Myths of machine embroidery – true or false? Let us understand.

Myth 1. All threads of machine embroidery are interchangeable, and you can easily use a thread of the same thickness of another manufacturer, if you ran out of thread during embroidery.

Answer: This opinion is quite erroneous. Even having the same thickness, the threads of different manufacturers give different results. First, one thread is still thicker, and the other is thinner. Secondly, they look on the cloth in different ways. So if you started embroidering a design, and you ran out of thread, buy the same, and only then continue the process. Otherwise, the transition from one producer’s thread to another will be very noticeable.

Myth 2. You can learn how to embroider by using recommendations in textbooks, articles, blogs and other sources.

Answer: Such information becomes useful only if you have applied it to practice. Remember, constant testing, practice combined with accumulated knowledge is the key to success. After all, machine embroidery is not a theoretical, but a practical science.

Successful embroidery!
