Embroidery Tips

Compliments of EmbroideryFontShop.com

There are many attributes which must be considered when stitching-out an embroidery design. Design quality, stabilizer selection, hooping technique, thread tension, thread trimming, and needle/thread choice all affect the final result. I have worked hard to provide you with exceptional design quality. However, the rest of these attributes are controlled by you, with some dependency upon individual machine and embroidery design. It is therefore difficult for me to provide a universal set of instructions for generating flawless beautiful results. So instead, I am providing this tip sheet which explains some of the underlying principles which you should consider and experiment with in refining techniques demanded by your unique situation. I hope you will find these tips helpful and applicable to your embroidery success.

Design Quality
I have put much effort into validating each of the embroidery fonts to insure beautiful design quality. All font designs are thoroughly inspected and sewn-out prior to making them available for purchase at EmbroiderFontShop.com. It is therefore unlikely that you will have any problems associated directly with the design itself (such as misaligned features, undesirable density, visible underlays and traveling stitches, awkward jump stitch locations, etc.). If, however, you find yourself questioning the design, please contact me immediately and I will correct it as quickly as possible. I am highly confident you will be satisfied with the lettering you purchase from EmbroideryFontShop.com. But due to the extensive effort required to generate these designs, a small margin of error does exist. Please let me know of any dissatisfaction.

Stabilizer Selection and Use
Proper selection and use of stabilizer is one of the more influential factors of those mentioned. As a design is stitched-out, distortion is created in the fabric upon which the design is being placed. This distortion can result in misaligned outlines and features if not properly controlled. It is the stabilizer which minimizes these effects. If you are having trouble with misaligned features or gaps in between fills, the problem can often be corrected with a change in stabilizer selection (or hooping technique discussed below). As a general rule of thumb, heavier weight stabilizer results in less distortion. It is also important to note that distortion can be further reduced by securely affixing the fabric to the stabilizer. Hence you will find many options available on the market for this purpose (such as temporary adhesives, adhesive backed stabilizer, etc.). I have produced beautiful results for all designs available at EmbroideryFontShop.com using a medium/heavy weight tear-away stabilizer without use of any adhesive-based products. All designs were also stitched-out on a high quality heavier weight muslin.

Hooping Technique
The method used to hoop your stabilizer and fabric impacts how much the fabric is able to move while the design is being stitched out, and consequently how well the outlines and other features align. Ideally, you want to fix the fabric and stabilizer in the hoop as securely as possible. Any wrinkles in the fabric or stabilizer will allow for fabric movement while the design is being stitched out. If this occurs, the features of the design will not align correctly. Please determine a hooping method that is convenient for you and works best with the chosen fabric and stabilizer. The goal is to place the fabric and stabilizer in the hoop such that both fabric and stabilizer are taut like the surface of a drum. This is often relatively simple but, you may have to develop some experience with different fabrics, stabilizers, and hoops to achieve this goal on a regular basis.

Thread Tension
Excessive thread tension can lead to thread breaks and distortion in the design. A lack of tension can result in the bobbin thread pulling through to the top of the design or loose loops of thread in the fill areas. If the top thread is not being pulled through at all or you notice loopy areas in the bottom or top of your design (even slightly), it is a sign that the bobbin tension may need to be tightened. The slightest adjustment of your bobbin can cause a negative effect to the design. So, check all other possibilities before adjusting your tension. You might want to consider contacting your local service center and have them make the adjustment for you.

Thread Trimming
Although it may seem overbearing, we recommend trimming thread jumps between color changes and letters. I find it easier than waiting until the design is completed where many of the jump stitches are covered by subsequent stitches. The final result also frequently looks better because the trim points are often hidden by subsequent stitches. Do not cut the bobbin thread (bottom of design) between letters, as this could lead to unraveling of your stitches.

Needle / Thread Choice
I used a 90 Schmetz needle and Isacord 40 weight thread on all designs during testing. I recommend Isacord thread due to the quality and look it provides. If you are using Sulky thread please try a 100 needle before 90. I have found this thread breaks very easily with a 90 needle. I do not recommend thicker threads on the smaller designs available at EmbroideryFontShop.com (3/4 inch in height and smaller). The density has been adjusted accordingly on these designs for sewing accuracy.

Test Sew
Because of the many factors known to influence the final embroidered quality, I highly recommend that you first test sew designs on a scrap piece of fabric. It would be best if the test fabric and stabilizer are identical to that planned for use in your project. By doing this, you will be able to make any adjustments that might be necessary before committing to your project fabric.

Good luck and happy sewing! Visit us again soon, as we strive to provide you with a wide selection of quality lettering designs.

Thank you,
