How to use them and what to make
There are four things you need to know.
How to use computer embroidery machine? After reading the manual and getting familiar with the frame and settings, it is easy.
Adjust and fix parts
If you are using a combination of sewing machine and embroidery machine, you need to make some adjustments when switching functions. Before you start, make sure that the machine is turned off and unplugged from the circuit. First, replace the presser foot with darning or freehand embroidery feet. You can also use this foot only, lay down to feed the dog, and then embroider freehand. To use computer embroidery, you need an embroidery frame, which comes in various sizes. The larger your embroidery design, the larger the frame required. You may also need to pull out your arm. To do this, simply pull out and click on the embroidery arm mounted on the frame.
Insert embroidery needle
For any embroidery project, special needles for embroidery must be used. This needle helps prevent thread breakage during embroidery. For the thread, you can use regular thread, but the embroidery thread has a lovely luster, making your embroidery design really popular and looks professional. For embroidery designs, you can use pre-programmed designs on the machine, or if the machine has a USB port, you can download the embroidery designs online and import them into the machine.
Set fabric and embroidery thread
Before inserting the embroidery frame into the machine, the fabric must first be installed in the embroidery frame. If the fabric is very thin, you may also have to use stabilizers. Place your fabric on the bottom frame-it can be a piece of fabric that will turn into a pocket or patch, a piece of already cut pattern or a piece of clothing. Place the top frame on the fabric and push to click or lock into the frame. Then, turn the turntable or knob to tighten the frame and make sure it is secure. You may need to use a screwdriver to secure it. In addition, pull up the sides of the fabric to ensure that it does not loosen in the frame.
Flip the latch up, slide the frame into the embroidery arm, and then click down to secure and lock in place. Carefully check that no other fabric is stuck under the frame and the bobbin is fully loaded. Match the color or fabric of the bobbin thread with the main or functional embroidery thread. Choose whether the embroidery design is preloaded or from a USB drive. Most embroidery machines will allow you to try to adjust the design size and position within the frame. You can also choose the color of the thread based on the appearance that must be previewed.
After setting all the contents, take a look at which thread colors are lined up in the queue, and then pass it through the needle, then press START. An embroidery sequence will appear on the screen, and the machine will stop after each thread color is completed. Just lift the presser foot, change the thread color, and click Start again until all colors are complete! After the embroidery is completed, lift the latch and slide out the embroidery frame. Use a pair of small scissors or embroidery scissors to cut any loose threads. Cut them as close as possible. Finally, click on your embroidery, the frame can make the fabric around the embroidery significantly wrinkled.
This is an example of machine embroidery used on pilot jackets. To do this, I cut the sleeve pattern from the fabric and insert it into the embroidery frame. Before sewing a flat sleeve pattern, the simplest method is to use a flat stitch pattern. For this jacket, I actually embroidered black twill, then cut the embroidery, and then sewed it to the jacket by hand. This method works well when you need to use tricky fabrics like velvet. Most high-pile fabrics are difficult to embroider smoothly.
