Welcome back to Day 14 of All About Machine Embroidery. If you are just now joining us, check out the previous posts here.
Yesterday, I talked about the two main threads for machine embroidery, Rayon and Polyester.
Today, I want to talk about bobbin thread. You would, naturally, think that your bobbin thread should match your top thread.
But, that isn’t always the case. Consider you are stitching out a design that uses 6 different thread colors. Are you going to make 6 different bobbins?
Me either. The first question to ask about bobbin thread for embroidery machines is this:
What type of bobbin thread does this machine use?
My first embroidery machine (Babylock Ellure) used Finishing Touch thread. This is all I ever used in the bobbin when I was embroidering.
