To someone who has no prior knowledge on embroidery, understanding how the complicated patterns are made is not easy. However, this can be a nightmare to those who do not know how to use machines in printing and creating embroidery as well. Use of machines is better than sewing with a hand-held needle because there are many designs which can be created and the patterns are complex. You need to be able to use machines in your work if you hope to make it in this venture.
Before you can start learning other things you should start by mastering the machine. Make sure you know the proper foot to use, how to attach such to the machine as well as design loading and selection. The other things you should keep in mind include making a particular design fit the sewing machine’s hoop setting, how to feed threads to the machine to include the needle and bobbin not to mention how an embroidery unit should be attached. After you have perfected the aforementioned issues, you can comfortably say you are a master of the machine.
If there is anything you do not understand, the user manual can be consulted. Do not be in a rush to do much when you are a beginner. It is a pity that many people who are just starting up in this field want to grow too quickly. There are easy things to master like lettering because they are beginner-friendly. The beginner-friendly tasks are not just meant to help you bag an achievement but also ensure you have mastered the machine well. There is nothing that kills the morale of newbies in this field than taking on projects they are not well prepared to handle.
If you have no idea of what printing and embroidery are all about, nothing will save you even if you get the best machine in the world. You need to enroll in classes for the same. You can never lose money in taking a class in an area you hope to pursue in the future because investing in learning those skills will help you scale to greater heights. It is good to dedicate all your time to learning if you want to start-up your business in the near future but going slow is not bad either as long as you develop the needed skills at the end.
Do not let learning end just because the lesson duration is over. By practicing constantly, you will be able to grasp all the details to stand on your own. Do not be discouraged if your progress is slow because you will eventually get where you want to be.
