Embroidery sewing machines are specifically made from embroidery work. Although free motion embroidery can be done on a regular zigzag machine there are specific machines that are made specifically for embroidery projects and contain a lot of additional features and functions that many sewers find incredibly useful.
What is an Embroidery Sewing Machine?
An Embroidery sewing machine is a computerized sewing machine that contains an LCD touch screen, a USB interface, and a variety of functions built-in such as built-in stitches, designs, patterns, auto threading, along with the capability to download additional designs and patterns.
There are a lot of built-in benefits of a computerized embroidery sewing machine. The main benefit is the fact that you can create or download embroidery designs on your laptop, import them directly in your machine, and allow your machine to do the rest.
You can create professional, beautiful embroidery work on your sewing projects in a fraction of the time it would take you with a traditional mechanical sewing machine.
Ideal for Retail
Especially if you’re planning on sewing clothing or your embroidery projects, an embroidery sewing machine is a must. These machines give cleaner, more accurate, embroidery stitches and give our work a more professional appearance. All of which are ideal for retail.
Embroidery can take a lot of time and precision. An embroidery machine cuts down the majority of the work and allows you to create more stunning designs in a fraction of the time. Especially if you’re mass-producing designs, an embroidery machine is a great machine to have.
Not all embroidery sewing machines are the same. Some will have more built-in stitches, while others’ built-in computer systems may be more advanced. It’s important to ask yourself:
- What type of embroidery projects do I plan on doing?
- What are my required stitches?
- How many projects do I plan on doing?
Asking yourself the questions above will help you narrow down the embroidery machines available on stitch speed, efficiently, features and functions provided, and lastly, how much it costs.
