Machine Embroidery Department
In machine embroidery, an embroidery sewing machine is used to sew patterns on fabric, bags, towels, hats or other items. You can even make entire bags and items "in the hoop".
Our machine embroidery department will help you find information from the basics through advanced techniques. We have links and our own videos to describe how to applique, cutwork, hooping and monogramming.
We also have a lot of our own video tutorials on Machine Embroidery. Our videos will help you with downloading patterns and moving them to your embroidery machine, demonstrate applique techniques and feature many embroidery projects. You can see our machine embroidery videos in our Youtube section.
