harvey074 posted a topic in Embroidery technique sewing experienceScarves and the woven wool, cashmere, pashwana etc. material are tough. Anyone have any suggestions on needles (ordering ball nose needles today) or backing? Or anything else? I'm trying different stitch densities and I'm finding I can cut a hole in the test scarf pretty easily with sharp needles. Although I did find the ability to cut holes an interesting decoration! Any thoughts on thread? I'm also using large stitch counts and getting the backing off the garment is impossible with tear-away, too many small pieces. Cut-away is not an option. Will stuff like Solvy do me any good? Or is it going to be one mess of clumped goo? I have waffle and some other backings around. I'd be interested if anyone has an idea of the recipe for wool scarves. I'm not quite sure of all the parameters to set the tensions or whatever parameters are controlled by the recipe. Thanks in advance for your help,
Using Steamer to remove solvy
siv1987 posted a topic in Thread and StabilizerHelp! I have read articles to use a steamer to remove Solvy. I tried last week and it was a mess. The steps I did were; Tear off most of Solvy Put steamer to garment It was not working well therefore I rubbed it and it became a mess I'm not sure what I did wrong. Thanks in advance for your help.
I am trying to embroider a company logo on zippered hoodie jackets. Stitch count is 12400 are of stitching is 4" x 3". Mainly satin lettering with a small 1" square in corner. I have tried with a mesh cut away but bobbin thread is pulling up thru design. I have one jacket now that is for getting this set up correctly. I have cleaned machine, oiled, 3 different bobbins. Adjusted tensions on bobbin and needles... tried everything. I have tried mesh on back with solvy on front.. it still looks awful.. Could someone please give me some input. Thank you in advance for any wise wisdom you wish to pass on!
