There are many brands of embroidery machines. There are machines designed for commercial use like those made by Tashima and Happy. There are smaller units made for home use by well knows sewing machines companies like Janome and Babylock.


In the arena of home embroidery machines, there are stand-alone embroidery machines and there are combination or combo embroidery machines. These combo machines are world class sewing machines with exotic embroidery features added. brother innov bp3500 embroidery machine


Commercial embroidery equipment may have twelve to sixteen needles and thread assemblies. Janome and Brother offer smaller multi-needle and single needle standalone embroidery machines or cottage industry and home use. Combo embroidery machines are single needle machines.


Computer generated designs are used by the computer to control the embroidery head. The signals control the movement of the needle and hoop to produce the design one stitch at a time. Groups of stitches sew through one needle. This constitutes one threaded color. Then the next needle threaded with the next color sews its portion of the design.


To reduce this feeling of intimidation, take another look at your embroidery machine. Isn't the embroidery machine basically a straight stitch sewing machine? Sure, it is. When you reduce the operation of the machine down to its most basic level, the machine is a computer controlled straight stitch sewing machine that uses a moving hoop to position stitches. Change the needle mechanism being used and you have another straight stitch sewing machine.


When you think of your embroidery machine as a single stitch sewing machine, you can treat it the same way as you would a single stitch sewing machine. brother innov bp2100 embroidery machine


The biggest problem facing your embroidery machine is the same as any single stitch sewing machine. Dirt, gunk, lint, grit dried out and then crystallized lubricant, and neglect are some of the biggest causes the problems.


The embroidery machine user should focus on servicing three areas of their machine: the bobbin area, each needle bar area, and the hoop assembly.


Use a small brush and probe as needed to loosen debris. Use an air compressor, canned air, or a vacuum with special attachments to properly remove loose debris. Every three to four hours of sewing, clean these areas of your machine. Once clean place one drop of pure clean sewing machine oil wherever metal parts touch metal.


Replace the needles regularly. Regular embroidery needle is good for approximately three to four hours, but the titanium embroidery needle usually lasts much longer. Dull, bent, and worn needles do not perform as they should. brother innov bp1400e embroidery machine


When push comes to shove, rely on the experts. It is vital that you maintain your equipment in peak condition at all times, but at least once a year or ever 10,000,000 stitches have the experts provide thorough service. If the machine just won't work, rely on the pros.
