Phlox machine embroidery design

Feel the magic of the shades of the heavenly blue with our embroidered phloxes. Do you know that these flowers symbolize sincerity, modesty, hope? In the past all, the ladies of the court were crazy from the phloxes. Moreover, it was very prestigious to receive such a flower as a gift.

Phlox machine embroidery design made in the technique of manual stitch and satin-shadow stitch. It is quite dense, in comparison with contour designs, such as Redwork. That is why there can be a problem of puckering the fabric when choosing the wrong embroidery technology. At the same time we want to notice that we have special way of creating our shadow satin stitch designs. Our patterns are created in such a way that puckering are minimal. Let us talk about this a little.

Each embroiderer at least once noticed wrinkles on the fabric after embroidery. Sometimes they are not critical and can disappear after stripping, and sometimes they are especially noticeable. This is the puckering of the fabric. It would seem, at first glance, you did everything right, according to the same technology as always. Why did the fabric pucker? Consider the main factors that can affect the puckering of the fabric.

First, we should remember the main formula for the conformity of the embroidery designs for sale and fabric. It sounds like this: “The thicker the embroidery, the thicker and more stable the fabric should be.” That is, patterns with dense cover require a base fabric of the appropriate density. However, light designs can be embroidered even on the thinnest and most transparent fabrics. Pay attention to this.

Secondly, a strong tension of the upper or lower thread can also affect the puckering of the tissue. Therefore, it is important to adjust it properly.

Thirdly, an important factor affecting the puckering of the fabric is its tension in the hoop. If the fabric is not tight enough, the probability that the fabric will pucker is high.

Fourthly, in manuals on the using of embroidery machines, it is noted that burrs on the path of the thread can also lead to this problem. Although it is more likely that this factor affects more the problem of yarn breakage during embroidery. Nevertheless, you should also consider it.

These are the main, so to speak, standard reasons. Moreover, there are some additional factors of tissue puckering. These include:

~ Tension on the compensating spring

~ The gap between the retainer (hook retainer = hook support = finger). It should be from 0.5 to 0.8 mm. Adjust it is possible by loosening the two screws that are at the edges, and shifting the plate in the desired direction.

~ Checking the position of the retainer. You need to make sure that it is not shifted in any direction.

In general, the puckering of the fabric is a frequent occurrence. We hope that our advice will be useful to you and help to prevent it.
