Do I need to wash them before I embroider on them?

Yes, it removes the sizing and finishes the manufacturer puts on them.  Be prepared to iron them before you get started too. 
Also just in case anyone is looking for some I just bought a pack at Wal-Mart (in the kitchen towel isle) that were only 5 bucks.  Cheaper than I have seen them before.

Cheesy  Thanks. I got  4 for 5 bucks at hyvee.

Just to be devil's advocate, my grandma, mom, and I have embroidered these towels for years, and have not once washed them.  They always come out looking fine.

Making an effort to use proper English and not 'net slang makes me much more willing to respond to your post.
