How To Machine Embroidery Monograms

Needlework Supplies
Most embroidery machines have one or more fonts that can be used to create monograms or personalize embroidery designs. Some machines have advanced manipulation functions such as kerning, leading and baseline adjustments that let you position each letter exactly as you want. Look for monogramming functions that give you options for stylizing one or more letters into decorative monograms. Besides stitching monograms and names, embroidery machines can be used for creative writing. Birth and marriage announcements, pithy sayings, words of wisdom, fabric books and poetry can be stitched on fabric or paper for artwork, toys, and gifts.

Often such monograms will be made on commemorative quilts for babies or weddings. Your embroidery machine can help you make your quilts and add your monograms in most instances. Here are some things to know about these special embroidery machine monogrammed quilts and how to make them. Quilting In The Hoop Beautiful outline designs used to quilt layers of fabric and batting give a rich quilted look in a fraction of the time needed for free-motion quilting. Embroidery machines are generally set with a fairly tight bobbin tension and a looser needle tension, which makes for good-looking designs with the needle thread pulling slightly to the back to keep bobbin thread showing on the front of the project. This works for more projects but isn’t the best option if you want the back of a quilt to look as good as the front. You can make tension adjustments on the machine, or you can stitch the embroidery designs through the quilt front and batting, adding the backing after all the embroidery designs are stitched, and then use stitch-in-the-ditch and or free-motion stitching techniques to complete the quilt and stitch all layers together. To stitch the quilt, user water-soluble stabilizer that can be dissolved when the stitching is complete. The best method of preparing the quilt is to place one or more layers of stabilizer behind the batting and hoop all layers, being careful not to distort the fabric. For small areas and simple designs, you can hoop the stabilizer only and use temporary spray adhesives to hold the quilt in the hoop. For design placement, the most accurate method of positioning requires a design template. Stitch it in the desired size and make photocopies of it. Position the templates on the quilt as desired and mark the placement for stitching.

After hooping and stitching the designs, remove the fabric from the hoop and cut away the excess stabilizer. Dissolve any remaining stabilizer with water. Finish the backing and binding of the quilt as desired. Author Box: I really enjoy the many types of embroidery.
