  1. THERMOMOID FILM
    ✔ Allows you to save on the use of adhesive sprays
    ✔ is used to attach embroidered motifs and chevrons

    And HOW is applied, we now tell you:
    First, place the hot melt film on the back of the product with protective paper up, then iron through the paper. The exposure time is 5-10 seconds, the temperature is 145-160C. It is very important not to increase the temperature and time of exposure, t. The film can be completely absorbed into the embroidered product, and subsequently it will not adhere well to the base material.
    Then embroider the product to the main material. It is necessary to remove the paper and cut along the contour of the product, then attach the product to the place of gluing with the adhesive side down. Iron iron, strongly pressing, especially pay attention to the edges. The exposure time is approximately 10-20 seconds, at a temperature of 145-160C. Increasing the temperature reduces the exposure time.
    After gluing it is necessary to leave the product in a state of rest for 48 hours, for complete gluing.
    The temperature when washing the product should not exceed 95C.

  2. Another expirince and opinion. Minimizing thread breaks in order of importance: 1) use good quality thread and bobbins. Isacord is well regarded for thread strength. Polyester is stronger than rayon, so make sure your problem areas are stitched with your most reliable thread. Use the right weight of thread - there is lighter weight thread available for tiny lettering and details and sometimes that makes all the difference for thread breaks and embroidery quality. 2) use the right size needle with the right point for your project and check often for needle burrs. A needle that is too large for a dense design can cause thread breaks. 3) check your needle eye angle - turned too far to the left or right affects hook timing. 4) check for correct bobbin tension and uniform bobbin tension - those prewound suckers can have flaws. If your bobbin tension goes loose-tight-loose-tight as you pull it out you're in for a bad time. Tension will also naturally loosen from the start of the bobbin to the end. Clean your bobbin case under the spring now and then. 5) use the appropriate speed and tension for the thread and material you are stitching. Some materials are just fussier than others. 6) use a topper on thick, stretchy items like polarfleece. 7) keep up with your machine maintenance, especially if you use spray glue or a sticky stabilizer that can gum up your machine. That sticky stuff will cause extra drag on your thread feed if it isn't cleaned off. 8) make sure your hooping is nice and snug, especially for knits and caps which are inclined to add extra bounce. If all that is correct, and you have a tried and true design that is sewing fine, THEN your digitized design is probably the issue. You may be working with a bad digitizer (switch digitizing services). If you are the digitizer, you either don't know what you are doing or you may be crippled by software limitations. Your design could also be made specifically for wovens or knits, flats or caps and you're trying to make it perform on a product it wasn't intended for. You may have resized the design and it didn't scale well. Etc., etc. So many things can be wrong with the digitizing. BUT FIRST check all your needles and bobbins and settings and such.
