Hey Everyone… It’s all about embroidery here at j stern designs this week. I’m working on Tee Shirts for the Seniors on the East Catholic Volleyball Team. Abby’s graduating along with 9 other girls… That’s a lot of embroidery 🙂 I decided this was an excellent opportunity to show you how I embroider. In today’s video tutorial I’ll talk about how to stabilize knit fabric, get it in the hoop, get the hoop under the presser foot and protect the surface of the fabric while embroidering. After the embroidery is complete, I’ll show you how to get the hoop off the machine and remove the stabilizer.
The overall design of this tee is made of two different embroideries on the back and one on the front. If you’re working on multiple shirts with the same design, I have found that it’s easier and more efficient to embroider the first design on all the shirts before moving to the second design (instead of finishing each tee individually). In the next video tutorial, I’ll show you how to perfectly position the second embroidery to complete the back of the Tee.
…and speaking of embroidery, the Bernina 200e that I have for sale is still available. It comes with everything you need to start embroidering the moment you get it out of the box… plus 25 extra presser feet! If anyone is interested please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. 🙂
