow yourself to spend more time reading, practicing or taking craft classes. There are some amazing tutorials available on YouTube which will help you progress in technique and style. Practicing often can help you improve your machine embroidery skills and will pay off in the long run.

4. Start Small – If you are new to machine embroidery, it’s beneficial for you to start with a small project. Start with something easy, then when you have mastered it, proceed to more challenging tasks.  When you are a beginner, a large complicated project can be overwhelming and cause you to lose confidence.

5. Take Notes – Prepare your own notes to help you master future machine embroidery projects. Get a notebook, binder or a journal and start keeping notes of all your projects. Document everything; fabric, the type of stabilizer, thread types and their colors, any machine adjustments made by you and anything else that may help you to improve your results next time. It is also helpful to include photos for reference.

6. Be Frugal – Don’t buy into every gimmick and gadget out there – It’s easy to spend a lot of money on unnecessary things when you are excited about a new hobby. But all you need to get started with your project is an embroidery/sewing machine, scissors, stabilizer, fabric, thread, machine embroidery designs and a creative mind. So do some research on the things you really need before investing in the extras.

7. Get Organized –   Being organized in your work area offers you more productive time in the long run.  It is ideal to have a separate area set aside for your crafting, but you can fit in your hobby in small spaces with some careful planning.  Take advantage of the great space saving modules now available and repurpose common household items.

8. Test Stitch – A good design heavily depends upon proper stabilizing for the type of fabric used, good quality thread, and sharp, new needles. It’s possible the same design will stitch out in a different way than you expect. The design file may get corrupt during conversion or it may require special handling or stabilizer. To avoid wasting time and materials, get into the habit of test stitching on a similar fabric/stabilizer before starting your actual project.  You can use the test stitches later for quilt squares as donations to a good cause.

9. Be Fearless – Don’t be afraid to try something new.  Explore new design styles and techniques once you gain some experience. You can try different designs like cutwork, applique, 3D, and freestanding lace designs, to name a few. There is no end to the creativity you can tap into once you get started!

10. Show Off a Little – Once you have completed your project, wear it… share it… display it!  You have worked hard to create a one of a kind, quality craft item, get excited and share your new found love with others.  It is satisfying and fun to share the fruits of your labor with others.

In-depth Machine Embroidery Art Framing Patterns

My little family of three is staying with my father-in-law while our household goods make the slow trek from Greece to California. Over the years, this has been the norm, but it is much different this time because my mother-in-law is no longer here to run the household. That now falls to me. While I’ve cooked in this kitchen off and on for 25 years, it is so different now actually doing instead of just helping. I find that even my tried-and-true recipes aren’t turning out the same. Very strange. I’ve begun making notes on my computer so that I’ll have some idea of what I’m doing right or wrong. Luckily, I won’t be in charge of holiday meals this year!

I have similar problems in Best machine embroidery. I’m rarely satisfied to leave things exactly as the designer suggests or the embroidery patterns insist on. Of course, sometimes I just understand they my machine will be happier if certain adjustments are made. As long as I think things through before making changes, all is usually well. Of course, these are intentional changes and not the weird, unidentifiable ones happening in the kitchen.

There are several things that can go wrong, though. If I set up a design to stitch over a pocket, I may have to adjust the machine to center the embroidery design exactly where I want it. I love that I can do this. However, what happens if the power goes out? Instead of panicking, this is actually the easiest problem to recover from IF I haven’t skipped a step. What is this miracle step? I simply write down the adjustments I made to the embroidery machine before starting. That makes it possible to re position the machine to exactly where I started the first time before advancing to the area where I need to continue stitching. I even note it when I’ve made no adjustments so that I am never confused.

Then, there are those very in-depth machine embroidery patterns for things like cutwork embroidery doilies or free-standing lace 3D boxes. I don’t make any changes to the actual embroidery designs, but I may change what I do to create them. If they don’t turn out, I can try again. If they do turn out, though, I’ve got a winner that I’ll stitch over and over again. IF, that is, I didn’t skip that magic step.

For example, if I modify a project so that my doily comes out to a different size than the embroidery pattern specifies, I need to make extensive notes and keep them somewhere safe so that they are there if I ever want to recreate the project. No notes? No easy way to recreate it. Machine embroidery thread also comes in so many wonderful colors; if I don’t make notes about those I chose, I can’t color-match properly.

Sure, I’d much rather just be stitching, but these extra steps keep my embroidery humming along once I do get started. Now, if I could only figure out what I’m doing in this kitchen and have my notes be as helpful, I’d be happy!
