Are you one of those folks who perhaps haunts the site and secretly wishes for an embroidery machine? Do you wonder about just what the process is like? We have a couple basic tutorials to help you get acquainted with an embroidery machine, but there’s nothing like seeing it in action for those who are curious.
Jaime on Prudent Baby does an excellent job in this video showing you the basic steps of this machine. As she points out, it is quite affordable at only $297 on Amazon, so it’s a great beginner model for those of you looking at the price tags before jumping in. Personally, I would love to see the folks who make machines aim for an affordable model with a 5×7 hoop. We work very hard to ensure that 95% of our designs work in a 4×4, but what we hear most from 4×4 customers is that their number one wish is for a larger hoop.
Of course, we hear from our 5×7 customers that they long for a 6×10 or larger hoop too. So take that for what you will. I guess everyone always wants a little more, a little bigger, that’s just the nature of it, because embroidery certainly is fun at big sizes. Still, if you’ve been looking to jump in to machine embroidery, this video is a great little introduction to a very affordable machine.
