I would love a machine embroidery board. People seem to think its just plug it in and away it goes, but I've had to sit for over two hours to make my machine stitch a dragon onto the back of my boyfriends shirt, repeatedly rethreading the needle and sorting out problems. It takes more experience to machine embroider than hand embroider. I could embroider from about 6 years old, but it took a while to learn to use my machine satisfactorily.

There are lots of ways to be creative with this, including with the free software such as thred and wilcom embroidery truesizer!

Remember: To the world you might be one person, but to one person you might be the world.

See my website for my products (will post to anywhere in UK at cost of postage and packaging). It is a little out of date due to a server crash. Please email me if you want a custom order

If there were a board just for us ME'ers, I would post more often. I don't frequent this board much anymore, because there is no place to post for the ME and sewing type of things I do. I think if the hand embroiderers can have a board, why can't machine embroiderers have one of our own?

Think about it, there would be a lot of activity on this board if we had our own subject IMHO.

I also do machine embroidery I got a Pfaff 2170 for X-mas and I love doing embroidery on it.

It would be nice to see a board just for machine embroidery too. It is quite different from hand embroidery, and I don't feel it's any less important than any other craft on here. It's a lot more than just plop and drop. M E allows me too do things I could not have done otherwise creatively with my sewing projects. And as soon as I save up enough funds I'm buying thr 4-D suite so I can digitize my own designs Cheesy

I am marlou on sewforum. I belonged here for quite a while before I joined sewforum. I bought an embroidery machine around July '07, am still learning. I have not read all the posts on this thread but I have to say in my opinion, machine embroidery is NOT just hit the button & the machine does the work. There is a lot of planning &  setting up & WORK involved. My son does some carpentry, When I started he asked why I didn't set up at some sales around here & embroidery. Well I didn't want to do just some Initials I wanted to do  several designs merged. He said I didn't have to measure or anything involved, but it is involved when you do a very big design. Not that easy IMHO.

I am Cheyney's Aunt on SewForum.  I love reading the boards-they are so helpful!

Yeah!!!  I think I found all of you that listed yourselves as members or gave your alternate personality at sewforum. Wink  I would love to see a machine embroidery thread here - and maybe offer some insight to those who aren't sure about how to approach ME.  Some think "that is not crafting, there is no challenge to it", and some think "well, anyone can do that" - but for those of use that push the envelope in the ME world - the results can be AMAZING!!  So, join me in keeping up this thread - we need a voice!!  I am sure there are many other M E's lurking on these boards.....

Add your creations to this thread - lets show off our skills!  I posted my latest project in the holiday threads - not knowing whether or not this particular craft was accepted here.  But the replies were positive, and lots more were at least curious as to see how they were created.  How many of us quilt - and merge in our embroidery into the process?  Do you use your skills to digitize and create OOAK art creations - maybe with other craft skills such as needle felting, painting, beading, crocheting or any other one of a million crafting styles?  Let see it!  Smiley  (I will post mine as soon as I can get down the stairs - hopefully in the next week, I am missing my studio...Sad )
