I would like to start doing embroidery for infant clothing. Can someone guide me how to start?

3

Do I need to take classes for this? I saw someone had a computer program and from that it went to the machine. I just don't know what I need to get other that an embroidery machine obviously. Do they come with computer programs? Thanks!

Two good machines to start with are the Singer Futura or the Singerxl6000 depending on your budget. Both have programs that allow the machine to transfer a design from your computer to the machine itself. You will not have to buy a seperate program. There are TONS of free designs online to get you started, and you can always buy a digitizing program later if you choose to start actually making your own designs. Embird is a good program to start with when your ready to do that

There are several yahoo groups for both types of embroidery machines I mentioned and you will get great help there

You can get kits to start at craft stores like Michaels or AC Moores , Hobbie Lobbie, etc..to help get you started. No need for a mackine at all!

Or try cross stich, also can start with kits or get a kind saleslady to show you what you will need and all of these stores have cataloges to get you started with the How-To's of your chosen craft. Just take your time while in your craft store and do your studing while there…Ask questions and you will come out happy and soon be making beautiful images for your clothing!

For machine embroidery you need an embroidery sewing machine. DO NOT buy one at Wal-Mart or Sears. You need to get one from a sewing machine store where you will receive free lessons on how to use the machine you buy. There is software and hardware you will have to get also.
Using an embroidery machine takes time. You are not going to open it up and go. You will have to practice. I have taken many classes on how to embroidery right. You need to learn the type of thread to use, bobbin thread, hooping correctly, stabilizers to use, the right needles. Different fabric, such as velvet, terry cloth, thin knits all have a different way to hoop and stabilizer. I took classes at the shop I bought my machine and lots of classes at sewing conventions.
Go to a sewing machine store and have them give you a demo. Make sure to ask about used and older models for sale.

Viking, Pfaff and Bernina are good brands
