Machine embroidery on shantung
This fabric with an interesting name came to us from China. It is a variety of silk. However, in comparison with silk, it has many advantages. This fabric costs less, and it is much easier to look after it. Since it has a synthetic (polyester) basis. Very often it is used for sewing dresses, skirts and some kind of accessories.
The high density of the shantung fabric fibers makes it also a popular basis for decorative elements. In machine embroidery, shantung is not so popular, for example, as cotton or linen. Yet it can be considered a suitable basis for embroidery. In addition, such a fabric is sold in a wide range of colors.
Let’s consider the basic features of the embroidery process on such a fabric.
Since one side of the shantung fabric is rather slippery, it can be difficult to stabilize and to hoop it. To make the fabric more stable and avoid slipping during embroidery, use temporary spray adhesive, for example Gunold KK100. Spray it onto the cut-away stabilizer and only then hoop it.
Despite the fact that this fabric is a variety of silk, you may not worry about the marks from the hoops. We know that silk cannot be hooped, but shantung is not afraid of it.
Needle # 75/11 copes with its task better than usual embroidery needle. It makes holes less, which is very important in this situation.
You can use the Calligraphy Christmas Postcard Machine embroidery design to create gifts. In this case, you can embroider it not only on the pillow, but on a blouse, towel or kitchen accessories.
