Machine Embroidery: If you are thinking about getting a sewing machine that includes Machine Embroidery then you will want to read All About Machine Embroidery. I have 31 posts that cover every possible thing you could want to know.Every embroidery machine comes with a few fonts and a some designs built into the machine.

If you are keeping up with this series you will know that I’ve mentioned this here and here.

When I bought my first embroidery machine, I didn’t really understand this or anything about machine embroidery {hence, this series}.

  • My machine came with lots of designs like flowers, some animals, and several fonts. I thought I was set for life.
  • I embroidered a few things from the machine, but quickly learned that there was a whole other world of affordable designs available to me. Why limit myself!
  • Then, I discovered I could purchase designs and fonts. Well, my friends, machine embroidery became a whole other game.
  • Now, some manufacturer’s are adding exclusive licensing designs into their machines. An example would be Brother, which has an exclusive on Disney designs.

Bernina and a few others offer exclusive designs from other renowned digitizers. These are mostly floral in nature and you see them embroidered on sweatshirts that have been converted into jackets. Not.me.not.ever!

Let me state here:  I’ve never used any of the designs built into my current machine. Instead, I always find what I want on the internet.

For me, built-in designs are not a deal-maker or a deal-breaker. And, I would suggest it shouldn’t be for you, either.

If you are inexperienced but want to dive into machine embroidery then those built-in fonts and designs will matter. They may be all you use for a while.

But, once you advance a little beyond what comes on your machine, then you will be looking elsewhere for designs.

And, I will be discussing where to get designs soon. Let’s not get ahead of ourselves.
